Anna and Elsa will have a new meet & greet home beginning April 20, in Princess Fairytale Hall at the Magic Kingdom park. They have been meeting guests in Epcot’s Norway Pavilion since November, this should be a much better location (and will include Fastpass+). The crowds for Anna and Elsa have really been a bit too much for Norway, it has often been hard to tell which line is for Anna and Elsa and which line is for margaritas in Mexico!
We expected Anna and Elsa to eventually arrive at the Magic Kingdom park, but figured they’d be in Town Square Theater or replace Princess Merida. At Princess Fairytale Hall, they will be available early in the morning, but it looks like they will be ending their appearances each day in the early evening to make way for other princesses.
Anna and Elsa have really taken the Disney parks and Disney Cruise Line by storm, more popular than any other character I can remember in recent memory. The meet-and-greet line in Norway has stretched as long as at least 4 1/2 hours!
We first met Anna and Elsa at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in October, where they spent just a couple of hours together greeting guests in advance of their Epcot debut. There was quite a nice “Frozen” backdrop for such a brief meet & greet. We only waited about 5 minutes, and went through the line with a friend at least twice. Even though the movie hadn’t come out yet, our coverage numbers showed tremendous interest.
Here is our first video meeting them:
Here they are in Epcot’s Norway Pavilion in November. The movie was still more than 3 weeks from it’s official debut, but the wait time was already an hour when we met them.
Here is our meet and greet video from Norway:
Anna and Elsa now appear each day in Disney’s Festival of Fantasy Parade! Anna is in her beautiful coronation gown.
We have a video of just Anna and Elsa with Olaf on the Princess float of the Festival of Fantasy Parade. This is a wonderful parade! They are actually on a section of the float that includes Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen on the other side – so as it turns, you may have either set of royals directly in front of you.
