Epcot FROZEN Ride Concept Art and Details Released, To Be Called “Frozen Ever After”

Walt Disney World has released the first concept art for the upcoming FROZEN attraction at Epcot, which will be called “Frozen Ever After”.

Elsa replaces the three-headed troll from Maelstrom, as guests enter her ice palace and then are sent careening backwards

The Wall Street Journal today released exclusive information about the project.

Despite many pictures and reports of demolition inside the Maelstrom attraction, the flume has been preserved (and possible the boat vehicles) and it appears the ride will follow the same path, but with all-new scenes featuring audio-animatronics utilizing technological advances seen in such attractions as the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train in New Fantasyland.

The attraction is set in the summer in Arendelle, taking guests past familiar venues in the queue, such as Wandering Oaken’s Trading Post.

The ride begins with Sven and Olaf preparing for a festival before the trolls appear to tell the story of how Anna and Kristof met. Olaf will then appear to sing and ice skating with Anna, Kristof, and Sven.

Guests will then barge into Elsa’s icy palace, where they will see her singing “Let It Go” as the boat changes course and begins to travel backwards. Marshmallow the snow-monster and the “Snowgies” who appear in the “Frozen Fever” short will join in the singing as guests plunge into the finale with Elsa, Anna, Olaf, Sven and Kristof saying goodbye.

“Frozen Ever After” is set to open in May 2016 in the Norway pavilion at Epcot along with a new FROZEN meet and greet pavilion.
