This Week in Disney News – Frozen Takes Over Disney’s Hollywood Studios, VIP Tours at the Magic Kingdom, and IllumiNations

frozen2We hope you’re all enjoying this long Fourth of July weekend! The news out of Walt Disney World this past week was dominated by all things Frozen, so let’s dig in!

Frozen Takes Center Stage at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

The royal sister of Arendelle made their first official visit to Disney’s Hollywood Studios on July 5 as part of the Frozen Summer Fun LIVE! event. The event includes a royal parade every morning and fireworks each night.

Guests can also ice skate at Oaken’s Frozen Funland located in Soundstage One. For $10 per half-hour session (includes skates, socks, and helmet) you can glide across the ice and imagine you’re in the heart of Arendelle.

And if that’s not enough Frozen fun, Disney also announced the new Frozen Summer Fun Premium Package which gives guests preferred VIP viewing for the morning parade (with snacks!) and VIP viewing for the evening fireworks (including a dessert party), in addition to VIP seating at For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration. The package is $59 for adults and $34 for kids.
