Hong Kong Disneyland has released another piece of World of Frozen concept art ahead of the land’s November 2023 opening.
World of Frozen Concept Art
The concept art depicts the village of Arendelle with the palace in the background and Elsa’s ice palace on the North Mountain in the distance. To the right, musicians play and guests dance. Behind them, Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleighs takes guests on a journey past a waterfall. Two boats are docked in the lagoon at the center. More of the village is along the water to the left, with the clock tower (featuring figures of Anna and Elsa) near the palace. The art shows the land at sunset, with light shining through Elsa’s ice palace.
More About World of Frozen
Construction is nearly complete on World of Frozen and it 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.
Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleighs is the first-ever “Frozen” roller-coaster. 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. In June, 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.
Earlier this month, guests saw lights being tested in World of Frozen, illuminating the village, Elsa’s ice palace, the clock tower, and the snowflake fountain in front of the Arendelle palace.
“Frozen” lands are also under construction at Walt Disney Studios Park in Disneyland Paris and Tokyo DisneySea as part of Fantasy Springs.
The first “Frozen” film was released in 2013, proving to be a huge success for Disney. It stars Kristen Bell as Princess Anna and Idina Menzel as Queen Elsa, Anna’s sister with hidden ice powers. After Elsa accidentally reveals her powers, she runs away. Anna, with help from snowman Olaf (Josh Gad) and ice carver Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), pursues Elsa. The film was written by Jennifer Lee from a story by her, Chris Buck, and Shane Morris. Buck and Lee directed “Frozen” with music by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez.
The team returned for “Frozen II,” released in 2019. Set three years later, Elsa hears a strange voice calling her into the Enchanted Forest. She, Anna, Kristoff, and Olaf set out on a journey to find the voice and learn more about Anna and Elsa’s late parents.
CEO Bob Iger announced in February that Disney has “sequels in the works” for “Frozen,” “Toy Story,” and “Zootopia.” He didn’t specifically call the “Frozen” sequel “Frozen III,” but any kind of third “Frozen” film by Walt Disney Animation Studios would be the studio’s first “threequel.”
