Guests enjoyed singing along to songs from the “Frozen” soundtrack during
“For the First Time in Forever: A ‘Frozen’ Sing-Along Celebration.”
It took only minutes for the Premiere Theater to fill to capacity. Girls, boys, women and men rushed to take their seats for the start of a special sing-along for the hit “Frozen,” a comedy-adventure of Walt Disney Animation Studios, considered the highest-grossing animated film of all time. The performance, “For the First Time in Forever: A ‘Frozen’ Sing-Along Celebration,” gives guests an opportunity to join in on sing-along moments from the film’s soundtrack, while also enjoying a retelling of scenes from the movie from the Royal Historians of Arendelle. And join in they do — with many, adults as much as the kids, belting out the lyrics to one tune after another. The historians keep the guests laughing, while Princess Anna, Queen Elsa and rugged mountain man Kristoff make appearances on stage. At the end, guests become Honorary Citizens of Arendelle. Truly an entertaining half-hour experience!
The show — offered at several times throughout the day — is part of “Frozen Summer Fun LIVE!” at Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios. “Frozen Summer Fun LIVE!” continues through September 28, 2014. Most activities are included as part of the regular park admission to Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Five-year-old Braxton Camille Smith was beaming with joy when meeting Anna and Elsa at Princess Fairytale Hall at Disney’s Magic Kingdom park.

The lineup includes the following and more:

Anna’s & Elsa’s Royal Welcome is a royal procession at 11 a.m. each day down Hollywood Boulevard featuring Anna and Elsa and appearances by Kristoff and Olaf the summer-loving snowman.
Frozen Fireworks spectacular is a nightly fireworks show that runs through September 1 (with the exception of August 23) and then on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from September 5 to 28. You haven’t seen a fireworks show like this — with special projections of snow and ice images and a captivating presentation set to the film’s soundtrack.
Soundstage One at Hollywood Studios brings “Frozen Funland” amidst a winter wonderland. Enjoy plenty of frozen festivities inside the makeshift adventure park built by Oaken and his cousins.
There’s more at Hollywood Studios, plus “Frozen” action at Magic Kingdom, including the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade in which Anna and Elsa appear, and the Celebrate the Magic nighttime projection show that transforms Cinderella Castle with visuals from “Frozen.” You’ll also get to meet and take pictures with Anna and Elsa inside Princess Fairytale Hall in Fantasyland. Be sure to grab their autographs while there as well!
