Disney on Ice is a series of touring ice shows produced by Feld Entertainment under agreement with The Walt Disney Company. Aimed primarily at children, the shows feature figure skaters dressed as Disney cartoon characters in performances derived from various Disney films.

History[edit]

Soon after Mattel's Irvin & Kenneth Feld Productions purchased Ice Follies and Holiday on Ice in 1979, the company approached Disney about doing a Disney-related show on ice.[1][2] Feld Entertainment licensed the rights to Disney material for ice shows.[3] In 1981, they began productions under the name Walt Disney's World on Ice.[4] The name was changed to "Disney on Ice" in late 1997.[3]
