With extremely long lines still awaiting Disneyland guests who want to meet Anna and Elsa, the park has debuted a new way to more easily see these “Frozen” stars.

Ahead of Mickey’s Soundsational Parade, a “Frozen” pre-parade now takes place. Anna and Elsa stand atop an icy float, also accompanied by an animated Olaf. It’s all set to an instrumental version of “Let It Go,” which park guests are happy to sing along to.

At Walt Disney World in Florida, the Magic Kingdom’s Festival of Fantasy parade also features the “Frozen” characters, though they are confined to a corner of a much larger Disney Princess float. Now on both coasts “Frozen” fans can catch glimpses of these popular characters without waiting hours.

    I was totally there yesterday to see the float. It makes me excited to see what else Disneyland is going to do with Frozen.

    Is this on before both shows of Mickey’s parade? We just saw the 6:30 show and Frozen was not there at all.

      I’m going to guess that the Frozen float only appears in the first parade because they probably have to close the line for Anna and Elsa during the parade. That way there’s only one Elsa and one Anna running around. My sister, who was a castmember for Disneyworld for a time, said all four of the parks collaborate on the time of parades for Mickey to ensure that Mickey only appears to be in one place at a time. Supposedly, that’s one of the reasons why they closed down the Animal Kingdom parade.

      Again, I don’t know the real reason why Elsa and Anna didn’t appear in the second parade. That’s just my best guess.

      What I mean is I’m guessing Disney doesn’t want to have two sets of Anna and Elsa running around at the same time (what would the kids think if they just got done meeting Anna and Elsa at their spot in Fantasyland and then saw them in the parade), but they also don’t want to have to close the line twice a day. Again, just an assumption.
