Is Disney California Adventure’s “Frozen – Live at the Hyperion” Worth the Time?

It's new, it's hot, and everyone wants a seat.  Being a full scale Broadway-caliber musical, the new Frozen - Live at the Hyperion production that recently opened at Disney's California Adventure Park is a bit of a time investment.   Even with a FastPass, waits will be involved.  And the Frozen musical itself lasts about an hour. So is it worth the valuable park time?

Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity—and even a bit of wizardry—Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and … [Read more...]
