Hong Kong Disneyland has unveiled its eagerly-anticipated latest addition, the World of Frozen, writes Stacey Marcelo.

Scheduled to make its debut in November, this Frozen-themed attraction is a world first and will transport visitors into the heart of Arendelle, the beloved hometown of Elsa and Anna.

The immersive World of Frozen will feature two prominent landmarks, Elsa's Ice Palace and the majestic Arendelle Castle. With this exciting addition, Hong Kong Disneyland will proudly boast the highest number of castles among all Disney parks worldwide. Guests will also have the opportunity to explore the Town Square and the enchanting forest, which were prominently featured in the Oscar-winning animated film.

The World of Frozen is the world's first Frozen-themed land, according to the Hong Kong park’s managing director Michael Moriarty. “World of Frozen will be a defining addition to our world-class attractions that help us win over locals and tourists alike,” he said. Tokyo DisneySea will open its own Frozen-themed attraction next spring while Disneyland Paris will follow suit in 2025.

Inside the World of Frozen, visitors can look forward to three new rides, including a revamped version of the popular Frozen Ever After ride from Walt Disney Resort in Orlando. Another is Wandering Oaken's Sliding Sleighs, a family-friendly roller coaster that will whisk riders through mountainous landscapes. Meanwhile, Playhouse in the Woods promises to be a delightful new ride where guests can immerse themselves in the whimsical world of Frozen.

In a bid to accommodate increased visitor demand, Hong Kong Disneyland has extended its operating days and will open six or seven days a week, according to Moriarty. This expanded opening, coupled with the arrival of the World of Frozen, is expected to attract a greater number of tourists and locals alike.

Moriarty has also announced a slate of exciting new offerings for the second half of 2023. Among the highlights is the reopening of the Disney’s Hollywood Hotel, which is set to welcome guests back with a new-look hotel lobby and two new restaurants starting in mid-July. Another eagerly awaited addition is the Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse statue, 'Dream Makers', which will be unveiled in October.
