It’s Frozen (2013); need I say anything else? The iconic story that took the Disney community by storm in 2013 has become another Disney classic. Walt Disney Animation Studios created the two beloved characters and sisters, Anna and Elsa. Anna sets off on an adventure to find Elsa after she’s trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Along her journey, Anna meets Kristoff, Sven, and Olaf, who help her bring the kingdom back to normal.
The big-screen comedy adventure was such a hit that Disney Parks have now fashioned attractions after the film. In Walt Disney World’s EPCOT, Guests can venture to Norway in the World Showcase to ride Frozen Ever After. Over at Disney California Adventure Park, Guests can meet Anna and Elsa in Hollywood Land for their Royal Welcome. Hong Kong Disneyland quickly added itself to the list of Disney Parks that incorporated Frozen-inspired attractions.
Hong Kong Disneyland has been in the process of creating World of Frozen. It will be the world’s first and largest Frozen-themed land, inspired by Frozen and Frozen 2 (2019). Both films are “two of the most successful animated films in history,” according to The Walt Disney Company. The land will encompass the wondrous world of Arendelle, which is home to Queen Anna and Elsa, along with all of the film’s favorite characters.
Excitingly, the land has finally gotten an opening date, along with new updates on the magical experience coming to Hong Kong Disneyland. World of Frozen will be opening its gates on November 20, 2023.

What to Expect at World of Frozen
Arendelle is coming to life at Hong Kong Disneyland, and there are countless reasons why this needs to be added to your Disney bucket list. Upon visiting the quaint village, Guests will be immersed in what feels like their favorite Frozen films. The land’s scenery offers stunning architecture inspired by Norway’s historical background and Frozen’s magical touch of Elsa’s powers. “By creating a smooth transition of the Lantau mountains in the distance into the design of the North Mountain, not only will this add to the immersive nature of the land, but it also provides a one-of-a-kind experience only found at Hong Kong Disneyland,” Disney Parks Blog details.
Of course, the soundtracks and hit songs of the films will join you on your journey in Arendelle. Additionally, an ice that never melts became a part of the creation of World of Frozen. Imagineers worked diligently for three years to recreate this magic in the Park. “The team analyzed ice textures and colors and how these related to Elsa’s emotions in order to accurately depict her magical powers,” Disney explained.
The two attractions, Frozen Ever After and Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleighs, will take Guests on adventures where advanced all-electric Audio-Animatronics figures bring our favorite characters to life. Watch the trailer below that embodies all things Frozen to put you even more in awe of World of Frozen.
