This year is the seventh year that Disney On Ice will be in South Africa, and whether you’ve been enchanted by the spectacle before, or if this will be your first time hanging out with the Disney gang, here’s why you should be buying tickets for you and your little ones right now.
If you’ve never been to Disney On Ice before…
There’s something undeniably impressive about the performances from the cast of Disney On Ice. Hailing from all over the world, these ice-skating champs glide, jump, and flip into your heart with moves that will keep it racing. It’s a sport that seldom gets the credit it deserves, and you’re bound to be impressed by the sheer strength and skill of the skaters, even if you’ve never interacted much with it before.
This, of course, also comes hand in hand with the magic that you’d expect from Disney, and it’s incredible to see some of its biggest stars brought to life on the ice – especially for your little ones.
If you’re a Disney On Ice regular…
While Disney’s female stars have always been central to the performance, this year’s show, Disney On Ice presents Dream Big, packs more girl power than ever before. Lead by Tinkerbell, the show brings the lives of some of the magic brand’s biggest princesses to life, including Ariel, Belle, Cinderella, Rapunzel, Tiana, Jasmine, Aurora and Snow White, as well as Frozen’s Elsa and Anna. “Before dreaming up this show, we reflected on what makes Disney’s leading ladies so unique,” says producer Kenneth Feld.
“Having three daughters, it didn’t take long to realise that every princess had one thing in common: each one had a dream and the determination to make it a reality. We wanted to share that inspirational message with our audiences by celebrating the stories of these courageous young women and the friends that helped them along the way.”
Sons or daughters, young or old, grab your favourite people and head out together to enjoy a brilliant winter day out at Disney On Ice presents Dream Big, running from Friday, 22 June, until Sunday, 1 July, at the Ticketpro Dome.
