Disney Parks (@DisneyParks) shared the news on X (formerly known as Twitter), stating that the gates of Arandelle will open for guests of all ages on November 20, 2023, at Hong Kong Disneyland!

JUST REVEALED: The gates will officially open at #WorldofFrozen on November 20, 2023, at Hong Kong Disneyland! There’ll be magic, there’ll be fun, and be sure to tell someone!

World of Frozen was first announced on November 22, 2016, when the Walt Disney Company and the Hong Kong Government announced their plans for the multi-year expansion.

World of Frozen will be home to Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleighs — an all-new roller coaster that will take guests on a journey through Arendelle after they pay a visit to Oaken’s famous store — as well as a version of EPCOT’s Frozen Ever After attraction with significant upgrades. 

Guests visiting World of Frozen will be able to see Elsa’s Ice Palace and the Kingdom of Arendelle with all of its sights, sounds, cuisines, and traditions in a fully immersive experience while having the chance to meet Queens Elsa and Anna.

Hong Kong Disneyland Resort is not the only Disney Park carrying out massive — although divisive — expansion projects. Disneyland Paris is also on its way to creating an all-new expansion inspired by Frozen, though the Parisian Disney resort has not shared any updates on the timeline for this project.

Tokyo Disney Resort is inching closer to opening an all-new immersive area in Tokyo DisneySea that will be home to attractions inspired by Tangled, Peter Panafter going through a “woke” change — and Frozen.
