Construction is nearly complete on World of Frozen at Hong Kong Disneyland, which will be the first “Frozen”-themed land when it opens later this year.
World of Frozen Construction
Michael Moriarty, Managing Director of Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, shared photos of Imagineers and crew members in the land on Instagram. Some construction materials remain, but it looks like work is wrapping up.
Moriarty wrote, “Look at the beauty behind us! After seven years of hard work, [Hong Kong Disneyland Resort] will soon launch the world’s first and largest Frozen-themed land!”
“Kudos to our Imagineers and Cast,” he continued, “the dream makers behind making it all come alive. It truly demonstrates how creativity and innovation is the cornerstone of all we do at Disney as we deliver our unique brand of exceptional storytelling and experiences that touches people’s hearts, ignites their imaginations, and creates memories that live on from one generation to the next.”
In the background of one image, we can see Anna and Elsa figures on a clock towering over the village.
Façades are just getting a few finishing touches.
We also got a few glimpses of Nordic interiors.
World of Frozen Information
World of Frozen will open this November. It will include its own version of Frozen Ever After, with non-screen faces on the animatronics. Just like the EPCOT version of the attraction, guests will embark on a journey to the North Mountain where Elsa’s Ice Palace awaits as part of the Summer Snow Day celebration.
The first “Frozen”-themed coaster anywhere in the world will be Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleighs. According to the land’s lore, the coaster was built by Wandering Oaken himself. He’s enlisted the help of his buddies Olaf and Sven to power the attraction as they work together to pull the sleds to the top of the lift hill. In May 2023, Disney released a behind-the-scenes video of the ride testing. And last month, they shared a look at the themed queue featuring figures of Sven and Olaf.
The third attraction will be Playhouse in the Woods, an interactive play experience for children to celebrate Summer Snow Day.
Guests will be able to dine at the Golden Crocus Inn, named after the national symbol of Arendelle. This will be the primary dining area for the land, promising a diverse array of cuisine.
Tick Toy Toys & Collectibles is a toy shop operated by a wood carver and his wife. This will be a central merchandise location for toys and keepsakes that include elaborate character carvings.
“Frozen” lands are also under construction at Walt Disney Studios Park in Disneyland Paris and Tokyo DisneySea as part of Fantasy Springs.
