A Re-Evaluation of Frozen

By Nick

Some of you reading this may be over Frozen. 

I understand. In the opinion of many, it's taken over Walt Disney World.

This takeover happened during a period of time that Barbie and I did not visit the parks, and when we did visit in October, we really didn't feel any of the impacts of this juggernaut on the World, with the exception perhaps of Maelstrom being closed.

Why then am I bringing Frozen up now?

For one, we just re-watched it for the first time since we saw it last year in the theater.

Why did it take so long see it again? We've been waiting for the 3D Blu-ray version to be released in the United States, something Disney has chosen not to do as of yet for some reason. I finally caved and bought the region free version from Amazon UK.


So, why did I give in to what is very possibly a marketing ploy, since I'm guessing there will eventually be a deluxe 3D box set released in the United States that will have an Olaf something or other I'll really want, with a bunch of bonus material, which the region free version lacks, and I'll be shelling yet another $30+ out?

Two things.

First, we are going on another, longer trip to Walt Disney World soon, and we will indeed be entering the "Frozen Zone."

In addition to any and all Frozen activities at Disney's Hollywood Studios, we'll be doing the Frozen Holiday Premium Package, also at that park, which includes reserved seating for the First Time in Forever Sing Along, reserved viewing for the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights, as well as a dessert party, a lithograph and a pin.

Then there is A Frozen Holiday Wish at the Magic Kingdom, where we join Elsa, Anna, Kristoff and Olaf, who have ventured all the way from Arendelle (or Disney's Hollywood Studios at least) to put on a castle show.

Second, we started watching the ABC television program Once Upon a Time. Have you heard of this? Apparently it's very popular within the Disney community. (Yes, this is sarcasm.)
Well, we are Hooked, pun intended. (If you're a fan, you'll get that.)
We just watched the first 3 seasons, and as season 4 is Frozen-centric, we wanted a refresher.

I enjoyed the film even more the second time than the first. It looks amazing in 3D, and it really is the perfect movie for this format. The songs are amazing, it's funny, and the twist is really very clever. Plus, as a bonus, the animated Mickey Mouse short Get a Horse is included, and, again, made for and best viewed in 3D.

I'll be posting photos of the events mentioned above on our Facebook page, on Instagram, and on Twitter, all of which can be accessed from over there on the right side of this page.
