I’m sure you’ve heard the buzz by now that when we debut the new enhancements to the Disney Wonder this fall, we’re also premiering a brand-new stage show in the Walt Disney Theatre. “Frozen, A Musical Spectacular” is based on the Walt Disney Animation StudiosFrozen,” which is the number one animated feature of all time.

So what does it take to turn a blockbuster into a stage musical spectacular? We assembled a team of distinguished creative talent with Broadway credits and theatrical accolades, who you’ll hear from in this video on the making of “Frozen, A Musical Spectacular.” Take a look…

Aboard the Disney Wonder the 977-seat Walt Disney Theatre provides the perfect setting to immerse audiences in the kingdom of Arendelle and showcase the film’s renowned score. Songs like “For the First Time in Forever” and “Love is an Open Door” will be expanded into ensemble pieces, and the film’s wintry wizardry will be realized in lavish production numbers of “In Summer” and “Fixer Upper.”

The production features the popular music and lyrics by the creators of the “Frozen” film score, Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, and is adapted from the screenplay by four-time Tony Award nominee Chad Beguelin (“Gotta Dance,” “Aladdin,” “The Wedding Singer,” “Elf”).

Tell me, what excites you most about seeing this incredible story come to life onboard the Disney Wonder?
