Anna, Elsa and their friends have arrived at the Walt Disney World Resort just in time for the holidays with two special experiences for guests visiting the parks this winter. The royal sisters have journeyed from Arendelle to the Magic Kingdom to present "A Frozen Holiday Wish." Anna, Kristoff, and everyone’s favorite snowman, Olaf, join Queen Elsa as she uses her wintery magic to decorate Cinderella’s Castle with shimmering snow and ice.
Frozen fans will love the interlude with quirky Anna and lovable Kristoff as they convince the majestic Queen Elsa to use her icy powers to add some sparkle to the holiday decorations. This is also a rare opportunity to see warm-hug loving Olaf getting into his silly antics live and in person.
For the best views of the royal sisters and their entourage, arrive early for a spot near the castle stage. Those arriving closer to show time risk their view being blocked by smartphones and children on their parents’ shoulders. To take in stunning views of the glittering castle, settle in on Main Street or stop along the side of the bridge between the hub and Liberty Square or the bridge to Tomorrowland for less crowded viewing. Queen Elsa presents her gift twice nightly at 6:15 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. (weather permitting) through Dec. 31. In the event of inclement weather (ie. rain), Queen Elsa sends a member of her royal court to present her gift and may not appear in person.
Frozen Holiday Premium Package
There is another Disney World "Frozen" holiday event over at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Guests can celebrate the holiday season with the Frozen Holiday Premium Package, available select dates through Jan. 4, 2015 (package not available Nov. 20 and Dec. 10). The package includes reserved seating for one showing of "For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration," entrance to a Frozen dessert party in a reserved location for viewing of the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights, and a holiday lithograph and Frozen themed pin.
The Frozen holiday package is $89 for adults and $59 for children ages 3-9. For Frozen fanatics, the Frozen Dessert Package eases the stress of trying to snag a seat in the sing-along show, and includes a souvenir lithograph and pin. However, Frozen-themed cupcakes and other dessert items can be found at Wandering Oaken’s Trading Post near the Premiere Theater, and the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights can be viewed at no extra charge throughout the Streets of America.
