I’m sure it won’t surprise you to learn that there are tons of princesses (and princes) who absolutely adore Anna, Elsa, and the rest of the gang. Lucky for them, there are also plenty of ways to get an amazing Frozen fix while visiting Walt Disney World. Whether you’re a parent hoping to please a child or a hardcore Frozen fan yourself, you won’t have to look far to find some pretty incredible Frozen experiences scattered throughout the parks. Still, it does help to know where to look. For this reason, we’ve made a list of the best places to find Anna and Elsa during your Disney World vacation.
1. Frozen Ever After
By far the most fun and exciting way to celebrate Frozen in the parks is by riding on the relatively new Frozen Ever After dark ride at Epcot. This attraction carries riders by boat to the adorable village of Arendel where they will see Olaf, Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, and several other Frozen friends. This ride is quite gentle, but does include some small drops and may get you a bit wet, so be prepared!
2. Anna and Elsa Meet-and-Greet
The ride above is great for getting a glimpse of the princesses, but it for many, only a face-to-face meet-and-greet will do. Luckily, meeting these two lovely ladies is completely feasible. Simply step into line at the Royal Sommerhus in Epcot, where both Anna and Elsa eagerly await the arrival of their visitors. Be sure to bring an autograph book and camera!
3. Frozen Sing Along Celebration
Epcot isn’t the only place to see your favorite Frozen friends; Hollywood Studios also caters to Frozen fans with their Frozen Sing Along Celebration. This show is a fabulous reselling of the Frozen story, with plenty of opportunities for the audience to sing along. It’s fun for the entire family, but especially for the belters in your group.
4. Meet Olaf
Another option for Frozen fans in Hollywood Studios is the Olaf meet-and-greet. The line is almost always short for this one, so squeezing it into your schedule shouldn’t be a problem at all. Best of all, you’ll go home with photos of you and your favorite snowman!
5. Festival of Fantasy Parade
For a quick glance at some of your favorite characters from the movie, make time to catch the Festival of Fantasy parade in Magic Kingdom. This parade runs every afternoon and is well worth seeing. Not only will you see a Frozen float, you’ll also catch a variety of other favorite characters such as Rapunzel, Peter Pan, and Tinkerbell.
6. Frozen Dessert Party
If you head back to Epcot in the evening, you might want to sign yourself up for the Frozen Ever After Sparkling Dessert Party. This nightly celebration includes Frozen-inspired desserts, a waterside viewing of “Epcot Forever”, and a special opportunity to ride Frozen Ever After without the long wait.
7. Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire
Another great chance to see Anna and Elsa is found in Magic Kingdom. Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire is a fun, upbeat show that takes place directly in front of the castle. It plays multiple times a day, so catching a show is never any trouble, and the performance will likely leave you singing and dancing for the rest of the day.
8. Frozen Fractal Gift Shop
Frozen-themed merchandise can be found throughout the parks. However, if you’re looking for a very high concentration of items featuring Anna, Elsa, and the rest of the gang, you may want to head to the Frozen Fractal gift shop in Hollywood Studios. This shop offers guests a huge selection of Frozen merchandise that is sure to please every fan.
9. Wandering Reindeer Gift Shop
Of course, if you happen to be in Epcot when your craving for a Frozen shopping spree strikes, you can always head to the Wandering Reindeer gift shop. This little store is located at the exit of Frozen Ever After and features a Frozen-inspired perfume, a number of toys, and enough Frozen-themed clothing to make your head spin.
These 9 attractions and shops should more than suffice when it comes to getting your Frozen fix. However, if you’re afraid they won’t, you can always bring the movie along for an end-of-day viewing!
