With the opening of the wildly anticipated Frozen Ever After attraction, Anna and Elsa’s Royal Summerhus also debuted. Located in the Norway Pavilion of Epcot, you will find the sisters’ summer cabin where they are waiting to greet you. Fastpass+ is not available to meet Anna and Elsa, but good news – you don’t need it! With the popularity of the re-imagined Maelstrom, now known as Frozen Ever After, the meet and greet has much shorter wait times.
DIStracted Tip: If you are interested in experiencing Frozen Ever After, get a Fastpass+ if possible. Or plan on getting to the attraction early. During our summer visit, the wait times ranged from 90 to 180 minutes during the day.
The Royal Summerhus queue will bring you through Anna and Elsa’s cabin. The exterior is designed to fit into the Norway Pavilion and the interior looks like you’ve stepped into Anna and Elsa’s world.
During our visit, there were PhotoPass photographers stationed to take pictures of you and your family at both sisters’ areas. Anna was fun, exuberant, playful – just as you would imagine she would be. Upon meeting my teen-aged son who was wearing orange shorts, Anna said to him, “Um, can I have your arm and by the way, your pants look like carrots.” Elsa was friendly, a bit reserved – just as a Queen would be.
Our family never felt rushed and the interactions with the sisters were great. So if you didn’t get to meet Anna and Elsa when they were at Princess Fairytale Hall in the Magic Kingdom because of the long wait times, you will be very pleasantly surprised at Epcot. Are you looking forward to meeting Anna and Elsa?
