Frozen Ever After Ride in EPCOT

Located in the Norway pavilion of EPCOT’s World Showcase, the Frozen Ever After ride immerses guests into the world of Disney’s hit movie, “Frozen.” The popular EPCOT ride takes guests on a journey through the kingdom of Arendelle and features scenes and characters from the film, such as Anna, Elsa, Olaf, Sven, and Kristoff.

Before the ride begins, guests will go through a queue that winds through a Norwegian town and takes them through Wandering Oakens Trading Post.

Those that are using Lightning Lane will bypass Wandering Oakens Trading Post and go straight through to the boat boarding process.

As guests board their ship, they will see that they have been invited to a Snow Day celebration at the Ice Palace.

The Snow Day Celebration is celebrating the day that Anna saved Elsa with an act of true love.
