    Wouldn’t it be easier if they actually ordered a TON of costumes? By flooding the market with them, the could stop people from buying up as many as they can carry out! Just a thought.

      They can and probably have ordered a ton of stuff. My husband is a buyer for a company (computers) but has done retail too. He has stated that it takes 2-3 months for them to make the items in China then it takes a good month or so for it to be shipped and get through customs here. Then additional time to arrive at the stores. It also has to be disbursed across the country which would limit the amount of items in each store. I’m sure it’s just that Disney wasn’t expecting it to be this popular. I just hope they have the orders big enough for Christmas time!

    It warms my heart (pun intended) to know that we can expect a lot more FROZEN in the future.

    Anyways, I really hope Imagineers are not implying that they are developing attraction(s) for Walt Disney World and ignoring Disneyland. I understand that Disney World has a lot more room for expansion, but surely they can figure out something. We love FROZEN just as much over here on the West Coast.

    There is an interview with the show runners of Once Upon A Time on Entertainment Weekly’s Popwatch. They state that Elsa will be similar in take to her movie form.

      (Like they’ve ever stuck to the original non-Disney versions of the stories BEFORE…)

      I hope not, the whole cliffhanger was in fact that it was something so scary that it had to bottled up in Rumples basement. I love that the show takes the characters and puts them back in the “original” form… If you read original fairytales they are very dark and scary. The show is more a nod to those stories. I absolutely love what they did with Peter Pan!

    We were so disappointed after 2hours of waiting in the hot sun..sweaty and tired crying children sitting on the ground because strollers were not allowed in and they are not even allowed to sit along the walls while waiting! When it was our turn to come in, I expected much more than just a little tiny place they made out of part of a restaurant. They only thing kids can do here is taking pictures with Elsa and Anna. These characters should be included in the royal hall to save millions of us standing in the sun for hours if Disney was more considerate of the well being of our children who travelled from far away to come see them. Maybe we deserve to know exactly what we are lining up for. We could had spent those hours for different attractions for the limited time while we are here in Disney. I think they made us spend more time waiting than seeing different attraction. Maybe they purposely do that so we will have to go for multiple days instead of just a day or two. It’s a place for children to enjoy yet they are purposely making these children wait in these long lines under in unbearable sun rays…they are thinking of filling up their pockets than our miserable children!

      1) I’m assuming you went when it was at Epcot. It HAS been moved to the Royal Hall. In fact, that mentioned in this article. It was only intended to be a short term thing at Epcot after the movie came out but was so wildly popular it was extended and then moved.

      2) There is a VERY good reason for the no stroller rules – fire safety. In the event of having to evacuate the line, having strollers in there would be a nightmare. Not to mention the fact that strollers take up a LOT of space. Do you realize how much longer the line would be if filled with strollers? You can’t bring them into any other line so why would you think you could do it for this one?

      3) “They only thing kids can do here is taking pictures with Elsa and Anna.” Was this your first character meet-and-greet? That’s all they ever are! It was listed as a meet-and-greet so your expectations were clearly much higher than they should be. Sometimes the characters have themed areas and sometimes they pop up somewhere in the park, but the interaction is still the same. Walk up, say hello, hug, get autograph, pose for picture, move on. What more did you want from them? 30 minutes set aside just for you and your kids to have a snowball fight?

        No she is referring to Disneyland. The line is ridiculously long and the “palace” is half of a restaurant. It is very small and dinky/

    Why not just retheme Blizzard Beach into Arendelle?

    It would work really well with Olaf everywhere…having fun in the sun as a snow man.

    @Trinity – get a handle on yourself, and your expectations for that matter. They presented what they offered, a meet and greet. There was no implication of some icy wonderland with talking reindeer and a snowman that comes to life. I mean, seriously. No one forced you to wait in line, you could have left. Additionally, the no stroller rule is actually IN THE BEST INTEREST OF YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN. All those strollers would be a fire hazard. Your sense of entitlement is staggering. Hey, I went to Target the other day and they didn’t give me my items for free! I think I will write a letter…

    Can some Disney exec give us a reason for not allowing ANOTHER pair of Elsa & Anna in Epcot’s Norway BESIDES the one in Princess Fairytale Hall? Seriously, what is your pointing in making this 4 hour waiting thing to your Guests? It’ s beyond me really.

    Frozen today is alot like Snow white and Cinderella was during thier time. I think to use Blizzard beach for Frozen, just wouldn’t be enough for the amount of success it has had. It has set records and would be a Gem if they created a good size park,( like animal kingdom)to bring in the fans of the movie.
