Frozen at Disney's Hollywood Studios for the summer?

More than Beauty and the Beast? Little Mermaid?
Yeah, my back of a napkin calculations, which could certainly be wrong, have Mermaid in 4 places; meet and greet, parade, ride in fantasy land and attraction at the studios. Beauty and the beast has the stage show, the meet and greet, enchanted tails, (or is that one in the same, not sure) and the restaurant. So it's not like Frozen has 2x anything else, but again, none of those other films just came out.
Again, I'm not making any case for more or less Frozen, just stating that to hear some on the forums, the moment you step on property, you're hit with a snowball.

Once you factor in that BatB and TLM also have a presence in Fantasmic, Philarmagic, and BatB are in the FoF parade (plus probably more that I'm forgetting), Frozen truly isn't the largest presence. Not by a long shot.

They really should of kept the fireworks, outside of the Sing Along I felt this was definitely a keeper.
The probably figured "why bother?" The Osborne lights start little over a month after those fireworks end, at which point DHS is already very popular into the evening for two months. I wonder if they will feel the need to bring back some special fireworks in January to keep people around, though. I would think it very wise to have some sort of winter festival going on as it's one of the few times of year that doesn't have any special event going on.

TSMM might end up being a different type of expansion. The existing attraction could go 100% stand by while the new track would get its own entrance firstly to SS1 and go 100% FP.

I have heard this but it just seems backwards to me. Shouldn't it be 2/3 capacity in the current building FP+, 1/3 capacity in the expansion for standby? I realize, of course, that this is all speculation (about something unprecedented).

Agreed. You could always send standby over to the FP+ (original) load to fill it if FP+ isn't fully utilizing it.

Fireworks are difficult with Spectacle because on some nights, if it's windy, the street needs to be cleared out well in advance of fireworks. Spectacle runs one hour after park close so they would potentially run into guest dissatisfaction that way, too.

So if SS1 falls to a TSMM expansion, then why even have "studios" in the park's name. It will have no hope of ever being a working studio again and have little resemblance to what it was when it opened.

Something like Disney's Hollywood Celebration would work better.

But there hasn't been any chance of it being a working studio for a decade or more, so I don't think removal of SS1 necessitates removing "Studios" if all the previous changes didn't.

People have said that they do and people have said that they don't. It obviously depends on the ride CMs, but they absolutely should be putting standby riders on the FP+ side of POTC if FP+ is not filled. Any CM not doing that is simply not doing their job properly.
Every time I've gone on POTC the FP+ side is full of people, whether or not they're FP+ or standby. I've been sent over there as both FP+ and as a standby rider.

Back on topic, I really wish that they would have kept the Frozen fireworks. I know they're expensive to put on but yet they brought in so many more people to the park in the evening(or atleast it seemed like it) and it was nice to have an additional nighttime spectacular besides Fantasmic. Honestly I wish they could have found some way to keep the processional too. I know the floats are in the Christmas parade but it was just nice having some kind of parade back at DHS. The park really needs it.
