Tickets will go on sale on 6 March for Disney On Ice celebrates 100 Years of Magic, which premieres in Perth in June.
The 2018 tour of Disney On Ice will bring to life more than 14 timeless Disney tales including Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, Toy Story, The Lion King, Finding Nemo, Frozen and more. Popular TV personality, Shelley Craft, is the Australian Ambassador for the 2018 tour, returning for a second year.
"I know every one of these stories! I have such fond memories from my own childhood, as well as my time working on Saturday Disney. Now a mum of two young girls who LOVE these stories and characters, I'm thrilled to be partnering with Disney On Ice for a second year – and so is my family!," says Shelley Craft.
"Disney On Ice has become a tradition for my family and for the past five years, my daughters and I have traveled to Brisbane to see the show. Each year we create new memories, which I value dearly," says Shelley Craft.
Creating memories is synonymous with Disney On Ice, who recently surveyed Australian families about their own childhood memories. The survey of more than 8,000 people revealed the most treasured childhood memory for people was a specific family activity (55%), followed by a specific holiday overseas with the family (14%), a specific family celebration (12%), a major life event e.g. first day of school (6%) and receiving a specific toy/game (5%).
The survey also found that work pressures were a key obstacle for people when creating lasting childhood memories for their child/children, nominated by 57% of respondents. This was followed by conflicting family schedules (15%), technology (14%), limited or no time with grandparents (9%) and academic expectations (5%).
Disney On Ice celebrates 100 Years of Magic will open in Perth on 15 June 2018 and travels to Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Newcastle and Sydney through to 23 July. Tickets go on sale from Tuesday 6 March 2018 at www.Ticketek.com.au/DisneyOnIce.
