Admit it. Deep down, you really loved the film. You never slipped through the theater and skipped “The Spirit of Norway”, did you? Of course, you didn’t. We’re true Disney fans! In fact, we’re the truest of the true!
When it comes to Maelstrom, in the spirit of “Frozen”, some of my friends and fans tell me that I should “Let It Go” already. I just can’t.
Look, we know that Maelstrom was nothing more than a four-minute mildly-thrilling, musty-smelling boat ride. The movie was a too-loud and simple Norwegian travelogue. Nonetheless, we loved it all! Especially the polar bears!
After a “death-defying(?)” drop into the “North Sea” and past an oil rig, Maelstrom delivered its Guests into a small, calm harbor village. In that village, the ride’s narrator announced, “Norway’s spirit will always be adventure.”
As a last tribute to this “fallen” experience, I am very proud to announce the opening of the All in WDW Hall of Fame! And, I’m very delighted to reveal its first honoree – Maelstrom!
Live on, Maelstrom!
