Frozen Premium Package Review

I recently experienced the VIP Frozen Premium package at Disney's Hollywood Studios. This package consists of two parts. The first part is reserved seating for the Frozen "First Time in Forever" Sing-along. The second component is a Frozen-themed dessert party, which includes a limited release Frozen pin and lithograph.

Once I arrived at the park I checked in at the MyMagic+ service center (the former location for Sid Cahuenga's near the front of the park), where I was able to select my show time for the Frozen sing-along, and also receive my lanyard.

The First Time in Forever: A "Frozen" Sing-Along Celebration was held in the Premiere Theater, which had a special entrance on the Streets of America for this package.

I went to this location at my selected time and was led into the theater to the section of reserved seats, located in the first few rows. The theater was perfectly themed -- no detail was left out. They even had icicles around the sound booth:

The sing-along started with Anna, but was hosted by two royal historians of Arendelle, and they added a lot of comedic value to the show:

During the show there were many opportunities to sing along, and if you didn't know the words (although almost everybody did!) they had multiple screens that showed the lyrics:

Kristoff and Elsa also joined the show:

The dessert party takes place from 7 to 8:30 p.m. and is held at the end of the Streets of America in an area that used to be part of the Backlot Tour. The entrance to the area is on the side that faces the restrooms near the Lights, Motors, Action show. A member of my party happened to be in an ECV, and we were having trouble getting to the entrance, so when we explained the situation to a cast member they accommodated us by letting us enter though the other side of the event. While we waited for the event I checked out the Wandering Oaken's Frozen Snowground, where kids could play in the "snow" and there was lots of Frozen merchandise for sale.

Once we were allowed into the party area, we found a wide variety of themed desserts, such as Anna and Elsa cupcakes:

There were lots of other dessert items and drinks, including hot tea and coffee, hot chocolate, bottled water and soda, and specialty alcoholic beverages.

Besides the desserts, the greatest benefit of attending the dessert party is that you get a terrific view of The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights without having to mingle with the crowds, unless you want to:

As is common at Disney events, attendees receive a limited release Frozen pin and litho:

This was the first time in"... well, this is actually the first time that I have ever attended a Disney dessert party. I think that Disney put together a great event that was well-themed, and also gave a great view of the Osborne lights.

I would recommend this event to anyone, especially people who want to view the lights in a less crowded area.

Tickets for this special Frozen Holiday Premium Package can be purchased for $89 per adult and $59 per child, from now until January 4, 2015. Park admission is required, but tax and gratuity are included.

What a difference a couple of days make. I went to this on December 5th and our seating area for the dessert party was in front of the Studio Catering Company and the entrance to the Honey I Shrunk the Kids movie set so we could not sit and see the lights and enjoy the desserts at the same time. You had to leave the dessert area to see the lights. It seemed to me at the time that the area where they put you seemed much better and I told them that in the survey they sent me later, but it seems they had already figured it out. I just felt cheated a bit at the time as we had to choose which to do, but I am glad that they got it right eventually for others.

Maybe I'm wrong, but those historians look like the two that hosted the Star Wars Dance off? Am I wrong? They look like them and I've watched the videos alot. :)

NOTE: They could be...
