New ‘Frozen’ Experiences Brighten the Winter Months at Disney California Adventure and Disneyland Parks
ANAHEIM, Calif. – The Disneyland Resort kicks off 2015 with a special ticket offer exclusively for Southern California residents, with options for two or three days of magic and adventure at special prices. For a limited time, residents may purchase the special park tickets to experience “Frozen Fun” at Disney California Adventure Park and also enjoy classic attractions and entertainment throughout the Disneyland Resort.
The Southern California Resident tickets* are available beginning Jan. 7, the same day as two premieres – “Frozen Fun” at Hollywood Land, in Disney California Adventure Park, and a “Frozen” show at Fantasy Faire in Disneyland Park. “Frozen Fun” will entertain guests for a limited time and includes a new location where guests may greet sisters Anna and Elsa, from the Disney animated blockbuster “Frozen.”
To explore the new “Frozen” experiences, as well as the other fun and excitement at the Disneyland Resort, Southern California residents may use the special tickets to visit one park per day (either park) or purchase Park Hopper tickets for a two- or three-day period. The offer has four purchase options: a 2-day ticket with choice of one park per day for $139; a 2-day Park Hopper ticket for $178; a 3-day ticket with choice of one park per day for $169, or a 3-day Park Hopper for $208.
With these limited-time tickets, Southern California residents have the flexibility to make memories with family and friends over two or three days, from Jan. 7 through May 21, 2015.* (Dates blocked are March 20-April 4, 2015.) The sooner a purchase is made, the more time guests will have to return for a second or third visit.
‘Frozen Fun’ at Disney California Adventure Park
“Frozen Fun” in Disney California Adventure, a new limited-time offering, includes “Anna & Elsa’s Royal Welcome,” an elegant location inside the Disney Animation building for Anna and Elsa to receive visitors. Guests may reserve a time to meet the charming sisters by utilizing a Return Time ticket, available just outside the Animation building. Elsewhere in the Disney Animation building, guests at the Animation Academy will be asked “Do You Want to Draw a Snowman?” – with an Olaf drawing experience.
Another element of “Frozen Fun” is “For the First Time in Forever – A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration,” which transforms the Muppet*Vision 3D Theatre into the Crown Jewel Theatre of Arendelle. When Anna, Elsa and Kristoff take part in a comedic retelling of their story, musical sequences (and lyrics) are shown on the theatre’s large screen, and guests are invited to sing along.
Next door, in Stage 17, “Olaf’s Snow Fest” creates a winter scene where guests may meet and share warm hugs with Olaf. A giant play area with real snow encourages guests of all ages to build snow creations and zip down a snow slide. (Note: “Olaf’s Snow Fest” concludes April 30, 2015.)
After dark, just outside the entrance to “Olaf’s Show Fest,” the area transforms into “Freeze the Night! A Family Dance Party.” Guests will “chill out” in an interactive party that celebrates all things “Frozen” with exciting music, games, photo opportunities, drinks and snacks, ice sculptors and plenty of super-cool nighttime energy. Guests also may look for a friendly likeness of the “Frozen” character Marshmallow, posing for photos.
Exciting Attractions Throughout the Disneyland Resort
Additional “Frozen” experiences can be found in Disneyland, where the Fantasy Faire team of Mr. Smythe and Mr. Jones put their unique spin on the “Frozen” story. They have adapted it for the Royal Theatre, featuring their own wacky performances in key roles, along with Anna, Elsa and the Faire Maidens. Anna and Elsa also make daily “pre-parade” appearances on their own float immediately preceding “Mickey’s Soundsational Parade” in Disneyland.
Southern California residents using the special tickets may enjoy a variety of classic attractions and entertaining shows. These include voyages to a galaxy far, far away via Star Tours, “the wildest ride in the wilderness” aboard Big Thunder Mountain Railroad in Disneyland and an exciting run on the California Screamin’ coaster at Disney California Adventure. Cars Land in Disney California Adventure takes guests to Radiator Springs from the Disney●Pixar animated classic “Cars,” offering a ride on the extremely popular Radiator Springs Racers. Guests also may enjoy spectacular shows such as “Disney’s Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular” in Disney California Adventure or “Mickey and the Magical Map” and “Fantasmic!” in Disneyland. Themed dining locations range from Jolly Holiday Café on Main Street, U.S.A., in Disneyland to the Carthay Circle Restaurant and Lounge, Boardwalk Pizza & Pasta and Paradise Garden Grill restaurants in Disney California Adventure.
The special 2-day and 3-day tickets are an ideal way to catch all the fun, but they won’t be available for long. Southern California residents must purchase tickets by May 14, 2015. Tickets expire after May 21, 2015 and blockout dates apply. They can be purchased at Disneyland.com/tickets, The Disney Stores, Vons and other retail locations, as well as any Disneyland Resort ticket booth. Guests who purchase tickets online may print their tickets at home. When purchased in advance, 3-day tickets include one Magic Morning** early entry to Disneyland Park, which provides an extra hour of play on select days before the park opens to the general public. This benefit is not available to tickets purchased at Disneyland Resort ticket booths.
Through March 26, special hotel offers are available for guests who want to turn their Disneyland Resort visit into a getaway, including a stay at any of the three Disneyland Resort hotels. Guests may save up to 25 percent on premium rooms for select nights at a Disneyland Resort hotel for travel from January 4 through February 12, 2015, and up to 20 percent for travel from February 13 through March 26, 2015, if booked by February 12.*** Disneyland Resort hotel guests also may enjoy Extra Magic Hour morning admission to a Disneyland Resort theme park on applicable days.
