Do you hear that sound? It’s the sound of Disney fanatics screaming in joy! (Or maybe it’s sounds of disgust…) Why? Because Stitch is out and Olaf is in.
According to a leaked press release dated for next week, Olaf’s Frozen Escape! will be joining the Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland. The updated attraction will find guests in a brand new interstellar attraction featuring the lovable snowman from Frozen, Olaf. This new attraction will see the popular and adorable character mistakenly captured by the galactic authorities who send him to a containment facility, where all kinds of mayhem breaks out.
According to the concept art, the Olaf! pre-show includes other characters from Frozen:
Once guests are seated in the round theater, they will receive a warm hug helping to encourage them to remain seated. The lights will dim and Olaf will appear right in front of guest’s eyes! Then, because he doesn’t have his personal snow cloud with him, Olaf starts melting, causing him to short-circuit the laser beams, therefore allowing him to be able to interact with guests.
This fantastic experience will feature cutting-edge audio, the feel of icy cold water droplets, and wait…do you smell carrots? Guests will also feel as though Olaf is sitting right there on top of their shoulders!
Once order is finally restored to the facility, Olaf will be sent to Walt Disney World, where he can spread the Frozen love wherever he can!
This attraction will be a welcome addition to the Magic Kingdom. Olaf is so lovable and is the perfect character to take over for much maligned Stitch’s Great Escape!
Speaking of Stitch, guests will be able to say aloha to Stitch’s Great Escape!, which opened in 2004, some time in the summer of 2015. Of course, Stitch’s Great Escape! replaced the extremely beloved ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter.
Olaf’s Frozen Escape! is slated to open sometime in 2016, and I’ll make sure to share additional details with you as soon as I learn them!
Oh…just one last thing…
