Norway Pavilion

From castles, to trolls, to baked goods, shops, and one of the most highly anticipated new rides in Disney World (or so it seems), Norway has a little something to offer everyone. Wander this charming pavilion and discover the magic of Norway.

Be sure to visit the Stave Church, a faithful recreation of Gol stavkirke, bulit in 1212 A.D. in Hallingdal, Norway. The original stave church was saved from demolition and can now be found at the Norwegian Museum of Cultural History in Oslo, Norway. The Stave Church here functions as a cozy museum, with exhibits that are changed out periodically. Currently, guests can view items that served to inspire the artists who created the movie, Frozen. On display are items of clothing, artifacts, and folk art.

Frozen Ever After FastPass+ Enabled Attraction
This all new attraction, which replaced Maelstrom, features Anna, Elsa, Olaf, Sven, Kristoff ( and perhaps a troll or two). This new journey through Arendelle immerses guests in many of their favorite musical moments from the film. Guests are welcomed by Olaf, who is SO excited to show you the way to Elsa's ice palace. But, don't stay too long! Elsa uses her ice magic to push your boat back, back (but not over the falls this time!) The boat narrowly escapes an icy blast of wind from the snow monster before heading down the slopes of the mountain and back to safety. All new animatronics and special effects make this an enjyoable ride, particularly for fans of the film.

FastPass+ Enabled Attraction

Royal Summerhaus

Royal Summerhus-Norway

Guests can meet Anna and Elsa at this new meet & greet location in the Norway Pavilion, themed to a rustic Norwegian "summer house". Please note: at this time, Fastpass+ is NOT available for this experience.



Food options here include the Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe, an authentic Norwegian bakery serving up sandwiches, salads, and baked goods. Meet your favorite Disney Princesses at Akershus, a Disney Character Dining Experience, located inside a castle in this pavilion. Click for menus below!

Maelstrom (closed October 5, 2014)

This 5 minute boat ride packs a solid punch, traveling thru a Viking village, mythical forest (home to the trolls), a backwards waterfall and toss and turn in the raging North Sea narrowly avoiding a monstrous Oil Rig.  It all goes by so quick and leaves you wanting MORE!  After your boat docks, stick around to watch a beautifully shot view of today's Norway.
