It’s been three months since the final “Aladdin: A Musical Spectacular” show in the Hyperion Theater at Disney California Adventure, and we’ve since had one glimpse at the rehearsal process for its replacement, the “Frozen: Live at the Hyperion” show, scheduled to open at the end of May.

Now the Disney Parks Blog has offered us another peek behind the scenes of the new show, which the blog describes as “unlike any seen before at the Disneyland Resort.” In this video, the musical’s technical director Mitch Atkins tells us about the process of refitting the theater with the magic and wonder of Arendelle.


“Frozen: Live at the Hyperion” is currently scheduled to open on Friday, May 27th at the Hyperion Theater in Hollywood Land at Disney California Adventure.

    But they couldn’t give the Hyperion a lobby and real facade while they were at it? Once the show opens they won’t shut it down to add those so I guess it’s not happening anytime in the next several years 🙁

      Was the Aladdin door part of the big Hollywood Backlot NYC backdrop, or was it somewhere else? (I didn’t see the DCA Aladdin, so I wouldn’t know.) Always thought that was kinda neat, and the Studios should have done something with theirs.
      If there’s a change to the Backlot, as it keeps seeming there’ll be every other time DCA fools with it, the theater will get its change too, but there’s no reason to mess with theming at the moment.
