Deb's SnapShot Review of the Premium Package: Yes! When you factor in the reserved viewing, the beverages and premium dessert party PLUS reserved seating for the great Frozen Sing-Along show I feel it's worth the price. The only downside is that the fireworks view is not the best. However it beat being in the middle of Hollywood Blvd with the masses! Folks I spoke with all felt it was worth the price.
