Frozen Ever After Water Ride

Orlando Sentinel has a coverage of the upcoming new attraction at Epcot's Norway Pavilion based on "Frozen".

Visitors walk through what Disney Imagineers refer to as “scene one” while waiting in line for Frozen Ever After. In the queue, visitors will wander past Wandering Oaken’s Trading Post, where the thick-accented trader wipes steam off the windows and yells his trademark “Yoo-hoo!”

Once aboard the Viking logs, riders will spot Sven the reindeer helping set up for the Winter in Summer festival, float past an ice-skating Olaf the snowman, encounter the giant evil snowman Marshmallow and meander through Troll Valley, where Grandpappy Troll tells the story of how Princess Anna and trader Kristof met.

The highlight of the voyage is a visit to Elsa’s palace, where the Ice Queen makes it snow -- with the help of special effects and screen projections -- as she sings “Let It Go.” After parting a mist cloud, the ride concludes with a fireworks finale and a send-off from the main characters.

Other than the visual aspect of it, this is pretty much what I was expecting for this attraction. In a sense, I'm a bit disappointed that I'm not being surprised by something unexpected, but it is aiming to attract the younger crowd anyway.
