is Disney on Ice, the answer is 100 Years of Magic. While Disney on Ice: 100 Years of Magic was created in 2001 to celebrate
the birthday of the renowned and beloved Walt Disney, the spectacular show continues to tour across North America with a touch
just a touch more magic. On January 9-12, 2014, audiences will experience more than 100 years worth of Disney magic on and
off the ice. There is nothing more magical than an ice-skating spectacular with the most recognizable and historical figureheads
of Disney. Audiences will leave the Nassau singing, "My, oh my, what a wonderful show," in addition to telling their friends,
neighbors and family how Disney on Ice: 100 Years of Magic magnificently transformed their otherwise mediocre evening into

Disney on Ice: 100 Years of Magic: The Plot
Disney On Ice: 100 Years of Magic, audiences of all ages will love seeing sixty-five of Walt Disney's most beloved characters.
The show does not simply showcase it's colorful caste of characters through cameos, there are eighteen of Disney's coveted
stories coming to life on ice. If there is one thing audiences can be sure to see is magic… the Nassau Coliseum is well
suited to support a show of such magical grandeur. The spirit of Disney brings smiles and laughter to the faces of all who
attend. The excitement associated with Mickey Mouse makes anyone who grew up watching the Mickey Mouse club sing out, "Micky
Mouse!" Anything Mickey Mouse will remind the different generations in the audience of sitting in front of the television
set wanting to be a Mouseketeer just like Annette Funicello, Britney Spears or Ryan Gosling. What is better than sitting in
front of the television watching all things Disney, seeing incredible scenes from The Lion King, Toy Story, Mulan and Finding
Nemo bring new life gliding on ice in Uniondale. Do you and your daughter love Disney Princesses? Well, Jiminy Cricket, will
be there too, so you know buying a ticket to share this opportunity with your family is in good conscious.
Cast of Costumed Characters
What an costumed delightful cast of talented ice skating princesses, crickets, mice, toys,
goofy (still not sure whether or not he is a dog or a mouse), wooden boys, lion, fish and superheroes. Okay, not just any
cricket, mouse or toy, the cast consists of Disney's most loved. To name a few, Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy,
Nemo, Simba, Mulan, Princess Bell and the Incredibles. It most certainly takes an adept Duck to skate on ice.
The creative team behind Disney On Ice: 200 Years of Magic is the Walt Disney Company. More specifically,
The Disney Theatrical Group is responsible for the live performances that are found on ice and on stage. The Walt Disney Studios
has been active for nearly 90 years and does a magnificent job at bringing the magic of Disney to its global audiences.
"Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah" is a quintessential Disney song that was written for the film Song of the South.
The tune has become so popularized that it has been seen in a number of places. In fact, the Bun-Bun Brothers, a group of
singing rabbits, sang the song during an Alan Arkin episode of Jim Henson's The Muppet Show.
Did you know that during
the 1980s that the Jim Henson Company, which brought audiences The Muppet Show, Sesame Street and Fraggle Rock, came close
to entering an office merger with Disney? Picture Kermit the Frog being kissed by one of Disney's fairest princesses and being
turned into a Disney prince. One can only imagine a world where Miss Piggy was a Disney princess.The deal was close to completion
when Henson's heartbreaking and unexpected death at the age of 53 led to the demise of he merger. Following the passing of
the master puppeteer, the Jim Hensen Company partnered with the Walt Disney Company to produce and release The Muppet Christmas
Carol and Muppet Treasure Island. What is more is that Walt Disney Home Video is known to have released some Sesame Street
videos in the United Kingdom.
Lastly, another interesting fact about the man Walt Disney himself is that he lived in
Marceline, Missouri in his youth. There is even a museum that die-hard Disney fans may visit. It is called the Walt Disney
Hometown Museum and it claims to be the place "where Walt found the magic!" As the story goes, he was five years old when
he rolled into town by train. Its mission is to remind everyone that magic can happen. That is to "ensure the world never
forgets that Walt Disney was a simple farm boy from Marceline who grew to become the keeper of childhood magic." Perhaps,
Disney On Ice: 100 Years of Magic will inspire you with Disney's childhood magic so you have "plenty of sunshine coming your
