Dress up your little princesses & heroes for Disney on Ice this weekend in Savannah

October 23rd, 2014

SF_D26B_CharacterLogo_SFYK_11026 (1)

Elsa isn’t on the ice in Savannah’s annual Disney on Ice show.

But Elsa certainly is in the audience. Lots of Elsas.

Oodles of little girls dressed up as Elsa at the skating spectacular that’s in Savannah this weekend for nine performances at the Savannah Civic Center.    Disney on Ice encourages kids attending the event to dress up as their favorite princesses & heroes.

We attended the packed opening night this week & loved seeing all the kids dressed as their favorite Disney characters.

Disney On Ice presents Treasure Trove  features all your Old School Disney favorites- Rapunzel, Alice & the Mad Hatter, Tinker Bell, Peter Pan, Captain Hook, Tiana, Cinderella, Jasmine, Ariel, Sleeping Beauty, Belle, Mulan, Snow White  and, my favorite, the Seven Dwarfs.

The crowd loved Simba, Nala, Pumbaa and Timon as they discovered the true meaning of the ‘Circle of Life.’

The show is about 1 hour & 45 minutes with a 20 minute intermission about 40 minutes in the performance.

Tickets for Disney On Ice presents Treasure Trove are available at the Savannah Civic Center Box Office here and Etix.com.
