ANE7966464

Construction has begun at Walt Disney World Resort on a brand new “Frozen” attraction at the Norway Pavilion in Epcot. The new attraction, which replaces Maelstrom, will take guests to Arendelle and immerse them in many of their favorite moments and music from the film. The pavilion will also include a royal greeting location where Anna and Elsa can meet guests.

“Frozen’s” popular characters will also have a bigger presence at Magic Kingdom Park this holiday season. In addition to the ongoing character appearances, Queen Elsa will use her powers to transform Cinderella Castle into an ice palace every night starting in early November. And Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party-goers can see Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, and Olaf in Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade.

The theme park is extending some favorite elements of Frozen Summer Fun LIVE!, too, so that guests at Disney’s Hollywood Studios can continue singing along to “Frozen” songs with Queen Elsa and Princess Anna. Wandering Oaken’s will set up shop closer to the show through the holiday season and will feature a larger play area with real snow (in Florida!).

The site will house Super Hero content and activities, including a national photo sweepstakes contest with the support of select national retailers. Marvel will also be re-launching Marvelkids.com to provide even more Super Hero content.

For the inaugural campaign, Marvel has lined up best-in-class retailers, including Walmart, Target, Kmart, Payless, Party City, Amazon and the Disney Store to feature unique ‘Marvel Super Hero September’ promotions, special offers and/or weekly in-store events. These events will include Walmart Retailtainment Day on September 20th, in-store photo contests at Party City stores, and the Kmart flagship store near Madison Square Garden in New York City with media partner Radio Disney. Additionally, Disney Store locations across the U.S. will be hosting a Marvel Super Hero event once a week. Guests can learn how to draw Captain America’s shield and Spider-Man’s mask, as well as participate in a Marvel trivia challenge, Avengers Assemble Showtime and Ultimate Spider-Man Great Power Store Time. All participants will receive a free Marvel Super Hero mask. These retailers will be supported by a robust merchandising program led by Hasbro.

To shine a bright light on the initiative, Marvel will execute a print and online advertising campaign that will appear in the College Football and September NFL Preview issues of ESPN Magazine. These ads will also run on ESPNmagazine.com for the first two weeks of September and help reinforce Marvel’s interest in healthy living and active lifestyles for children. A full page “Guardians of The Galaxy” advertorial detailing announcement promotions and character content will also be featured in Marvel Super Hero Magazine.

Beyond traditional advertising avenues, Hasbro has developed an “in-theater” campaign feature to, highlight its newest products, including Spider-Man and Captain America role play items, and provide a salute to ‘Marvel Super Hero September.’ Additionally, a one page Hasbro ad will be included in Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier Blu-Ray/DVD insert, providing product and campaign details.

‘Marvel Super Hero September’ will take to the airwaves on DisneyXD through a national broadcast campaign, dedicated to the launch of Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man Web-Warriors and the season two premiere of Marvel’s Avengers Assemble animated series.
