Since its release in 2013, Frozen has been beloved by fans of all ages. Because of this, there are plenty of opportunities to find your favorite characters in the parks! Elsa and Anna are not typically available in Animal Kingdom, but they can be found in Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and even Magic Kingdom! Not only are the characters available, but there are numerous experiences to help you really feel like a true Frozen fan. From meet and greets to rides, there is something fans of all ages will enjoy.
If this next Disney trip is your first time in forever, here is a guide for all things Frozen in the Disney theme parks.
Frozen Ever After – EPCOT
Suppose you consider yourself a fan of Frozen or have young children who still can’t stop singing “Let It Go” in the car. In that case, the Frozen Ever After Ride at Epcot is a must-do for your next Disney World trip. It is located in the Norway Pavilion of the World Showcase.
This 6-minute boat ride takes you through the plot of the first Frozen film. You’ll float by animatronics of your favorite characters, including Elsa, Anna, Olaf, Kristoff, and Sven. At the same time, they sing the various hits from the movie. This ride is safe for guests of all heights and ages, though there is a slight drop to be aware of.
Considering the popularity of Frozen, this attraction tends to have long wait times. Try heading straight to this ride when Epcot opens, or book a Lightning Lane to avoid waiting.
Meet Anna and Elsa at Royal Sommerhus – EPCOT
After your boat rides through Arendelle, you can meet Anna and Elsa at their summer cabin in the Norway Pavilion. These two sisters are available every day from 9:15 AM to 6:30 PM.
The wait for this character attraction is typically about 30 minutes but can also take an hour, depending on the time of day. Be sure to use the Disney World app on your phone throughout the day to try to make it to this attraction while the line is shorter.
For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration – Hollywood Studios
This Hollywood Studios attraction will have everybody singing along to the iconic “Let It Go.” The show is about 30 minutes and stars the two Royal Historians of Arendelle retelling the story of Frozen humorously and entertainingly. That will be sure to have even the adults laughing.
Fans of all ages are encouraged to sing along with the best songs from Frozen. It is important to note that the ice queen appears at the very end for big fans of Elsa. Most main characters only play a small role and are not on stage for 30 minutes, but you can still expect to see Elsa, Anna, and Kristoff. This attraction is a perfect way to escape for Florida heat for a half hour while singing along to your favorite Frozen songs.
Meet Olaf at Celebrity Spotlight – Hollywood Studios
If the sing-along wasn’t enough to get your daily dose of Frozen, you could meet everyone’s favorite snowman while in Hollywood Studios! This adorable meet and greet is in front of a summery beach backdrop, but don’t worry! Elsa has helped Olaf with some magic to ensure he doesn’t melt so that you can give him a friendly, warm hug.
Wait times to meet Olaf are usually about 20-30 minutes, but check the Disney app for times throughout the day.
Frozen Fractal Gifts – Hollywood Studios
Before you head home from your Disney World vacation, pick up some Frozen souvenirs! Frozen Fractal Gifts is a Frozen-themed gift shop that sells all sorts of goodies, from clothing to plushes inspired by your favorite characters of Arendelle.
Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade – Magic Kingdom
This 12-minute parade rides through Magic Kingdom every day at 12 and 3, as long as weather permits. While many of your favorite Disney characters are featured on various floats, Frozen fans will adore the snow-covered float where they can wave to Elsa and Anna as they ride past!
Mickey’s Magical Friendship Faire – Magic Kingdom
At the base of Cinderella’s castle, Mickey and his friends put together a musical performance to help everyone celebrate their favorite Disney characters. This fun performance involves music and dancing from multiple Disney films, including Elsa, Anna, and Olaf!
