Highly anticipated new experiences at Disneyland Resort, Disneyland Paris and Hong Kong Disneyland will soon invite guests to become part of a bigger universe filled with epic heroes and adventures, and today we’re sharing a sneak peek! Developed in partnership with Marvel Studios and Marvel Themed Entertainment, these three new areas will champion the next generation of Super Heroes.



Multi-year expansion plans are also underway at Hong Kong Disneyland, including a new themed area that will include an exciting attraction where guests team up with Ant-Man and The Wasp. This new attraction will join the Iron Man Experience, which opened in 2017 and is already the most popular attraction at the resort.

I'm not going to post it here, but there's "new artwork" going around, showing revised artwork of what HKDL'S FROZENland is going to look like. A sleigh-themed coaster has been added to the right side of the original artwork, a sleigh that used to be on the lower left corner, is now replaced with one of Elsa's frozen fountains, and there's an "extra mountain" (looking suspiciously like the Matterhorn!) next to Elsa's Ice Castle....

Hmmm. But.... nowhere are there the words "Concept Art Hong Kong Disneyland" on it, bottom right corner. And there, in those words' place, is another covered "stall," like the one to the left of it on that pathway.

Until there's an official announcement about this, this could be fan art for all we know. :?r

...and EDIT: Universal Japan just announced their newest MINIONS attraction, and darned if the (trackless?) "sleighs" don't look remarkably similar to Disney's FROZENland version, which still look like the Mystic Manor "sleighs" people ride in. <sighs> And it is Hong Kong vs. Osaka... so who Knows? Maybe soon, HKDL will announce something/anything. I hope.

Found the art you mentioned, it could be fan art, but it also seems weird if it is. Because some things that were changed seem odd, like the new hut, and added mountain. Guess we'll know for sure when ever it opens!

I can not find the universal announcement though.

The minion ride sounds like it'll be a ride system like Mater's.

^ I found the posting at tdrexplorer.com - here...

https://tdrexplorer.com/minions-freeze-ray-sliders/

And they posted it from Universal.

^^ I also agree, this new ride could be the turntables one, like Mater at DCA, and Bullseye at Shanghai.

^ 不用客气!
(Bùyòng kèqì!) :mickey:

And by now, every Disney site I know, is reporting on this "New Artwork" of FrozenLand for HKDL.
Nobody is saying it's genuine though, which is good, since nothing new has been announced, just yet.

Is it just me or does the size of the eventually new Marvels Adventure attraction, (map on page.80) taking the place of where Autopia was, vaguely the size of what the Galaxy's Edge Escape (First Order?) attraction show building looks like, size wise? Either in Disneyland or Hollywood Studios?

Meaning, they might be already figuring out how to clone this attraction to other parks, with new themeing (i.e. Iron Man from Star Tours?), etc. And they do have the Marvels rights, there. Which means...maybe this is also what's in store for Disney Studios Paris? The art concept shows an enclosed section where the Stunt Show is, for now. And a Marvel Attraction possibly in that space.

And where their smaller Galaxy's Edge is located, around that lake, they could have the Millennium Falcon attraction in place.

Just observations and future questions. :mickey:

P.S. Has anybody seen progress on the Castle Expansion at all? Just wondering about that, too. I read the new Moana Show Stage in AdventureLand is ready and opening soon, as well.

The castle expansion is said to be done next year (photos from earlier this month show not too much work has been done around the castle just yet).

The new Moana show is said to open this month or the next and the Ant-Man ride sometime this year.
