I was a little annoyed when I heard that some of the musical acts at EPCOT were being replaced but this one takes the cake. Disney has seemingly decided that everything will be Frozen and with that the Maelstrom, one of the rides I go on almost every time I’m at EPCOT, will be replaced with a frozen themed attraction.

I appreciate the need for change, but as of late that has all circled around a movie that has more holes than a piece of Swiss cheese.

With the exception of Animal Kingdom, each of the parks has or will have something with the Frozen princesses currently. Hollywood studios has the Frozen Summer Celebration (the sing-a-long has been extended through the holiday season) and Magic Kingdom has the meet and greet and will be using Queen Elsa to freeze Cinderella’s Castle during this years Very Merry Christmas celebration. Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf will also appear in the park’s “Once Upon a Christmastime Parade.”

There has been no date given by Disney as to when exactly the change will happen but I expect for them to capitalize on the Frozen franchise as soon as possible. If you want to make one last trip on the Maelstrom, I recommend doing it soon.
