Disney Theatrical Productions’ Frozen, The Lion King, Aladdin, Mary Poppins and Beauty and the Beast are set to take centre stage in London’s Covent Garden with a new pop-up experience.
From 22 July to 30 August, the Disney on Stage Summer Pop-Up Experience will celebrate the multitude of shows Disney are produced for the stage. It will be free to access for fans of all ages.
The experience will be located in the historic Carriage Hall on Floral Street and will see visitors go on an enchanting journey through some of Disney’s most iconic worlds, with new things to see and explore with every step.
First, visitors will travel to early-1900s London with Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s Mary Poppins and witness the delights of Mrs Corry’s Sweet Shop, where they can enjoy some craft activities and discover how to spell the longest word they’ve ever heard.
Guests will experience the magic carpet ride of Aladdin‘s Cave of Wonders, with the chance to pose with the Genie’s Lamp and travel back to a retro era with classic Aladdin arcade games – although there is no magic lamp to be won here!
The tale as old as time continues with Beauty and the Beast, featuring the legendary enchanted rose.
Visitors will then have the opportunity to view iconic masks, puppets and costumes from the Tony Award-winning musical The Lion King, getting a unique behind-the-scenes glimpse into the stunning stagecraft of this much loved production, now in its 22nd year in London.
It’s time to open up the gates on the long-awaited West End premiere of Frozen, where visitors will have the chance to experience the chilly heights of Elsa’s ice palace, and the majestic delights of Arendelle Castle. For a limited time only, there will be the opportunity to see Elsa’s stunning Ice Dress up-close and marvel at this iconic gown, soon to be worn on stage.
Those visiting the Disney on Stage Pop-Up are encouraged to stay and explore everything that Covent Garden has to offer – from a Summer Festival Terrace serving Spritzes, street food and daily live music, to ROH Unlocked, a partnership with the Royal Opera House delighting guests with surprise performances and workshops for all ages to enjoy.
Visitors wanting to dine can enjoy global and independent restaurants, with indoor and outdoor dining available, as well as the very best fashion, beauty and lifestyle stores – plus the nearby Theatre Cafe!
