For most families, a trip to Disneyland in California or Walt Disney World in Florida is a special event.
If they’re lucky, they’ll make the trip once a year. Some families spend years saving for a Disney vacation, though. So if you can’t make it to the theme park, the next best option is Disney on Ice.
Disney on Ice is an ice-skating spectacular that’s been touring since beginning in 1981. The show features tons of great Disney characters and music. The best part, though, is that it’s a touring show. So there’s no need to travel and pay for airfare, hotels, and other expensive vacation amenities. More than likely, no matter where you live in the country, a Disney on Ice show is sure to play near you at some point during the year.
Multiple Disney on Ice Shows in Multiple Cities
There are multiple versions of the show on tour this year, with themes such as Worlds of Enchantment, Dare to Dream, Follow Your Heart, Passport to Adventure, and more.
Worlds of Enchantment features Ariel and the cast of The Little Mermaid, the Toy Story gang, and of course, Anna, Elsa, and Olaf from the smash hit Frozen. If ever there was a Disney movie custom-made to be adapted into an ice-skating show, it’s Frozen.
Here’s the official description of Worlds of Enchantment, plus a sneak peek YouTube video:
