'Frozen' Attraction Coming to Disney's Epcot
Arendelle lands in Florida
Disney is bringing Frozen to Florida.
A Frozen attraction is being planned for the Norway Pavilion in Epcot, Tom Staggs, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, announced Friday.
The new attraction, which will replace Maelstrom, is set in the fictional land of Arendelle. There also will be a greeting area where fans can meet Anna and Elsa, the main characters in the hit Disney animated film.
"We think these Frozen elements are great complements to the Norway Pavilion, which showcases the country and region that inspired the film," said Staggs in a statement.
Disney also is planning on expanding Frozen's presence at the Magic Kingdom Park in California over the holidays, transforming Cinderella Castle into an ice palace every night starting in early November.
Frozen became a cultural phenomenon after hitting theaters in November 2013. The musical film, starring the voices of Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel, has earned a stunning $1.27 billion worldwide.
