Disney On Ice: 10 Things you should know
Disney On Ice is just three days away. While you wait to see your favourite Disney characters come alive in front of you, here are a few things to know before the show.
- The show will last approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes.
- With all the ice, the temperature in the auditorium might get a little nippy, so make sure you bring light warm clothing, especially for the kids.
- Some of the costumes with a lot of detailing used in the show are actually hand-sewn.
- Parking: Visitors with a general admission or VIP ticket can park at the QNCC Visitor Car Park located at Entrance 4. For VVIP ticket holders, a valet parking service is available behind the QNCC near Hall 8.
- Over 60 Disney characters will perform at the show and the performers are from all over the world including Russia, Canada and Europe.
- All performances are choreographed by Emmy-award Canadian choreographer Sarah Kawahara and the spectacular set has been conceived and designed by David Potts, whose work can be viewed in various Broadway performances, feature films and TV series.
- Around 48,000 litres of water were used to make the ice and it took around 24 to 48 hours for the ice preparation process from start to finish.
- The ice floor for the show, including all panels, weighs a little more than 63,500 kgs.
- The performance troupe always travels with their own equipment and machinery including their own washing machines and dryers.
- Oh! Keep your eyes peeled for the truck that Donald Duck will drive into the rink. The actual driver of the truck will be seated inside the bonnet of the truck, hidden from the rest of the audience.
