For the First Time in Forever: The Ultimate Guide to Finding Frozen around Walt Disney World

Frozen is one of the most popular Disney movies EVER so it’s no surprise that there is a lot of Frozen fun to be had all around Walt Disney World! In fact, in three of the four theme parks, you can find Frozen characters, entertainment, and attractions.

We created this guide so that fans of the film can have a checklist of everywhere they can find Anna, Elsa, and Olaf, during regular park hours year-round. This makes us want to Olaf-style give warm hugs to everyone!

Magic Kingdom

Mickey’s Royal Friendship FaireTaking place several times a day on the Cinderella Castle stage, Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire is a lively, musical celebration featuring Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, and Daisy. They have invited friends from many kingdoms around the world — including Arendelle! Olaf, Elsa, and Anna are a big part of the party with a show-stopping performance of — what else? — Let It Go!

Festival of Fantasy ParadeDancing down Main Street USA daily (excluding special occasions) you’ll find this magnificent parade starring state-of-the-art floats, music, and so many characters! Of course, Anna and Elsa had to attend the occasion and can be seen on the garden Princess float, along with Belle, Tiana and Cinderella.

Once Upon a TimeProjected on Cinderella castle at night, Once Upon a Time immerses you into animated films such as Beauty and the Beast, Peter Pan, and of course, Frozen. The state-of-the-art technology and incredible music dazzles guests of all ages, so make sure to see it before (or sometimes after) the fireworks!

Happily Ever AfterA perfect way to end your day at Magic Kingdom, this show features incredible fireworks, lasers, projections, and an unforgettable score. Happily Ever After brings to life the feelings of heart, humor and magic from classic Disney films such as The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, Toy Story, Aladdin, and Wreck-it Ralph, in addition to Frozen. If you see one show at Magic Kingdom, see this one!

Epcot

Frozen Ever After – Located in the Norway pavilion, Kristoff’s “love experts” (the trolls) take you on a Viking boat tour through Arendelle. This ride features incredible audio-animatronics of your favorite characters, as well as the magical music from the film. As you can imagine, this attraction is very popular so we highly recommend snagging a FastPass, otherwise expect long waits!

Frozen Ever After

Frozen Ever After Dessert Party – This special dessert party is available now through Summer 2019, when Illuminations: Reflections of Earth is set to retire. Complete with Frozen-themed desserts, snacks, and beverages, the dessert party takes place prior to the fireworks. Shortly before the show, you will be escorted to reserved viewing of Illuminations. Following the finale, you will be guided to the Norway pavilion where you will gain VIP access (read, no line!) to ride Frozen Ever After. The Frozen Ever After Dessert Party is $79 for adults (10 and up) and $47 for children (ages 3 -9), and valid park admission is required. Reservations must be made in advance using the Walt Disney World website or by calling (407)-WDW-DINE.

Meet Anna & Elsa at the Royal SommerhusThis is the big one, folks! Also in the Norway pavilion, this is the ONLY place at Walt Disney World where you can meet Princess Anna and Queen Elsa on a regular basis. FastPass is not available at this meet and greet, but luckily the line for the Sommerhus is usually not crazy-long and moves quickly. If meeting the Frozen sisters in person is a must-do for you and your family this is the place!

Lyrics appear on screen throughout the show, and guests are encouraged to sing along to their favorite Frozen tunes. The sisters themselves make an appearance, along with Kristoff, making this a celebration that cannot be missed! Fastpass is available for this 30-minute show so the lines won’t bother you anyway.

Special Events

But wait! There’s more!

During the summer months, Disney World adds a dash of Frozen fun to its Blizzard Beach water park with the Frozen Summer Games. Olaf and Kristoff are on hand to oversee a variety of fun challenges for the water park visitors, as well as meet with their adoring fans.

And finally, if you’re visiting the World in November-December, you’ll have an additional opportunity to see Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf as they transform Cinderella Castle into a glistening ice palace during the nightly lighting ceremony known as A Frozen Holiday Wish.

That’s a lot of Frozen! And we didn’t even mention all of the Frozen merchandise that’s available throughout all the parks — from t-shirts and costumes to pins, jewelry and MagicBands, you can find Anna, Elsa and Olaf’s cheery faces emblazoned on all sorts of souvenirs that you can wear and take home with you.

  1. Why can’t they just leave EPCOT cartoon free?

    After taking your wee ones to MK, AK, and HS, for three days and having to endure a cartoon character sensory bombardment for their enjoyment, it’s now mommy and daddy time. If your kids can’t understand that spending a day letting me enjoy character free innovation, technology, and culture then it’s back to the orphanage for you.

    Although, the article on Millennials at WDW May have provided a clue as to why WDW has charactered up and dumbed down everything.
