A Frozen Summer on Disney Cruise Line

When the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder cruise northern waters in the summer of 2015, the ships will give themselves over to a day (and evening) of Frozen fun, based on the hit Disney film of the same name. Daytime activities include a scavenger hunt, Maypole dance, "Do You Want to Build a Snowman," and, naturally, character meet and greets. Come evening, cruisers will enjoy a Frozen-themed dinner menu, and the "Freezing the Night Away with Anna, Elsa, and Friends" deck party. The Disney Magic will take things a step farther, with Anna, Elsa, and Olaf joining the cast of the classic Disney Dreams stage show for a three-song production number. If that' not cool enough, Disney "snow" will fall upon theater guests. Lest cruisers on the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy feel left out, starting this summer, character meet and greets on all four ships will feature favorites from Frozen, and Olaf's Summertime Freeze bar will be serving non-alcoholic specialty drinks on Castaway Cay.

"Man! I love everything. I like the pockets and the maps and the details and the maps an the tips and the pockets! "
-- comment submitted by Allison Prker (2015-01-10 18:01:29)

"organized and very informative "
-- comment submitted by Lynn Maloney (2015-01-02 15:01:54)

"The color pictures; fold out maps; elastic band; restaurant summaries and ratings; ... Just about everything. I bought this for our first ever trip to Disney World for our retirement trip and it was so nice to have a chance to do some advance planning since I knew absolutely nothing about Disney at that time. We have since been back six times. I buy this book for gifts for anyone going to Disney and they love it! "
