The 2010s were a hugely successful decade for the Walt Disney Company. The most important Disney movie of this era was Frozen . The film gave us the hit "Let It Go" and inspired goods, imitators and an upcoming sequel. Over the next two years, the world will see the most impressive additions to the Frozen franchise: entire areas dedicated to Frozen in several Disney theme parks.
Disney Parks generally do not base their country on a movie. For example, Fantasyland at Walt Disney World includes rides based on several classic films, including Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs The Little Mermaid and Cinderella . Even Star Wars : Galaxy's Edge is based on the entire Star Wars saga, not on a specific movie in the saga. These new territories, all named Arendelle: World of Frozen, will be new territory for Disney in this regard.
Versions of Arendelle: World of Frozen to be opened in three of Disney's six parks around the world. Arendelle will open in 2021 in Hong Kong Disneyland. Until then, Hong Kong Disneyland will also cover areas related to Marvel superheroes and Moana . Disneyland Paris, formerly known as Euro Disney Resort, will have its own Arendelle in the same year. In 2022 Arendelle will open its doors in the Japanese park Tokyo DisneySea. There will be new rides near the Tokyo version of Arendelle dealing with Peter Pan and Tangled .
What else do we know about Arendelle? After initial reports of the Tokyo version of the attraction, the country will include a fairytale castle housing a Frozen -designed restaurant as well as a film-based ride. Hong Kong's Arendelle will feature several rides as well as restaurants and shopping – especially a replica of Oakens store from the movie. Early conceptual drawings for this version of Arendelle show a toboggan run that resembles the Seven Dwarven Mine Railroad (19459004) located in the Magic Kingdom.
The Other Ride Frozen in Hong Kong Disneyland will be a clone of Frozen Ever After, a popular ride that is currently taking place in Walt Disney World. Hong Kong Disneyland also has an attraction where guests can see Queen Elsa as she unleashes her powers and creates the winter weather in front of her eyes. Details about Paris & Arendelle are relatively sparse. The official blog for the park claims that this addition will have a lake, snow capped mountains, shopping, a new restaurant and a kind of ride.
It is currently unclear whether the three versions of Arendelle are identical or not. Although Disney parks around the world have attractions of the same name, these attractions often vary from park to park.
So far, the Walt Disney Company has announced no plan to found Arendelle in any of the Disney parks in the United States of America. The aforementioned Frozen Ever After ride can be found at Epcot, while both Disney Hollywood Studios in Orlando and Disney California Adventure each include live shows on this movie. We can only hope that Disney Magic allows Arendelle to come to the American Disney Parks.
