Yesterday's foray to a VERY QUIET Epcot gave my team an opportunity to jump on the new 'Frozen Ever After' attraction in World Showcase. The ride had just re-opened after a technical glitch so our wait time was only 20-30 minutes.
While I enjoyed the film I was certainly not its target demographic. Nonetheless, as a hard core theme park "foamer", I wanted to see what team WDI put together.
I was not disappointed.
The animated figures (especially Olaf) are incredible. The character face projections are pretty much spot on. The Anna character was not working (which I suspect was the reason for the shut down) but the variance in Elsa's movement was extraordinary.
Walking away from the attraction the exceptional animated figures made me think how the attraction represented a harbinger for the boat ride planned for Disney's Animal Kingdom's 'Pandora: The World of Avatar.' After all 'Frozen Ever After' has won a fair share of praise. Not bad for an overlay using an existing ride system. But if the animated figures on this attraction are any indication, it would seem that another attraction, using a brand new ride system and the blessing of a much larger budget could make for a groundbreaking experience on Pandora.Tweet
