It seems there’s always something new happening at Disney, and one of the most exciting announcements earlier this year was that a Frozen-themed land was opening at the Walt Disney Studios Park in Paris and Hong Kong Disneyland. Well, the time has come to officially open up the gates in Hong Kong, because the World of Frozen is here.

Hong Kong Disneyland celebrated the grand opening of the World of Frozen on Nov. 20, and visitors are already talking about just how much the new Frozen-themed land feels like you’re in Arendelle. Content creator Taya Miller (@tayamillerr), who was there for the festivities, tells Elite Daily, “You feel like you are a citizen of Arendelle. It was apparent [being immersive] was a priority.”

Jasmine Paige Moore (@jasminepaigemoore), who was also there for the opening ceremony, gave her followers a tour of Arendelle, which includes two new rides, tons of shops, a Golden Crocus Inn quick-service restaurant that Moore says has four fixed menus, and hidden fire spirits located throughout Arendelle. The content creator says these Frozen details are like hidden Mickeys, and spotting them is a “mini game” to play within the land. If the cold never bothered you anyway, here are some of the details you’ll want to look out for at Hong Kong’s World of Frozen.

Hong Kong Has Disney’s First Ever Frozen Roller Coaster

Hong Kong Disneyland has two attractions as part of the new themed land, and one is Disney’s first ever Frozen roller coaster. Wandering Oaken's Sliding Sleighs is based on Wandering Oaken's Trading Post and Sauna from the Frozen films, and on the ride, you get to journey through Arendelle’s forest.

Guests who went to the D23 Expo in September 2022 got a first look at the ride vehicle that is used for the attraction, which looks just like the sleigh Anna and Kristoff use in the first film. Hong Kong Disneyland also has its own version of the Frozen Ever After attraction, which is currently open at Walt Disney World’s EPCOT in Orlando, Florida as well.

In addition to the new rides, guests can enjoy the Kingdom of Arendelle on their Disneyland day. The first thing you may notice when entering is Arendelle Castle, which you’ll definitely want to get a pic with like you would Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland in California.

After your photo shoot, fully immerse yourself into the world of Frozen with all-new experiences. Miller tells Elite Daily, “World of Frozen took a Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge-approach, as you seem to be existing within the universe of Frozen.” For examples, she notes, “Anna will dance with you, and Elsa will walk around Arendelle, creating a chain of kiddos holding hands.”

You can actually meet your fave Frozen characters at the Playhouse in the Woods after you shop in the village and enjoy Norwegian-inspired food. The new land also has exclusive merch like character headbands to wear instead of your go-to Minnie Mouse ears. Tarah Chieffi shared on Instagram that a special souvenir you can buy in the Frozen land is a postcard to send back home that will even be postmarked from Arendelle.

Overall, there’s a lot to see, and while Hong Kong Disneyland has already opened its gates “for the first time in forever,” guests going to Disneyland Paris and hoping to see the World of Frozen there might need to wait a little bit longer.

ICYMI, Disneyland Paris has undergone some massive changes lately. Walt Disney Studios Park opened its version of Avengers Campus in summer 2022, which is similar to the Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure Park in the U.S. And just a “short walk away from Avengers Campus,” you’ll be able to find the new Kingdom of Arendelle. That means you can go from shooting web slingers with Spider-Man to singing “Let It Go” with Elsa.

The Frozen-themed land will be connected to a Picturesque Promenade, which is also under construction at Walt Disney Studios Park. This promenade will have a gorgeous lake at the center and feature a brand-new table-service restaurant that will offer great views of the water and a chance to meet some fan-favorite Disney characters. At Disney’s 2022 D23 Expo, Josh D'Amaro, the Chairperson of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, announced that this area will also be home to a new Tangled-themed ride.

No dates have been given for when the Kingdom of Arendelle will open at Disneyland Paris, but D’Amaro shared an update in August that construction was still underway on the Frozen-themed land. So, if you’re hoping to see Anna, Elsa, and Olaf soon, Hong Kong might be where you’ll need to go next.
