Disney pop up experience is an annual tradition in Covent Garden. Sadly, we had to survive last year was without theatre shows, so naturally, there was no Disney experience either.

That’s why this year’s pop us is bigger and better than ever because this “is a much-needed dose of fun where guests can enjoy the craft and beauty of our productions.” – said Fiona Pearce, marketing director at Disney Theatrical.

You will see original costumes, props, and puppets from The Lion King, Aladdin, Mary Poppins, Beauty and the Beast, and the highly anticipated upcoming show, Frozen (the musical is launching this August).

There are plenty of photo opportunities to shine on your Insta, interactive games and workshops, PLUS special events not to be missed.
