    Hello. We have a breakfast dining reservation at Akershus Epcot Norway at 805 AM. On February 8, 2017. What time does the Frozen ride in Norway open? We used our Fastpass for Test Track so that was not an option. Thanks for your help

    Hello Colleen! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Princess Storybook Dining at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall is my favorite Disney Princess Meet and Greet in all of Walt Disney World Resort. The combination of Medieval castle theme matched with excellent natural lighting in some areas for perfect photos, delicious family-style fare and meeting our favorite Disney Characters make it an Endlessly Magical experience for the entire family.

    The current Park Hours for February 8th, list a 9 a.m. opening for Epcot - Future World. However, the popularity of the new Frozen Ever After attraction at the Norway Pavilion in World Showcase has dictated that it open early with the rest of Epcot, even though World Showcase technically doesn't open until 11 a.m. If everything remains the same, that would mean that Frozen Ever After should open when Epcot - Future World opens at 9 a.m. on February 8th. Any scheduled times for attractions are subject to change without notice!

    Based on your excellent Advanced Dining Reservation time for Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, you are close to the Frozen Ever After Attraction around the same time that your dining experience is complete (assuming roughly 60 minutes for Akershus). My recommendation for experiencing Frozen Ever After without a Fastpass+ Reservation is within the first 30 minutes of park opening to take advantage of shorter (than average) queues, so get in line if the attraction is operating upon exiting Akershus Royal Banquet Hall.

    Colleen, you seem well prepared to experience both an amazing dining experience and a popular ride without too long of a wait (barring unforeseen circumstances).

    Have a Magical Vacation!
