'Frozen' attraction to open at Tokyo Disney Resort

TOKYO -- Oriental Land plans to introduce a large attraction based on the hit film "Frozen" at Tokyo Disney Resort as the main drawing card of a partial renovation of Tokyo Disneyland in 2017.

     The new attraction will be the centerpiece of capital investment plans through fiscal 2023, which are expected to total 500 billion yen ($4.58 billion). The cost of the Frozen attraction has not yet been worked out, but major attractions such as this have cost 10 billion yen to 20 billion yen in the past.

     The castle featured in the animated film will be reproduced, and the attraction will likely let visitors experience scenes from the movie.

     When Tokyo Disneyland's Fantasyland is renovated, the "It's A Small World" attraction is slated to be moved. One leading proposal has the Frozen attraction taking the place of this popular ride. But the new attraction may be set up at Tokyo DisneySea instead.

     With box-office revenues in excess of 25 billion yen, Frozen is on the heels of "Titanic," the second-highest grossing film ever in Japan.
