'Frozen' Star Josh Gad Kicks Off Disney Summer Fun
By Ashley Crossan
Frozen star Josh Gad was at Disneyland to melt away the winter months. The voice of Olaf was welcomed by fans and a 9-ton sculpture of the "summer-loving" character he portrays to kick-off the season with Disney Parks.
"There was no way I was going to miss being a part of this craziness," said Gad. The large Olaf sand sculpture welcomes guests on display outside the entrances to Disneyland and Disney California Adventure parks. Fireworks and live entertainment will entertain guests as the parks open with a special, full 24-hour celebration.
Disney Parks is kicking-off summer with a full 24-hour celebration at Disneyland Resort in California and Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. The bi-coastal "Rock Your Disney Side" event runs from 6 a.m. Friday, May 23 through 6 a.m. Saturday, May 24.
In Florida, guests will enjoy nighttime dancing around Cinderella Castle. The "#IncrediblesSuperDanceParty" a nightly feature throughout the summer, will be followed by special screenings of The Incredibles in Tomorrowland.
Attendees are encouraged to dress up as their favorite Disney character. The event features 24-hours jam-packed with entertainment with your favorite heroes, villains, popular shows, and attractions.
