Get your mouse ears ready! Characters from beloved Disney movies will come together for an ultimate ice skating show this 25 December until 9 January 2019 at the Mall of Asia Arena.
This annual production, produced by Feld Entertainment and SM Lifestyle Entertainment, will honor the 90th anniversary of Disney’s true and lovable icon, Mickey Mouse.
“Disney on Ice” has worked its way into the hearts of every Filipino since its launch in the 1990s. Now, it is making a grand comeback, bringing along characters from Moana and Inside Out.
For the opening, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy will join Mickey for a production inspired by the film that started it all, Steamboat Willie. Together with his pals, Mickey will take on an exciting ice adventure to determine his friend’s favorite memory out of all the Disney tales.
“We have seen the steady growth not just in sales, but also in audience engagement. Mall of Asia Arena has brought the show an average of 100,000 event attendees every year for a 12-day run. And now, we are happy to announce that we have officially increased to 21 shows for 2018,” Herman Medina, chief operations officer for SM Lifestyle and Entertainment, said.
“Disney on Ice Mickey’s Super Celebration” was carefully created to encourage families to take on any adventure just like the character of Moana, who bravely embarked on a high-seas adventure while trying to save her island.
Guests can enter the wintery world of Arendelle with royal sisters Anna and Elsa. Kids will also get to experience the mysterious magic of Fantasia as a Sorcerer’s Apprentice, while emotions – Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear and Disgust from Disney Pixar’s Inside Out make their holiday on ice debut in the Philippines as hosts of the show. The audience will also find themselves under the sea with Dory as she embarks on a life-changing excursion to find her family.
“Each section of the show was carefully selected to immerse families in an array of beloved stories that they have grown to know and love. With live hosts and interactive segments, we hope our fans have an amazing experience that leaves them with memories that last a lifetime,” executive vice president and producer of Feld Entertainment Nicole Feld said.
Christmas is considered as an extended holiday in the Philippines and part of the Filipino tradition during these times is to come and watch “Disney on Ice.”
“SM Lifestyle Entertainment is honored to continue hosting such legacy that has become a yearly holiday tradition for all ages as part of our move forward in bringing memorable experiences for the Filipinos,” Medina added.
“Disney on Ice Mickey’s Super Celebration” will have a full lineup of shows starting on Christmas Day where every performance is going to be special, the management promises.
“It’s more of the Disney experience that we are giving out to our patrons and to the kids. It has been proven that ‘Disney on Ice’ will always be a part of the Christmas family traditions for all,” Arnel Gonzales, Mall of Asia Arena assistant vice president’ said.
