‘Let it Go!’ Disney Frozen Sing-a-Long at El Capitan Theatre

We attended as a guest of Disney


Do you have a Frozen fan at home?   You’re probably laughing because you have the mega fan that wakes up singing Do you want to Build a Snowman or Let it Go.  As a mother to a 6 year old girl my iPhone has the movie soundtrack and we often listen to it (by often I meant it’s on repeat).


Last April we missed the Frozen sing-a-long at El Capitan so when I heard it was coming back for an encore engagement it was a no brainer that we were going.  If you haven’t been to the El Capitan then you must take the trek up to Hollywood and experience it.


The El Capitan has movies and sing-a-longs all year round, next one up is Tangled which runs September 12 – October 8.  Here is my advice for your El Capitan experience. Buy your tickets in advance, the shows are really popular and sell out quickly.


That being said you are advised to come 30 minutes before the show, that’s no joke the lines to get in are long (two lines, one on each side VIP & General).  Luckily you have many familiar names on Hollywood Walk of Frame Stars to see and keep you busy.


El Capitan has a parking agreement with The Hollywood and Highland Center allowing theater guests 3 free hours of parking we stayed over 3 hours and paid $2 and for LA that’s a steal.   When you purchase tickets get the VIP ones, they include popcorn in an El Capitan keepsake bucket, a bottled drink and preselected prime seating.


The theatre is a fully restored movie palace, elaborately decorated, transporting you to a time when Hollywood was all about glitz and beauty.  The theater’s VIP seating is downstairs and general seating, which is first come first serve, is upstairs in the balcony.


The Frozen experience started off with Elsa on stage greeting the audience and then making it snow inside the theater.  Yup it snowed, parents and children squealed in excitement.  I’m not sure if it snowed in the balcony but I’m pretty sure Disney magic wouldn’t skip the guests in the balcony.


Once Elsa departed the theater manager came out and let everyone know that they are expected to sing, have a great time and most of all be loud; which is something you never hear from theater staff members at other theaters.  As the movie plays, you can see the Frozen dressed girls on the edge of their seats waiting for their queue to sing.


If you don’t know the words (there are a few people out there that don’t), don’t worry the lyrics are printed on the bottom of the screen similar to closed captions.  Once the movie ended my kids both asked to come to the next event there.  It’s such a special experience and I know that I will be coming again and again.
