Hong Kong Disneyland unveiled its enchanting Frozen-themed attraction, drawing throngs of eager visitors eager to embark on the magical journey. Inspired by Disney’s immensely popular Frozen animated film, the new park section immerses guests in the captivating landscapes and beloved characters from the movie.
The highlight includes two dazzling new rides—a thrilling roller coaster and a scenic boat ride, both weaving through iconic Frozen scenes. Josh D’Amaro, chairman of Disney Experiences, expressed the significance of the ‘World of Frozen,’ marking Hong Kong Disneyland’s most extensive expansion since its inception in 2005.
This grand opening aligns with Disney’s ambitious $60 billion expansion plan, announced in September, set to unfold across its parks and cruises over the next decade. As international travel resumes for Chinese tourists post-pandemic, the Frozen attraction aims to revolutionize the fortunes of a theme park that has faced financial challenges for years.
Eager Disney fans, some adorned as Frozen characters, queued for hours to be among the first to experience the whimsical Frozen-themed roller coaster. Bryan Darmanic, a Disney enthusiast from California, praised the impeccably designed ‘World of Frozen’ as he and his family became among the inaugural visitors, receiving exclusive souvenirs to commemorate their magical journey.
Winnie Ip, a tourist from Macao, arrived early in anticipation of the ‘World of Frozen’ unveiling, describing the Frozen attractions as nothing short of magnificent. Hong Kong Disneyland has strategically enhanced its offerings to attract more visitors, debuting the captivating Momentous multimedia and fireworks show in June 2022, presented at its enchanting castle on most evenings.
Disney’s global plans include a Zootopia-themed area premiering at Shanghai Disneyland in December, a Fantasy Springs port launching at Tokyo DisneySea next spring, and a Frozen-themed “Kingdom of Arendelle” at Disneyland Paris, slated to open in either 2024 or 2025
