Though we knew there would be some “winter activities” included as part of the Frozen Summer Fun - Live at Disney’s Hollywood Studios event this summer, but this is one activity we didn’t expect to see join the lineup: ice skating! However, this particular activity isn’t included with admission.
Here's what we know about the Frozen ice skating rink...
1. You'll pay to get in
Disney parks confirmed Tuesday that guests who are willing to shell out $10 will be able to skate on an indoor ice-skating rink set up at Wandering Oaken’s Trading Post set up inside Soundstage One. This fee will cover 30 minutes of skating time, as well as rental skates, socks and a helmet to wear.
2. You can bring your own gear
While guests can bring their own skating gear if they so desire, they will still have to pay the $10 fee in order to use the pop-up skating facility. However, there may be an advantage to bringing your own gear if you have it, as Disney cautioned via their blog post that the attraction may close to new skaters intermittently as “Skating availability may be limited to the sizing of skates”.
3. If you get hurt, it'll be on you
As you might expect, guests who want to experience this attraction will have to sign a liability waiver, and anyone under the age of 18 will need a parent or guardian to sign a waiver for them (and accompany them on to the ice).
Though it might seem like a little bit of a pain to pay a little bit extra for this “add on” experience, $10 for rink time is actually not that bad, especially if this rink features real ice (a detail that Disney has not yet confirmed one way or another). Will you be checking out this experience this summer?
