Editor’s Note:
  • October 30, 2014: Let the freezing begin - MuppetVision at DCA will be closing this Sunday. The attraction will then begin a seven week transformation into the Frozen stage show opening with the rest of the Frozen offerings that should debut on Saturday, December 20th. TDA is in no rush to announce their Frozen plans, and they're now planning to wait until after Thanksgiving before they say anything. But the Frozen related closures around Hollywood Land will soon be very noticeable. ×0
