The Disney Wish will bring more Disney stories and characters to life than ever before, and I am so excited for our guests to be immersed in classic Disney storytelling from the moment they step on board. One of those stories that our guests know and love is “Frozen,” and on the Disney Wish, your favorite characters from the kingdom of Arendelle will be featured in unique ways, from an all-new theatrical dining experience to “Frozen Fun” for kids in Disney’s Oceaneer Club.
Arendelle: A Frozen Dining Adventure
Arendelle: A Frozen Dining Adventure is Disney’s first “Frozen”-themed theatrical dining experience, and we are so excited to invite guests on the Disney Wish to the Arendelle castle for a royal engagement party for Queen Anna and Kristoff!
Picking up the story where Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Frozen 2” left off, Elsa and Olaf will host the celebration with catering provided by their friend Oaken’s “Hearty Party Planning Service… and Sauna” and live entertainment by “local” musicians who specialize in Nordic renditions of familiar “Frozen” songs.
Designed in the style of a theater-in-the-round, this purpose-built entertainment venue was designed to bring the story to life, with dining tables situated around a small center stage and all the theatrical bells and whistles. Invisible fiber optics embedded in the ceiling will conjure Elsa’s icy magic, and panoramic windows will magically transform from real-time ocean views to the colorful dancing lights of the Aurora Borealis.
Throughout the meal, guests will enjoy live musical performances by these beloved characters and will even get the opportunity to join the festivities with fun table crafts, hilarious sing-alongs and a grand finale that’ll have everyone in the audience on their feet. The one-of-a-kind menu for Arendelle: A Frozen Dining Adventure combines traditional flavors and ingredients from the Nordic region with modern, family-friendly fare. Oh, and don’t forget dessert, where you can bet that one of Anna’s favorite foods – chocolate – will be on the menu!
Anna and Elsa’s Sommerhus
Disney’s Oceaneer Club on the Disney Wish will be home to Fairytale Hall, a royal trio of activity rooms where kids will become part of the story in three unique ways. One of these rooms, Anna and Elsa’s Sommerhus, will allow kids to test newfound icy powers during “Frozen Fun,” a series of gesture-based games hosted by none other than everyone’s favorite snowman, Olaf! Kids can have snowball fights with friendly trolls, hunt for the mischievous Snowgies – and you never know who might stop by to join in the “Frozen” fun!
“Frozen” Fun Across the Fleet
There are many other ways our guests can celebrate “Frozen” across the Disney Cruise Line fleet. On the Disney Wonder and Disney Fantasy, “Frozen, A Musical Spectacular” is an original Broadway-style stage show that follows the captivating adventure of Anna and Elsa as they embark on a journey to discover the meaning of sisterhood, inner strength and true love.
Guests can experience an entire day of “Frozen”-themed fun on select Disney Wonder and Disney Magic summer sailings. The day begins with a winter wonderland makeover of the ship’s atrium, followed by meet-and-greets with characters, special activities, a Nordic-inspired menu at dinner and a deck party to end the day hosted by Anna, Elsa and Kristoff!
The Disney Wonder also features a one-of-a-kind space for kids ages 3 to 12 called “Frozen Adventures,” where kids can prepare for a royal coronation at “Frozen Adventures,” followed by a summery sing-along and games with Olaf.
The “Frozen” fun on Disney Cruise Line isn’t limited to on board only – on Castaway Cay, Disney’s private island paradise in the Bahamas, the Olaf-inspired beverage location Summertime Freeze serves non-alcoholic specialty frozen drinks in souvenir cups. Only Disney Cruise Line guests can cool down with creative menu items inspired by “Frozen,” like “Olaf’s Flurry Freeze” and “Sven’s Carrot Delight.”
Speaking of Olaf, he isn’t the only one who loves summer! I do too, and the summer of 2022 and the debut of the Disney Wish can’t get here soon enough. Stay tuned to Disney Parks Blog as we continue to share more about what’s coming to the Disney Wish and Disney Cruise Line!
