Do you want to build a snowman? It doesn’t have to be a snowman! At Disney On Ice’s Passport to Adventure this month, you’ll meet sisters Anna and Elsa, and rugged mountain man Kristoff – followed by everyone’s favourite huggable snowman Olaf. But the number one animated film of all time’s wintery wonderland is just a part of the show.
Disney’s Passport to Adventure show at Dubai World Trade Centre from Wednesday April 4 to Saturday 7, brings a fun-filled ice spectacular in celebration of the best Disney tales of all time, with Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, Donald and Daisy Duck, and Goofy all involved. Journey to the timeless worlds of The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, Peter Pan and Frozen.
You’ll explore the African Pride Lands with Simba, Timon and Pumbaa, voyage deep under the sea to Ariel’s mystical underwater kingdom and tour London with Peter Pan and Wendy before flying to Neverland to meet up with Tinker Bell on a trip like no other. Now that’s a way to visit Disneyland from the comfort of your own World Trade Centre Arena seat.
Better yet, there are family ticket packs at 20 percent discount available when you purchase four tickets in the same category, excluding Royal and Bronze tickets.
And the early bird catches… the pre-show! Featuring Zootropolis, energetic music and loveable characters, it’ll prepare you for the magic that’s up next. Organisers SES Live’s founder and CEO Ali Haidary says: “This year’s show is unique because it includes two new stories that have never before been featured in Dubai, The Lion King and Peter Pan. Robert Smith’s scenic design has brilliantly captured the stories, alongside Costume Designer Arthur Boccia, who created the authentically disheveled looks of Captain Hook’s rambunctious pirates.”
