    12th September 2023 – (Hong Kong) Hong Kong Disneyland is set to enchant visitors with the long-awaited opening of “World of Frozen” on 20th November. This highly anticipated attraction will transport guests into the enchanting world of Arendelle, the beloved hometown of Elsa and Anna. As the world’s first and only Frozen-themed attraction, there is a palpable sense of excitement surrounding its debut.

    Drawing inspiration from the blockbuster movies Frozen and Frozen 2, “World of Frozen” will feature two remarkable highlights: Elsa’s Ice Palace and the iconic Arendelle Castle. With this addition, Hong Kong Disneyland will boast the highest number of castles among all Disney parks worldwide. In addition to these grand structures, visitors will have the opportunity to explore the Town Square and forest area, meticulously recreated to resemble the Oscar-winning animated film.

    The area will offer two new exhilarating rides, including a revamped version of the popular Frozen Ever After ride found at Walt Disney Resort in Orlando. This ride will immerse visitors in the magical experience of Elsa’s Ice Palace during a whimsical Summer Snow Day. The second ride, Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleighs, is a family-friendly roller coaster that will take riders on a scenic journey through the mountains, powered by the lovable characters Olaf and Sven.

    One of the highlights of “World of Frozen” is the Playhouse in the Woods, a charming recreation of Anna and Elsa’s childhood playhouse. Here, visitors can engage in unique play experiences while celebrating the joy of Summer Snow Day. The Golden Crocus Inn will cater to dining needs, offering a variety of delectable options, and Tick Tock Toys & Collectibles will be a haven for enthusiasts seeking keepsakes and merchandise.

    Michael Moriarty, Managing Director of Hong Kong Disneyland, expressed his excitement about the upcoming attraction, stating, “We are thrilled to provide our guests with an enchanting and immersive experience, allowing them to explore the captivating wonders of Arendelle.” Tokyo DisneySea is set to open its own version of the Frozen attraction next spring, while Disneyland Paris will follow suit in 2025.

    In a positive development, Hong Kong Disneyland has expanded its operating hours to six days a week, with hopes of enticing more tourists and locals to visit. Previously, the park was open for only five days due to the impact of the pandemic. This year holds special significance for Walt Disney, as it marks the company’s 100th anniversary, coinciding with the 18th anniversary of Hong Kong Disneyland. As part of the centenary celebrations, beloved Disney characters from various stores will make appearances in a series of events. Additionally, the Walt Disney and Mickey House statue, known as Dream Makers, will be unveiled on October 16, adding to the festivities and commemorating this significant milestone.
