    Will the Norwegian pavilion be open earlier than 11:00 with their being the frozen ride now? If so, will the Norwegian stores be open as well?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Traci, and greetings from your neighbor to the south! 

    Thank you so much for bringing us your excellent question. Even though Epcot's World Showcase opens each day at 11:00am, The Norway Pavilion opens daily to guests at park opening! This means you'll have access to all this beautiful Pavilion's shopping, dining, and the attraction, Frozen Ever After as soon as the park opens - even on days of Morning Extra Magic Hours. Whether you need that perfect Viking Hat from Puffin's Roost, or the perfect Frozen-inspired plush toy from the Wandering Reindeer, you won't have to wait. 

    I think having an early breakfast at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, followed by shopping and a FastPass+ reservation for Frozen Ever After sounds like the perfect start to a magical day! Another fun tip, the Norway Pavilion's iconic Stave Church Galley actual serves as an exhibit to the country that inspired Frozen, don't forget to take a peek. Most guests don't realize you can go inside this centerpiece of the Pavilion. 

    I hope this is helpful in planning a special day at Epcot, Traci! Please let me know if you should have any additional questions. I am here to help you plan!
