    Planning a trip this Dec. (week after the new Frozen 2 movie comes out), we are staying on DW property and Epcot has Extra Magic hours in the morning that day we are going. Website shows she appears at 9am, but with extra magic hours is she there at 8am?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lisa!

    You've picked such an exciting time to come to Walt Disney World Resort. The weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas are my absolute favorite time of year to visit! The theme parks and Resort Hotels are beautifully decorated for the holiday season, and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party will be in full swing at Magic Kingdom Park on select nights of your vacation. You should also stop by Epcot and take in a showing of the Candlelight Processional! It's one of my favorite ways to kick off the holiday festivities.

    Since you're talking about coming the week after Frozen 2 comes out, I'm guessing you're asking about meeting Anna and Elsa at the Royal Sommerhus in the Norway Pavilion at Epcot. During Extra Magic Hours in the morning, the royal sisters are still getting ready to meet their new friends but the attraction right next door, Frozen Ever After, opens early for Extra Magic Hours so I would suggest heading straight there in the morning! You can enjoy a boat ride through Arendelle up to Elsa's ice palace, and then be perfectly placed to get in line for when Anna and Elsa begin holding court at 9 a.m. 

    Say hi to Sven for me, Lisa!
