Here’s a cool way that Hong Kong Disneyland is using drones; it’s all to built anticipation for its upcoming Frozen-themed land.
Disney this week released drone footage of its “World of Frozen” project, which is an entire themed land that recreates the kingdom of Arendelle, which is the imaginary world in the hit films “Frozen” and “Frozen 2.”
The land will be the world’s first Frozen-themed land, and it’s set to open in the second half of 2023. But for the first time in forever, Disney granted us a glimpse inside the land via drone. Check it out here:
The Hong Kong Disneyland drone video takes you on a tour of the construction site. It shows how the natural landscape of Lantau Mountain behind Hong Kong Disneyland serves as a backdrop. It reveals that most construction around Arendelle village is almost complete, with landmarks including the clock tower, Elsa’s Ice Palace sitting atop the North Mountain and Arendelle Castle.
The World of Frozen at Hong Kong Disneyland will be the park’s largest expansion and the world’s first Frozen-themed land. It’ll house two new attractions: Frozen Ever After and the first-of-its-kind Frozen-themed family-friendly roller coaster Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleighs. There’s also a quick-service restaurant and other merchandise outlets.
This is just one of many instances of the Walt Disney Company leaning big into drones. In January 2023, Disney launched a Marvel-themed drone show at its Walt Disney Studios Park in Paris. The show debuted to rave reviews, which features 500 drones that form a series of lighting sequences themed to the powers of heroic Super Heroes such as Captain America, Captain Marvel, Scarlet Witch and, for the first time at Disneyland Paris, Shang-Chi.
The folks at DLP Dream Plus shared their fan video of the show, which lasts about 7 minutes, here:
