Hong Kong Disneyland opens world’s first ‘Frozen’ amusement park area

Hong Kong Disneyland Resort is opening a recent land inspired by Disney’s blockbuster “Frozen” movie franchise.

The area, called World of Frozen, is ready to open on Nov. 20, 2023.

World of Frozen is a recreation of Arendelle — a fictional village featured within the “Frozen” movies that’s home to the Disney sisters, Elsa and Anna.

The recent land will feature attractions like a “Frozen Ever After” boat ride and a “Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleighs” roller coaster.

“Frozen Ever After is the primary attraction at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort to feature Walt Disney Imagineering’s most advanced, all-electric Audio-Animatronics figures,” based on a press release. These are lifelike robots that may move and talk, and that are present in attractions, similar to Walt Disney World’s Hall of Presidents and Tokyo DisneySea’s Indiana Jones Adventure: Temple of the Crystal Skull.

The company is selling a “First Look at Arendelle” package, which comes with two park tickets and a one-night hotel stay, for $880.

The package, which is offered to overseas visitors, grants entrance to the brand new area from Nov. 4 — greater than two weeks ahead of the official opening date.

A glance into World of Frozen

World of Frozen recreates iconic scenes from the “Frozen” movies, including the the Ice Palace — the situation where Elsa unleashes her icy powers for the primary time — and Arendelle Castle, home of the films’ royal family, based on the press release.

The recent park area is inspired by designs from Norway, from “dragestil” architecture — complete with pointed roofs embellished with dragon heads on the ends — and exterior floral paintings, called rosemaling.

The opening of the brand new themed land is years within the making, a representative from Hong Kong Disneyland told CNBC, starting “with an easy sketch by Michel den Dulk, Executive Creative Director at Walt Disney Imagineering, seven years ago.”
