My family and I love to try new experiences during our trips to Disney. We try to incorporate new dining experiences and, especially, new attractions into our itinerary. This gives me a chance to provide feedback to Disney as well as to my wonderful and treasured clients. During our recent visit, we booked fast passes for the latest Frozen attraction, For the First Time In Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration. Like every other 3-year-old, Aleyah absolutely loves Frozen so I booked this mainly for her, but it turned out to be quite a surprise for all of us.
This new Hollywood Studios attraction, held at the Premiere Theater on the Streets of New York, was an extremely well-done interactive show. Anna comes out first to greet the crowd and to introduce the guests to the “Royal Historians of Arendelle.” This pair presents the story of Frozen in a very comical way and makes it a lot of fun. Each sing along song has the words projected across the screen. Towards the end, Elsa joins Anna and Kristoff onstage and more music ensues. The interactive songs performed during the show are:
Do You Want To Build A Snowman?
For the First Time in Forever
Love Is An Open Door
Let it Go
Let it Go reprise with Elsa included
Another fun surprise of this show (spoiler alert) is that IT SNOWS in the theater. The kids were so excited. The special effects were great and the atmosphere was too.
The kids love it — I did too. We all loved it! It is not just for kids, in fact, a couple fo the jokes are geared more toward adults and will go right over the kids’ heads. To young children, this is real-life. They are actually singing with Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and seeing a little of Olaf. Their faces reflect this reality and, to me, that is priceless.
I hope this attraction will stay around for a long time. It is rumored that April 30 will be the end of it. I have already sent my letter to Disney encouraging them to keep it. I don’t know how much weight it will have, but it is worth a try.
I sure hope you will get to experience this fun, interactive show during your next visit. I really would hate for Disney to let it go.
Thanks for joining me. Happy travels to all!
