The popularity of “Frozen” has prompted Disneyland to expand its entertainment offerings based on the smash hit film. At Disney California Adventure by day, guests can meet and greet with Anna, Elsa, and Olaf. But by night, Hollywood Land transforms into the Freeze the Night party, bringing a little something for all ages.
Freeze the Night follows in the footsteps of Mad T Party, ElecTRONica, and Glow Fest, adding dancing, drinking, and other unique entertainment to the Hollywood Land area of the park.
Parks and Cons was there to capture the debut of Freeze the Night, sharing video with us below.

It all kicks off with a performance by the Ice Breakers dancers, featuring a familiar “Frozen” song at the beginning before launching into a few other routines. Elsa’s snow monster Marshmallow then appears on screen as two MC’s on stage officially open the night’s events, with DJ-driven dance music filling the air.

One of the most popular features of Freeze the Night is a meet-and-greet with Marshmallow, appearing as an inflatable puppet – but quite the lifelike one. Olaf also continues to meet throughout the evening event.
Digital projections are used to enhance the “icy” feeling of the area, complete with snowy footsteps appearing on the ground.
There’s a food truck for those who are hungry and plenty of beverages, alcoholic and non, to keep everyone dancing the night away.
Ice carvers perform on stage throughout the night, creating some familiar “Frozen” faces.
Freeze the Night isn’t overwhelmingly “Frozen.” Though it opens with a song from the film, the DJ does not play any of the movie’s soundtrack, instead choosing standard dance tunes. But DJs do get to have a little more interactivity with the crowd now, stepping away from their headphones to chat with the crowd.
But there is a bit more “Frozen” music to be found, as a live performance of “Let It Go” is part of the Freeze the Night party.
Ultimately, the event’s atmosphere is lively and energetic, much like its predecessors, and will surely draw crowds of adults and children alike, whether fans of “Frozen” or those simply looking for a little nighttime fun.
