July 5, 1988 – The Film Norway – The Film Opens in Epcot’s Norway Pavilion
“Norway…it was born in challenge, in a thousand years of challenging the seas.”
On July 5, 1988, the seventy millimeter film Norway – The Film opened in the Norway Pavilion of Epcot’s World Showcase. Also known as The Spirit of Norway, the film was shown at the end of the Maelstrom attraction, where guests could sit and learn a bit more about the people and culture of Norway. The film closed alongside Maelstrom on October 5, 2014, to make way for a new attraction featuring the characters from the film Frozen.
