This fanfare production features more than 50 unforgettable Disney stars, a sing-along score of melodious masterpieces, stunning choreography, beautiful costumes, and intricate sets. Audiences will travel to the heart of Africa with Disney’s “The Lion King,” come along for an adventure in friendship with the gang from Disney/Pixar’s “Toy Story,” and watch in amazement as Belle breaks the Beast’s curse in the tale of “Beauty and the Beast.” Fans will enter the magical kingdom of Arendelle from Disney’s “Frozen” and journey up the North Mountain with hilarious snowman Olaf and rugged mountain man Kristoff as they help royal sisters Anna and Elsa discover that true love conquers all.

“This particular production is by far the largest Disney on Ice show we currently have touring, bringing together everyone’s favorite Disney characters from Snow White, Mickey Mouse, and Minnie Mouse to Elsa and Anna,” producer Nicole Feld said. “Our vision is for audiences everywhere to dance and sing along to their favorite Disney songs, so we’ve included 30 tunes that they know and love.”

This year’s Disney on Ice production celebrates the diversity, inspiration, and excitement of characters from 14 Disney stories. Audiences will find themselves dancing out of their seats as a collection of Disney melodies like “Hakuna Matata,” “You’ve Got a Friend in Me,” and “Let It Go” fills the arena. Fans can rock out with Squirt and his rambunctious turtle friends from Disney/Pixar’s “Finding Dory” with the original song “Turtle Rock” and fall in love with a musical montage of dazzling prince and princess pairs skating to “At Last I See the Light,” “A Whole New World,” and more.

To put together a captivating show with a cavalcade of Disney characters, the father/daughter producing duo of Kenneth Feld and Nicole Feld called on the best and brightest in the business. With director Patty Vincent leading the way and a creative team of choreographers and designers, Disney on Ice celebrating “100 Years of Magic” is sure to be a timeless favorite among all Disney fans.

“This is a show, more than any other, that is truly for everybody,” producer Kenneth Feld said. “When I sit with the audience, I see those that are grandparents, like I am, enjoying a lot of the classic Disney stories, while young kids and young parents really respond to modern-day favorites like ‘Frozen.’”
