Frozen Ever After

The Frozen Ever After ride at Epcot celebrates the anniversary of the day Princess Anna saved her sister, Queen Elsa. An unselfish act of true love thawed the frozen heart, ending the eternal winter. Guests travel through Wandering Oaken's Trading Post and Sauna, where they find Oaken in the sauna waving to them. Riders next board a boat and sail off into a winter wonderland, where they encounter Olaf and Sven. Guests are greeted with a rendition of "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?"

Riders next ascend a lift towards Elsa's ice palace. When they reach the top, they find Olaf ice skating and singing "For the First Time in Forever". Guests pass a singing Anna and Kristoff, while Sven sits on the side with his tongue stuck to a pole. Two gates open and guests see Elsa who sings "Let It Go" while conjuring ice. Riders then accelerate backward down a small dip, passing images of Elsa creating the ice palace.

There is no height requirement for this ride.
