With lines commonly running from two to three hours, even seeing as long as five hour waits, Disney has decided to move Anna and Elsa from Frozen out of the Norway Pavilion in Epcot over to the Magic Kingdom to meet with guests.
The sisters will be relocated to the Princess Fairytale Hall in Fantasyland starting on April 20. This means that guests will also be able to make FastPass+ reservations to meet the sisters. (Keep in mind, this will likely be the hottest ticket in town. FastPass+ reservations are going to go extremely quick for the opportunity to meet these two.)
With this change, Cinderella and Rapunzel will continue to greet guests at Princess Fairytale Hall. (And if rumors are correct, these two will likely be greeting guests together now. Anna and Elsa will likely be greeting with a visiting Princess. These are just rumors, as of now.)
Also, keep in mind that Anna and Elsa’s meet and greet opportunity will last only until the early evening. After that time, other visiting Disney Princesses will be available to greet guests.
I could see this change coming from a mile away. The Norway Pavilion has become crazy crowded since this meet and greet opened up. With summer rapidly approaching, and with the lines being as long as we’ve seen, I’m not surprised that Disney wanted to find an indoor location for people to wait to meet these two. I visited the pavilion on my most recent trip in February twice, at two different times of the day (early afternoon and early evening), and the area was just packed.
Anna and Elsa will continue to meet at the Norway Pavilion at Prinsesse Plass up until the April 20 date, with their last day appearing at Epcot on April 19.
Guests who just want to see the sisters can now catch the two, plus Olaf, on the back on the Princess Garden float during the brand new Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade. Guests may continuing experiencing the Frozen gallery (called Norsk Kultur) inside the Stave Church at the Norway Pavilion. The artifacts found in the exhibit influenced the making of the movie.
I’ll be sure to keep you posted on more details about the popular Frozen meet and greet!
