In honor of Disney on Ice Presents Dare to Dream from Feld Entertainment, the American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge in New York City was transformed into a day spa for young princesses currently undergoing treatment for cancer. As part of the campaign dubbed ‘Hairy Godmother,’ the show held a Princess Pampering event featuring hair stylist Andrew Disimone, who assisted with fitting and styling wigs for the girls.
Along with the wig fittings, the girls were also treated to other activities such as chocolate facials, manicures and pedicures, a make-your-own-sundae bar and a special meet and greet with Rapunzel herself.
As part of the campaign, Disney on Ice will be donating $2 of each ticket sold to the American Cancer Society for supplying wigs to young cancer patients when purchased using the code HAIR for shows in the New York and New Jersey areas.
For more information and photos from the event, visit the Disney on Ice official Facebook page.
Dreams do come true! Feld Entertainment is bringing the magic of Disney to the ice with two new shows debuting this fall, both featuring hair-raising moments from Walt Disney Studio’s hit animated film, Tangled. Audiences will experience the enchantment and splendor of new and classic princesses in Disney On Ice presents Dare to Dream, as they frolic in the French quarter with Tiana from Princess and the Frog, relive the timeless story of Cinderella and watch Rapunzel let down her hair on the ice for the first time ever. In Disney On Ice presents Treasure Trove, audiences will enjoy a gem for every generation in a magical medley of Disney tales that span the years from the first animated film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, to the 50th film, Tangled. Disney On Ice presents Dare to Dream launches September 2 in Lakeland, Fla., while Disney On Ice presents Treasure Trove kicks off its North American tour in San Diego, Calif., on October 5.
This year marks the first time Feld Entertainment has launched two brand new Disney On Ice shows simultaneously. Celebrating a 30-year partnership with The Walt Disney Company, Feld Entertainment is committed to bringing more high quality entertainment to families around the world than ever before. Dare to Dream and Treasure Trove also record another first for the company: both shows are led by two female sister producers, Nicole Feld and Juliette Feld.
“We are ecstatic to be able to bring audiences two incredible new ice shows this year that set the standard for the ultimate Disney experience,” says Producer Nicole Feld. “Because Tangled marks the 50th Disney animated feature, it was only fitting that we celebrate that achievement by including moments from Rapunzel’s story in both new shows.”
Dare to Dream, a vibrant, contemporary compilation of princesses, features popular songs and unforgettable scenes from two of Disney’s newest fairytales and one of the most cherished stories of all time. Audiences will behold an alluring aerialist act with Rapunzel’s golden locks, shimmering gowns that twinkle and twirl during Cinderella’s royal ball, a lighting display that illuminates all the fireflies in Tiana’s New Orleans bayou and a grand finale with all the Disney princesses.
Treasure Trove is an action-packed ice adventure that takes audiences on a journey through their favorite stories from Disney animated features. Brave a battle against Captain Hook and his pirate pals with Peter Pan and the Lost Boys, trek across the Pride Lands with Simba, Timon and Pumbaa, and enter the whimsical world of Wonderland to witness a precision skating number by the Queen of Hearts’ Army of Cards in this extraordinary lineup from the Disney animated film vault.
“Watching Disney movies is a special pastime for many families. For Treasure Trove, we wanted to extend that experience by producing one remarkable show to commemorate the everlasting legacy of Disney animated films, live on the ice,” says Producer Juliette Feld.
Both skating spectaculars draw upon the combined talents of seasoned experts for direction and choreography:

Shortly after our pre-announcement of the Phineas and Ferb Live! Tour, Exceutive VP Nicole Feld of Feld Entertainment (the producers of Disney Live! and Disney On Ice touring shows), offered us her appreciation on Twitter and also clued us in on an upcoming Disney On Ice announcement.
Although the announcement still has yet to be made, both the Disney Live! and Disney On Ice Facebook pages recently teased the following:
‘Disney Live! has another great announcement to make. For now, we’ll give you a hint: The first animated feature to win a Golden Globe for Best Picture – Musical or Comedy, features a girl dreaming of “adventure in the great wide somewhere” and unbeknown to her, her story has become a “tale as old as time.”’
According to Wikipedia, the Disney On Ice production of Beauty and the Beast first ran from 1997 – 1997 and returned 2000 – 2004, making this the third time the show has been performed if it indeed turns out to be the case.
Toy Story 3, the record-breaking #1 movie in the world, is so hot it’s cool as everyone’s favorite toys take to the ice in Disney On Ice presents Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3! An award-winning creative team and a cast of world-class skaters are bringing Woody, the pull-string cowboy; space ranger Buzz Lightyear; Jessie, the yodeling cowgirl; and the rest of the gang to fans and families around the country in this brand-new live ice spectacular produced by Feld Entertainment. This fast-paced and witty tale of friendship launches a 2-year, 75-city North American tour on September 3rd in Lakeland, FL.
To enhance this live experience, the production will feature state-of-the-art projection design, allowing adults and children alike to virtually shrink down as Andy’s room is transformed from human to toy-sized. Families are whisked away, reliving iconic moments from Toy Story and Toy Story 2 before they embark on the brand-new adventure of Toy Story 3. This innovative 3D technology, a first for any Disney On Ice show, blends four separate images into one massive 3D projection using the entire ice surface to create oversized effects and scenic elements, altering the audience’s perception of scale. Memorable scenes take on a new life as a pinball machine of monumental proportion is created at Pizza Planet, with the massive pinball table projected onto the ice and the score board on the stage behind it. This perspective, among many others throughout the show, reinforces the audience’s experience as a toy-sized spectator.
“An award-winning team of artists, designers and technicians are redefining the theatre of ice with a show that challenges the audience’s perception of scale,” says Producer Nicole Feld. “Disney On Ice presents Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3 is Feld Entertainment’s most innovative show ever.”
