Whether you like it, hate it, or just couldn’t give a flying fig (personally, I haven’t seen it), the Disney movie Frozen has been a huge success for the Walt Disney Company.
Sometimes the popularity of a film can have an unexpected benefit. With all the hand-wringing among Disney fans about how The Walt Disney Company has been throwing all of its resources into Shanghai Disneyland at the expense of the Disney theme parks in the United States, everyone got a big surprise yesterday when the new ride “Frozen Ever After” opened at the Norway Pavilion in World Showcase at Epcot simply because they spent a lot of money on it and did a swell job.
Disney has used its state-of-the-art internal digital projection systems for the faces of the “human” characters and the Audio-Animatronic figures of Olaf are top of the line and move with great fluidity.
“Frozen Ever After” replaces “Maelstrom,” which I think was well liked simply because it was one of only two rides in World Showcase, the other being “Rio Del Tiempo” in the Mexican pavilion (which was clichéd and boring, but is now much more enjoyable since a rehab several years ago which added the Three Caballeros—Donald, Jose Carioca, and Panchito).
Originally, almost every country’s pavilion was supposed to have a film, show, or ride, though many were the victim of budget cutting. “Frozen Ever After” is destined to be extremely popular judging by its almost three-hour wait time yesterday.
