World of Frozen - the world’s first full-themed Frozen land - has finally opened its doors at Hong Kong Disneyland.

Based on the hit Disney IP, the land of Arendelle contains attractions that have “taken immersive storytelling to the next level”, according to Disney.

Two main attractions feature in the new area - The Intamin-manufactured Frozen Ever After and a Vekoma-manufactured family-friendly rollercoaster - Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleighs.

First debuting at Epcot in Florida, Frozen Ever After is a musical slow-moving boat dark ride, with the attraction featuring scenes from Frozen, as well as the 2015 animated short Frozen Fever. The version at Hong Kong Disneyland is the second of its kind to open, with further versions coming to Tokyo DisneySea in June next year and at the Walt Disney Studios Park in the second half of 2025.

Meanwhile, Wandering Oaken's Sliding Sleighs is a steel family rollercoaster - the first to ever have a Frozen theme - and is similar in style to the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train ride.

Exploring the themed land, guests are able to participate in Summer Snow Day - the event that saw Princess Anna save Elsa and the kingdom with an act of love. In addition, visitors can meet Elsa in her Ice Palace and enjoy an interactive play experience with the characters at Playhouse in the Woods. Nordic cuisine is also on the menu, as are exclusive Frozen-themed retail offerings.



“World of Frozen represents Hong Kong Disneyland’s largest and boldest expansion since it opened in 2005,” said Josh D'Amaro, chairman of Disney Experiences.

“Our theme parks always grow and evolve with new stories and experiences, and it is exciting to make all these new worlds come to life for our guests. As Walt Disney said, ‘Disneyland will never be completed as long as there is imagination left in the world.’ At Disney Experiences, the possibilities are endless.”

D’Amaro officiated the land’s opening ceremony alongside Paul Chan, financial secretary of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, as well as Frozen’s Queen Anna and Elsa.

“I am thrilled to see how the kingdom of Arendelle has come to real life. Visitors to Hong Kong Disneyland can now physically immerse themselves in scenes once only featured in animation,” said Chan. “I am confident that the opening of the World of Frozen is a defining moment to elevate Hong Kong Disneyland to a whole new level, and to attract more tourists to embark on journeys to Hong Kong.”
