Fans of Anna and Elsa have had to endure waits of up to five hours to meet the ladies of Arendelle in their current location in the Norway pavilion in Epcot. So Disney's moving them to the Princess Fairytale Hall at the Magic Kingdom, where guests will be able to reserve meeting times with the two, using the resort's new Fastpass+ system.
That should alleviate the brutal wait-time problem with the two characters, though it will make an early reservation to get a Fastpass+ time a must for any families hoping to meet Anna and Elsa during their Walt Disney World visit. Disney's hotel guests can make Fastpass+ reservations up to 60 days in advance of the start of their visit, though it appears that Anna and Elsa meet times haven't shown up yet in the system. We'll have to wait and see if Disney sets aside visit opportunities for "day guests" on a standby basis, and what those standby wait times turn out to be.
Fastpass+ still not available
Oh wow, 5 hours! My family and I are planning on a July Disney vacation. Because there are about 12 of us traveling, it's more cost effective to rent a vacation home off-site, which is what we have done.
Too bad, that was the busiest the Norway pavilion has been since it opened in 1988.
One night reservation will get you one day of fast pass plus access only.
These parents are true heroes waiting in a five hour line!
We are going to Disney World in May and just booked the Anna and Elsa fastpass.
So... how many times can a parent drink around the world while his/her kids wait for Anna and Elsa?
I think you could probably make it around once pretty quick, but by the time you went around the second or third time you might forget you even had kids anymore lol.
So, does this eliminate the idea of a Frozen ride in Norway? Or are they getting moved to accomodate future construction? #speculationtime
Why don't they just hire two more people to play the characters at Magic Kingdom? It's not like the two actors that are playing them now are the actual people from the movie.
I am going in May too and today I was able to book Anna and Elsa at the fairytale hall. It was not there a few days ago
We are in Disney now and travelled from newfoundland with our 5 and one year old. First stop, before magic kingdom was Norway at Epcot to see Anna and Elsa....we hd no idea about the five hour wait.not possible with our one year old and not willing for ne of us to miss ur lunch with princesses.Our five year olds heart is broken. We will try to make it happen tomorrow by keeping the the baby home while her and
March 15th marked the 60 day window for our trip to Disney World. I logged onto My Disney Experience and Fast Pass + at 11AM on the 15th. All the times for Elsa and Anna were already "wait-listed," by that time, for of the 2 days we have scheduled to visit the Magic Kingdom. Luckily the 2nd day we plan to visit wasn't waitlisted - yet. I would suggest logging sooner than I did (11AM) when you reach the 60 day window if you are set on getting a Fast Pass for this character meet & greet. Also, be sure to Prioritize Elsa and Anna as your top choice, so that "experience" isn't subsituted.
