Contributing photographer Jason of disneygeek.com sends us these photos from his trip to the parks on Friday, December 19, 2014. This posting will focus on the Frozen additions to the parks. Frozen Fun officially starts January 7, but a preview of the offerings was scheduled to start on December 20. As of Friday only one piece was ready to go and that was the Arendelle addition to Storybook Land. The rest of the offerings were still being worked on at the time of Jason’s trip.

Hollywood Land at Disney California Adventure will be the epicenter for Frozen Fun. The archways leading to the Backlot area have been repainted blue.

Some blue around the stage, but not many other visible changes. The House of Cards signage is still up though.

The lights have been swapped out and are all blue and white now.

The Character Close-Up signage has snow flakes now in preparation for the Frozen sisters to move in.

The Grotto area is closed off. Wonder if Frozen is taking over there too?

  1. They got rid of Muppets???

    ******* Jason Reply *********
    Currently the Frozen sing along is in the Muppet theater and the sign and props are gone. It was announced as a limited time event.

  2. The little Arendale Village looks cute, but I think it’s sad that they turfed out Kermit and his friends. The thought of the Muppets homeless and living on steam vents for warmth is just too sad to bear.

  3. I frowned at that “Do you want to draw a snowman” sign and said aloud “At this point I want to set a snowman on fire”. lol

    I do hope that Muppetvision shows back up. It’s a nice way to cool down and yet another Frozen thing is just going to be a nightmare of a line.

  4. Having just completed a trip to Disney World, I have to say I am thoroughly over all the Frozen mania. It’s really become like some sort of rash that just keeps growing. Whole shops have been taken over with just Frozen merchandise and pretty much every shop has a large area dedicated to the same 20 or 30 items. As an adult it really sucks some of the joy out of being there to see so much of the parks being taken over by just one movie.

    There’s a crane being used to do some work on Cinderella’s Castle. The cynical part of me fears the next time I’m there it will be Elsa’s Ice Palace instead and they’ll have renamed the park to the “Magic Kingdom of Arendale.”

    Maybe I’ll just hold off on a return trip until Avatar Land is complete in Animal Kingdom. At least then I’ll know there will be some refuge from Frozen.
