    When does the Frozen themed ride open in Epcot, at theme park opening or when the World Showcase opens? What is the typical stand by time if arriving at park opening? Plan on going mid week to Epcot

    Hi Kerry Ann,

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!  Frozen Ever After historically opens at park opening rather than when the World Showcase officially opens. When my family visited the weekend prior to Thanksgiving, we arrived at Epcot approximately 30 minutes before park opening. As soon as we entered the park, we headed straight to Frozen Ever After. The standby wait time was posted as 5 minutes, but had increased to 20 minutes by the time we finished riding the popular attraction. We definitely felt like our strategy worked well since we were unable to secure a FastPass+ selection for Frozen Ever After. 

    I hope this information has been helpful. If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to reach out again. Best wishes for a magical trip, Kerry Ann!

    Happy Planning,
