Recently, Hong Kong Disneyland reopened after a multi-month closure, and now, things are looking good on some of their developing lands.
Hong Kong Disneyland was heavily hit by the pandemic, which resulted in the theme park having to shut down on multiple occasions.
On January 5, we announced that Hong Kong Disneyland would be closing for two weeks starting on January 7 to try and halt the pandemic spread in the area. The closure was only meant to last for 14 days, but the Park then extended that closure for another two weeks after only one week of closure. That closure extended once again through to April 21.
Hong Kong Disneyland Resort is home to Hong Kong Disneyland Park and is located near Penney’s Bay, Lantau Island, Hong Kong. It was also just announced that Hong Kong will suspend for a month transit flights from around 150 countries and territories considered high risk because of the coronavirus, deepening the global financial hub’s isolation.
Hong Kong Disneyland is an incredibly popular Park that brings in millions of Guests each year. After opening in 2005, Guests quickly came to love the theme park as much as Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland Resort! Much like its American counterparts, Hong Kong Disneyland has a ton of Disney Hotels to visit!

- Disney’s Hollywood Hotel
- Disney Explorer’s Lodge
With fireworks (Cherish the Memories) returning to the Castle of Magical Dreams in Fantasyland next year and international travel reopening, there will surely be a lot more tourism in 2022 to Hong Kong Disneyland! Plus, who would not want to check out Arendelle: World of Frozen, a new land with amazing attractions that are currently under construction.
Speaking of Arendelle: World of Frozen, there have been some snowy updates on the various mountains! Of course, Arendelle is not the warmest place in the world (Elsa wouldn’t have it any other way), so when Guests visit, they can expect to be greeted by snowy mountains. HKDL Fantasy
(@hkdlfantasy) recently posted an update of the land on Twitter, sharing that a lot more snow has been added!
At #ArendelleWorldOfFrozen, apart from the snow previously added to the North Mountain, the neighbouring mountains have now also been covered in snow.

They also shared more updates, such as new rock work on the Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleighs attraction.
As for the rock formation of “Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleighs”, a thin layer of cement plaster can be seen on a small portion of the mountain with rock texture crafted.

As of the last update, many expect to see this land welcoming Guests in 2022. That being said, it will be interesting to see if the recent closure affects the projected timeline.
