A Day of Frozen Fun will return to the high seas this summer during select European and Alaskan voyages aboard the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder. DCL is promising to immerse guests in the animated hit with experiences such as a deck party, port adventures, meet and greets and more all inspired by the film.
During the schedule Day of Frozen Fun guests will be transported to the land of Frozen when the ship is transformed into a winter wonderland and a day of frozen fun culminates with an extravagant celebration with friends from the Kingdom of Arendelle.
On one special morning, guests will 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.
Icy adventures and fun for the entire family throughout the day include all-new meet and greets and themed experiences:
- Memorable moments with Anna, Elsa, and for the first time in forever, Kristoff and Olaf
- “Anna’s Chocolate Chase” scavenger hunt for those who share Anna’s sense of adventure, with a special surprise for finishing the game
- “Do You Want to Build a Snowman” activity where kids take on Elsa’s magical powers to make snow and ice
- “Oaken’s Maypole Swirl and Twirl” for families to learn a traditional Scandinavian dance spinning and braiding giant ribbons
- “Frozen” themed dining experience, including a menu inspired by traditional Nordic fare and special dishes inspired by the film.
The evening fun kicks off with “Freezing the Night Away with Anna, Elsa and Friends,” a family-friendly interactive deck party featuring 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.
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.
Anna and Kristoff’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, followed by fun just for adults in the nightclub featuring dance performances and frozen specialty drinks.
Adventures Ashore in Norway
Disney Cruise Line guests who travel aboard the Disney Magic to Norway, the land that inspired Arendelle from “Frozen,” have the opportunity to join exciting Port Adventures that bring this fairytale setting to life. One signature adventure ashore in Ålesund, Norway, created exclusively for Disney Cruise Line, immerses guests in the splendor and charm of Norway, with the help of Anna and Elsa, in an enchanting storybook village.
Other shore excursions take Disney Cruise Line guests to discover the breathtaking natural wonders, stunning architecture and rich Scandinavian culture depicted in the film. Seven-night voyages begin May 29, 2016, sailing through Norwegian fjords and calling on ports including Stavanger, Ålesund, Geiranger, and Bergen, Norway.
Frozen Stage Show Integration Continues
Aboard the Disney Magic, Anna, Elsa and Olaf are part of the line up of beloved Disney characters who together teach a young girl the power of her dreams in the Disney Cruise Line original production, “Disney Dreams … An Enchanted Classic.” Scenes featuring “Frozen” characters include renditions of three popular songs: “Let it Go,” “For the First Time in Forever” and “In Summer.” The show segment is a heartfelt, humorous and memorable tribute to the “Frozen” film, preserving its endearing and playful tones with an inspiring message. Special effects are magical, with a snowfall throughout the theatre and a breathtaking transformation of the young girl’s room into her own ice palace.
Additionally, there is credible information pointing to new Frozen musical to replace Toy Story the Musical aboard the Disney Wonder. However, this would not take place until the end of the year at the earliest.
On all four Disney ships, Olaf is giving warm hugs alongside Anna and Elsa. Children and families have the opportunity to meet and take photographs with their favorite “Frozen” friends on their royal tour of the Disney Fantasy, Disney Dream, Disney Wonder and Disney Magic.
Hi Scott, do you know which specific sailings will this be featured in?
Alejandro, I did not list specific sailing as DCL did not provide that level of detail. I think it would be safe to say the Alaskan cruises and the Norwegian Fjords sailings for sure.
Thanks for posting this all over again. I really enjoyed watching. I enjoyed seeing the menus, too. I grew up with my Norwegian family and all the food…brings back warm memories of all the yummy foods. We’re going back to Norway in September (flying) and now I’m more excited than ever! Can’t wait!!
I’m booked on the 17 June cruise through Iceland and Norway – I think we were told that the Frozen night would be after a day in Stavenger, but if we’re in a port that day, it doesn’t seem like we would have the “Day of Frozen Fun”? Seems like this would make more sense for a Sea Day. That is assuming that the Day of Frozen Fun is on the same day as the Freezing the Night Away party?
They had the celebration on the Baltic cruises last year as well. The Chocolate Chase reward wasn’t chocolatey enough for my wife, but I do love rice crispy treats. I believe that the celebration was on the Stockholm or Helsinki day for that cruise, don’t remember without pulling the navigators.
