CONFIRMED: Frozen Attraction Coming to Epcot; Maelstrom to Close October 5th, 2014 After 26 Years
Well, it’s official…
We’ve made “Frozen” a part of the guest experience in a number of ways already and our guests have both loved them and asked for more. So I’m pleased to say that we’re starting construction at Walt Disney World Resort on a brand new “Frozen” attraction at the Norway Pavilion in Epcot. The new attraction, which replaces Maelstrom, will take our guests to Arendelle and immerse them in many of their favorite moments and music from the film. The pavilion will also include a royal greeting location where Anna and Elsa can meet our guests. We think these “Frozen” elements are great compliments to the Norway Pavilion, which showcases the country and region that inspired the film.
No closing date was confirmed, but in addition to our original report, we’ve now also heard the date may be October 7th. Regardless, Maelstrom is out for a Frozen attraction that is slated for completion in early 2016.
UPDATE: Maelstrom will close at the end of the day on October 5th, 2014.
