'Frozen' sisters Anna and Elsa to host sing-alongs at Walt Disney World - Yahoo News
The newest addition to the theme park is expected to be a major hit this year, given the films smashing success: This spring, the movie edged past Toy Story 3 to become officially recognized as the highest-grossing animated film in history by Guinness World Records. And Disney is capitalizing on the films huge popularity by bringing the characters to life and recreating parts of the fairytale kingdom Arendelle in Frozen Summer Fun Live! at Hollywood Studios. Every day from July 5 until September 1, Princess Anna and Queen Elsa will make a royal entrance in a horse-drawn sleigh, in a procession down Hollywood Boulevard along with their posse of Frozen friends. Visitors will also be able to participate in a sing-along and belt out some of the most popular songs from the film soundtrack during a 20-minute show that includes an abbreviated retelling of the story with projections, lighting and special effects. To cool off from the summer sun, visitors can take up ice skating lessons at the winter wonderland Frozen Funland, while a daily dance party will also invite fans to cut a rug to DJ-spun medleys of the soundtrack. And to cap off the Frozen-themed day, the park will also explode in a nightly fireworks show at 9:45 pm, with projections of snow and ice images above Hollywood Blvd. Earlier this spring, a husband-wife duo uploaded a YouTube video of themselves lip synching to a Frozen song with such uncanny timing and convincing gestures, its since been viewed more than 15 million times. If youre not afraid of being stuck with an ear worm all day, the video can be viewed at http://bit.ly/1fs6hsG . The Frozen Summer Fun Premium Package offers reserved viewing and cost $59 for adults and $34 for kids.
