After taking a magical adventure on Frozen Ever After, for the first time in forever, I can say if you are a Frozen fan or have one in your family you want to go on this ride! The downside, Frozen Ever After typically always has a standby line of over a 100 minutes. I won’t spoil the attraction for you but if you are wondering if this ride is suitable for your family, it does have the same ride path as before. You will encounter small drops and backward movement and maybe even get wet!
Get a Fastpass+
Your best shot to get on the ride with the shortest wait is to book a Fastpass+ for Frozen Ever After. These Fastpasses sell out almost immediately so be sure to book at 7 am 60 days out for resort guests and 30 days out for everyone else. Don’t worry if you can’t get a time, there is one other thing you can try. Day of Disney releases a small amount of Fastpass+, so at 7 am the morning you are going to Epcot you can try one last time to score Fastpasses for your family.
Rise and Shine
Get to Epcot for park open, this is typically when the parks are the slowest. Even during the busiest times of the year, you will find shorter wait times first thing in the morning. Part of this has to do with the fact that Fastpass+ can’t always get booked right for park open.
Surviving the Wait
I think we can all agree that being stuck in a long line at Disney really stinks. The great thing about Disney World is as they update the rides they are making the queues more interesting. Frozen Ever After is no exception, pay close attention when you reach the sauna room door, you may encounter a familiar friend. There is so much to see while waiting in line, it is completely different from Maelstrom.
Hang Around until the Park Shuts Down
Not a morning person? No worries, getting in line just as the park closes is just as effective as rushing in first thing in the morning. All the Disney theme parks allow people to get in line right up until park close, despite how long the line is. We just tested this out the other night and got in line for Frozen Ever after 10 minutes before Epcot closed and only waited 15 minutes! The line was just about to the door but since Fastpass+ was basically done for the evening the line moved way faster than it typically does during the day.
Don’t Forget to Smile
Frozen Ever After wouldn’t be complete without an on-ride photo. This one is a little different from most other Disney attractions. You must wear your MagicBand and it will automatically show up in your Photopass account. The picture is taken during the drop at the end of the ride, so don’t forget to smile!
Stop In and Say Hi to Anna and Elsa
Okay, this one isn’t going to get you the ride but it’s a fun bonus! Whether you get a chance to get on the attraction or not you should head on over to Royal Sommerhus to get a chance to say hi to Anna and Elsa. This is their new meet and greet location (formerly located over at the Magic Kingdom). The Royal Sommerhus is next to the Attraction Frozen Ever After but on the side closer to the Mexico Pavilion. Remember where the bathrooms used to be in Norway? You can now find new Frozen bathrooms along with Royal Sommerhus.

I have been visiting the parks annually since my parents first brought me at just a year old. Recently I was able to fulfill my life long dream of being a Florida local and moved from the wintery Northeast to the sunshine and fun of central Florida. Now I am hoping to share my Disney knowledge with you so you can have the best vacation possible!
