Disney released a detailed look at Arendelle Castle back in November 2022. Arendelle: World of Frozen is set to open in the second half of 2023 at Hong Kong Disneyland. It will have its own version of Frozen Ever After, plus two new attractions: Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleighs and Playhouse in the Woods. The former is a roller coaster through the mountains. Arendelle: World of Frozen will also have several shops and restaurants. Concept art, Cast Member costumes, and ride vehicle maquettes for the land were displayed at D23 Expo last year.
