Frozen Star Wars

I love a good mashup, and this group really blew my mind! Great concept, and super well carried out!

Disney Cruise to Canada?

Disney announced the other day that their Transatlantic cruise from Port Canaveral, Florida to Dover, England will include a stop in Sydney, Nova Scotia. I’m rather excited about this, for obvious reasons. (Yay Canada!) You can check out the full itinerary here.

On top of that, the price is ridiculously low for a Disney cruise. Fourteen nights, and…well, you’ll just have to look at the price list here. Yes, that’s in USD, unfortunately. However, yes, that is for two people. No, it doesn’t include airfare.

Yes, it leaves on Ottawa Comic Con weekend, because it is the Disney Magic, heading over to Norway for its Frozen-themed cruises in May, June, and July. It’s also going to do a nice little tour around the British Isles. There are also itineraries in the Mediterranean, departing from Barcelona, Spain.

Want to go on a Disney cruise? I sure do, now that I’ve done my research for this post! You can contact Jennifer Desmarais through Orleans Travel. jennifer.desmarais@orleanstravel.ca

Norway

Norway is a beautiful country full of geeky opportunities. Tons of movies were filmed there, including “Empire Strikes Back” (in Finse), “Die Another Day”, “Eight Below”, “G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra”, and “Captain America: The First Avenger” (in Svalbard), parts of “Harry Potter & the Half-Blood Prince” (in Rauma), “Ex Machina” (in Norddal and Luster), and “Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows” (in Mardalsfossen). Of course, “Vikings” was shot in many locations in Norway, including Sokndal, Bjerkreim, Gjesdal, Forsand, Aurland, and Stranda.

Note: Svalbard is an island much further North of the continent, and would probably be a trip all on it’s own.

And that’s not even counting Oslo, Norway’s capital. One of the best comic book stores exists there: Outland. They have everything you could possibly want, including Lego, board games, comic books (obviously), and collectibles.

Akershus Fortress is also located in Oslo. It was used as the model for Arendelle’s castle in Frozen, and Norway’s building in Epcot is a replica of the Fortress.

For History buffs, Norway is an amazing place to visit. They have museums, carvings, and historical centres all over the place. I read through this website, a mom and her six year old son’s trip to Norway was beautifully written.

She also writes about eight haunted places in Norway that you must visit. They have a Ghost Walk similar to the Haunted Walk in Ottawa!

Let’s not forget that Disney’s Cruise Line Magic has a “Frozen” themed cruise to Norway as well. See Norway with that Disney magic thrown in!
