The latest Disney movie “Frozen”- about two princess sisters, one of which froze her kingdom, has sparked some ideas for an all new themed attraction rumored to first be placed in the Norway Pavilion at EPCOT.
Disney historian- Jim Hill, commented in an appearance on the Disney Dish Podcast that Disney has something planned for “Frozen” in the theme park world. According to Moviefone, the Norway pavilion at EPCOT would be an ideal place for the “Frozen” themed ride because they had exclusive movie merchandise and character meet and greets before the movie even premiered.
"That's really filtering out. They're already looking at 2014/2015 and where does that fit into our holiday plans," said Hill. "Those of you who love the Maelstrom might want to go visit it." Since Maelstrom- Norway’s boat ride attraction, opened in 1988 it has been one of the World Showcase’s brightest spots, but it seems to be coming to an end explained Hill.
Hill also went on to explain that Disney will not be making the same mistake they made with “The Little Mermaid” attraction at Disneyland and Fantasyland. Ariel’s Underwater Adventure opened nearly 20 years after the movie was in theaters, opening May 26, 2011 at Disney California Adventure and on October 12, 2012 at Fantasyland. "There will be something in the next 18 months. Supposedly there's something larger in the works for Disneyland but that's in line behind the Marvel and the 'Star Wars' stuff" added Hill.
