Since hearing the news that the Maelstrom ride would be replaced with a Frozen attraction in the Norway pavilion, many visitors to Walt Disney World are craving details on what will be coming to the parks. Yesterday, some details were found by media outlets showing the pavilion is to be expanded into the area in between the Norway and Mexico pavilions. For those that remember, this area was once occupied by a children’s play area that included a full-scale viking ship.

Now, Queen Elsa and her bunch will be expanding their kingdom to include a “Disney guest attraction and women’s restroom” according to documents filed with the South Florida Water Management District and Reedy Creek Improvement District. The 13,000 square foot building, according to images in the document, will house a meet and greet area although the details of which characters from the movie will be there. As we saw during the “Frozen Summer Fun” event at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and the castle light-up show at Magic Kingdom, there were four total characters (Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf) that park goers could see. With the success of Anna and Elsa at Magic Kingdom, don’t be surprised if the queen and princess are the only two characters there. However, Disneyland has been experiencing with an Olaf meet and greet area.

The Arendelle areas are rumored to open sometime in 2016, but no official word has been given on openings of these areas. Until those days are announced, many will just need to “let it go.”
