One of the most popular and beloved Disney animated films of all time is Frozen which was released in 2013 and followed by Frozen II in 2019 as well as an array of shorts and specials. The film features Guest favorites like Anna, Elsa, Olaf, Sven, and Kistoff as well as several popular songs including the mega hit “Let It Go” which became the anthem of Disney songs for a period after the film was released.
With such popularity, Frozen quickly began to make its way into the Disney Parks at the Walt Disney World Resort, and Guests who visit today can enjoy several wonderful attractions and experiences that bring the animated story to life. From live entertainment to warm hugs and everything in between, here are all of the Frozen experiences that Guests can enjoy at the Walt Disney World Resort.

Frozen Ever After
Since Frozen is set in Norway, it is no surprise that the Norway Pavilion in EPCOT’s World Showcase is home to some amazing attractions and experiences that bring the animated film to life. Frozen Ever After is the main attraction in the pavilion and continues the story from the film with Elsa hosting a summer festival in the kingdom of Arendelle and all Guests are invited.
Frozen Ever After features many memorable scenes including the lovable trolls, Anna and Kristoff singing together, Olaf and Sven getting into hijinks together, and Elsa belting out “Let It Go” from her castle balcony. It’s a lighthearted and fun attraction that allows Guests to feel a part of the story, and the audio-animatronics are incredibly lifelike making it feel as though the characters are truly alive!
Also found in the Norway Pavilion in EPCOT’s World Showcase is the Royal Sommerhus, the summer cabin of Anna and Elsa. While Guests previously were able to enter inside of the Royal Sommerhus to meet with the sisters, current safety restrictions have the duo standing outside of the cabin waiting to greet Guests and interact. Decked out in their outfits from Frozen II, Anna and Elsa love sharing stories with Guests, posing for photos, and chatting about all things Arendelle. Guests who do enter into the Royal Sommerhus should check out the amazing including a subtle reference to Maelstrom, the attraction that existed in the Norway Pavilion for years before being replaced by Frozen Ever After.

Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade
Another great location to spot Anna and Elsa waving to fans is Main Street, U.S.A. in Magic Kingdom. Each afternoon the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade makes its way down Main Street with a catchy soundtrack and whimsical floats that features fantasy elements and favorite characters.
