Anna and Elsa from Frozen have moved into Epcot’s Norway Pavilion

Anna and Elsa finally appeared at Epcot’s Norway pavilion on November 2, 2013 after a delay concerning some construction delays. Disney has taken the Puffin’s Roost and transformed it into a simple, yet nice meet and greet area for the ladies.  The entire queue waiting area is outdoors.  There is NO SHADE.  If you visit on a hot, sunny day or rainy day, bring an umbrella.  I arrived 15 minutes prior to the third set of the day which is 1:00 pm.  I met the Frozen ladies at 1:36 for a total wait time of 51 minutes.  The line for the second meet was closed at 1:05 p.m.  That means that group also waited at least 55 minutes for the next meet.  I recommend you follow my basic rule of Princess meets, ARRIVE EARLY.  Go there when the World Showcase opens and be first in line and then go visit Mulan.

You can find Anna and Elsa’s schedule with map here.

The Puffin’s Roost now has this temporary looking signage that translates as “Princess Place” in English.

The ladies are so popular on their first day that Mary Poppins and Bert(s) came over from the United Kingdom to pay a visit.Anna and Elsa Frozen Meet in Epcot Norway

There’s not a lot of decor in the room.  The room is quite small and understated with a bit of a Norwegian feel and a nice attractive window behind the characters.  Each of the ladies is quite beautiful.  I obviously haven’t seen the movie, but it appears that Anna (left) is quite friendly and upbeat.  I think she has a hopeful and caring spirit about her.  Elsa seems a little distant, almost chilly in her presentation, but I felt that was part of her characterization.

I told them I was hoping they would arrive the day before, but I was happy to finally see them after trying to meet them in the Kingdom of Hollywood Studios twice.  I thanked them for bringing in cooler temperatures on their day of arrival and we discussed our love for snow. I told them that we like to make snow men and that got them excited as we talked about Olaf.  I told them I do detailed Disney themed snow men like Mickey, Stitch and Phineas and Ferb.  I thought I’d add a couple of those shots at the end of the post.  Anna encouraged me to attempt to create an Olaf.  I told them we’d travel to a snowy area this winter and make an exact replica 🙂Anna and Elsa, Frozen, Norway, Epcot, Meet and Greet

In honor of Olaf, here’s a few of our custom made snow men.  Yes, they are 100% snow, there’s no armature inside any of them.Stitch, Snowman Goofy, Snowman Phineas, Snowman Mickey Mouse, Snowman Agent P, Snowman Ferb SnowmanWe don’t mess around when it comes to snow man creation.

  2. We waited 3.5 hours on Jan 22nd. From 1:30 – 5:00. Grandma did all the waiting and had fun in line meeting people from all over the world. Someone was buying her beers! Meeting Anna & Elsa was the highlight of my girls’ trip, we will never forget the experience. But sorda crazy, eh?

  3. I was really hoping they would be permanent! Are they moving or going away for good? It’s such a great movie and they are great characters! What a waste if they are only around for 1 month!

  4. On the Disney Parks blog, Disney indicates Anna & Elsa will only be in Norway until Jan 4, any word on that being extended?? We arrive on Jan 12, hoping they will stick around a little bit longer than just the holiday season.

  5. The World Showcase rope is actually beyond the Frozen M&G queue since Akershus serves breakfast. People started gathering in line around 10:15, though the official stanchions weren’t out until about 10:55.

  6. Thanks for all the detailed information Kenny! You never miss a beat! Love the snow characters. Up here in Brooklyn, I’m sure we have access to much more snow than you, and we’ve never attempted anything like that.

  7. Where are you held prior to world showcase opening? Are we able to line up at the meet and greet before 11 or are we held at ropes? Awesome snowmen (snow characters?) by the way!
