Disney On Ice presents Worlds of Enchantment in Savannah

Wednesday, October 24th, 2018

Disney on Ice Savannah

Disney On Ice presents Worlds of Enchantment!  is a celebration of childhood set to song.

The two-hour ice show featuring Frozen, Cars, Toy Story & The Little Mermaid is @ the Savannah Civic Center this week October 24-29, 2018. We caught opening night & savored the show.

Your kids will love Woody, Jessie, Buzz Lightyear, Ariel, Sebastian, Anna, Elsa, Olaf &, of course, Mickey, Minnie.

You, however, will appreciate the snow falling in the civic center rafters during Frozen & the bubbles floating down during Little Mermaid, Elsa’s elegant skating & the fact that Ham (Toy Story) can skate at all. You’ll wonder how Lightning McQueen, Mater & Sally glide on the ice.

You’ll appreciate the fact that Ken (Toy Story) wears an ascot & docksider-skates. You’ll groove in your seat to the pop tunes during the Toy Story segment. And you may just choke up a bit when four costume-clad kids from the audience get to glide around in a little boat on the ice during ‘Under the Sea.’ You may just cry outright at the very sight of all the little wide-eyed princesses and Olafs in the audience.

In the end, your kids’ favorite Disney characters gliding and pivoting on ice will serve as a reminder to relish all that is your kids’ childhood.

Get your tickets at DisneyOnIce.com.
