Guide to Seeing Anna and Elsa at Disney WorldEver since the movie "Frozen" debuted, many Disney World travelers (us frogs included!) get toadally excited to meet Anna and Elsa at EPCOT. And then after "Frozen 2" came out, Anna and Elsa got an exciting makeover and new clothes, making them just as popular as ever.

As of April 18, 2022, traditional meet-and-greets are gradually returning to Disney World, and the Arendelle royalty have already returned to normal greetings! For the first time in forever, it was so wonderful to share nice warm hugs with Anna and Elsa in EPCOT. You can also see the sisters in various shows and parades at Magic Kingdom and Disney's Hollywood Studios.

While we have a royal guide to meeting all the princesses at Disney World, the continued popularity of the Frozen franchise means they get their own guide. Let's head into the unknown and learn all about how to meet Anna and Elsa at Disney World!

The Best Ways to See Anna and Elsa at Disney World

There's a variety of ways to get your "Frozen" fix at Walt Disney World through meet-and-greets, rides, shows and parades (oh my!). Here's all the ways to see Anna and Elsa by park.

The Best Ways to See Anna and Elsa at EPCOT

Guide to Meeting Anna and Elsa at Disney World - Meeting at the Royal Sommerhus

At EPCOT, Anna and Elsa have their own meet-and-greet location at the Royal Sommerhus in the Norway pavilion. You wait in one line and then meet both of them separately. This is the only location thus far on property where they wear their "Frozen 2' outfits.

Keep the Frozen adventures going at EPCOT and head next door to Frozen Ever After! The slow moving boat ride brings the characters and songs of "Frozen" to life through technologically advanced animatronics. Plus there's a ride photo to remember the adventure! Wait times can increase very quickly for this popular attraction, so we recommend riding first thing in the morning or at the end of the night for lower waits (download our app and you can see wait times for all attractions). If a priority for your family, we also suggest booking a Lightning Lane selection via Disney Genie.

The Best Ways to See Anna and Elsa at Magic Kingdom

Magic Kingdom Entertainment - Mickey's Magical Friendship Faire

At Magic Kingdom, catch the "Frozen" sisters at the castle show and parade. Mickey's Magical Friendship Faire stage show features a variety of characters including Anna, Elsa and Olaf. The show is performed in front of the castle at various times throughout the day. The sisters are also on the first float of the Festival of Fantasy parade. Magic Kingdom is the best place to see the most amount of princesses, so we're glad there's some chances for some cool waves and greetings.

The Best Ways to See Anna and Elsa at Disney's Hollywood Studios

Frozen Sing Along – Elsa and Anna

Over at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you can see both sisters and Kristoff in “For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration” at the Hyperion Theater. Get ready to "Let It Go" with this show for the whole family. Now this isn't just any Frozen sing-along. This fun and comical retelling of the events of Frozen will have all frogs laughing and singing along. During the holiday season, Olaf may even make a special appearance for a festive finale!

The show is typically performed every hour, so there are plenty of opportunities for your Frozen-obsessed frogs to catch a show. Shows do fill up quickly, so we suggest arriving at least 20 to 30 minutes ahead of showtime to secure your spot. We also recommend trying for the earlier shows just in case they hit capacity and you need to wait until the next show.

While there are no meet-and-greets with the sisters at Hollywood Studios, enjoy the show and then head next door to meet with Olaf!

Those are some of the best ways to meet Elsa and Anna at Disney World. Have a tip we didn't mention? Share it in comments below.

We got to meet the princesses last month, we went on a thursday, got to Epcot around 9:30 am and went straight to Norway and the queue line was for 4 to 5 hours. There we looked at our options (since it was our first time there) and decided to go and look at all the attractions we could, we went to test track, spaceship earth, got around the world showcase, met the other princesses like Aurora and Belle (There was little to no line) and by the time we ate and looked around more, at around 3:30 pm we got in line to meet Anna and Elsa and the line was half the lenght it was in the morning. We used turns to look individually some villages nearby, and by the time we got in there it was around 5:00 pm almost less than two hours in line, and we used that to rest, I don't know if we got lucky, but I would recommend to first see all you could do in Epcot and get to the last schedule to secure a place (the last hour is 4:20 pm) that way you can use the time to rest, and will be less people in line than in the morning.

You mentioned making a breakfast ADR at Akershus and then having one person go and wait in the line for Anna and Elsa. For that person waiting in line, do you make an ADR that they don't use since they are standing in line? Does one person wait in line for the first 30 minutes (say 8 - 8:30), then switch off for part of the breakfast with another member of your party that ate a quick breakfast? Or, should one person plan on eating very quickly and then getting in the line?

Has this strategy become widespread? Cinderella's Royal Table has traditionally been the most difficult ADR to get, but perhaps breakfast at Akershus has taken that top spot over for the time being. Do you know what the breakfast costs are for a child and adult?

I'm hoping that the lines will have decreased some by the time we visit after Thanksgiving, but I may make a breakfast ADR just in case so we can minimize the wait to see Anna and Elsa.

We met Elsa and Anna a few days aho. According to the calendar published by Disney, this was supposed to be one of the least crowded weeks to visit Disney. Even though it was less crowded the line for Anna and Elsa never dropped below 1-2 hours. There were no fast passes available, and all of the breakfasted were booked months in advance. I refused to stand in line longer than an hour with a toddler. However; I watched the line and checked the wait times. Toward the end of the day, around 9pm, I checked the line one last time. Those working said that the wait time was 75 minutes. I decided to give it a shot with the option to bail if It took too long. We were in the room with Anna and Elsa in 20 MINUTES! Not 75! So if breakfasts and fast passes are not available, jump in line during the fireworks!

Sadly, the only best time to meet Anna and Elsa is during the amazing fireworks? I was there during this Christmas and I really wanted to see them! But when I got in line, i thought the wait time said 50 minutes. Nope! 500! Every 10 minutes, you walk 2 steps! We had to get out of line because we had a fastpass waiting. Even though Pirates of the Caribeann was worth the fastpass, i still wish i could one day see them!

Michelle, thanks for the information. My oldest son will be 10 at that time, so I would need reservations for 3 adults and 2 children. $240 for breakfast just to rush through it in order to see Anna and Elsa with a shorter wait is more pricey than I think I want to spend. Hopefully the lines will be shorter by December.

Vern- I priced it b/c there was a breakfast ADR available one of our days. For 2 adults and 1 child it would have cost us $150...and you have to pre-pay. $60/adult and $30/child
