Disney On Ice: Follow Your Heart Tickets

Originally known as Walt Disney's World on Ice,  Disney On Ice shows are part of a series of touring ice shows which feature a number of widely known Disney characters and storylines. To keep things fresh and interesting, Disney on Ice launches a new production every year.

The History of Disney On Ice

Disney On Ice was a concept that Mattel’s Irvin & Kenneth Feld Productions had been toying with since the 1970’s. In 1979, the company approached the Walt Disney Company about starting up ice shows with Disney characters and themes.

After Feld Entertainment acquired Holiday on Ice and Ice Follies, the plans to move forward with Disney on Ice became more concrete. They received the green light from Disney and were given license to use Disney material to create ice productions.

In 1981, the company began creating ice shows which were at that time called Walt Disney’s World on Ice.

By 1987, Walt Disney’s World on Ice was all set to make its international debut in Japan. The show that would premiere there was called Happy Birthday Donald.

As each year passed, the show was doing better and better. Audiences were flocking to see the wonder and magic of Disney on display in a dazzling ice show. By 1998, Walt Disney’s World on Ice was officially renamed Disney On Ice.

In 2008, due to the show’s continuing success, the company decided that from now on, every year a new Disney On Ice production would be launched.

The Disney On Ice Shows

Since its creation, there has been a number of different Disney On Ice productions. When the show first started out, it went by the name of Walt Disney’s World on Ice. The second show was called Happy Birthday Donald and premiered in Japan. Afterwards, the production was renamed and now a new Disney On Ice production is created every year for eager audiences across the world.
