European fans will soon get to hang out with Elsa, Anna, and Olaf because Arendelle is coming to Paris!
“Frozen” Land, based on Disney’s successful “Frozen” franchise, is set to open in Disneyland Paris by 2023.
The addition is part of a massive $2.4 billion theme park expansion announced in 2018.
So, what will you find inside “Frozen” Land?
First renderings reveal that the land will be a Scandinavian village centered around a 7.4 acre lake.
The lake will be used for nighttime spectaculars likely firework displays that have entertained fans at parks all around the world and will have “fountains, music, and lights,” along with special effects.
The streets of Arendelle will be adorned with colorful buildings, drawing inspiration from Scandinavian architecture, according to CNN.
A boat ride similar to the “Frozen Ever After” at Walt Disney World’s Epcot will be available, but the press release notes it will feature more show scenes than the original. Fans believe it will incorporate movie scenes from the sequel.
There will also be an impressive replica of Elsa’s ice palace where fans can meet their favorite characters.
To complete the story-book town, a 13-foot snow-capped mountain will tower over and become a backdrop for the land. It’s said to be twice as tall as Sleeping Beauty’s Castle in Disneyland, California, according to AFAR. Guests will not be able to climb or scale the mountain.
"As part of the fully immersive land, guests will see in the distance the snow-capped mountain of Arendelle opposite a magnificent lake, with an attraction that will take them to the centre of the Kingdom," the park said in a 2019 press release.
All that adventure will likely leave visitors famished, and they’ll be able to dine at the 2,100-square foot table service restaurant which is said to serve a mix of “kid-friendly Nordic cuisine and frosted, snow-inspired treats.”
Gift shops offering “Frozen” merchandise will also be sprinkled throughout the land so your little ones can commemorate their magical experience with some souvenirs.
Paris is one of three locations getting a “Frozen” Land -- TokyoDisneySea plans to open one in 2022 while Disneyland in Hong Kong hasn’t announced a date yet.
The “Frozen” sequel, “Frozen 2,” iced out all of its box office competition grossing $1.33 billion worldwide and earning the the title of “highest-grossing animated film.”
