About The Show:

Frozen is the timeless tale of two sisters, pulled apart by a mysterious secret. As one young woman struggles to find her voice and harness her powers within, the other embarks on an epic adventure to bring her family together once and for all. Both are searching for love. They just don't know where to find it.

Running time:

Two and a half hours including one intermission.


  • There is NO ELEVATOR in the St. James Theatre, the mezzanine and balcony levels are only accessible via stairs.
  • Disney recommends this show for children ages 8 (eight) and up.
  • Stage fog is used during the performance.
  • Characters briefly interact with the audience on the Orchestra level.
  • Confetti falls at the end of the show.

"It will give you chills! Amazing special effects, eye-popping costumes and incredible performances.” -NEWSDAY

What makes it autism-friendly:

To create an autism-friendly performance, the show is being performed in a welcoming, supportive environment for individuals on the autism spectrum, with sensory and communication disorders, or learning disabilities. Slight adjustments to lighting and sound will be made for the performance. In each level's lobby there will be a break area staffed by specialists in the field, if anyone needs to leave his or her seats during the show.  A downloadable social narrative (in Word format) with pictures of the theatre and the production will be available on this page, designed to personalize the experience for individuals wishing to prepare for the show. Additional resources for this performance such as a character guide and guide to attending the show will also be available. 

We can make no assurances that this performance will be suitable for everyone with autism. Parents and guardians are solely responsible for their children’s viewing and engagement with the performance.
