I completely missed the Frozen Summer Fun in Hollywood Studios this summer. I am not one to go to Disney when it is so hot and crowded. I did go a couple weekends ago and went to Hollywood Studios to see For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration. Honestly, I am kind of over the Frozen mania going around but wanted to see this. I had a FastPass but probably did not need it. The place was not filled.
What I Loved about the Frozen Sing-Along
The newly-appointed royal historians of Arendelle. This couple was hilarious! For me it put something new in an attraction I thought I was going to be bored with. They retell the story of Elsa with errors and silly truth. They also have some jokes just for the adults that will go over the kid’s heads. Edited to add: I have been to this show several times now and each show is different.
The singing. Everyone does really sing, well most do. I did spot some party poopers but for the most part, a lot of people sing.
The scenery– The scenery is really pretty. It is sparkly and white. The costumes are well done as well.
The “Snow”– Who doesn’t like getting snowed on in Florida? The “snow” is really just soap, but it is the full effect of the songs with the snow!
What didn’t impress me:
Missing Songs: I wished they would have added Fixer Upper and the Frozen Heart song. They are two of my favorite songs and they got skipped over.
Movie Clips: Without the royal historians the show would have been VERY disappointing. Basically, all the singing is done to the movie clips. No Elsa, No Anna. Anna appears in the beginning and Elsa appears at the end. They do not lead the singing.
Overuse of the fog machine: I sat maybe in the middle of the audience and I still kind of got choked by all the fog from the fog machine. Instead of snow, Elsa makes fog and a lot of it. If I had known this before, I would have asked to be seated somewhere else.
Overall, I enjoyed the show and go to it often.
Frozen Sing-Along Tips
No FastPass Needed. You really don’t need a Fastpass for this show. Plus, having a FastPass does not get you better seats. Everyone is dumped into the same queuing area so seating is pretty much on a first come, first serve basis.
Catch the Preshow. While you are waiting for the doors to open there is a little show on the screens in front of the doors. It is a funny rendition of Arrendelle 101. Makes me laugh every time I see it.
Avoid the Fog. If you sit in the middle to the back of the auditorium you missed being fogged. Plus you are able to see all the effects without turning around.
Do the Frozen Sing-Along in the Afternoon. The hottest part of the day is in the late afternoon hours. This is the perfect time for the show.
Bring the Magic Home. You can buy Frozen: the Sign Along Edition. You may miss the historians but the sign along is the same.
