    RIP ... another iconic Disney experience bites the dust. Always enjoyed the Norway pavilion. Not too sure on the Frozen transformation.

    Rumor is that they may change this ride soon to be Frozen themed, so ride it while it's still here! Nice relaxing ride.

    Don't believe the wait time sign. Even if the line is to the door it'll only be about twenty minutes.
