Are you not quite ready to “let it go” just yet? The nightly castle lighting show, that has been a staple of the holiday season at Magic Kingdom, is returning for a limited time. A Frozen Holiday Wish may be a little past the holiday season, but beginning January 3rd, the show will be returning for a another week and a half run at the park. It’s the last hurrah of 2014, and it’s a way to get a little more mileage out of Frozen, before the park turns up the heat on 2015.
The all new show had Frozen characters visiting from Arendelle during the holidays. Of course, this magical kingdom is nothing like Arendelle during the holidays, which is covered in ice and snow. So, Queen Elsa decides to give Cinderella Castle a makeover.

The show is a lot of fun, and puts a new spin on the amazing light show that has been on the castle for a few years now. The castle is covered in 200,000 sparkling white LED lights, and uses some cool firework and special effects to cover the castle instantly in glimmering icicles. The show also features the first appearance of the Olaf walk around character, which is sure to make the kids go nuts.
The show was going to end it’s run at the end of the holiday season, but due to popular demand, it will be back for a limited time beginning January 3rd, and run until January 12th. There will be one show nightly, and it will take place January 3rd at 7p.m. Every night after that, the show will happen at 6:30.
If you’re looking to get a good spot, right in front of the castle, you’ll need to stake out your place about an hour in advanced. The crowd gets very thick, and the strollers get very pushy as showtime gets closer.
If you’re a little sad that the Frozen fun will be over, don’t worry, there’s plenty more happening, with even more on the way.
Anna and Elsa are still doing meet and greets at Princess Fairy Tale Hall at Magic Kingdom daily, and there’s still the Frozen Sing Along at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Let’s not forget Wandering Oakens Trading Post at Hollywood Studios as well.
In 2016 there will also be the all new Frozen attraction, which takes over the Norway Pavilion and Maelstrom at Epcot. Plus, we’re pretty certain there will be some more Frozen surprises throughout the rest of the year, as Frozen will also make an appearance at the Flower and Garden Festival, and other unannounced occasions.
