Is a Disney Frozen attraction coming to Disney World Epcot park? There is a lot of talk right now on how Disney World may be getting a permanent new Frozen attraction. Following the huge success of the Frozen movie it would certainly make a lot of sense.
But where would they build a Frozen attraction and ride in Disney World? The source of the speculation about a Frozen attraction is The Disney Dish Podcast when Disney historian Jim Hill talks about a possibility of a ride built to replace Maelstrom in Epcot’s Norway Pavilion.
The idea of a Frozen attraction is certainly very exciting. The movie has been hugely successful and is already firmly in place as one of the Disney classics. Certainly a Frozen attraction is much needed for both Disney World and Disneyland. The Norway Pavilion in Epcot seems like the most likely location as already there are meet and greets there with Elsa and Anna. Epcot’s Norway Pavilion store also has Frozen merchandise (beats the seaters and troll selection for me).
But of course if a Frozen attraction is coming to Epcot this will be at the expense of another attraction, and this is most likely to be Maelstrom. Now I know that this is not the most exciting of Disney attractions but I would be so sad to see it go. It is incredibly dated, and not really very much of an advertisement for the beautiful country that it represents, but nonetheless it is one of those attractions that I always enjoy. I guess it takes me back to years ago when I first visited Epcot.
But Walt Disney himself was an innovator and realized that things have to constantly move on in the parks. It is certainly time for a Disney Frozen attraction.
What do you think? What would you like to see for a Disney Frozen attraction?
