In September I finally got to experience the Norway Pavilion in Epcot. Frozen is one of my favourite Disney films and if you love it to, you won’t want to miss it. The incredible detailing of the Pavilion makes you forget that you are in Disney World in Florida and transports you to the city of Oslo.
Here is where you can meet the famous Frozen Sisters, Anna and Elsa. You can also ride on Frozen Ever After which, is the most beautiful ride I have ever been on. Let’s hope Disneyland Paris gets something similar in the future.
Sommerhus Meet Anna & Elsa
The interaction with Anna and Elsa was so magical and worth waiting for, and the PhotoPass Photographer captured some great moments. The queue’s aren’t that long anymore either so, make sure you go and visit them in their home! The day we visited, we got really lucky as Kristoff was hanging around the Sommerhus. Hopefully, he will be placed there for the future.
Norsk Kultur Exhibit
Once you’ve met the Frozen Sisters, make sure you head next door to Norsk Kultur which, is a Frozen inspired Gallery. Here you can see where the Animators got their inspiration from for the film. I am glad I popped in here, it is worth a visit.
At the Pavilion, there is also a little bakery which is filled with amazing treats from Norway and cupcakes that look like the Trolls. The smell from the bakery is delicious, I’m sure Anna and Elsa approve of the chocolatey treats sold here.
Make sure you also pop into the gift shops. Not only do they have Frozen merchandise but, they also have gifts from Norway too!
Frozen Ever After
The Frozen attraction itself is something I was rather hesitant of riding but, with encouragement I managed it. If you feel motion sickness no need to worry for this ride. The queue’s theming is amazing as it makes you feel like you are in the city of Arendelle. Make sure you spot the Northern Lights too. The visuals are breathtaking and you are fully surrounded by them. There are a few drops and one that goes backwards as Elsa pushes you out of her Ice Castle and, you come face to face with Marshmallow. Olaf, Kristoff and Sven are also present and the music is beautiful. I recommend getting a few FastPasses for this wonderful ride as the wait time can be up to 80 minutes.
The Norway Pavilion is definitely my favourite out of all the ones I visited at Epcot. It has made me want to visit the real city of Oslo in the future, to see where all the inspiration of one of my favourite Disney films came from in real life.
Have you visited this wonderful Pavilion in Epcot before? Let me know your thoughts!
