They were dressed in the Garb from the areas and had their faces done, the fashions from the areas and performed beautiful costumes. They were all just amazing to watch. It was amazing to watch each set of performers, the audience was filled with all ages and they were all amazed with the entertainment.

The Chef’s were preparing beautiful and amazing dishes during the Chicago Travel And Adventure Expo. There were so many wonderful dishes, they cooked them right in front of the audience, explained how to make the dishes as they were cooking them. The heavenly aroma kept the audience sitting on the edge of their seats. It was an amazing experience to watch them and they were very interactive with the audience as well. I loved that you could learn to make some great dishes and from a professional Chef.

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ all-new short “Frozen Fever,” which welcomes Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf back to the big screen, will open in theaters on March 13, 2015, in front of Disney’s “Cinderella,” a live-action feature inspired by the classic fairy tale.

It is certified triple Platinum, selling more than 3.6 million units. The “Let It Go” film clip from “Frozen” has been viewed over 370 million times on YouTube.
