New and Returning Entertainment

A brand-new “Frozen”-inspired show called “Frozen Holiday Surprise” is also coming to the event.

For the first time in forever, guests will be able to join Elsa, Anna, Olaf, Kristoff, and the Snowgies in front of Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom for “Frozen Holiday Surprise,” a brand new “Frozen”-inspired entertainment experience that will illuminate the castle in a whole new way. This delightful new offering can be seen during regular park hours and during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.

Cinderella Castle was previously lit up with icicle-like lights, called Dream Lights, from 2007 to 2019. In later years, Elsa activated the lights during a short show. Dream Lights is not expected to ever return.

Last year, Cinderella Castle was lit up as a “Beacon of Magic,” part of the 50th anniversary celebration. Watch the holiday “Beacon of Magic” projections in our video below.

Check out our visit to the 2022 party here. Our video of the full show entitled Mickey’s Most Merriest Celebration in front of Cinderella Castle is also available below.
