If you have visited Disney’s Hollywood Studios in the last few years, you’ve undoubtedly noticed the increase in crowds and longer wait times throughout the park since the openings of Toy Story Land and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. The decreased park capacity along with numerous shuttered attractions due to the COVID-19 pandemic have brought these issues to the forefront. Luckily, entertainment is slowly returning to Hollywood Studios to help accommodate and spread out visitors. Earlier this month, “For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration,” pop up celebrity motorcades, and “Disney Junior Play & Dance!” have been added to the line up of fun offerings eager guests can enjoy during their visit to the park.
Disney Parks Blog shared some exciting details…
You can once again join Erik and Aria, the Royal Historians of Arendelle, for their comedic retelling of the unique story of their kingdom, filled with delightful, sing-along moments from Disney’s “Frozen” and special appearances by Anna, Elsa and Kristoff. “For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration” will be the same incredible show guests have loved for the past six years, with some adjustments to staging and audience seating to allow for appropriate physical distancing.
Rolling intermittently throughout the day, you never know when some of your favorite characters might pass by, so have your camera ready! Each celebrity motorcade features stars on the street and others – like Mickey Mouse, Edna Mode or Doc McStuffins – riding in colorful custom convertibles powered by Chevrolet. Mickey and Friends Motorcade highlights Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Pluto and their friends Chip ‘n’ Dale, accompanied by a bouncy musical score inspired by Disney cartoon shorts. The Pixar Pals Motorcade takes the Incredibles, Woody, Buzz Lightyear and others down the avenue, waving to their fans to the beat of the Green Army Drum Corps. And the Disney Junior Stars Motorcade brings favorite TV friends Fancy Nancy, Doc McStuffins and Vampirina to Hollywood Boulevard.
Disney Junior fans are also invited to join the fun at “Disney Junior Play & Dance!” in the Animation Courtyard. Each party performance throughout the day features a dynamic DJ spinning favorite songs from Disney Junior TV shows, plus special onstage appearances by Disney Junior stars such as Mickey Mouse, Vampirina and more.
