Disneyland announces new “Frozen” entertainment to include sing-along, dance party, snow play area

in Disney, Disney's California Adventure, Disneyland Resort, Entertainment, Events, Theme Parks

Today Disneyland has announced new “Frozen” themed entertainment is coming to the Disney California Adventure theme park, beginning in the very near future.

On Saturday, Dec. 20, a “sneak peek” of some of the new entertainment will begin, followed by the official launch on January 7, 2015.

Borrowing from the popular and ongoing “Frozen Fun” events at Walt Disney World, the California park will receive a sing-along stage show, snow play area, along with some all-new additions.

As the Mad T Party recently ended, “Frozen” is moving into Hollywood Land in a big way.

“For The First Time In Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration” is replacing the now-closed MuppetVision 3D as a similar stage show that’s been delighting “Frozen” fans in Florida since July:

Included will be Anna, Elsa, and Kristoff along with the Arendelle Historians as they retell the “Frozen” story through song, comedy, and performance.

The MuppetVision theater will be renamed the Crown Jewel Theatre for the new show. It’s not clear whether MuppetVision 3D will return after the show concludes its run.

Mad T Party’s direct replacement will be called “Freeze the Night! A Family Dance Party,” a “Frozen” inspired dance party filling the area. This will include music, games, photo opportunities, drinks and snacks, an ice sculptor, and interactive moments.

Nearby, Olaf’s Snow Fest will be similar to Frozen Funland, featuring a play area filled with snow along with musical performances by The Frolicking Fjords and The Tubadors, a traveling musical duo. The Tubadors will celebrate the tales of Arendelle in storytelling and song while The Frolicking Fjords will present arrangements of Arendelle-themed tunes.

Guests will also have an opportunity to meet Olaf inside – a meet-and-greet not offered in Florida right now.

Wandering Oaken’s Trading Post will be there as well, just like in Florida, selling plenty of “Frozen” merchandise and treats:

The popular sisters Anna and Elsa will be meeting and greeting inside Disney California Adventure as well, with “Anna and Elsa’s Royal Welcome” inside the Disney Animation attraction. The Anna and Elsa meeting location in Disneyland Park will close at the end of the day on Dec. 19. Return time tickets will be available for the new location.

Also inside the Animation building, “Frozen” is being added to Animation Academy where guests will be asked “Do You Want to Draw a Snowman?” – offering an Olaf drawing experience with an added Marshmallow-drawing class.

Finally, at Disneyland, “Frozen” will be added to the Storybook Land Canal Boats attraction in Fantasyland and a new “Frozen” show will be added to Fantasy Faire.

Like at Walt Disney World, many of these new “Frozen” attractions are not meant to be permanent additions to the parks (except the Storybook Land additions). But they will appease guests looking for more from the hit Disney film while Disneyland’s 60th anniversary approaches next summer.

  1. So glad that their not getting rid of Anna and Elsa we can still meet them and I’d wish that Olaf would have a meet and greet at Florida.

    “Like at Walt Disney World, many of these new “Frozen” attractions are meant to be permanent additions to the parks (except the Storybook Land additions).”

    Isn’t that backwards.

      Yes, I left out a “not,” as in “not meant to be permanent.” Fixed. Thanks.

    I love Frozen so much! But the Mad T-Party was a fun thing to get to go see as a fan of Alice in Wonderland. Plus they served alcohol, something I’m sure they won’t be doing now if it’s Frozen themed.

      If you read previous post about Frozen theme, they will have themed alcohol drinks.

    I would like to have a date with Christoph. He is handsome!

    This was needed on the West Coast… There are so many refurbishments scheduled this winter and Spring before the celebrations of the 60th – they needed some capacity… This will help.

      The Mad T Party at DCA was fantastic and unique and well worth a trip across country to see…Frozen is nice but the overkill is getting to be too much. There is other worthwhile entertainment out there for Disney to showcase. REALLY dissapointed that Mad T is gone.

  6. Rebecca

    Booo! So sick of Frozen everywhere I look! Bring back Mad T!

      Agree. Why call it winter dreams, should had called it frozen dreams. Like its disneyland, fun for young and young AT heart, it’s going to be a kids only event. MAD T was something for the older crowd that was fun and still exclusive to disney.

    To meet elsa and Anna is only fastpass or there’s going to be a stand by line for ppl that don’t have returned time cause to be honest iam a annual pass holder and my daughter’s never get to meet them because they run out the pases fast and it not fair for the other ppl that didn’t get a hold of the pass

    I’m excited for this. Muppet Vision was boring and lame, IMO. Attendance in the theatre (at DCA) was always light when I went. I’d love to know how it’s doing at Hollywood Studios. The parks need to keep up with the times as Disney is still creating new memories with new hits, like Frozen. I like what I saw from the YouTube preview of the sing-a-long. The Mad T Party was awesome, and it was always packed and had lots of energy. The last night I was there the crowd was actually cheering so loudly you could hear it from outside the area. That being said, I am still 100% open to seeing the new area, and I love that guests can meet Olaf. Yesterday at DL this kid was trying to get mechanical-Olaf’s attention and it was endearing and a little sad, lol.

    Went to frozen “tea party” and it reminded me of Tron Land only with little kids dancing under snowflake lights instead of latex dancers on pillars. It had a nightclub feel with glow drinks abound but also family elements like dance routines from the ice cutters (?) Very well choreographed for small stage. Awesome DJ. Ice sculpture carving was like watching grass grow…I miss Tron but this will do. Fet a fast pass for sing a long!

  11. BTW, this only works for native Tumblr uploads.
