Frozen gingerbread display at the Walt Disney World Resort

Disney’s animated feature Frozen has taken the world by storm since its 2013 theatrical release, so it’s not surprising that the company is doing everything possible to populate the world with more Frozen. For example, there’s already plans for a new theatrical short, Frozen Fever; a Broadway musical; and a new attraction at Disney World’s Norway Pavilion at EPCOT to replace The Maelstrom.

The Frozen characters already have a huge presence at Disney World, and now, they’ve been incorporated into Disney World’s Contemporary Resort’s massive Gingerbread display. Check out the video here below that gives a behind-the-scenes look at the Frozen display, which is just one of many Gingerbread showcases throughout the Florida theme park.

The end of the Studio Backlot Tour mirrors the major changes irrefutably in store for the park in the near future. Let’s remember the attraction and imagine the possibilities in store for the park with this newly available space.

If you have the opportunity to visit Walt Disney World, you must know which rides and shows everyone queues up for at the start of the day. At Epcot, all race toward Soarin’ or Test Track. For Animal Kingdom, Expedition Everest, and Kilimanjaro Safaris bring the longest lines. But many attractions are often unfortunately overlooked, namely because many other spectacles distract guests’ attention.

The purpose behind this Disney In Depth is to honor the many shows, exhibits, films, and rides that may be forgotten in the mix of the most popular attractions at Walt Disney World. Here are my 10 Most Overlooked Walt Disney World Attractions.

Frozen Magic Kingdom Cinderella Castle Disney World

Since its 2013 release and subsequent smash success at the box office, Disney’s Frozen has had a presence in its Disney World theme park. There’s the “Anna and Elsa’s Royal Welcome” meet and greet with Queen Elsa and Princess Anna in EPCOT; the “For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration” singalong in Disney’s Hollywood Studios; the “Frozen Fireworks Spectacular” at the Magic Kingdom,” and much more, all of which has been met with great reception. So, it’s no surprise that Disney has plans to expand the world of Frozen further into their theme park.

Disney has announced plans for a Frozen attraction at the Norway Pavilion in the World Showcase portion of Disney World’s EPCOT park. Construction will begin soon to refurbish the current Maelstrom ride, which will close after October 5, 2014. The new Frozen attraction is said to bring guests to Arendelle, immersing them in moments and music from the film.

Blue Avatar Lights Twinkle On Disney World's Animal Kingdom Tree Of Life

At last summer’s D23 Expo, we got a tiny glimpse at what the Disney Imagineers have in mind for their Avatar-themed expansion at Disney’s Animal Kingdom at the Disney World Resort. Ground broke back in January at the Orlando theme park on the new land, which is being created in conjunction with Avatar director James Cameron and Lightstorm Entertainment.

The folks over at the Disney fan site MouseSteps posted a video of some Avatar-colored twinkling lights seen this weekend on the Animal Kingdom’s centerpiece, the Tree of Tree. The lights were part of the park’s new special event, Harambe Nights, which celebrates the story of Disney’s The Lion King. Check out the video here below.
