This week we are staying in the Norway Pavilion at Epcot, and discovering an experience unlike any we have talked about on the podcast to date. While I love me a good Disney ride or show, there is another magical way to experience the parks. I’m talking about Character Meet’n’Greets! This is your chance to come face to face and interact with some of your favorite Disney characters. Trust me, these encounters can be some of the most memorable moments from a trip to Walt Disney World.
The Magic Kingdom is usually the first park that comes to mind when thinking about Disney characters. While there are a lot of incredible character experiences at this park, it is not the only one with a wide range of characters. Epcot may surprise you when it comes to its international mix of characters available. Of course, none are more famous than the sisters from Arendelle. Today we are going to tell you where to find Anna & Elsa!
Today’s ride is one I have been waiting for almost a year to ride. I’m so happy to say that I had the opportunity on my recent Disney vacation to finally set sail to Arendelle. That’s right, we got to celebrate Summer Snow Day with Anna, Elsa, and the rest of the crew as we took a boat ride on Frozen Ever After.
One of our favorite experiences from our recent trip to Walt Disney World was an interactive game in Adventureland called A Pirate’s Adventure – Treasures of the Seven Seas. We had never taken the time to discover what this little adventure was all about until this trip. We knew from our Disney Cruise that our nephew James, loved the interactive game offered on the Disney Cruise Line. So, before we went to WDW I started looking at the various games offered in the parks. I read up on the Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom, Agent P’s Adventure in Epcot, and A Pirate’s Adventure in Adventureland. For reasons we will discuss in just a moment, I decided the Pirate’s Adventure seemed like the best option for this trip. However, I had no idea it would be as big of a hit as it turned out to be. I’m so excited to tell you all about it today.
Today we visited the Magic Kingdom and introduced our niece and nephew to the most magical place on Earth. They loved it! We didn’t wait more than 15 minutes for any ride, took a 3 hour break and the afternoon, and still managed to do a whole lot.
