There are many perks of going on a Disney Cruise, from impeccable service to delicious food, but by far the highlight is being on their beautiful private island in the Bahamas. On Castaway Cay, there’s a special treat for fans of Disney’s Frozen: Olaf has set up shop and he’s ready to do whatever snow does in summer!
Olaf’s Summertime Freeze is a Frozen-inspired drink stand designed to be magical snowman’s dream come to life. The beach hut is a wintery oasis among the tropics. Surrounded by tropical trees and plants, it’s decorated with crates of supplies marked as beach accessories, Arrendale berries, and even carrots, most likely for reindeer who happen to be roaming the beaches of the Bahamas. Exterior walls are hung with signs for Wandering Oaken’s Trading Post and Sauna, as well as photos of Olaf having the most exciting vacation a snowman can have in summer. “Ice cold ice” supplies surround a permanent Olaf photo opp on the pedestrian path.
The temperatures in the Bahamas are usually around 85 degrees, so the frozen slushes and eats are welcome refreshment. Drinks can be served up in specialty Olaf sippers and have fun Frozen-inspired names like Warm Hugs: a tasty mochaccino with fresh strawberry, coconut cream and vanilla ice cream, and Worth Melting For: a blend of fresh passion fruit, pina colada and blue curacaco. The Let It Go drink, made of strawberry, mango puree and orange juice, is sure to make you break out in song once you get out of the tropical heat and get a taste of the frosty treat.
