World of Frozen will be behind Fantasyland. Frozen Ever After is a near clone of the EPCOT attraction, while Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleighs is a new roller-coaster.

The map also lists Golden Crocus Inn, the main restaurant, and Tick Tock Toys & Collectibles, a gift shop.

Though the land doesn’t open until November 20, there have been some media previews. Check out a full POV of Frozen Ever After and the new “Playhouse in the Woods” stage show. Last month, Hong Kong Disneyland released a full list of menu items that will be available at World of Frozen, plus shared photos of the dining and shopping venues, and a nighttime look at the land. Cast Members have mix-and-match costumes for the different areas of the land.

“Frozen” Franchise

The first “Frozen” film premiered at the El Capitan Theatre on November 19, 2013. It was released in U.S. theaters on November 27 and proved to be a huge success for Disney. “Frozen” stars Kristen Bell as Princess Anna and Idina Menzel as Queen Elsa, Anna’s older sister with secret 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 2023 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.”

In 2016, Maelstrom in the Norway Pavilion of EPCOT became Frozen Ever After. The pavilion later added a permanent meet-and-greet space for Anna and Elsa. Now versions of Frozen Ever After are planned for multiple other Disney Parks. Disneyland Paris will open the gates of the Kingdom of Arendelle in late 2025 as part of a major expansion to Walt Disney Studios Park and a “Frozen” area is part of the Fantasy Springs expansion to Tokyo DisneySea, opening in 2024.

“Frozen” is also represented on Disney Cruise Line with Arendelle – A Frozen Dining Adventure on the Disney Wish featuring dinner and a show with “Frozen” characters.
