All New ‘Frozen’-Inspired Stage Musical Coming to Disney California Adventure Park in 2016

Disney’s blockbuster musical “Frozen” has become a true phenomenon around the world and soon, the story of “Frozen” will come to spectacular life in an all-new theatrical production in summer 2016 at the Hyperion Theater at Disney California Adventure park.


This new show will immerse you in the world of “Frozen” as never before, with elaborate costumes and sets, stunning special effects and surprising scenic transformations.

“Our stage production of ‘Frozen’ will stay true to the heart and soul of the film,” says Dana Harrel, Portfolio Creative Entertainment Executive, Walt Disney Imagineering. “Anna and Elsa will carry the audience on an emotional journey that includes show-stopping production numbers and a few unique theatrical twists. We can’t wait for everyone to see it!”

With a new show set to open at the Hyperion Theater, it’s time for Aladdin to make his final wish and set the Genie free, as the cast of the award-winning “Disney’s Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular” prepares to take its final curtain call on January 10, 2016 after nearly 14,000 shows.


“Disney’s Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular” has taken millions of guests wonder by wonder since its debut in January 2003, bringing with it such fantastic theatrical delights as Aladdin’s entrance on the elephant, a magic carpet ride over the audience, an original song by Alan Menken and the ever-evolving, tour-de-force performance of the wise-cracking Genie. To this day, the incredible talent of the show’s captivating cast has made every turn a surprise, every moment red letter.

“Thanks to our amazing cast and the many, many fans, ‘Disney’s Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular’ has enjoyed a longer run at Disney California Adventure park than we could have ever imagined,” said Kris Theiler, Vice President of Operations for Disney California Adventure park. “Today, we are excited to share more exciting news about another story that will soon come to life for guests at the Hyperion Theater. With larger-than-life musical numbers, wondrous scenery and lovable characters, ‘Frozen’ will begin entertaining guests in 2016.”

“Disney’s Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular” is scheduled to be performed several times daily through January 10, 2016, so fans of the show still have plenty of opportunities left to catch a magic carpet ride to Agrabah. Additionally, the Broadway production of “Aladdin” continues its successful run in New York. Stay tuned to Disney Parks Blog in the coming months for details on how we plan to celebrate the Disney California Adventure park favorite before, as Genie says, he’s “outta here!”

Day of ‘Frozen’ Fun Coming to Disney Cruise Line This Summer

Who’s excited to hang out with your favorite royal sisters this summer?! Disney Cruise Line recently announced brand-new “Frozen”-inspired experiences, and now there is more information about the ones exclusively for Disney Magic and Disney Wonder cruisers.


Starting on Disney Cruise Line’s summertime voyages in Alaska and Northern Europe, on one special day a cool arctic breeze will come through overnight and transform the ship into a winter wonderland. 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.

Feeling as if you’ve been transported to the Kingdom of Arendelle, you’ll be ready to begin the day’s adventures. In addition to getting warm hugs from Olaf, kids won’t want to miss “Anna’s Chase for the Chocolate,” a scavenger hunt for those who share Anna’s sense of adventure with a special surprise for finishing the game. They can also join the “Do You Want to Build a Snowman” activity where they’ll take on Elsa’s magical powers to make snow and ice!


For families, there’s “The Maypole Swirl and Twirl” where you’ll learn a traditional Scandinavian dance spinning and braiding giant ribbons, along with a specially themed dining experience that night including a menu inspired by traditional Nordic fare and special dishes inspired by the film. Then, the day of frozen fun culminates with an extravagant evening celebration, “Freezing the Night Away with Anna, Elsa and Friends.” By now, the freeze has spread to the upper decks of the ship, with giant snowflakes, icicles and snow-covered rocks.

During this high-energy deck party, you’ll sing and dance with the famous royal sisters of Arendelle and their fun-loving Nordic companions. After some fun line dancing led by Anna and Kristoff, their beloved companions, Sven, the trolls and Olaf, make virtual appearances. 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.”

Land of “Frozen” Coming to Disney Cruise Line in Summer 2015

Later in the party, 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.

I’m sure you agree this day is going to be pretty “cool.” Pun intended! If you missed Port Adventure Manager Arnaldo Zanonato’s post about Anna and Elsa’s adventure ashore with us in Norway, be sure to check it out to learn about yet another extra special experience you can get with us this summer.
