'Frozen' still hot at Disney theme park, celebration extended

The popularity of Frozen is still so strong that Disney's Hollywood Studios just can't, well, Let it Go. The park's summerlong events celebrating the movie have been extended another month, Disney announced Thursday. The themed series was supposed to end Sept. 1, but the park will extend everything through Sept. 28, though the fireworks will only be Fridays through Sundays after Sept. 1. Other Frozen events include: • A daily processional at 11 a.m., featuring Anna and Elsa and mountain man Kristoff. • Multiple rounds of 30-minute singalongs at the park's Premier Theater. • Frozen Funland, which includes an ice rink (skating sessions are $10 for 30 minutes, including the use of ice skates, socks and a helmet), snow-related activities and special retail options. • A live band and DJ headline a daily dance party for guests. But the meet-and-greet opportunities with Frozen princesses Anna and Elsa remain only at Magic Kingdom, where fans often wait three hours or more for a picture with them. The movie is not only Disney's top-grossing film; at more than $1 billion in sales, it is the top-grossing animated film of all time. — Sharon Kennedy Wynne, Times staff writer
