Disney in 2015 will offer its first cruises to the Norwegian fjords as well as Iceland and the Faroe Islands, the line announced today. Disney says the 1,754-passenger Disney Magic will sail itineraries ranging from 7 to 11 days out of Copenhagen.

In case you were wondering the scope of influence from Frozen...
Let it go... Let it go...
And now, in her exclusive appearance at the Walt Disney Theatre aboard the magical Disney Fantasy, singing her mega hit, the Wickedly Talented..... ADELE NAZEEM!
Edit to correct the spelling of poor Adele's name. It's Dazeem.
I can't even get wrong right...
Just watched Frozen for the first time Friday. It was nice to hear the Let It Go sung on key.
I have to say, I have never witnessed my girls react so strongly to a movie before. To say they love it is a gross understatement. Even as I type, they are playing in their make-shift "frozen castle" in the basement, and brushing up on their own version of Let it Go.
It reminds me of how fanatical I was about Star Wars as a kid.
I can relate. I failed to mention that while my initial viewing was Friday, last night's viewing was my fourth thanks to my three-year-old daughter, who I rarely see without a princess dress on anymore.
And heading to Broadway! You go, Disney.
That's not surprising. All of their best musicals were begging to see the stage, and most of them went there.
I remember the first time I watched Beauty and the Beast (film) and thinking, this would make such a great musical. In fact, it almost felt like a musical that was turned into a film instead of the other way around, especially with the opening number with the townsfolk. Sure enough, in the bonus features of B & B there is a "making of the musical" documentary, and that was exactly how the stage version was born; they had created something ideal for a live performance without intention.
The on-stage visuals with Frozen should be quite a sight to see.Last edited by OhioStater, Wednesday, March 26, 2014 1:56 PM
Anyone wanna build a snowman?
This is an area of the world I'd love to cruise, and my better half is a DCL-or-bust sort of person. This could be great. We did Alaska a few years ago, and even though it was a round-trip (not a one-way), and visits the "wrong" glacier, it was one of the very best vacations I've ever taken.Last edited by Brian Noble, Wednesday, March 26, 2014 3:59 PM
I guess I'm gonna have to sit down and watch this movie.
It's quite good, Tek. I'm not afraid to admit that I actually shed a tear in the theater. I'm a sucker for a great Disney film, and this one is truly great.
We're surprising the girls with the Blu-Ray tonight in about 30 minutes.
EDIT: And now this will be in our player for approximately 60 days.Last edited by OhioStater, Wednesday, March 26, 2014 7:44 PM

I'm glad I'm not the only one.
I just got back from chaperoning a high school marching band trip to Disney. Kids could watch whatever movies they wanted on the bus (subject to bus votes and certain ratings limitations). But they could only watch whatever movies students brought on their bus (with a limited amount of trading at rest stops). Frozen was the only movie watched at least once on every bus. And each bus had at least 2-3 copies of it. Most of the guys on the bus were singing along with the songs as well as pretty much all the girls.
While waiting for Soarin before the fireworks, a family with young kids told us that the line for the Anna and Elsa meet and great in the Norway section of Epcot was 5 hours for at least parts of the day. I find that staggering on multiple levels.
People all around me were singing along with Let it Go as it was projected on the castle at the Magic Kingdom.
They definitely have a lot of potential there.
Frozen's the boops!
I saw it on an airplane and I still managed to be moved by it. I like that the classic prince/princess trope was <spoiler alert> turned on it's head and "true love" turned out to be familial love instead of romantic love. That and some of the singing was ridiculously good, even for a big feature film.
^ Building off your spoiler, I'll add that I liked being *surprised* by a Disney movie for the first time in forever. ;) While I had a flash of an idea that that might be the resolution, I fully expected Kristoff to be the way they'd go. Many things about this film were a refreshing change of pace, and I'm glad that kids (both boys and girls) have taken such a liking to it, despite breaking from ye olde faerie tale narrative.
Thanks for the spoiler alert. I'll come back and read the last two posts after I see the movie.
