If you follow Disney World closely, you’ve noticed the increased trend from the company for VIP offers this past year. One of those packages is Disney’s Hollywood Studios Frozen Holiday Premium Package. Disney markets this package for guests at having the opportunity to enjoy a VIP experience of a couple of its popular seasonal attractions at its Hollywood Studios park.
What are the details?
As per Disney, the Frozen Holiday Premium package offers guests VIP premium reserved seating at a show of choice to “For The First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration” as well as an invitation to the new Frozen Dessert party. Access to the dessert party gives the guest premium seating at the end of the Streets of America (near the BackLot Tour track) for viewing the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights and offers desserts as well as speciality drinks – alcoholic and non-alcoholic- to enjoy. Guests also receive a special holiday lithograph and Frozen pin. The dessert party lasts for 90 minutes, but guests can come and go from the party as many times as they wish during the evening.
The price of the Frozen Holiday Premium Package is $89 per adult and $59 per child (age 3-9).
Where is the Frozen Dessert party located?
We ventured over to Hollywood Studios on Sunday to get our first look at the 2014 version of the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights. It’s one of our favorite Christmas decorations at any of the Disney parks as we took alot of pics at the 2013 Osborne Dancing Lights show. The lights were first lit up on Friday, November 7th, which coincided with the first Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom (which we attended). We thought too many people would be seeing the lights on Saturday evening, so we went on Sunday instead.
The Osborne lights always draws a huge crowd, and for good reason. It’s awesome! Over 5 million lights are strung up along the Streets of America and coordinated to Christmas music. Nothing I’ve ever seen can compare.
As we first entered the south end of the Osborne Lights/Streets of America, we needed to use the restroom before we started to make our way deep into the crowd. As Aunesty used the restroom, I noticed all the tables situated on the old track of the Backlot Tour (which has now been retired). Originally, I had forgotten all about the Frozen Holiday Premium Package, but seeing this area made me remember it again. I was able to snap a pic of the backside of the area.
It’s a huge area, much larger than I envisioned when I first heard of the Frozen Dessert party being announced. At that time, I had no idea conceptually how the dessert party would look, how large it would be, or really where it would be located. There appears to be plenty of space for guests to move around as well as tables for guests to utilize, relax, and take in all the lights. I didn’t get a chance to see any of the desserts being offered, but I was able to make out two or so beverage stations for guests to get drinks.
Frozen Holiday Premium Package: hit or miss?
Judging off of just the size of the crowd inside the dessert party, this VIP package for Disney appears to be a hit. I didn’t get a chance to ask anyone about their experience with the package, but it appears this is an easy win for Disney. It’s low cost as they simply need just a few seasonal CM’s to manage and maintain the dessert party area. That part of the Backlot Tour has no use so they’re taking advantage of space for this party.
The dessert party looks like something I’d like to participate in, but not for $89 per adult. That price is just too high for me, but if Disney can get in over 50 guests a few nights a week (there were at least 50 at Sunday’s party) then the company probably feels they have a winner on their hands.
