The impact Walt Disney’s animated film Frozen is having on Disney’s bottom line and on tourism within Norway is highlighted. Although Frozen takes place in fictional Arendelle, movie producers incorporated Norwegian inspired scenery, imagery, and culture. Using a bi-lingual survey (English and Norwegian), we analyzed how the movie has increased travel in Norway, who appears to be most influenced to consider Norway as a travel destination, compared attitudes of film audiences in the U.S., Norway, and other countries on a variety of related factors, and provide suggestions concerning marketing connections to the movie Frozen in an attempt to further boost tourism within Norway.
