Walking through the Norway Pavilion genuinely feels as though you are exploring a work of art. The kingdom of Norway (with Sweden) was established in 872 – so how do you put that much history into a Pavillion? Well, its exhibit has 4 distinct styles to it that represent the distinct areas/cities of Setesdal, Bergen, Oslo, and Ålesund. Want to know more about this special pavilion? Check out our list below!

  1. Stave Church
    • Not only is this iconic church important to the look and feel of the pavilion, but it is actually a scaled-down version of the most visited Stave called the Borgund Stave Church found in Borgund, Lærdal. Within the Epcot version is a fantastic exhibit on Norse Mythology and Norwegian history!
  2. Frozen Fanbase
    • If you’re looking for the Frozen epicenter, Norway is where you’ll find it! The fantastic ride, Frozen Ever After, as well as Anna & Elsa’s Royal Sommerhus are a Frozen fan’s dream and are both found nestled within the Norway Pavilion. Fans can also stop by The Wandering Reindeer for all their Frozen shopping needs!
  3. Food, Part 1
    • Looking for a dining experience with a royal feel? Akershus Royal Banquet Hall is a prince or princess’s dream! With some very royal meet and greets, you are sure to find some of your favorite Disney Princesses roaming this banquet hall. Though the dinners are in the Disney “$$$” range, they have plenty of Norwegian dishes for those looking to explore a country via food! If you head to Akershus – grab a slice of Apple Cake! Regulars swear by it!
  4. Food, Part 2
    • For those looking for a bite to grab and go, stop by Kringla Bakeri og Kafe. Filled to the brim with delightful baked goods, stopping by this shop is essential for a pick-me-up coffee or, what most fans flock for: School Bread. Now, some may say this delicious bun is overrated, but others swear by it and make sure to add it to their must-snack list! If you’re not a fan, there are plenty of delicious options for you to choose from!
