We are really excited to see all the beautiful costumes and to sing-a-long with some of our favourite Disney songs like, "Beauty and the Beast", "Can you feel the love tonight?" and "A Whole New World". With Mickey and Minnie leading the fun, the show includes breathtaking skating numbers, devised by an award-winning choreographer who created the skating segment for the Opening Ceremonies of the 2002 Winter Olympics!
