The soundstage has been transformed into a winter wonderland with Nordic trees surrounding the whole interior. The ice skating rink is quite large, and ice skates are available for rental. The cost is $10 for 30 minutes of fun on the ice, and includes the use of ice skates, socks and a helmet. Skating sessions are available on a first come, first serve basis each day from park opening to 8 p.m. You might not think about needing to warm up in Florida in summer, but you just might need a cup of hot cocoa after spending some time on the ice or in the snowy play area. Other options available at the trading post include cupcakes featuring those royal sisters Anna and Elsa. You can really keep cool with a Frozen blue raspberry slush as well. Make sure you time your visit to the winter wonderland for the live skating show as well. And, both inside the sound stage, and at the entrance is some fun for the technically-minded. By downloading the free Aurasma application to your phone or tablet, you can be in a photo with characters from the movie.
