Hong Kong Disneyland Resort is getting ready for the opening of World of Frozen, the world’s first and largest Frozen-themed land, on Nov. 20. It was inspired by the Walt Disney Animation Studios’ films Frozen, one of the biggest animated films of all time. World of Frozen will transport guests to the cinematic and living land of Arendelle.
Here’s what to expect.


Guests will be able to experience the iconic scenes and locations coming to life.  Some of the World’s signature spots include the North Mountain, with its peak as the highest point in Arendelle; the Ice Palace where Elsa unleashes her icy powers freely for the first time; Arendelle Castle, home of the royal family; the Bay of Arendelle, featuring the small fishing boat that Anna fell on when she met Prince Hans; Clock Tower where Anna danced with Prince Hans; and Friendship Fountain where Elsa uses her magical powers to freeze its water into beautiful snowflake ornamentations.


Your little prince and princesses can celebrate Summer Snow Day. Summer Snow Day commemorates the day that Anna saved Elsa and the kingdom with an act of true love. Guests can immerse themselves in Summer Snow Day celebration by taking a Frozen Ever After journey to meet Elsa at her Ice Palace that is open to all for the first time, embarking on a wondrous adventure on Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleighs, and enjoying a unique interactive play experience with Anna and Elsa at Playhouse in the Woods. To prepare for the Summer Snow Day celebration, little kids can dress up for the occasion with rosemaling patterned clothes, add glittering ice-inspired face paint, and style their hair like Elsa or wear a cape like Anna.

The World is seven years in the making!  

“This idea started as a sketch seven years ago and has since transformed into a beautiful land that will enchant guests with magical experiences,” says Michel Den Dulk, executive creative director at Walt Disney Imagineering.

 “The collaborative efforts across disciplines have made World of Frozen a reality, creating unforgettable memories that will last for a lifetime.” Disney Imagineers spent over three years in concept and design, working in partnership with artists and storytellers from Walt Disney Animation Studios, to accurately depict cinematic features in World of Frozen. The team analyzed ice textures, colors, and how these relate to Elsa’s emotions to recreate her Ice Magic. Attention was paid to every detail, including various forms of ice and snow, and different materials were studied and experimented to truly represent the Ice Palace and icy ornaments.


The world perfectly blends the unique natural landscape of Hong Kong. 

World of Frozen seamlessly integrates with Lantau Island’s natural landscape and the design of North Mountain, providing guests with expansive views of both. The seamless transition between artificial landforms and natural surroundings embraces guests entirely in World of Frozen.

It’s also a mini trip to Norway. 

The World integrates inspiration from Norway to create a must-visit travel destination. The scenery, architectural design, clothing, and cuisine are all infused with rich Norwegian elements, including “dragestil” (dragon style) architectural style, Balestrand’s asymmetrical architecture, and rosemaling floral decorative paintings.


You’ll see the characters in real life, thanks to advanced technology. Frozen Ever After at Hong Kong Disneyland features Walt Disney Imagineering’s most advanced, fully-electric Audio-Animatronics figures, which bring to life characters like Anna, Elsa, and Kristoff with amazing realism.

“Bringing our characters to life, featuring our unique, state-of-the-art Audio-Animatronics figures, is a thrilling aspect of this project,” says Amanda Chiu, senior producer at Walt Disney Imagineering Asia. “It is a great testament to the amazing talents at Walt Disney Imagineering who made the impossible possible. We share the same goal with Walt Disney Animation Studios to create incredible entertainment for people of all ages, using innovative technology to tell a compelling, heartfelt story like never before.”
