Named "Frozen Ever After," the new dark ride will still open in 2016 - no more specific date has been announced yet.  The attraction will be part of a renovated Norway Pavilion that will see new distinct architectural features added to the appearance of the area's structures.  Inside the "Royal Sommerhus" visitors will be treated to a host of Norwegian art and culture, and this is also where they can meet Anna and Elsa.

As for the ride itself, the journey will be trip though the kingdom of Arendelle where the Winter in Summer Celebration is taking place.  The first concept art for the ride can be seen above, which almost looks like the reverse-direction spot from the old ride.

Aside from the winter in summer celebration, riders will also visit Elsa's Ice Palace and the North Mountain among other spots made famous in the film.  Disney promises that their brand of storytelling and new technology will bring the Frozen characters - including the Snowgies from "Frozen Fever" - to life like never before.
