Disney on Ice Celebrates 25 Years in Japan

Disney On Ice celebrates 25 years of producing live entertainment in Japan this summer. Disney On Ice has entertained over 20 million Japanese guests, since skating into the country in July 1986, with the then branded Walt Disney's World On Ice presents Happy Birthday Donald. As a result, Japan has earned the distinction of being the largest single-country market for Disney On Ice outside of the United States.

Disney On Ice presents Mickey & Minnie's Fantasy Tour brings a brand new show to Japanese audiences in 2010. This 25th Anniversary celebration is hosted by Mickey, Minnie, Donald Duck and Goofy and features the stories of Disney/Pixar's CARS, The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, and Tinker Bell. Adapted from Disney On Ice presents Worlds of Fantasy, which premiered in North America in 2008, this show marks the first appearance of the CARS and Fairies franchises in a live touring production, featuring ¾ scale CARS live on ice and the full second act dedicated to Tinker Bell and the Disney Fairies. Disney On Ice presents Mickey & Minnie's Fantasy Tour will visit sixteen Japanese cities in 172 performances over 18 weeks. The ice show plays in Japan from July 8th – November 7th.

Feld Entertainment, producer of Disney On Ice, has partnered with Chukyo Television, a member of the Nippon Television network, over the past 25 years to build delight audiences all over Japan. Together these collaborators have brought the ice shows to local communities, many times introducing first-time audiences to the magic of Disney through live entertainment.

Feld Entertainment delivers Disney On Ice and Disney Live! shows globally through its license from Disney Theatrical Group. For the past 30 years, through Disney On Ice and more recently through Disney Live!, Feld Entertainment has brought beloved Disney stories and characters annually to over 12 million guests in nearly 50 countries worldwide through productions such as Princess Wishes, Worlds of Fantasy, Let's Celebrate!, Toy Story 3, Three Classic Fairy Tales and Mickey's Rockin' Road Show.
