PHOTOS - Take a tour through the Royal Sommerhus at Epcot's Norway Pavilion

Jun 20, 2016 in "Royal Sommerhus"

Royal Sommerhus overview

The Royal Sommerhus is now open at Epcot's Norway Pavilion, completing the first phase of the Frozen expansion.

Built on unused land between the existing Norway Pavilion and the Mexico Pavilion, the Royal Sommerhus expands the existing village area with an indoor character meet and greet, The Wandering Reindeer shop and expanded restrooms.

The new area is beautifully themed, similar to the look of the new Fantasyland additions at the Magic Kingdom, especially with the rock work and grassy rooftops.

The Frozen meet and Greet

Until the Frozen Ever After ride opens on June 21, the meet and greet with Anna and Elsa is the main event, and their new home is wonderfully detailed.

Unlike the original Magic Kingdom Frozen meet and greet, there is no FastPass+, so it is standby only.

An exterior queue leads into the Sommerhus.

Inside, the detailing and finish is extremely well done.

The meet and greet is setup similar to the Princess Fairytale Hall, with both Anna and Elsa in a single room. So a single wait will let you meet both Anna and Elsa.

The Wandering Reindeer

It wouldn't be an Epcot Pavilion without a gift shop, so as you exit the meet and greet you find yourself inside The Wandering Reindeer. It also has its own dedicated entrance and store front.

Inside you'll find all the Frozen merchandise you could ever want.

View the Royal Sommerhus gallery for more photos.

We'll be back tomorrow for a look at the Frozen Ever After ride.
