If you are a Frozen fan, the Disney Wish is about to bring you into the films like you have never experienced them before. For the first time (in forever), Guests will officially be able to become citizens of Arendelle with Anna, Elsa, Sven, Olaf, and Kristoff as a Frozen dining experience is coming our way!
Today, during the Disney Parks Blog Disney Wish announcement, we were able to take a first-hand look into Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship. Bookings will begin on May 27, and now, aside from the stunning interior that the ship has displayed, Guests have an even more exciting reason to want to book a sailing with the Disney Wish.
We have seen themed dining on other Disney Cruise Line ships in the past. Specifically, the Disney animated film, Princess and the Frog, has a themed dining experience called Tiana’s Place on the Disney Wonder. Here, Guests can take a leap into the film and carry on where the movie ends and, finally, get to experience Tiana’s Place!
Now, it seems Frozen will be getting a similar treatment aboard the new ship. It will be called Arendelle: A Frozen Adventure. Although not much information has been expressed in terms of dining details — we do know the fare will be Nordic-inspired — if we take a look at both Frozen and especially Frozen 2, we know that the people of Arendelle play a key role in the films, so perhaps, dinner Guests will get to play the role of Arendelle’s citizens. Though, this has not been confirmed, but we would love for that to be the case.
Now, it seems we get to also join in with all of our favorite characters from the film and enjoy a celebration that will feature delicious food and it will play some classic tunes like “Let It Go”, “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” and more!
This will be the first-ever theatrical dining experience where Guests will experience Elsa making magic right in the middle of the dining room. Plus, with the Nordic-influenced menu, the food will be something to look forward to, just as much as the performances!
As Disney has noted:
Arendelle: A Frozen Dining Adventure
Arendelle: A Frozen Dining Adventure is Disney’s first “Frozen”-themed theatrical dining experience, bringing the kingdom of Arendelle to life through immersive live entertainment — featuring favorite characters like Elsa, Anna, Kristoff and Olaf — and world-class cuisine infused with Nordic influences.
Extending the “Frozen” Story
Only on the Disney Wish will families be invited to attend a royal engagement party for Queen Anna and Kristoff, picking up the story where Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Frozen 2” left off. Elsa and Olaf will host the celebration with catering provided by their friend Oaken’s “Hearty Party Planning Service… and Sauna” and live entertainment by “local” musicians who specialize in Nordic renditions of familiar “Frozen” songs.
Throughout the meal, guests will enjoy live musical performances by these beloved characters and will even get the opportunity to join the festivities with fun table crafts, hilarious sing-alongs and a grand finale that’ll have everyone in the audience on their feet.
Designed in the style of a theater-in-the-round, this purpose-built entertainment venue will feature dining tables situated around a small center stage and all the theatrical bells and whistles needed to bring a story to life in 360-degree glory. Invisible fiber optics embedded in the ceiling will conjure Elsa’s icy magic, and panoramic windows will magically transform from real-time ocean views to the colorful dancing lights of the Aurora Borealis.
Disney Cruise Line is developing brand-new looks for Anna and Kristoff, plus an all-new way to encounter Olaf through true-to-scale, cutting-edge puppetry that can talk and interact with families as they dine, lending his signature humor and charm to the merriment.
The one-of-a-kind menu for Arendelle: A Frozen Dining Adventure combines traditional flavors and ingredients from the Nordic region with modern, family-friendly fare. Guests will delight in this scrumptious smorgasbord of superior seafoods, rustic game dishes and tasty nods to the “Frozen” story. And, last but not least, dessert! It wouldn’t be Queen Anna’s party without plenty of chocolate.
