Ride Length: 5 Minutes

Great for All Ages

Open since June 21, 2016

Location: Norway, Epcot

Located in the Norway Pavilion in Epcot, Frozen Ever After is a family friendly boat ride featuring the characters and songs of Frozen with a few mild thrills along the way. Taking place after the events of Frozen, guests board a boat and set sail during Arendelle’s “Summer Snow Day.” This ride is not a retelling of the movie, but it does feature some familiar sights and sounds. Guests will float through a frozen willow forest, experience Troll Valley, and journey all the way to Queen Elsa’s Ice Palace.

This combination of dark ride and boat ride features some of Walt Disney World’s most advance audio-animatronics to date. At 5 minutes, Frozen Ever After has a nice, medium length that will keep guests engaged throughout. The boat does travel backwards at one point, followed by a minor drop akin to what you find in Pirates of the Caribbean.
