Spectacular “Frozen” Fun on the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder This Summer

Who’s ready to bring back summer?! Summer is an extra special time of year as the Disney Magic sails throughout Europe and the Disney Wonder journeys to Alaska. And just like last year, we’re celebrating the return of summer with friends from the Kingdom of Arendelle!

“Freezing the Night Away with Anna, Elsa and Friends” Deck Party

On select Disney Magic and Disney Wonder sailings, you’ll be transported to the land of “Frozen” when the ship is transformed into a winter wonderland. On one special morning, you’ll awake to discover a magical freeze has overtaken the atrium lobby with sparkling icicles adorning the grand staircase, resembling the majestic mountain-top ice palace of Queen Elsa. Throughout the day there will be Scandinavian-inspired family activities, a themed dining experience with a menu of traditional Nordic fare and meet and greets with Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf.

This “cool” day of frozen fun culminates with an extravagant celebration, “Freezing the Night Away with Anna, Elsa and Friends.” This family-friendly interactive deck party features the famous royal sisters of Arendelle and their fun-loving Nordic companions. By now, the freeze has spread to the upper decks of the ship, with giant snowflakes, icicles and snow-covered rocks.

“Frozen” Fun Aboard Disney Cruise Line

The celebration begins with a high-energy line dance, set to the movie’s ice cutting scene, featuring the arrival of Kristoff, impressively twirling his ice picks, and Princess Anna. Kristoff and Anna’s beloved companions, Sven, the trolls and Olaf, make virtual appearances at the party. Sven engages the crowd in reindeer games like “Sven Says” and the “Troll Stroll,” and Olaf leads a sing along to his signature song, “In Summer.”

Elsa arrives with a snowy gust of wind, calling on guests to sing “Let it Go” with her as she conjures up a wintry spectacle to cool things down for Olaf. In true Disney fashion, Elsa unleashes her magic, sending a chill through everyone as the powerful Academy Award-winning song echoes from the ship. The evening concludes with more family dancing on the pool deck. Then the fun continues just for adults in the dance club featuring performances and frozen specialty drinks.

“Freezing the Night Away with Anna, Elsa and Friends” Deck Party

If you’re sailing on the Disney Magic or Disney Wonder this summer, be sure to post photos of this incredible day on Instagram and Twitter with #DisneyCruise. We have a feeling many of you will be saying, “Hands down, this is the best day of my life.”
