Rock Your Disney Side party highlights entertainment from around Walt Disney World including Frozen, Festival of Fantasy

in Disney, Entertainment, Theme Parks

Walt Disney World welcomed invited press, travel agents, and their guests with a special party in Epcot’s World Showplace, dubbed Rock Your Disney Side.

It’s the same name as the upcoming 24-hour party that will be held on May 23 at Walt Disney World and Disneyland. But at this particular evening’s special event, Disney was showing off their newest entertainment offerings.

Just like in the theme parks, the most popular spot at the party was the pair of “Frozen” characters, Anna and Elsa, meeting and greeting with attendees alongside their snowman pal Olaf, all in front of an ice palace backdrop. While the wait time to meet these girls at the Magic Kingdom frequently exceeds 3 hours, this special event offered time to converse with them after waiting just a few minutes.
