The magic returns in Disney’s Frozen Musical now playing at the Dr. Phillips Center in Orlando. The Broadway show follows the original film and features many song favorites plus a dozen new numbers! Families and children will absolutely love seeing one of their favorite Disney films live on stage!
I was invited as media to cover this event. All opinions are my own.
Disney’s Frozen Musical
As mentioned above the Broadway show is an adaptation of Disney’s Frozen which follows the story of a fearless princess named Anna who sets off on an epic journey—teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff and his loyal reindeer Sven—to find her sister Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls, and a hilarious snowman named Olaf, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom.
Disney’s Frozen Musical would not be complete without sensational special effects that mimic all of Disney’s films. The sets are gorgeous and the costumes are incredible too. But the talent – wow!
Caroline Innerbichler does a fantastic job in her role as Anna. She captures all of princess Anna’s zest and cheerfulness that helps propel the story forward. Her breathtaking vocals and impeccable dance moves make her a triple threat, and the star of the show!
Caroline Bowman plays Anna’s older sister, Queen Elsa, and belts out all of those familiar lyrics from the film that keep the crowd wanting more.
When Michael Haynie walked on stage standing behind an Olaf puppet I was perplexed, but only for a moment. Quickly you are mesmerized by all of Olaf’s familiar charm from the Disney film and Michael puts on one heck of a performance.

There were so many wonderful highlights from Disney’s Frozen Musical that you and your family will adore. Trust me – there is magic up there on that stage!
I appreciated the new songs added to the musical, however, there is one scene I felt was a disconnect and that is at the end of the Hygge song when several of the extras came out in a chorus line in completely nude bodysuits. It was strange, to say the least, and left some of the children around me confused. My 11-year-old asked if they were naked on stage. It just didn’t seem fitting for a family-friendly performance.
Overall Disney’s Frozen Musical is filled with all of the things you love about the film and theater combined!
