Disney Parks Frozen Christmas Celebration

Disney’s annual Christmas Day special has been a tradition for families for 31 years, and this year the broadcast has a bit of a change as it celebrates “Frozen”.

The Disney Parks Frozen Christmas Celebration is taped in advance of its airing on Dec. 25, Christmas Day, with the portions here at Walt Disney World filmed Dec. 6-9, 2014. We were there on the 8th to see some performances on the castle stage and have a recap below.

During this filming day, the drizzle/light rain was on and off all day, which kept things pretty wet and delayed some performances.

With the drizzle and wind making things a little chilly, cast members were walking around selling hot chocolate to audience members.

The final performance of the day belonged to Prince Royce, singing “Feliz Navidad”.

There was supposed to also be a performance by Alex & Sierra, winners of season 3 of The X Factor, but the constant delays due to the rain pushed their performance to Dec. 9, which will also include the parade portion of the taping. Stay tuned to our blog for a look at that day’s events.

Below you can watch our highlights from all the castle performances, as well as a look at a performance of “In Summer” from Dec. 7:
