Epcot's Frozen meet and greet to offer extended hours

Feb 07, 2014 in "Norway (Pavilion)"

Posted: Friday February 7, 2014 7:52am EST by WDWMAGIC Staff

Between February 9 and February 15 2014, the Frozen meet and greet at Epcot's Norway Pavilion will be testing new operating hours. You will be able to meet Elsa and Anna from 9am through to 6pm, which is an extension of 2 hours in the morning.

The Frozen meet and greet has been massively popular, with wait routinely in excess of 2 hours, and even reaching 5 hours during the holidays.

Olaf would be useless unless he can give out warm hugs!

Thanks, I wish there was FP+ option 4 hour waits seem a little crazy

Hey guys hate to dig up a week old thread however I was just wondering if anyone knows if they have continued the extended hours after the 15th?

what about if they pulled a Dreamfinder/Figment with Kristoff/Olaf? Kristoff could be a face character carrying Olaf around...the arm carrying Olaf would be fake, as the CM's real arm would be operating Olaf as a puppet.... Thats a great idea actually, too bad Disney doesnt have such creative effort or want to spend the money like they use to.

Well, now it would be safe for Kristoff to meet, as there's little risk of anyone getting spoiled on the romantic subplots at this point. Olaf might be trickier because of his stick arms. Make them like in the movie, and the cast member would most likely have to keep his or her arms inside the body of the suit. If you just color sleeves brown, then there's the risk of Olaf's arms looking wrong.

Olaf and kristoff should be there! There's no excuse!

Matt_BlackFeb 16, 2014

Well, let's look at the next few films. Tangled- Pascal and Max would've been awkward, and villains don't always get the initial character meets. Pooh doesn't count as most of the characters already meet in some capacity. For WIR, Calhoun might not have been considered appropriate, which is a shame, because she's awesome. There's really no good explanation for Felix though. With Frozen, Olaf would be tricky, and if you have one male character and not the other, you run the risk of spoilers.

Well, know, it's understandable from one point. When Atlantis: The Lost Empire came out, they had outfits designed for Milo, Kida, Vinnie, and Mole, and that film didn't exactly set the world on fire. I can understand them wanting to be cautious until they're sure a movie is going to have staying power. They had been trending toward 3-4 with Robinsons, Bolt, Up, PatF

This meet and greet has suffered from poor planning from the very beginning. No forethought or planning at all. Kristoff and Olaf should have been included from the start. Ever since "Up" they've been cheaping out on character development. I'm shocked Vanellope got a last minute add

4hr waits this last week while we were there. I loved the movie and I can't even fathom that. Literally a third of your day if you went open to close.
