Disney has been part of everybody’s childhood and holds a special place in everyone’s hearts, young and old. And almost every year since 1990, the Disney on Ice show has captivated audiences from all ages and from all walks of life. As a kid I can only look at the local catalog printing, posters and photos posted around the Araneta Center. Yes, I never got to watch the show and can only wish that someday, I’d be there seated and enjoying Mickey, Donald and the rest of the gang. My wish came true for 2012 Disney on Ice presents Princesses and Heroes when I finally saw Mickey Mouse in person during the press conference at the Gateway Suites.
But that’s not all! I will also get to watch the Disney on Ice show courtesy of the Araneta Center. I am so excited! This year will surely be another delightful entertainment for everyone. Eight Disney Princesses — old favorites Cinderella, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty as well as new generation’s Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Rapunzel and Tiana – will perform and tell the audience their awesome inspiring stories through artistic figure skating and acrobatic movements. Of course, their respective handsome princes will be on stage as well.
The audience will also witness the adventures of Aladdin in a wild marketplace chase and Prince Philip’s battle with a fire-breathing dragon, live! Watch the grandest, action-packed ice extravaganza never before seen in the Philippines. It looks like this is the most exciting, and most romantic ice show this holiday season!
