In 2018, Disneyland Paris announced that there would be a $2.4 billion, multi-year expansion coming. Part of that expansion would include a Star Wars land (Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge), an area for the Marvel Universe (Avengers Campus), and a new fully immersive Frozen land. Disneyland Paris includes Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park, where this new Frozen land will be. There hasn’t been too much more information revealed, but here’s what we know so far.
What to Expect at Disneyland Paris Frozen Land
Disneyland Paris’s Frozen Land was originally slated to start gradually rolling out in phases starting in 2021 with its full debut in 2023. In 2020, the world as we all knew stopped including the theme park industry which halted construction for this Arendelle replica. Unfortunately, over the last year, Disneyland Paris has been experiencing on and off temporary closures. It is expected to reopen again in 2021, but it is “into the unknown” when it comes to the timeline for the phased debut of Frozen-themed land.
Fret not Frozen fans, because our favorite characters from the beloved franchise will be there to greet us at the European Disney Park before we know it! Before Disneyland Paris closed in 2020, there was a Frozen Celebration, and as the event was not able to run its course, it may come back until parts of Frozen land can be debuted.
The festivities will include a dazzling new show four times a day on the parade route starring Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven with incredible dancers and acrobats along with an enchanting new float! Characters from Arendelle will also take part in the Disney Stars on Parade with a “Frozen”-inspired float. During the evenings, the magical adventures of Anna and Elsa will come to life during Disney Illuminations.
To top it off, guests indulge in exclusive treats and drinks and shop a wide range of souvenirs celebrating the adventures of Anna, Elsa and their friends.
Along with being in a new, fully immersive land with new attractions, there are expected to be gift shops where you will find Frozen merchandise to purchase as souvenirs and a restaurant where you can indulge in delicious food once they open up the gates! So, make sure you pack a little extra spending money when you visit the icy mountains of Arendelle.
Planned Layout of Disneyland Paris Frozen Land
Inspired by the Frozen films, Arendelle’s fjord will welcome Guests to the home of Princess Anna, now Queen Anna, Queen Elsa, Olaf, Kristoff, Sven, and other Frozen friends. Accompanied by a snow-capped mountain is Elsa’s ice palace and the kingdom of Arendelle. Disney Parks Blog released the concept art for this new area, and with Outsidears, we’re able to see the blueprints for Frozen Land.
Connue aujourd'hui sous le nom de "Frozen Land", cette nouvelle zone se composera d'une attraction aquatique, soeur de celle en construction à Hong Kong Disneyland, de deux boutiques ainsi que d'un restaurant et un lieu de rencontres avec les deux reines d'Arendelle. #Insidears pic.twitter.com/HGb4PgbW8g

From what we know, there is currently set to be one new restaurant coming to Disneyland Paris’s Walt Disney Studios Park along with the gift shops. The new land will be home to a great view of the restaurant as it is surrounded by a magnificent lake as a replica of the port of Arendelle.
Disneyland Paris hasn’t unveiled all the new attractions for this expansion, but we know of at least one ride, a meeting place to say hello to your favorite Frozen characters, and other experiences like possibly a nighttime spectacular is to be expected. In 2019, Disneyland Paris debuted an interactive adventure named Frozen: A Musical Invitation at Animation Celebration.
Walt Disney World currently has an aquatic attraction located in EPCOT’s Norway Pavilion where Guests take a boat journey on Frozen Ever After to Elsa’s ice palace and a meet and greet with Anna and Elsa. Soon Hong Kong Disneyland will also be getting a new attraction in the form of a Frozen-themed roller coaster! It’s called Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleighs and it will be very similar to the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World.
Rides at Disneyland Paris Frozen Land
There has said to be a new attraction coming to the Frozen land that will be a similar version of the EPCOT Frozen Ever After attraction. If you have not been able to experience the EPCOT version, here is Disney’s description for Frozen Ever After.
