Frozen Express

To coincide with the release of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Frozen 2” across China, Shanghai Disney Resort has been transformed into a festive “Frozen” wonderland filled with special seasonal surprises including a “Frozen” castle, the first “snow” in Shanghai, incredible food and beverage offerings, a wide selection of holiday merchandise and festive entertainment.

As part of the “Frozen” transformation, the resort is once again delivering an immersive flight experience to Disney fans with the new Frozen Express, which is the fifth Disney-themed aircraft to join the China Eastern Airlines fleet as part of its partnership with the resort. The new airplane is adorned in a beautiful “Frozen” overlay, featuring Elsa, Anna and Olaf, and on the interior, icy blue colors and “Frozen”-themed imagery invite everyone to step into the unknown this winter. Guests closer to home can enjoy the “Frozen”-themed overlay on select trains on Metro Line 11 — heightening the anticipation for their visit to the resort.

Starting from Friday, Shanghai Disney Resort is immersing guests into a festive “Frozen” wonderland. Each evening at sunset, guests can witness Elsa’s icy magic “freeze” the Enchanted Storybook Castle. The castle will gradually become an ice palace, complete with magical snow flurries and sparkling ice formations. The incredible Frozen Snow Celebration which stunned every guest last winter is returning to Mickey Avenue, enchanting guests with themed music, beautiful projections on the park’s entrance and a truly unforgettable magical “snowfall.”

As any food-fanatic will tell you, no winter season would be complete without warming comfort food and festive feasts for guests to indulge in. In keeping with the “Frozen” theme, this winter guests will delight at the assortment of themed treats around the park, including Elsa-themed sea-salted cheese-flavored ice cream waffle cones, Olaf coconut-pineapple lamingtons, “Frozen”-themed cupcakes, popcorn, churros and cotton candy and more.
