‘Frozen’ to bring new Disney-themed dining options to theaters and on the big screen
Disney has officially unveiled plans for a new dining option for its upcoming live-action movies.
The animated films Frozen and Maleficent are slated to hit theaters and other theaters in 2021 and 2022, respectively.
The film franchise’s other films, including The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast, and The Lion King, are set to debut in 2022 and 2023, respectively, as well.
Disney says its new dining options will be “gourmet” food that will be served at restaurants, and guests will be able to take home plates of their choice, with prices ranging from $45 to $70 per person.
“Frozen” will be the first live-based animated film in which guests will have a chance to take a bite of their favorite dessert, according to Disney.
Guests will be offered a choice of three choices: ice cream, hot chocolate, or the famous “giant strawberry” served on a platter.
The Frozen franchise is now one of the most profitable in the world, generating more than $4 billion in gross box office and profit for Disney in 2020.
It has grossed more than 6.2 billion tickets worldwide, according the Motion Picture Association of America.
“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for us to offer guests a new and exciting dining experience,” said Disney Chief Operating Officer Kevin McCammon.
“As Disney grows, so does the quality of our dining experience.
We’re excited to bring our dining concept to Disney World Resort.”
Disney says its “gravy train” of new dining experiences will include a menu featuring seasonal, “delicious” offerings, along with more upscale dining options.
Guests can select from a list of restaurants and select a dessert or two from a menu that includes: chocolate chip cookies, ice cream sandwiches, and ice cream cake.
