Disney gives a sneak peek of its new Frozen ride
Love it or loathe it, Frozen fever continues to live on. This time it's in the form of a new ride that is due to open next year at Disney's Epcot park in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.
Following its announcement last year that construction had begun on a Frozen attraction, Disney has now offered a first look of what to expect from the new ride, which, we have to admit, does sound pretty impressive.
First Look: We're excited to share what's coming when the “Frozen” attraction in Epcot opens in 2016. http://t.co/0BE9IeEf5I

'Frozen Ever After' will take guests through the kingdom of Arendelle by combining Disney storytelling with new technology, and featuring favourite moments and music from the film.
This doesn't mean that guests will have to sit through the entire plot again, though. "What we try to do is take you back to the movie without retelling that story," Kathy Mangum, who oversees Walt Disney World, told The Wall Street Journal. "This is a celebration of the characters, a way for guests who love the film to experience it in a completely different way."
According to Disney Parks Blog, "Guests will be transported to the Winter in Summer Celebration where Queen Elsa embraces her magical powers and creates a winter-in-summer day for the entire kingdom. They will also visit Elsa’s Ice Palace and the ice-blue world of the North Mountain along with other locations before returning to the Bay of Arendelle."
Looks like Queen Elsa's popularity is showing no signs of strain.
