    In Epcot, The World Showcase does not open until 11 but Elsa and Anna are listed for 9 am. Is there a special entrance to go see them in the morning?

    Hi Ekaterina,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thank you for your question. All these years later, my family still has Frozen fever, and my son, King Elsa, insists on meeting his favorite royal sisters every time we visit Walt Disney World.

    You’re correct that Epcot’s World Showcase doesn’t open until 11:00 a.m., but there are some exceptions to that. Because of the mega popularity of the Frozen Ever After attraction, the Norway pavilion is in fact open when the park opens, and Guests can also head to the France pavilion for some delicious breakfast treats and coffee at Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie. 

    Ekaterina, to get to Anna and Elsa’s Royal Sommerhus inside the Norway pavilion, you don’t need to use any special entrance. Just head to the World Showcase and pass Mexico (you’ll notice that the entrance to the Mexico pavilion's pyramid is roped off, but you’ll be able to pass through). After meeting the sisters or riding Frozen Ever After first thing in the morning, my family really enjoys getting a snack at Kringla Bakeri og Kafe (my favorite is the Rice Cream, but there are lots of delicious pastries and treats there) and sitting by the water.

    Have so much fun meeting Anna and Elsa! They are really fun to talk with – my advice is to think about questions you want to ask them in advance. On a recent trip, my daughter was wearing a shirt with ice cream on it, and Anna ended up having a long chat with her about the best ice cream shop in Arendelle and everyone’s favorite flavors. Those are the magical moments you’ll treasure.

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
