On Anna's birthday, Elsa and Kristoff are determined to give her the best celebration ever, but Elsa's icy powers may put more than just the party at risk.
"Making Today a Perfect Day" shows a few references to songs from the previous film Frozen (2013). Elsa says, "a cold never bothered me anyway" referencing to the hit song "Let It Go"; Anna notices and picks up a sandwich, referencing "Love Is an Open Door"; and Elsa and Anna are seen riding down the hall on a bicycle, referencing "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?". Also, the Snowgies make a boat topple over and fall into the water, like Anna and Hans did in Frozen.
There's a fine line between chaos...
Olaf: ...and a hullabaloo!
The lighting and colors during the tower scene and the party at the castle suggests that the sun is going down. Some sources say that Anna's birthday is on the summer solstice. In Norway, which is the real-life Arendelle, the sun doesn't set for over 24 hours on the summer solstice (hence why it's called "The Land of the Midnight Sun"). However, this is only the case within the Arctic Circle, and we see both day and night in the original film, which would suggest that Arendelle is south of it. The Norwegian town of Arendal (which is the origin of the name Arendelle) is itself south of the Arctic Circle.
During the Disney logo shown at the end, the shooting star that typically flies over the castle is replaced with a snowbie that jumps over the castle, and if you listen carefully you can hear soft chimes playing the tune of "Do You Want To Build A Snowman?", from the movie.
