“What I like best about Disney On Ice is that we are privileged to bring classic and modern Disney and Pixar stories to hometowns around the world live on ice,” says Producer Nicole Feld. “In this production, our amazing creative team chose action-packed stories that really resonate with not only kids today, but with their parents as well. The Wonderful World of Disney On Ice has everything from an underwater adventure in Finding Dory to the comedic duo Timon and Pumbaa in The Lion King.”
Crowd interaction is a key component to the Disney On Ice experience and Director Patty Vincent focuses on immersing audiences in key segments of the production. “In The Wonderful World of Disney On Ice, we’ve created a beautiful moment where an audience member gets to release a lantern with Rapunzel and Flynn at the beginning of “I See the Light,” says Vincent. “It’s breathtaking to watch, and then Rapunzel and Flynn skate a beautiful duet with the lanterns glowing above them.”
