Walt Disney Studios Park has broken ground on its upcoming “Frozen” themed land that will immerse guests in the mythical Kingdom of Arendelle.

Anna, Elsa, and their snowman friend Olaf will have a world of their own at the Walt Disney Studios Park, thanks to hundreds of talented national and international Imagineers, whose varied skills will bring the Kingdom of Arendelle to life.

The experience will begin as guests make their way along a promenade of lush landscaping, themed gardens, and green walkways to the heart of the park, where Elsa’s ice castle will stand atop a 131-foot, snow-covered mountain overlooking a seven-acre lake.

The new promenade will serve as a transition point allowing guests to enter into the Kingdom of Arendelle’s fully immersive environment, and will feature an elegant Art Nouveau-style 250-seat table-service restaurant with panoramic views of the lake.

Once Arendelle’s gates are opened “for the first time in forever” (but with no official opening date yet announced) guests can experience a new outdoor attraction that will take them on a journey with characters from the “Frozen” animated movies.

The village will feature architectural styles inspired by the films, and will include a shop and a restaurant.

Royal meet and greets will take place, too, so that guests can interact with their favorite characters.

“Since its release in 2013, ‘Frozen’ has been one of our guests’ favorite stories,” said David Wilson, vice president of Walt Disney Imagineering Paris. “With the start of the works related to this new area, along with the beautiful lakefront promenade which will lead to it, we are delighted to continue the expansion of Walt Disney Studios Park. We are leveraging all the creativity and expertise of our Walt Disney Imagineering teams – whether in Paris [or] elsewhere – along with local craftsmanship, to bring Arendelle to life. This is bound to be an experience that will make our guests’ hearts melt!”

Other new projects at Walt Disney Studios Park include Avengers Campus (opening in summer 2022) and renovation works at Disneyland Hotel, as the resort continues to expand during Disneyland Paris’s 30th anniversary celebration.

Hello!!! You mention a new “outdoor” attraction? Is it not going to be like the Frozen Ever After ride in Epcot anymore?
