BURBANK, Calif. (Nov. 4, 2015) – Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Frozen” ushers in the holidays by wishing all fans a wonderful season, celebrating that “Family Is The Best Gift of All,” through a holiday message, “Frozen”-related television debuts on Disney Channel, new content from Disney Interactive and an exciting photo contest inspired by the “Frozen” family, “Say Freeze!” in which fans will have an opportunity to win a dream vacation for four to experience Frozen Fun at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida!  

“In both ‘Frozen’ and ‘Frozen Fever,’ the concept of family was explored and celebrated. By the end of the feature film, Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven have formed their own unique bond, and there is no better time than the holiday season to remind us that family truly is the best gift of all,” says Oscar®-winning producer, Peter Del Vecho.
