Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Tom Staggs just made Frozen fans very happy. Not only did he promise that favorite characters from Frozen will have a larger presence at the Magic Kingdom parks and in the Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade, there are also plans in the works for a brand new Frozen attraction at Walt Disney World Resort’s Norway Pavilion in Epcot. Staggs also revealed that they’re extending parts of the “Frozen Summer Fun LIVE!” at Disney’s Hollywood Studios so that fans of the blockbuster movie can keep singing along with Queen Elsa and Princess Anna.

Here’s the details on the upcoming Frozen attraction straight from Disneyland’s official blog by Chairman Tom Staggs:

When Walt Disney promised that Disneyland would never be completed, so long as there is imagination left in the world, he made a promise to our guests that we take seriously at all our locations around the world. This year, one particular product of imagination — Disney Animation’s blockbuster hit Frozen — captured the hearts and minds of people around the world and gave us a new opportunity to make good on Walt’s pledge.

We’ve made Frozen a part of the guest experience in a number of ways already and our guests have both loved them and asked for more. So I’m pleased to say that we’re starting construction at Walt Disney World Resort on a brand new Frozen attraction at the Norway Pavilion in Epcot. The new attraction, which replaces Maelstrom, will take our guests to Arendelle and immerse them in many of their favorite moments and music from the film. The pavilion will also include a royal greeting location where Anna and Elsa can meet our guests. We think these Frozen elements are great complements to the Norway Pavilion, which showcases the country and region that inspired the film.

Staggs didn’t reveal when visitors to Epcot can expect to be able to check out the new Frozen attraction.
