Disney on Ice is back in Singapore for the March school holidays with a brand new theme – Magical Ice Festival!
Besides the appearance of classic characters from Disney Movies like The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast, there’ll be special appearances from characters of the Academy Award® winning and Number One Animated Feature Film of all time – Disney’s Frozen!
Get ready to be enthralled with an extraordinary line-up of hit songs, memorable scenes and never-before-seen characters.
But before we actually get to the show (March school holidays, please be here already!), here are 10 magical moments behind Disney On Ice to get you all geared up for the show.
1. Disney On Ice was founded in 1981 and has since travelled to over 75 countries and 6 continents
2. The average size of the ice skating surface is 140ft [42m] x 70ft [21m]
3. There are approximately 180 costumes presented at one Disney On Ice show
4. And more than 100 people work on these costumes
5. It takes 18 trucks to transport all production equipment for set-up
6. And it takes between 12-15 hours to set up one Disney On Ice show
7. But just about 4 hours to tear down the entire production
8. Over 80 different colours of paint are used on the 183 props for this production
9. The youngest performer on this year’s show is 19-years-old and the oldest is 44-years-old
10. Each performer may change up to 8 costumes in one show
Now that you have learnt some fun facts about the show itself, it’s time to learn more about the characters who will be appearing.
A) … The two characters who tricked Ariel from The Little Mermaid are named Flotsam and Jetsam,
B) And that Ursula only gave Ariel the ability to walk on land for three days?
C) … The tavern where Flynn and Rapunzel from Tangled met with a bunch of Viking thugs is called The Snuggly Duckling,
D) And that Flynn Rider’s real name is Eugene Fitzherbert?
E) … Belle from The Beauty and The Beast was forbidden to go to the West Wing of the Beast’s castle,
F) And that when Belle left the castle, the Beast gave her a magic mirror to remember him by?
Judging from the fun facts above, I believe we all know who to expect to see at the upcoming Disney on Ice presents Magical Ice Festival.
I’ve mentioned and showed Blake and Nakayla photos from the show and they are beyond excited to see the show! Nakayla can’t wait to experience being in the same place as the Disney characters while Blake is looking forward to the ice skating performances. Haha. Yes, the boy has taken a strong liking towards ice-skating (figure skating?) ever since his own ice-skating experience. Seriously… March school holidays needs to be here now!
