How to see Hong Kong Disneyland’s new ‘Frozen’ land before it opens to the public

6 October 2023

After years of anticipation from Disney fans around the world, Hong Kong Disneyland‘s World of Frozen land is set to “open up the gates” on Nov. 20. The multiyear expansion project was announced in 2016, and it will not only be the world’s first “Frozen”-themed land but also the largest expansion at Hong Kong Disneyland to date.

World of Frozen has been touted as an immersive journey into the kingdom of Arendelle that celebrates the sights, sounds, cuisines and traditions of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ massively successful “Frozen” and “Frozen 2” films. The land is set during Arendelle’s “Summer Snow Day” celebration, commemorating the day that Anna and Elsa saved the kingdom.

Disney has shared exciting updates along the way, including a family-friendly coaster called Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleighs. On this ride, guests will visit Wandering Oaken’s Trading Post and Sauna before Olaf and Sven help pull their sleigh to the top of a snowy hill and send them soaring down.


World of Frozen will also be home to Hong Kong Disneyland’s version of Frozen Ever After — modeled after an attraction of the same name in Epcot’s Norway pavilion that follows Anna and Elsa through the kingdom of Arendelle. Guests can sing along to their favorite songs from “Frozen” and visit familiar scenes like Elsa’s Ice Castle and the Enchanted Forest.


World of Frozen will also be home to a quick-service restaurant called Golden Crocus Inn, plus themed shops with souvenirs and sweet treats. There will be meet-and-greets with beloved characters from the films as well.

Disney constructed the land in such a way that guests will feel as if they’ve truly stepped into Arendelle. It even integrates the natural beauty of the Lantau Mountains — some of the highest in Hong Kong  — into the land’s scenery.


Guests planning to visit World of Frozen when it opens on Nov. 20 must purchase their tickets in advance and make a theme park reservation via the Hong Kong Disneyland website. They must also comply with current Hong Kong travel requirements for international visitors.

If you “wanna build a snowman” with Anna and Elsa before anyone else, there is a way to see World of Frozen before it opens to the general public. As first reported by CNBC, guests who book a Hong Kong Disneyland ticket and hotel package through travel company Klook can get into the land on Nov. 4.


The “First Look at Arendelle” package costs $880 and includes:

Two one-day general admission tickets to Hong Kong Disneyland
Two wristbands for admission to World of Frozen between 5:30 and 8 p.m. on Nov. 4
Two “Disney Premier Access-8 Attractions” passes for skip-the-line access
A one-night stay in a standard room at the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel
One “Frozen In-Room Celebration” overlay
Two adult breakfast buffets at the hotel’s Enchanted Garden Restaurant

This offer is only available to international tourists visiting Hong Kong, and you must still make a theme park reservation to visit the park.

If you can’t wait until the land officially opens on Nov. 20, there are still ways to get extra time in World of Frozen.

You can purchase an Early Park Entry Pass to get into Hong Kong Disneyland 30 minutes prior to the park’s official opening time on the date of your visit. The Early Park Entry Pass does not include park admission, and you will also need to make a theme park reservation to enter the park.

When the land opens, Frozen Ever After and Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleigh will be open during Early Park Entry.


If you are ready to “let it go” and enter the World of Frozen with Queen Anna, Queen Elsa and all of their friends at Hong Kong Disneyland, you don’t have to wait much longer. And if you want to be one of the first, now you know the magical secrets to getting in early.
