Of course, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Frozen was a blockbuster hit when it premiered, with countless families enduring hours upon hours of its most famous song, “Let It Go,” and newer musical numbers from its 2019 sequel Frozen II. As a result, every Disney Park in the world features some Frozen-themed element, from Frozen! Live at the Hyperion at the Disneyland Resort to the Frozen Ever After Ride at Walt Disney World’s EPCOT.

In addition, Walt Disney Imagineering has set out to bring the realm of Frozen to life like never before, allowing Guests to step inside the film’s setting via the Kingdom of Arendelle expansion at Disneyland Paris and World of Frozen, the largest addition to the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort.

In fact, Disney Parks Blog shared an exclusive update today regarding the development of the world’s first Frozen-themed land, promising a true “recreation of the kingdom of Arendelle” ruled by Queens Anna and Elsa, where Guests can interact with beloved characters like Olaf, Sven, and Kristoff as well as the two royals. Moreover, World of Frozen features Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleighs and an improved version of Frozen Ever After, two new attractions sure to delight Frozen fans.

In addition to the family-friendly roller coaster and the popular dark ride, which will include more technologically advanced audio-animatronics figures lacking the unreliable projection-mapped faces found in Florida’s version, the area offers unique merchandise opportunities and a quick-service restaurant. WDI Executive Creative Director Michel Den Dulk revealed that the land is set during a time of peace and prosperity for Arendelle when its residents come together to celebrate Summer Snow Day.
