When Walt Disney promised that Disneyland would never be completed, so long as there is imagination left in the world, he made a promise to our guests that we take seriously at all our locations around the world. This year, one particular product of imagination — Disney Animation’s blockbuster hit “Frozen” — captured the hearts and minds of people around the world and gave us a new opportunity to make good on Walt’s pledge.
We’ve made “Frozen” a part of the guest experience in a number of ways already and our guests have both loved them and asked for more. So I’m pleased to say that we’re starting construction at Walt Disney World Resort on a brand new “Frozen” attraction at the Norway Pavilion in Epcot. The new attraction, which replaces Maelstrom, will take our guests to Arendelle and immerse them in many of their favorite moments and music from the film. The pavilion will also include a royal greeting location where Anna and Elsa can meet our guests. We think these “Frozen” elements are great compliments to the Norway Pavilion, which showcases the country and region that inspired the film.
“Frozen’s” popular characters will also have a bigger presence at Magic Kingdom Park this holiday season. In addition to the ongoing character appearances, Queen Elsa will use her powers to transform Cinderella Castle into an ice palace every night starting in early November. And Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party-goers can see Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, and Olaf in “Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade.”
We’re extending some favorite elements of Frozen Summer Fun LIVE!, too, so that guests at Disney’s Hollywood Studios can continue singing along to “Frozen” songs with Queen Elsa and Princess Anna. Wandering Oaken’s will set up shop closer to the show through the holiday season and will feature a larger play area with real snow (in Florida!).
From the moment we screened the film several months before its release, we were inspired by the possibility of bringing this great story to life for our guests. Frozen Summer Fun LIVE! has been extremely popular, and now we’re looking forward to doing even more to allow our guests to experience the “Frozen” phenomenon.
Change the scheme, Alter the mood! Electrify the boys and girls if you would be so kind!
All right, so ever since I saw a post here about the mysterious chicken and waffle sandwiches at the Sleepy Hollow Inn in Magic Kingdom, I had to try them and when my family and I went there several days ago, we did. HOLY CRAP THEY ARE AMAZING! Even my finnicky wife was intrigued and got one, and she loved it. We'll have to try the ham and cheese waffle or the Nutella and banana waffle next time we go.

Um...maybe not finally? There's the plot of land all behind where Beauty & Beast Rest. and Mermaid ride intersect at the back, there? The path between them, could lead to the:
Blue Sky Rumor, that there was ample room to build an an entire Villains Land behind Fantasyland, with Mt.Doom towering up behind it all, as this land's centerpiece.
Just a memory of it. Would be awesome, if possible.
(EDIT to add: And then they could bring back Alien Encounter!)
Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that they're pretty much certain to not add anything (certainly not anything guest-based) any further "back" than the existing structure, due to fallout from the fireworks. If you go out to the service road area (Magic Kingdom Drive) behind Pinnochio's/Be Our Guest after Wishes, there's definitely large shells spread around on the pavement. Also, the fireworks are supremely loud in that area, so it couldn't possibly be pleasant for a large number of people...
I'm too ADD to count coasters, I just ride them over again!
