And yet they have not added any of the songs from the sequel considering how long it's been since it's release.

The Frozen Sing Along show is great and it’s even better when they play the holiday version. They have space at the Voyage of the Little Mermaid to do something with Encanto. That whole Animation Courtyard is a massive skip at this point.

An Encanto Sing Along would be much better now in it's place.. And then there's the purist thinking Frozen is better to hear "let it go" rather than "We don't talk about Bruno."

Just a reminder if you're heading to Hollywoods Studios in January - the Frozen Sing-Along will be closed for refurbishment January 9-27.

I believe that theater got an update between the American Idol Experience and Frozen moving in. That took place in 2015, so it's not inconceivable that it needs a general maintenance update.

But Disney as a company is still Disney as a company... So why are they even bothering? :)

But those shows aren't based on Frozen, ergo, they're not as high a priority.

Really? That theater is the last theater that needs new carpeting and seats... It looked fine. Lets get some new carpeting and seats in the Muppets theater... New seating in the Nemo theater... and add some backs to the Lion King and bird show theaters..

The official website is still showing Aug. 22-Sept. 9. Any details or new dates to share?

I think having BATB in that theater is a total loss.... Disney could do a "Mickey and the Magical Map" style show and do one of those huge collage style performances... It could be a show that is consistently refreshed by replacing simply just one scene every couple of years with a new IP. It is a no-brainer. Incorporate Princess & the Frog, Tangled, Encanto, Aladdin, Ect. There is so much to work with for a collage-style show. This is why I wish the Main Street theatre wasn't scrapped... Imagine what they could do with that. They could host a variety of different shows in one stage space on different days, similar to what they do on the Disney Cruise Line.
