This may be good news for some of you, but many have voiced concern over bringing the Disney Characters to Epcot. Maelstrom has been the ride in Norway and for those who enjoy keeping things in their “classic” form, this is an unwanted change. For many who see “Frozen” as the only movie recently released from Disney, this is an exciting addition. No matter which side you fall on I recommend that if you are in Disney between now and October 5, 2014, ride Maelstrom before it closes forever. I just changed my FastPass+ selection to include riding Maelstrom before it closes. I’m looking forward to enjoying it and then excited to see the changes that await the Norway Pavilion. Of course we are going to have to wait until 2016 for the new “Frozen” attraction to be open.
