Olaf’s Summer Cooldown is a new show that is part of Disney World’s Hollywood Studios Frozen Summer Fun celebration. This 10 minute show is a celebration of Olaf’s desire to enjoy all things summer.
Of course, it would seem difficult to offer Olaf’s Summer Cooldown without Olaf, but the 2014 Frozen Summer Fun only had Olaf on a video screen. This year Olaf is live and ready to party. He blinks and sings along with the entire show. All the kids, including my own, where really excited to be so close to the chilliest snowman around. My daughter still wants to know why Walt Disney World can’t have a meet and greet.
Olaf is joined by 4 beautiful dancers in festive summer costumes. I could see my oldest daughter wearing this exact costume to the beach while we were in Hawaii.
Sweet Tea. Olaf has adapted nicely to Central Florida, but the young lady on the left is doing a Shaka, which is distinctly Hawaiian. Oh well, at least it reminds us of summer and sun. I want that umbrella about right now!
So the “In Summer” song was a lot of fun. Then the next few minutes become odd. Instead of watching a show on stage, the host wants this to become a dance party of sorts and encourages us to do the “sprinkler.” I admire the energy and joy the dancers had, but the crowd wasn’t into sprinkling at all.
We are also encouraged to do the “Twist.” I didn’t observe too much twisting that day. It was nearly 100 degrees in the blazing sun, so most people just dreamed of turning Olaf into a slushie. Olaf loves all things hot.
My little girl was the videographer, so take some Bonine and enjoy the video :)
