Description And Comments

Frozen Ever After is a nice boat ride through the pretend kingdom of Arendelle. The premise is that you’ve arrived just in time for the Winter in Summer celebration, in which Elsa will use her magical powers to make it snow during the hottest part of the year. Nearly every major and minor character from the film is represented, from Olaf the snowman to Sven the reindeer, along with much of the soundtrack’s songs with brand-new lyrics.

Be aware that there’s a short, mild section where you’re propelled backwards for a few seconds, followed by a short downhill and small splash that most kids should take in stride. The ride’s detailed sets are augmented with digital projection mapping and more than a dozen animatronics sporting video-screen faces (like Seven Dwarfs Mine Train) demonstrating some of the most spookily sophisticated movements we’ve ever seen; watch the fluidity of Elsa’s wrists and elbows during the pivotal “Let It Go” scene, and weep for a future of robotic massage parlors.

Touring Tips

Unlike most of World Showcase, Frozen Ever After is supposed to open as soon as Epcot does. Along with Soarin’ and Test Track, it’s one of the three attractions that most guests head to first.

We say “supposed to” because Frozen Ever After experiences more breakdowns than most Walt Disney World attractions. If you’re planning to see Frozen Ever After first thing in the morning, ask a cast member if it’s running before you hike all the way to Norway.

Along with its popularity and frequent breakdowns, Frozen Ever After can handle only around 900 riders per hour, making it one of the biggest bottlenecks in Epcot. The opening of Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure in 2020 should divert much of the park-opening crowds from Frozen.

Frozen Ever After Wait Times

This chart shows you roughly how long you'll wait for Frozen Ever After when you visit on a day with a given EPCOT Crowd Level. The blue bars represent the average "peak" wait time (that is, how long the line will be at its busiest). The bottom and top black lines represent the range of peak wait times to expect (for you fellow nerds out there: it's the 5th percentile and 95th percentile of peak wait times). Please note that these are estimates, and for a better forecast for your travel dates, see Frozen Ever After Wait Times.
