    Going to Epcot this Dec. and we have extra magic hrs in the morning. So opening will be at 8am. Website says Elsa/Anna meet & greet starts at 9am on a normal day, but with extra magic hrs in the am will they be available at 8am instead?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lisa!

    We are huge Frozen fans in my house, and are getting so excited for Frozen 2! I can’t wait to see what adventures my favorite royal sisters are going to get into when this epic-looking movie comes out this November!

    I consider a visit with Anna and Elsa at their Royal Sommerhus to be an Epcot must-do. Be sure to look carefully while you walk through the sisters’ summer home, as there are so many wonderful details that fill in the story of their childhood and family. I also recommend taking some time to think about what questions you have for Anna and Elsa, as they love to talk about Arendelle and all things winter. My kids have had some great conversations with them, and I had a lot of fun once with Elsa, who taught me how to conjure up icy powers (spoiler alert: I wasn’t as talented as she is).

    Lisa, Extra Magic Hours are one of my very favorite perks of being a Guest at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. On the Extra Magic Hours web page, you can see a list of which attractions should be open on most Extra Magic Hour mornings and evenings; note that the list is subject to change, as attractions do close for unexpected reasons. My family always heads to Frozen Ever After during morning Extra Magic Hours (we like to ride it more than a few times each visit). While meeting Anna and Elsa at their Royal Sommerhus is not a listed Extra Magic Hours attraction, I recommend checking at the entrance, which is right next to Frozen Ever After, to see if the sisters are ready a little early to meet Guests that day. 

    From one Frozen fan to another, I have to share my very favorite Frozen experience at the Walt Disney World Resort: don’t miss For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Your family will sing, smile, catch snowflakes, and laugh hysterically at this show – it’s like a warm hug! 

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
