Disney On Ice presents Mickey & Minnie's Amazing Journey

About the Show:
Disney On Ice presents Mickey & Minnie's Amazing Journey takes audiences on an action-packed tour of the imagination to fice exciting destinations filled with favorite Disney friends. Straight from their seats, guests will be transported to the enchanting worlds of Disney's the Lion King, Lilo & Stitch, The Little Mermaid, 101 Dalmatians and Peter Pan. The arena will be filled with music, magic, and best of all Mickey & Minnie acting as a tour guide for the trip packed with surprises and excitement, including a special appearance by Tinker Bell.

Each scene brings the story to an unusual and exciting new location, including a dreamy London cityscape, a colorful tropical island, an underwater kingdom and the untamed savannah of Africa. Audiences will experience the madcap mischief of Peter Pan's Lost Boys, an upbeat hula with Lilo and Stitch, the easygoing "Hakuna Matata" of simba and friends, and a reggae-spiced ramp led by Sebastian of Disney's The Little Mermaid. "It is an extraordinary show, an adventure through imagination and a family vacation all rolled into one incredible nigh," says producer Kenneth Feld. "You really get a sense you are travelling right alongside Mickey, Minnie and their friends. At the end, without ever leaving your seat, you feel like you've toured London, taken a dip in the sea, joined a safari, and enjoyed a Hawaiian luau."

Disney On Ice presents Mickey & Minnie's Amazing Journey features an international team of award-winning skaters, exciting choreography and a musical score full of hits the whole family will enjoy. These elements appeal to the senses and bring the picture-postcard worlds within the arena to life. "Not is this show a journey to many Disney destinations, it is a journey of emotions," says Director Jerry Bilik. "From the high-flying, daring adventures of Peter Pan to the antics of Sebastian, from the warmth of 101 Dalmatian puppies to the majesty of Simba ascending to his role as the king of all the beasts, the audience will experience excitement, humor, friendship and much more."

Each destination has its own mood and lighting created by Patrick dierson. The foggy London skyline that can be seen from the Darling children's window soon changes to the mysterious forest where Peter Pan and the Lost Boys live in their treehouse., while Simba, Pumbaa and Timon cavort amid the African sunlight of foliage.
The many moods of the show are enhanced by the late Robert Smith's scenic design both on and off the ice. For example, Lilo's Hawaiian home is on the ice, while Stitch's alien planet is depicted above it, creating a multidimentional feel for the show. Captain Hook's rollicking crew sails across the ice on an enormous pirate ship measuring more than 35 feet long and nearly 18 1/2 feet wide, and King Triton's daughters emerge for their music lessons from oversized shells. Costume Designer Arthur Boccia has assembled specific and appealing looks for all the Disney locales. Creatures and characters along the way sport everything from nightgowns to grass skirts to fur coats. Dozens and dozens of black-and-white spotted Dalmatians give way to Triton's finclad daughters.

Musically, Disney On Ice presents Mickey and Minnie's Amazing Journey combines familiar tunes from Disney's Peter Pan, and The Little Mermaid along with new favorites from Disney's Lilo and Stitch and the Academy Award winning songs from The Lion King that the whole family will recognize. The unconventional mix of music inspired Choreographer Cindy Stuart to incorporate original moves, like the boisterous pirate line dance and the fanned-out precision number for Pongo and Perdita's gigantic Dalmatian litter. Stuart also included more classic skating, like David and Nani's touching surf duet, Cruella De Vil's slithery solo and Prince Eric and Ariel's pas de deux. All the elements blend together to create an ingenious and inspirational production that wil pique everyone's interest. The fast pace takes off with Peter Pan and friends' flight to Never Land and continous to soar with a rock-star Stitch surfing above the crowd.

Jam-packed with exciting and original effects, Disney On Ice presents Mickey and Minnie's Amazing Journey through some of Disney's most beloved stories, sure to delight the entire family.
