Olaf Meet and Greet - Disney's Hollywood Studios
Opened May 4, 2016
Just in time for Summer 2016, guests to Disney's Hollywood Studios will now be able to visit Olaf at the new Celebrity Spotlight, located in the park's Echo Lake district. The sun-loving Olaf, from Disney's blockbuster film, is living his dream "In Summer," chilling on the beach, but ready to give warm hugs to all.
Frozen Games - Disney's Blizzard Beach
May 27 to August 21, 2016
The "Winter Games Committee" has decided that Disney's Blizzard Beach is the perfect spot to host the inaugural "Frozen Games" this summer.
Olaf and Kristoff, stars of the hit Disney animated film "Frozen," will play hosts and head opposing teams in a variety of winter-themed activities throughout each day, including:
- Ice Pail Relays: Teams line up and pass pails of water from one person to the next, as they try to fill a container. The first team to fill their container first is the winner.
- Snowball Toss: Pairs of competitors toss snow-themed water balloons from farther and farther apart. The pair that gets the farthest apart without breaking the water balloon is the winner.
- Ski Pole Limbo: How low can you go? Guests play limbo, using a ski pole as the limbo bar.
- Slide Races: Teams race down one of the signature water slides at Blizzard Beach.
Olaf and Kristoff will take part in opening and closing ceremonies each day by appearing on the Observation Deck near the Summit Plummet attraction.
The "Frozen Games" are an all-day event at Blizzard Beach and begin shortly after the park opens. All activities are included with regular water park admission.
Tip: Waterpark guests that want to participate in the Frozen Games should sign up at the park entrance.

Opened the summer of 2016, guests to the Norway Pavilion within Epcot's World Showcase will be able to sail through the Kingdom of Arendelle on a "Summer Snow Day."
