Disney Trip Part 8: The Movie Frozen Highlighted in Epcot

Jeff's eating again! This time it's an Italian Scone in Italy. :)
This is the next  to last blog about our wacky adventures in Disney over 2 days at the beginning of the month. Since the movie Frozen is one of Disney's biggest movies (and we loved it, too), we thought you should know that there's a new exhibit in the Norway pavilion.

ABOUT THE NORWAY SHOWCASE - 
Norway is part of the World Showcase within Epcot at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. The  Norway pavilion resembles a Norwegian village. It includes a Stave church, shops and  the  Restaurant Akershus, resembles its namesake in Oslo.

ARCHITECTURE -  The exhibit showcases 4 styles of Norwegian architecture: Setesdal-style, Bergen-style, Oslo-style and Ålesund-style. Much of the pavilion is taken up by interconnected shops. These shops are decorated with large wooden trolls and sell assorted Norwegian goods, including clothing, candy, and statuettes of Norse gods and trolls.

It's a troll world after all
FROZEN THE MOVIE- OFFICIAL WEBSITE!  - If you're a fan of Frozen, you should know that the film has its own website: http://frozen.disney.com/

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
