Who’s ready to travel Into the Unknown? Disney Guests cannot wait for the day they will be transported into the beautiful world of Arendelle at Hong Kong Disneyland.

Arendelle: World of Frozen

The highly anticipated Frozen land, which was first announced in 2016, will be home to a stunning atmosphere, unique attractions, and may even allow Guests to bump into some favorite characters from the record-breaking film.

Construction has been continuing on the land for quite some time now, and thanks to YouTuber, Disney Magical Kingdom Blog, we have an up-close visual on just how far this project has come.

One of the attractions Guests are looking forward to experiencing once the land opens is the Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleighs roller coaster. This ride will take Guests on a journey through Arendelle after they pay a visit to Oaken’s famous store.

During the announcement of the Frozen roller coaster in August at the D23 Expo, Bob Chapek spoke on his excitement of the land, saying: “Soon guests will be able to visit the kingdom of Arendelle with all of its sights, sounds, cuisines, and traditions.”

You can see this attraction beginning to take shape in the YouTube video.

Frozen Ever After

Additionally, Guests will be able to experience an identical version of EPCOT’s Frozen Ever After attraction. In case you aren’t familiar, Disney World describes this attraction as:

Find a seat aboard your boat and let the lapping waters take you through a frozen willow forest.

Soon, you’ll be rubbing shoulders with some “boulders”—a.k.a. Kristoff’s family from Troll Valley—before bracing for the cold.

High up in the icy blue world of the North Mountain, Queen Elsa’s enchanting ice palace awaits. Behold the wonder… and keep an eye out for Anna, Olaf and a few more Frozen friends.

This enchanting “Summer Snow Day” celebration—complete with many of your favorite Frozen tunes—is sure to melt even the coldest hearts!

Though during the YouTube video we couldn’t point out exactly how far construction has come, we do know recently the ride vehicles were spotted arriving at Hong Kong Disneyland so we know the park is actively working on the project.
