Come for the ice sculptures; stay for the cold-weather activities. This year, the festival's kicking things up a notch with extra-fun activities for the kids. Children will have a blast at the Disney On Ice Kidz Zone featuring Frozen-themed fun like a bounce house (complete with a slide!), face-painting, and an inflatable Olaf the snowman. The little ones can even meet real-life princesses! Kids can explore their artsy side with crafts and warm up with hot cocoa from Macaroni Kid.
