Three years since Mickey Mouse and his friends last visited Manila, Filipinos can again embark on a magical journey as Disney on Ice is set to make its triumphant return to the country in December.
Featuring both timeless classics and new tales, this multi-generational experience dubbed “Disney on Ice presents 100 Years of Wonder” will take place at the SM Mall of Asia Arena from December 22 to January 7, 2024.
The country will be the first trip of Disney on Ice presents 100 Years of Wonder to Asia because according to Matthew Garrick, senior director at APAC Feld Entertainment, more people attend the show in Manila than any other city in Southeast Asia.
“A big thank you to big Disney on Ice fans in the Philippines for your support over the past few years. We’ve also received more messages from fans in the Philippines when Disney on Ice will return than any other country that we play. So today we announce that the wait is finally over,” Garrick said.
“Disney on Ice in Manila has become a family tradition, and it means the world to us to be back and welcome a new generation of fans to see the show. I’m sure many of the parents who will come this year have memories of Disney on Ice when they were a kid and now, they get to share that experience with their children. We’re proud that we’re a show that all generations can come and enjoy together,” he added.
Garrick further promised that Disney on Ice will be unlike anything fans have seen before – it’s bigger and it has more character interactions, it has new show elements that will take families on an adventure through timeless stories.
