‘Frozen’ joins Disney
Disney’s Hollywood Studios in central Florida will add to the “Frozen” frenzy by offering a daily character procession, sing-alongs and a nightly party based on the hit animated movie.
Disney recently announced that “Frozen Summer Live” – a character-driven procession down the park’s Hollywood Boulevard with Anna, Elsa and Kristoff – would begin July 5 and run through Sept. 1, each day at 11 a.m.
There’s also a new sing-along show, a dance party, “Frozen”-themed fireworks, a polar playground, ice skating rink and ice carving demonstrations. Associated Press
