BREAKING: World of Frozen Opening Date Announced for Hong Kong Disneyland

Disney Parks fans have long anticipated the opening of the new World of Frozen expansion at Hong Kong Disneyland, and they won’t have to wait much longer. Disney announced on the September 8 edition of “Good Morning America” that the “Frozen”-themed land will officially open on November 20, 2023, later confirming the news on the Disney Parks X account.

World of Frozen Expansion at Hong Kong Disneyland

World of Frozen will have its own version of Frozen Ever After, the attraction that replaced Maelstrom at EPCOT in Walt Disney World Resort in 2016. Unlike its EPCOT counterpart, however, the World of Frozen version of the attraction will have non-screen-faced animatronics.

The World of Frozen will feature two additional attractions: Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleighs and Playhouse in the Woods. The former is a roller coaster through the mountains with a themed queue and, according to the land’s lore, was built by Oaken himself, presumably between his shifts at his shop. Playhouse in the Woods is an interactive experience for children to celebrate “Summer Snow Day,” an event being celebrated throughout the entire land.

Arendelle: World of Frozen will also have several shops and restaurants, including the Golden Crocus Inn.

The opening date roughly coincides with the 10th anniversary of “Frozen,” the breakout Walt Disney Animation Studios hit that released on November 27, 2013. The World of Frozen expansion features landmarks from the film such as the North Mountain, Elsa’s Ice Palace, and Arendelle Castle.

Disney teased earlier this week that updates regarding the World of Frozen expansion at Hong Kong Disneyland were coming ahead of this Saturday’s “A Celebration of Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products: Yesterday: Today and Tomorrow” presentation at Destination D23 in Orlando. The company released a video of Anna and Elsa traversing the new land in late August.

Further Hong Kong Disneyland Expansion

This is all part of an expansion that has been in the works for several years. On November 22, 2016, a collaboration between the Walt Disney Company and the Hong Kong Government was unveiled, outlining ambitious plans for a multi-year expansion of Hong Kong Disneyland, with an estimated budget of HK$10.9 billion. This expansion includes exciting additions like the World of Frozen, Stark Expo, and the Castle of Magical Dreams, as well as new attractions and live entertainment. It marks the fourth phase of the park’s growth and is scheduled to unfold between 2018 and 2023.
