WestJet revealed on Sunday its newest Disney-themed plane. And to the surprise of no one, it’s a “Frozen” plane.

The Canadian airline transformed a Boeing 737 into a tribute to Olaf, Anna, and Elsa.

According to WestJet, it took the crew 21 days of painters working 24 hours a day to complete the job. The inside is also full of Frozen-themed fun.

According to WestJet, the flights will operate flights throughout their network, not just to Orlando. Guests will also enjoy on-demand Disney entertainment as part of the experience.

More cold, hard facts:

    • The aircraft was painted in Fort Worth, Texas.
    • The paint team included team members from Canada, the United States and Germany. They watched Frozen to get them into the spirit before work began.
    • The job took 21 days of 12-hour rotations involving a constant crew of six painters working 24/7.
    • The crew used 643.5 litres of paint consisting of 23 colours — five for the umbrella alone.
    • Sparkles were added to the paint in sections to add shimmer and shine as the aircraft moves.
    • An airbrush artist was brought in to work on details around the sun, water and castle.
    • The inside of the aircraft has decals and headrest covers that mimic the cold-to-warm (back-to-front) theme on the outside of the aircraft.
    • There are 54 separate overhead bin doors on the aircraft and each has a unique Frozendecal
    • Several dozen bagels were consumed during the painting of this aircraft (there weren’t any doughnut stores nearby). The crew drank more than 100 litres of sweet tea.
    • The aircraft registration is C-GWSV and the tail number is 810.
