Disney Unveils Plans to Add a New ‘Frozen' Land and Marvel Rides in Hong Kong
The Walt Disney Company and Hong Kong government announced plans for a multi-year expansion of Hong Kong Disneyland on Tuesday, which will include new attractions and areas devoted to “Frozen” and Marvel.
The proposed $1.4-billion expansion would begin in 2018 and be completed in 2023, with a Frozen-themed “Land” that will include two attractions based on the film, and a themed dining area in Arendell’s kingdom.
Details are still scarce on the attractions, which will allow “fans of all ages to experience the characters from the popular animated film in ways they never have before at a Disney park,” according to Disney.
Hong Kong Disneyland will also continue to expand its Marvel attractions, starting with the Iron Man Experience coming to the park on January 11.
The new area will have a re-imagined version of the Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters and rides based off of “one of the most popular Marvel franchises.”
Guests will also be able to stop in at Moana’s Village Festival in Adventureland, which will feature a stage show and meet-and-greets with characters from the film.
Finally, the Sleeping Beauty Castle and its surroundings will be completely transformed into what the company refers to as “never-before-seen daytime and nighttime spectaculars” and entertainment venues, which will include a Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, a salon where you can get your very own fairy godmother to pamper you.
The proposed expansion will need approval from the Legislative Council of Hong Kong and the company’s board of directors before it is officially approved.
