A new “Frozen Fun” experience has been making visits to Disney California Adventure Park extra special for guests since the attraction opened in January.
There are plenty of magical adventures with characters from the Walt Disney Pictures blockbuster film. Guests can meet Anna and Elsa in a new location, sing along with the “Frozen” soundtrack, play in the snow, meet Olaf the snowman, and “chill out” at a nighttime, family dance party.
Anna and Elsa relocated Dec. 20 from their Fantasyland greeting area in Disneyland to a roomier new home, “Anna & Elsa’s Royal Welcome,” inside the Disney Animation building in Disney California Adventure Park.
Additional new “Frozen” experiences in the Hollywood Land area of the park include “For the First Time in Forever” – A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration in the newly dubbed Crown Jewel Theatre; the immersive “Olaf’s Snow Fest” featuring snow play, music, food and Olaf himself, and an after-dark offering “Freeze the Night! A Family Dance Party.”
A look at each of the experiences:
“Anna & Elsa’s Royal Welcome”
This experience provides an elegant new location for Anna and Elsa to meet and take photos with visitors in the Disney Animation building in Hollywood Land.
The colorful and varied animation experience already on display in the attraction’s lobby will feature new scenes that pay tribute to Arendelle and the world of “Frozen.”
As they did in the previous location in Fantasyland, guests will utilize the Return Time Ticket to meet the characters, avoiding long wait times by securing a reservation time to return to the Royal Welcome.
Elsewhere in the Disney Animation building, guests at the Animation Academy will be asked “Do You Want to Draw a Snowman?” – offering an Olaf drawing experience with an added Marshmallow-drawing class.
For the First Time in Forever – A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration
The Muppet Vision 3D Theatre has recently been transformed into the welcoming Crown Jewel Theatre of Arendelle, where Anna, Elsa and Kristoff take part in a comedic retelling of their story that features popular songs from the film.
Two Arendellian Historians, acting as hosts, lead the festivities, with the “Frozen” characters making memorable appearances throughout.
Some of the favorite musical sequences (and lyrics) are shown on large screens to make sure everybody enjoys all the fun.
Olaf’s Snow Fest
Who doesn’t love Olaf? This loveable snowman can been found at the Crown Jewel Theatre in Stage 17, which is transformed into a charming castle courtyard reminiscent of Arendelle.
Music and lighting bring to life an immersive wintry environment for guests to meet and share a warm hug with Olaf.
Kids of all ages will have fun in a giant play area with real snow where they are encouraged to build snow creations and zip down a snow slide. Guests who wish to observe the icy fun will have a nearby viewing area.
A traveling musical duo, The Tubadors, will celebrate the tales of Arendelle in storytelling and song while, on their own stage, The Frolicking Fjords will present arrangements of Arendelle-themed tunes. Guests may enjoy a cup of hot chocolate and decorate their own Olaf cookie, making memories that will warm their hearts.
Freeze the Night! A Family Dance Party
After a day of rides and adventures, guests are invited to “chill out” in a family friendly setting inspired by the icy environment of “Frozen.”
Created for all ages, this interactive party celebrates “all things Frozen” with exciting music, games, photo opportunities, drinks and snacks, an ice sculptor, and plenty of interactive moments, all infused with a super-cool crackle of exhilarating energy.
