→ ‘Frozen Ever After:’ An Exclusive Look at Disney’s Upcoming Attraction – Speakeasy – WSJ

Some really interesting bits in this Wall Street Journal article:

Maelstrom, on which visitors ride a floating log on a tour through Norwegian mythology, has been “gutted,” Ms. Mangum said, and is currently getting “a whole new overlay with ‘Frozen.’” While the logs and the path will remain the same, everything you see along the way is being replaced.

The audio-animatronic characters will be cutting edge, Ms. Mangum said, using a new technology that includes projectors behind the faces to enable more lifelike animation. It was first used on the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train ride that opened in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom last year.

There is no doubt that the ride is going to be a huge hit, but I think it’s going to be a really good experience, too.
