“School holidays are a bit hard on parents. The times we live in have made things tricky. In our times we could just wake up and go play outside. Nowadays - no. It's unsafe. There has to be an adult watching the kids like a hawk. It's horrible.”

These holidays Disney brings together a magical and nostalgic production called Disney on Ice
. The production tells the stories of legendary princesses including Tinker Bell, Ariel, Rapunzel, Cinderella, Belle, Anna and Elsa, all incapsulated in a beautifully crafted show on ice. Audiences can expect high-flying jumps, daring acrobatics, breathtaking skating and an unforgettable experience. “I likes Elsa the most because I have a dress just like hers.”
– Caitlyn, 6 “More than anything, I loved the old cartoons that I used to watch too like
The Little Mermaid, it reminds me of all the times I used to watch and sing along to the great songs, so coming here with my daughter was exciting.”
