    Visiting WDW 3/2018, hoping to ride Anna and Elsa's ride in Norway and we don't have a fast pass - if the front of Epcot opens at 9, but the International area doesn't open until 11, what time should we arrive in order to avoid a long line?

    Hi Laura! Before you know it, you'll be on your way to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Thanks to the charm of the sweet sisters, Anna and Elsa, Frozen Ever After is a popular attraction in Epcot's Norway Pavilion. I make sure to take the trip through Arendelle each time I visit Epcot, and I can't help but sing-along during my travels! Even though World Showcase doesn't typically open until 11 a.m., Guests are actually allowed to sail away on Frozen Ever After beginning at 9 a.m. on most days. You can find the hours of operation for the specific day you plan on visiting on Frozen Ever After's web page. Arriving early, before park opening, is the best way to get ahead of the lines that get longer as the day progresses!

    After your journey, consider stopping by to meet Anna and Elsa at their summer home, Royal Sommerhus. I made two stops to visit with them on my last trip because they are so much fun to chat with! PhotoPass photographers are available in this meet-and-greet to capture your interactions with these friendly ladies, and I love looking back at the pictures taken and remembering the conversations we had.

    Another option to add-on to your trip to Epcot's Norway Pavilion, is to get an Advance Dining Reservation at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. Since you are only two months away from your trip, you may not find much availability at this restaurant, but I encourage you to keep checking. Sometimes reservations do open up!

    I hope you enjoy your trip to Arendelle! Tell Anna and Elsa I said, "Hello!"
