How long as you willing to wait to experience more Frozen madness? Well, if you're at Disney World today, you'd better be willing to wait for a long, long, looong time.

Not only are we getting a new Frozen story in the form of a book and a TV show next month, but Frozen: Ever After, the new ride featuring characters from the 2013 global phenomenon, opened up at Disney World on Tuesday. Located at Epcot in the Norwegian pavilion, the attraction takes visitors on a boat tour through the Arendelle kingdom, where Queen Elsa is using her magic powers to create a "winter in summer" day for her people. You'll also get to check out Troll Valley and Elsa's Ice Palace before meeting to royal sisters themselves in their new countryside cabin.

Frozen: Ever After, Disney World


Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Josh Gadand the rest of the cast recorded new dialogue and musical numbers just for the ride. Unfortunately, the song "Let It Go" isn't included in the adventure.

Ah, we're just kidding! That's an insane lie we just told. Of course "Let It Go" is heard during the ride! Is it a true Frozen experience without that song? Nope.

So, that all sounds cool, right? Of course! Hope you don't mind waiting 300 minutes. That's right. 300 minutes. As in five hours.

That's an insane amount of time to stand in line, and yet we're not the least bit surprised that Disney World visitors are currently doing just that. Parents who are on hour three of your wait time just so your kids can ride through Arendelle, we salute you.

And because it's a soft opening, the ride does have some issues. According to social media, Frozen: Ever After has been breaking done periodically, which might be why the wait time is astronomically high. But at least park employees are handing out ice cream bars to the masses.

To anyone thinking about checking out the new ride over the next few months, good luck! And by the time you get out of line, maybe Frozen 2 will already be out in theaters.
