Wow, five-year-old sister and I are so jealous. We won't be there until next year. Think if the reception to this is well enough they may keep parts of it?

Thanks. Look forward to the answer. That may be a question security has to answer?

You never know? The Symphony in the Stars fireworks were used in May 2013 and were brought back this year for SWW. Villains Unleashed was first a Limited Time Magic event and now it's being brought back in August as a special ticketed event.

Welcome! From your signature, it looks like you have an awesome vacation planned; Trade Winds, Universal and Disney! I have two boys. My oldest thinks it's great for Disney to add this, but if he misses it he won't be upset. My youngest loves Kristoff and Sven and he is so happy to see Kristoff added to the line up! He loves theater and singing so he is very excited about the sing-along. He wants to dress like Kristoff, disneybounding style. We have a few days to work on that! Missyrose gave us some great ideas! But he is mostly excited for the activities inside Soundstage 1.[/QUOTE]

Frozen kind of passed me buy and when my son and I finally went to see it, half way through the film he leant over to me and said "mum, would we have come to see this if we'd known it was about Princesses?" He made me laugh so much. I think the trailers we'd seen only had the snowman and I also didn't realise it was a musical. My two seven year old nieces just love it and I have promised to bring back something Frozen for them. They came with us last year and I just wish my brothers family could come again. It was so much fun. I plan to take them to a Frozen sing a long at the cinema in London, not quite the same but sure it will be a lot if fun.

The trailers with Olaf were deceiving.

I'm glad my dh and ds enjoyed Frozen as much as I did. My youngest takes theater classes and voice lessons. He loves musicals.

The Frozen merchandise seems to go off the shelves quickly. So if you see something you want to get the girls (especially the dolls) be sure to get it then. Sir Mickey's at the MK has a large selection of Frozen merchandise. Though things go out of stock there quickly.

Something for everyone to keep in mind is that, for the duration of this event, TSMM, One Man's Dream and Legend of Capt. Jack Sparrow will close at 8:30pm because of safety issues with fireworks fall out.
Also Great Movie Ride will close at 8pm. On this I'm not completely sure but I think they re-open GMR faster than TSMM because there's less fireworks fall out.
On days that the park closes at 10pm they will not re open.
When the park closes later TSMM and Jack Sparrow will most likely open around 10:20pm to 10:30pm

When you say "close" do they dump the queue, or will you be able to get a ride in if you're in line by 8:30?

Also, do you think that 8:30 close will be moved to 8:00 on nights at the end of August when the fireworks move to 9:15?

We'll probably do the fireworks on our first night, but then do something else the second night...an extra TSM ride would be awesome. I just need to know what time to get into line.

Very interested in checking this all out! Wondering if this has anything to do with why all the park hours were adjusted a week or so ago beginning in July.....maybe to try and even out the demand. Interesting! We are looking forward to it!

Thank you for starting this thread - we are going after August 17 and I had no idea that the fireworks moved to 9:15 PM then.

For all those going in July, have a great trip and I look forward to hearing all about it :-)

Thanks again!

Has there been any word that they will be doing a themed dining event similar to SWW? Or a fireworks party?

Thanks! I knew you'd know which attractions and their times! Adding that to the first post.

Welcome. I hope so too. Though I'm sure many of the cm for this will also be working MNSSHP. So that might make it tricky to extend.

If you are already in line, you are fine. They will stop letting people ride, and usher those exiting to exit towards Star Tours and out towards echo lake.

Yes, when fireworks are earlier, the close times will be earlier.

Welcome. More than likely park hours were adjusted for this new summer event.

You're welcome. Down deep in the comments of the Disney blog those hours were listed. Welcome to the thread. Look forward to hearing about your experience after hours change.

The Disney blog said that announcements from dining and merchandise are soon to come. For sure, I'd expect some food like cupcakes and special beverages to be announced. I'm expecting hot chocolate with different flavors like they had during Christmas at Epcot. Hopefully the hot apple cider with flavors too. I made special trips to World Showcase for the cider with marshmallow. I'd love to see a dessert fireworks and a character meal, but this late in the game, I'm doubtful, but hopeful.
