On Monday, November 25th, the world of Disney’s Frozen 2, which is now playing in theatres nationwide, came to life at Saks Fifth Avenue with the debut of its holiday windows in collaboration with Disney.

The windows were unveiled with a special musical performance by Idina Menzel, who is the voice of Elsa and also this year’s Saks Holiday Book cover star. Saks’s center six windows on Fifth Avenue each depicted Elsa’s journey to discovering her own power as she navigates her way through the four spirits of nature- wind, fire, water, and earth. Adored characters, Olaf, Kristoff, and Anna also appeared throughout the vignettes as they championed Elsa along the way.

The production also included a theatrical light show on the façade of the Saks Fifth Avenue’s NYC flagship and entertainment from the Young People’s Chorus of New York City, dancers, and characters from Frozen 2.

In addition to offering exclusive holiday products inspired by the film, Saks will also host an immersive activation on the ninth floor of its flagship store, Disney’s Frozen 2 Enchanted Forest Experience at Saks where visitors will be transported to the magical world of Frozen 2 and experience Elsa’s journey through the enchanted forest, encountering the four spirits of nature and other beloved characters along the way. The activation will run from Tuesday, November 26th through Tuesday, December 24th. Saks will donate $5 from the sale of each ticket to New York-Presbyterian Phyllis and David Komansky Children’s Hospital. Information on how to attend the experience can be found here.

The window animation and light show will continue throughout the holiday season until January 2nd.
