Walt Disney World Resort has been dubbed the Most Magical Place on Earth, and for good reason!
Between the Disney characters roaming the theme parks and the amazing effects used in attractions, Walt Disney World is an incredibly immersive place.
Everything from the decor to the music being played has been carefully curated in order to preserve the Disney magic for Guests. That being said, the illusion is shattered so easily. Who would have thought that the Walt Disney Company would be the one to ruin its own magic for Guests?
Okay, we admit, that’s a dramatic thing to say. But in the case of EPCOT’s Frozen attraction, it’s the truth!
There’s no doubt about it: Frozen Ever After is easily one of the most popular EPCOT rides. The lines are perpetually long, and it seems that the crowds can never get enough of Queen Elsa, Princess Anna, Kristoff, Sven, and Olaf.
However, these Disney characters look a little worse for wear in this attraction…

Frozen Ever After is a boat ride that takes Guests into the world of Frozen (2013), but the special effects have definitely overstayed their welcome.
In fact, it’s not uncommon for one of the projected faces to totally malfunction, leaving Guests with a frightening image, such as this picture taken just a couple of days ago!
This leads many Guests to call for updated animatronics, such as the fantastic Queen Elsa puppet made for Hong Kong Disneyland’s Frozen attraction.

So, what can be done about these projection faces? Well, the real question is, “what will be done?”
Unfortunately, while everyone knows the Walt Disney Company can fix many outdated special effects, it’s much easier to let the natural wear and tear compromise attractions until it’s time to replace them.
