^ Maybe they could/would add that as part of the Meet & Greet building, being built beside Maelstrom?
It's (apparently) such a huge building they're putting up, it wouldn't surprise me, that if there was more than
just the Greeting Area for Anna, Elsa et al, they could fit in something like this.

Tokyo DisneySea already confirmed that they're building a whole section themed to Frozen/Scandinavia. They haven't announced a new ride yet but I have no doubt it will blow a Maelstrom redo out of the water. Especially if the concept art is even somewhat accurate.

Still can't wait to see this new ride!

I am also curious whether they are keeping the reverse flume part of the ride?
And if so, by the sound of the ride description, it should happen when the other
trolls are met - like before, but not so angry, heh. :wink:
Or will they rebuild it, turning it into a completely forward traveling flume?

Well, judging by the concept art posted a couple of pages back the boat is facing Elsa on her balcony. Maybe she will use her icy powers to send the riders backward "over the falls"... =)

I heard a rumor that the entire load and unload area is being totally reworked. What I hope is that they condense the load/unload area into the space that was the old unload area. Like every modern ride, keep them in the same spot. That would free up everything past that for new scenes and story telling.

http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2015/06/taste-track-now-open-at-epcot-at-walt-disney-world-resort/?CMP=SOC-TWITTER20150623140000

Taste Track, a new food and beverage location at Epcot, is serving up a few new twists on the favorite sandwich. These specialty grilled cheese sandwiches are as creative as the cars you can design at nearby Test Track.

For a deliciously grown-up version of the grilled cheese sandwich, try the Gruyere and Applewood smoked bacon. Elevate your sandwich with the Fontina and tomato basil version. For a sweet take on the classic sandwich, try the Canadian cheddar and apples grilled cheese sandwich on cinnamon raisin bread. The crisp apple slices perfectly complement the melty cheese.

Each sandwich comes with your choice of tomato bisque soup or a side salad. Other menu items include roasted chicken salad and a kid’s grilled cheese sandwich.

Which grilled cheese sandwich are you excited to try? Let us know in the comments below!
