This week, Tom Staggs shared the exciting update that construction is starting at the Walt Disney World Resort on a brand new “Frozen” attraction at the Norway Pavilion in Epcot. The new attraction, which replaces Maelstrom, will take you to Arendelle and immerse you in many of their favorite moments and music from the film.
Tom also shared that “Frozen’s” popular characters will have a bigger presence at Magic Kingdom Park this holiday season. Queen Elsa will use her powers to transform Cinderella Castle into an ice palace every night starting in early November and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party-goers can see Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, and Olaf in “Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade.”
At Disneyland Park, The Happiest Place on Earth will get merrier once again with the following favorites:
- “A Christmas Fantasy” parade
- “it’s a small world” Holiday
- Haunted Mansion Holiday
- Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle
- “Believe … in Holiday Magic” fireworks spectacular
