Disney's California Adventure to add Frozen

Disney’s California Adventure is getting “Frozen” over.

The Anaheim theme park will add “Frozen Fun” in January, providing themed experiences tied to the blockbuster toon.

Starting Jan. 7, those will include a conversion of The Muppet Vision 3D theater in Hollywood Land into Arendelle’s Crown Jewel Theater to host “For the First Time in Forever — A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration.” Show will feature the film’s characters as they help the Arendelle historians retell the history of their kingdom.

“Olaf’s Snow Fest” will take over Stage 17, also in Hollywood Land, and offer a snow play area and musical performances by The Frolicking Fjords and The Tubadors, along with photo opportunities and food options.

Wandering Oaken’s Trading Post will sell “Frozen”-inspired apparel, plush, toys, mugs and other merchandise.

“Anna and Elsa’s Royal Welcome” will provide character meet and greets with the sisters inside the Disney Animation attraction, where guests can also learn to draw Olaf or Marshmallow from Disney animators.

“Freeze the Night!” will turn a portion of Hollywood Land into a nightly dance party for families, complete with wintry decor.

Meanwhile at Disneyland, a new “Frozen” show will debut inside the Fantasy Faire, with a retelling of the film’s story. Anna and Elsa will also make pre-parade appearances on a float during Mickey’s Soundsational Parade.

And miniature locales of “Frozen” will be added to scenes of some of Disney’s fairy tales, including “Pinocchio,” “Cinderella,” “Aladdin,” and “The Little Mermaid” when Storybook Land Canal Boats re-open later this month.

The Downtown Disney retail area will also have an ice rink themed around Olaf, the snowman, that will be open through Feb. 22, while a new Anna and Elsa’s Boutique will also open.

Disney will provide early looks at the new “Frozen” additions on Dec. 20.

The new “Frozen” experiences are being added to Disney’s theme parks as the company is readying to release “Frozen Fever,” the first animated short based on the film in front of “Cinderella,” in March.

Disney already had announced plans to add a “Frozen” ride to Epcot in Walt Disney World, in Orlando.
