Disney On Ice is the musical show of Disney stories on ice with world-class figure skaters along with Mickey, Minnie and many other popular Disney characters. Since its world premiere in 1981, it has been performed in more than 75 countries around the world. This time, projection mapping was used on the stage set for the first time at Disney On Ice, and the World of Disney is expressed more realistically than ever before. This year was a special one commemorating the 35th performance in Japan, and it was held for the first time in three years.

It was held from July 7 to September 25, 2022, in 10 cities across Japan, in Akita, Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka, Yokohama, Fukuoka, Kobe, Hiroshima, Saitama, and Makuhari. Ticket prices varied depending on the type of seats, and the highest priced ticket was ¥11,000 and the lowest priced ticket was ¥4,000. The performance lasted about 2 hours with a 20-minute intermission. The audience were permitted to take photos and videos on site, and they could share them as memories on SNS. It gets very cold inside there, so it might be a good idea to dress warmly.

The story was about trying to find Tinker Bell, who has been captured by pirates, Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy travel to the worlds of “Beauty and the Beast,” “The Little Mermaid,” “Frozen,” “Aladdin,” “Moana,” “Toy Story,” “Coco,” and many other Disney stories using a map. You could enjoy the performances that represented each world. If you know the story of them, it will be more fun for you. Some characters performed spectacular acrobatics, hanging high and twirling around, jumping over large platforms. It was enjoyable for both children and adults.

Before the show, during intermission and after the show, original goods such as plush toys and penlights were available for purchase at the venue, and there was also popcorn or shaved ice with Souvenirs. Audience members were given priority in booking for next year’s show.
