Halloween, Holidays and Happy Times

Disney on Ice Presents Let’s Celebrate! Brings its Magic to Philips Arena
By Shandra Hill Smith

With Halloween and the holidays fast approaching, this time of year spells celebration. If you could use a bit more push to gear up for all the upcoming celebrations, Disney on Ice can definitely deliver.

Disney on Ice Presents Let’s Celebrate! (Feld Entertainment) kicked off Wednesday and runs through Sunday, October 13 at Philips Arena. During the party on ice, you’ll magically travel with Mickey Mouse for festivals, holidays and celebrations around the globe.

Expect to head out for a Halloween haunt, dance down Bourbon Street for Mardi Gras, ring in the Chinese New Year, drop in on Carnival in Brazil as well as a Valentine’s Day Royal Ball, and celebrate Christmas and more during this hour-and-a-half show. Let’s Celebrate pays tribute to different countries and their particular seasons of life.

Experience celebrations through the eyes of more than four dozen Disney characters, including Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse and their friends (Pluto, Goofy, Donald Duck and Daisy Duck). You’ll also enjoy appearances from Captain Hook (“Jake and the Never Land Pirates”), princess Tiana (The Princess and the Frog”), Disney princesses with their princes, such as Belle from “Beauty and the Beast,” Disney fairies, including Tinker Bell, as well as Buzz Lightyear and the rest of the toy characters from “Toy Story.”
