We’ve been pleased to be able to reintroduce a number of guest favorites to the Walt Disney World theme parks in recent weeks, along with some fun, seasonal surprises. Today, I’m thrilled to tell you that another popular entertainment experience, “For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration,” is returning to Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Beginning Monday, October 5, you can once again join Erik and Aria, the Royal Historians of Arendelle, for their comedic retelling of the unique story of their kingdom, filled with delightful, sing-along moments from Disney’s “Frozen” and special appearances by Anna, Elsa and Kristoff. “For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration” will be the same incredible show guests have loved for the past six years, with some adjustments to staging and audience seating to allow for appropriate physical distancing. 

The Incredibles

During your visit to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you’ll also want to be on the lookout for some of the biggest Disney and Pixar stars, as they make their way up Hollywood Boulevard and across the park in special, pop-up motorcades. Rolling intermittently throughout the day, you never know when some of your favorite characters might pass by, so have your camera ready! Each celebrity motorcade features stars on the street and others – like Mickey Mouse, Edna Mode or Doc McStuffins – riding in colorful custom convertibles powered by Chevrolet. 

Mickey and Friends Motorcade highlights Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Pluto and their friends Chip ‘n’ Dale, accompanied by a bouncy musical score inspired by Disney cartoon shorts. The Pixar Pals Motorcade takes the Incredibles, Woody, Buzz Lightyear and others down the avenue, waving to their fans to the beat of the Green Army Drum Corps. And the Disney Junior Stars Motorcade brings favorite TV friends Fancy Nancy, Doc McStuffins and Vampirina to Hollywood Boulevard. 


Disney Junior fans are also invited to join the fun at “Disney Junior Play & Dance!” in the Animation Courtyard. Each party performance throughout the day features a dynamic DJ spinning favorite songs from Disney Junior TV shows, plus special onstage appearances by Disney Junior stars such as Mickey Mouse, Vampirina and more. 

If you’ve got plans to visit Disney’s Hollywood Studios this fall, be sure to catch all these great entertainment experiences while enjoying the parks.


  • I am so excited as I will be traveling to WDW this December!

  • Now Disney as raised capacity in the parks and is having Frozen sing-along again, when will Annual Passes be available again?

  • With “For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration” returning to an indoor seated area, I can’t imagine it being too long before limited-capacity showings of Fantasmic! returns as the first night time spectacular. My fingers are crossed, anyway.

  • Glad to have Frozen back, but please don’t take the Orchestra! So wonderful!

  • Please dont take the Orchestra! Just saw them a couple of weeks ago at HS and they were FABULOUS! I would go see them at every opportunity!

  • Bring the orchestra back!

  • I am glad to hear Frozen is returning. Please don’t let the Grand Floridian Society Orchestra leave. We loved listening to them at the Grand Floridian it is such a intricate part of that resort for years! They will be sadly missed.

  • So excited to see Frozen returning! But I’m waiting anxiously for the Citizens of Hollywood to come back!! They’re the highlight of my trip and make that park feel “complete”. Maybe some social distanced driving around, performing on the balconies like they used to, or little skits up on the stage where the hat used to be!

  • I’m glad Frozen will be back but I heard today that Disney let go of the Disney Society Orchestra and that makes me sad. We watched them a few weeks ago while we were at the park and they were wonderful! So enjoyable that I was hoping it could become a permanent show even if it had to move theaters. Please reconsider keeping it!
