Walt Disney Co. is embarking on a $1.4 billion expansion of its Hong Kong Disneyland resort, which reported a loss last year, with features that include the first “Frozen” and Marvel-themed lands in its parks.

The six-year construction project, which will begin in 2018, will include two attractions based on the animated film “Frozen” and a related dining area, new rides tied to Marvel’s superheroes as well as entertainment additions to the existing Sleeping Beauty Castle. The park recorded a loss of HK$148 million ($19 million) in the fiscal year ended last October amid a slower Chinese economy and political unrest in Hong Kong. Figures for the latest fiscal year aren’t yet available.
