(SPOT.ph) For the first time in forever—or ever, the kingdom of Arendelle is opening up its gates. Yep, the opening of World of Frozen at Hong Kong Disneyland is happening soon, and SPOT.ph got the chance to see the new themed land before it officially welcomes the public on November 20. If you want to make the most out of your day with Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, Olaf, and Sven, then you best save this to your bookmarks as we share with you how to get the most out of the Summer Snow Day festivities.
Here's everything you need to know about the new World of Frozen at Hong Kong Disneyland:
The Kingdom of Arendelle
Parkgoers visiting the kingdom of Arendelle can experience Summer Snow Day, a fictional holiday celebrating the love and relationship of the sisters, Anna and Elsa. It is set between the timelines of Frozen and Frozen 2.
Arendelle Village, the area's main hub is inspired by mid-19th century Norway with its Celtic art, Viking traditions, and dragestil style—a mix of Victorian aesthetic and rustic Norwegian design—of architechture. Guests can take in the sights of Lantau Island by heading towards the Bay of Arendelle which gives you a breathtaking view of Arendelle Castle with the North Mountain—the highest point of Arendelle—nestled in the background. You can also head to King Agnarr Bridge, located at the far end of the village, if you want to have a different view of the kingdom.
If you want to see the park's take on the movie's iconic scenes, you can roam around and visit Friendship Fountain (as seen in Frozen), as well as the Clock Square Tower, which was highlighted during the "Love is an Open Door" sequence from the first movie. Bayside Wharf, on the other hand, offers a great view of the castle as well as select sections of the Wandering Oaken's Sliding Sleighs ride.
What are the attractions inside World of Frozen?
World of Frozen is home to two ride attractions and one interactive experience.
Frozen Ever After is a boat ride attraction similar to the mechanism of It's A Small World. Guests are taken on a journey through the North Mountain as well as the chance to see Elsa's Ice Palace. While the ride is family-friendly, it's not suitable for pregnant women.
Thrill-seekers, you might want to give Wandering Oaken's Sliding Sleighs a try. The ride takes you on a exciting journey through Arendelle's forest where uests will be riding coasters based on Oaken's sleighs. A series of twists, turns, and drops will take place, so riders must be at least 95 centimeters or three feet to participate. Expectant mothers are also not allowed on the ride.
Meanwhile, Playhouse in the Woods is a unique theatrical experience featuring Anna, Elsa, and Olaf. Guests are expected to interact with the characters the moment they welcome you into the theater. Be prepared to sing (literally), laugh, and be amazed by the show's ingenious storytelling and visual effects.
What are the food and beverage options inside World of Frozen?
The themed land has one main dining space called the Golden Crocus Inn. The quick-service restaurant is nautical themed and showcases the deep history of its fictional owners with the royal family of Arendelle. The meals are inspired by authentic Norwegian cooking and bring about a homey vibe. A must-try at this establishment is the Innkeeper's Special Braised Lamb Shank (H.K. $238, roughly P1,708)) which is served with rosettes and your choice of soft drink of water.
The restaurant also offers a Kid Meal (H.K. $105, roughly P753) that consists of the Forest Mushroom Pasta with Meatballs Platter and is served with rosettes and a bottle of water.
For dessert, you might want to head to Northern Delights, the upscale neighborhood sweets shop in the village. Here, you can find a variety of specialty desserts and sweets, cookware, cookbooks, and even household items. Be sure to try the Coronation Sundae (H.K. $95, roughly P681), which comes in a souvenir cup that you can take home.
There's also Forest Fare, a small food cart where you can grab different snacks like the Snowflake Churros (H.K. $55, roughly P394), Sausages Platter (H.K. $75, roughly P538), and the Forest Friends Stein with Mango Flavored Shaved Ice (H.K. $85, roughly P610).
Where can you shop inside World of Frozen?
Guests looking to buy souvenirs can head on to Tick Tock Toys & Collectibles. Inside the fictional toy shop, guests can purchase crafted wooden toys, keepsakes, and collectibles that depict their favorite Frozen characters. There are also Nordic-inspired gifts and lifestyle products available for sale.
Also located within the village is Traveling Traders, a merchandise cart said to come from the same indigenous group of people to which Kristoff belongs. Here, guests can purchase various toys, trinkets, and hair accessories that they can wear inside and outside the park. Hair styling services are also available for an additional fee.
