SAKS FIFTH AVENUE and DISNEY Celebrate the Season with Disney’s “FROZEN 2” and a Very Special Unveiling Performance by Idina Menzel
On Monday, November 25, the enchanting 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 iconic holiday windows in collaboration with Disney.

The dazzling holiday 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 extraordinary 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 NYC flagship and entertainment from the Young People’s Chorus of New York City, dancers and characters from “Frozen 2.”

The activation will run from Tuesday, November 26 through Tuesday, December 24. 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.
