Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel

  • We're excited to see Anna and Elsa when we come to WDW Apr5-12. I've heard the lines are crazy long. On days with morning EMH at Epcot, do Anna and Elsa start greeting people at 8, or not until 9? Any other recommendations to minimize the wait to see them?

  • Hi Mary Jo,

    Anna and Elsa, the royal sisters from Frozen, have been incredibly popular since they arrived in the Norway pavilion at Epcot late last year. You are correct that the lines have been super long most of the time.

    As far as I can tell, they don't begin greeting guests early on the Extra Magic Hour mornings at Epcot. I believe their start time is still 9 a.m. However, if seeing them is at the top of your must-do list, I suggest that you arrive at Epcot before the 8 a.m. Extra Magic Hour opening time and head to Norway right away to join the queue to meet them. The line will never be shorter than it is first thing in the morning.

    That's my best suggestion. When the sisters move to Magic Kingdom later in April, FastPass+ will be an option for minimizing the wait. But for now, getting a place in line as early as possible is the best course of action.

    Good luck, and enjoy your time at Walt Disney World with your family!
