According to Hong Kong Disneyland, the World of Frozen themed zone, which is based on the popular animated films "Frozen" and "Frozen 2," will debut on Nov. 20. And now that it's been two months after the premiere, the first look pictures are being made public.
Visitors can participate in Summer Snow Day, the day Princess Anna from the movie saved Elsa and the kingdom with a selfless act, meet Elsa at her Ice Palace, ride Wandering Oaken's Sliding Sleighs, and interact with the Playhouse in the Woods characters through various attractions in the fictional world of Arendelle. The characters of Anna, Elsa, and Kristoff from the movies are portrayed by completely electric 'Audio-Animatronics' figurines, according to Walt Disney Imagineering.
Visitors to the Disneyland!
Visitors can decorate their faces with dazzling ice-inspired face paint, arrange their hair like Elsa, or don a cloak like Anna. They can even wear clothing with rosemaling patterns.
The North Mountain, the highest point in Arendelle; the Ice Palace, where Elsa first freely uses her icy powers; Arendelle Castle, where the royal family resides; the Bay of Arendelle, where Anna accidentally fell onto a small fishing boat when she first met Prince Hans, the Clock Tower, where Anna danced with Hans, and the Friendship Fountain are all notable locations in the new land.
Facilities in Theme Park!
Additionally, there are new establishments for food and drink and retail. These include Golden Crocus Inn and Bayside Wharf, Forest Fare, Northern Delights, Tick Tock Toys & Collectibles, and Traveling Traders, which are said to be rich in Nordic history and culture. The current growth and extension of the park, according to Michael Moriarty, MD of Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, "includes World of Frozen."
The park has been losing money for the last eight fiscal years and has only turned a profit since launching in 2005. It is jointly owned by the Hong Kong government and the Walt Disney business, with the local authorities having a modest majority interest.
The park operators stated in May that prospects were increasing due to the reopening of Hong Kong's international borders, the lifting the city's strict anti-COVID laws, and the expected launch of The World of Frozen.
Attendance of visitors around a year!
The park works on an atypical financial year from October to September, so the extra property will not improve current year earnings. Additionally, it discloses its numbers around seven months late. The passage of two typhoons in recent weeks has also forced the temporary closure of the park on Lantau Island .
HKDL reported 3.4 million overall visitors from October 2021 to September 2022. The total revenue increased by 31% to HK$2.2 billion ($282 million) for the year. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (or "EBITDA") increased by 11% to a negative HK$861 million. The reduction in net loss to HK$2.1 billion, or a 12% improvement over the prior year, reflected a narrowing of the deficit.
