Disneyland Paris gives guests the chance to experience big-screen adventure in real life with an unmissable celebration: Frozen Celebration starting on 11 January 2020.
A New Celebration of the Adventures of Frozen
When it came out in 2013, Frozen became an immediate global phenomenon and the most successful animation film of all time at the box office. The adventures of Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven quickly reached Disneyland Paris, and the same will be true for Frozen 2. Fans of every age can take part in a brand-new experience all about their favourite Frozen characters at Disneyland Paris, from 11 to 3 May 2020. During Frozen Celebration at both Disney parks, guests can enjoy an interactive adventure with Anna and Elsa, meet Olaf and watch Frozen characters pass by on a new float.
“Frozen 2: An Enchanted Journey”
Anna and Elsa will wear their new outfits as seen by audiences in Frozen 2. A brand-new float will be unveiled for the occasion as it travels on the Parade Route. It will feature the silhouette of the mysterious Nokk, which audiences will have briefly glimpsed in the trailer. Olaf and Anna will be in an ice canoe and Sven will be at the rear of the float in this spectacular voyage inspired by Frozen 2. They will be surrounded by dazzling dancers and accompanied by the new music from the film.
- The brand-new float being created for “Frozen 2: An Enchanted Journey” will be the tallest float at Disneyland Paris at no less than 6 metres
- Anna, Elsa, Olaf, Kristoff and Sven will be on the new voyage, accompanied by about twenty dancers
- The dancers will be wearing costumes specially designed for the occasion by the creative team at Disneyland Paris
“Frozen: A Musical Invitation”
Walt Disney Studios Park will put on a brand-new show all about the first Frozen film from 17 November 2019 called
“Frozen: A Musical Invitation”. It will be performed several times a day for the Animation Celebration at Walt Disney Studios Park.
Princess Anna will be delighted to invite the audience to celebrate a major premiere with her: Queen Elsa’s famous ice palace opens to everyone for the first time. But before that, she’ll make sure that everyone learns the magic moves for celebrating her sister’s powers.
This happens in Kristoff’s barn – with a typically Norwegian decor – where the characters of Frozen and the audience enjoy a bit of interactive fun. And they’ll also get the chance to see Sven the reindeer for the very first time on a stage at Disneyland Paris. Kristoff will even sing “Reindeers Are Better Than People” live.
Then comes the big moment when Anna invites adults and children to enter a new space opening directly onto a room in Elsa’s palace. When she sings the show-stopping “Let It Go”, Frozen fans are invited to do the moves they have just learned, demonstrating their love for Elsa and the powers that she was afraid to reveal. This shared moment is marked by the song – always sung live – “Love is an Open Door”.
Guests can even meet Olaf at Animation Celebration from 17 November 2019, taking pictures with the adorable snowman from the enchanted forest.
Production facts, figures and anecdotes:
- The music for “Frozen: A Musical Invitation” was recorded at the legendary Abbey Road Studios in London
- An orchestra of 68 musicians were involved in the production
- Recording the 23 minutes of music for the show took less than 24 hours

Frozen Year-Round at Disneyland Paris
The beloved characters from the realm of Arendelle are celebrated throughout the day during Frozen Celebration. Every day, the famous Disney Stars on Parade ends on a high note with this blast of chilly air. Elsa uses her magic to make it snow as she passes by, with her sister Elsa and Olaf the adorable snowman looking on.
Any perfect day at Disneyland Paris has to include the Disney Illuminations evening show, performed every day when Disneyland Paris closes. The silhouette of Sleeping Beauty Castle becomes the backdrop for an incredible mapping show featuring favourite scenes from the biggest Disney films. Frozen is there too, with no less than two key sequences, including the epic moment when Elsa sings “Let it Go”. And the crowd often sings along together at this exact moment. How could you not be spellbound by it all?
Frozen also headlines in the Mickey and Magician show at Walt Disney Studios Park*. The audience follow Mickey as he learns magic spells from famous Disney Characters and are dazzled by breath-taking special effects. As they travel through this enchanting world of illusion, guests can meet Mickey and characters from Frozen, Aladdin, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, and many more as part of a dream Disney experience.
