Meet Olaf at Disney Parks Hollywood Studios

New! Meet Olaf at All New Celebrity Spotlight – Mickey and Minnie too: 

Beginning May 8th, join some of some of our favorite Disney characters as they live out their Hollywood dreams in two new character greeting experiences at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. In Celebrity Spotlight, located in the park’s Echo Lake district, you’re invited to meet that lovable snowman Olaf, from Disney’s blockbuster film “Frozen.” Olaf is living his dream “In Summer,” chilling on the beach and ready to give warm hugs to all his new friends.

Just around the bend on Commissary Lane is where you’ll find “Mickey and Minnie Starring in Red Carpet Dreams.” Walk the red carpet and step right into a scene with Minnie, where she appears as a Tinsel Town starlet in a ritzy setting! Next, join Mickey in a scene from “Fantasia,” where he’s portraying his iconic role of the Sorcerer’s Apprentice.

Are You Crazy Enough to Go to Walt Disney World at Christmas?

Reminder! Kristoff & Olaf To Host Frozen Games At Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park: 

If you need a little more Olaf, and let’s face it, who can ever get enough of our summer lover, Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park will play host to the inaugural Frozen Games beginning May 27th.

The Winter Games Committee has taken advantage of the freak snowstorm over Central Florida and will host an impromptu sporting event known as The Frozen Games through Aug 21. They’ve even invited Kristoff and Olaf to lead teams of guests in a day full of fun “Frozen” activities, before the warm sun melts the snow away. Guests visiting the water park can to join “Team Kristoff” or “Team Olaf” and participate in a variety of activities, including Ice Pail Relays, a Snowball Toss to Ski Pole Limbo and Slide Races. Olaf and Kristoff will join the Winter Games Committee members in the games’ Opening and Closing Ceremonies, and they will give updates throughout the games to report on their team’s achievements.

The “Frozen” Games will be an all-day event that guests can sign up for when they arrive at the park entrance. All activities are included with regular admission to Blizzard Beach.
