Epcot: Christmas in Norway

During Epcot’s month long “Holidays around the World” celebration, each country in the World Showcase offers a little skit about the traditions of Christmas in their country.  You mean you can learn something on vacation?  Of course you can and Norway is about more than just meeting Anna and Elsa.  😉

In Norway people that live in big cities attend concerts, festivals and other events.  For the country folk on the farms “The Barn Santa” Julenissen pays them a visit.  This mischievous gnome can only be seen by those that believe and the audience will have to help the storyteller believe in him as he plays tricks on her while she tells of Norway’s traditions.

Each of Epcot’s 11 countries will have characters, dressed in costume, perform holiday traditions for guests an average of 6 times a day.  You will need to check the printed times guide or My Disney Experience app, in order to get exact times for performances each day.

epcot_christmas_map_passport
When you pick up your park map for the day, don’t forget to grab the Holidays Around the World Passport.  There is a lot of great information in this little book.  The pages include check boxes & stickers to put in place as you complete each event at the different countries around the World Showcase.

The tale of Norway’s Holiday Traditions is as follows from the sign posted at the Norway Pavilion:
The Christmas season in a festive time in the “Land of the Midnight Sun”:however there are remarkable differences between the holiday celebrations in Norway’s cities and the age old traditions of farming communities.
In Norwegian towns and cities, there are a host of festivities leading up to Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  Many will celebrate the holidays going to concerts, fairs and markets, with caroling and church services, or the familiar custom of awaiting the arrival of Santa Claus.
On many Norwegian farms, there is also much excitement as the children anticipate the visit of “the Barn Santa,” Julenissen, a gnome who lives in the woods and barns across the countryside.  It is believed that he is the guardian of the farm animal and every family’s welfare.  Young children leave a steaming bowl of porridge in the hayloft during the holiday period to thank Julenissen.
Christmas Eve on the farm is busy with fun activity.  Farm animal are treated to the finest oats and barley.  Birds are offered a julenek, large sheaves of grain places high on spruce poles.  Gifts are opened.  After darkness, it “lights out” as homes are illuminated by on the warm glow of candlelight.
Christmas Day throughout Norway is “family time!” Everyone gathers to enjoy the precious gift of food, music and good times that may last for hours!

New Frozen experiences & attraction coming to Walt Disney World

Disney World offers even more ways to enjoy and experience the world of “Frozen,” Disney’s instant classic film, across Walt Disney World® Resort! “Frozen” has been a part of the Guest experience in a number of ways already and Guests have both loved them and asked for more. Disney announces their latest plans to bring more “Frozen”-inspired experiences to the Disney theme parks.

New Frozen experiences coming to Walt Disney World

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Construction is beginning on a brand new “Frozen” attraction at the Norway Pavilion at Epcot®. The new attraction, which replaces Maelstrom, will take you to Arendelle and immerse you in many favorite moments and music from the film. The pavilion will also include a royal greeting location with Anna and Elsa. These “Frozen” elements are great additions to the Norway Pavilion, which showcases the country and region that inspired the film.

In order for work to begin on the attraction and character greeting area, the last day Guests can enjoy the Maelstrom attraction is Oct. 5, 2014. The project is anticipated to be complete by early 2016, and the Norway pavilion will remain open through construction.

The wintry wonder and magic of “Frozen” will also enchant Magic Kingdom® Park this holiday season. Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, and Olaf join the festive holiday procession, “Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade,” along with a flurry of skaters, skiiers, and ice cutters from the Kingdom of Arendelle. This parade is offered during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, select nights Nov. 7-Dec. 19, 2014. The parade will also be presented daily Dec. 20-31, 2014.

Each evening beginning Nov. 5, 2014, Anna and Elsa will appear in a new show on the Castle Forecourt Stage at the heart of Magic Kingdom Park, as Queen Elsa uses her incredible powers to transform Cinderella Castle into a glimmering ice palace for the holidays.

And, if you haven’t experienced “Frozen Summer Fun LIVE!” at Disney’s Hollywood Studios® yet, you are in for a special treat. Due to its popularity, two elements of this special event are now set to continue.

You can enjoy “For the First Time in Forever: A ‘Frozen’ Sing-Along Celebration,” a hilarious and interactive presentation of the “Frozen” story – extended indefinitely! The show is presented up to 10 times per day in the park’s Premiere Theater on Streets of America, and Disney Fastpass+ service is now available.

Wandering Oaken’s Trading Post and Frozen Funland will be moving on Sept. 28, 2014 from Soundstage One to a new space, in Streets of America near the exit of the Studio Backlot Tour. The new Wandering Oaken’s, expected to operate through the holiday season, will feature a larger-than-ever play area with real snow, plenty of “Frozen” merchandise, character cupcakes, and other treats.
