‘Disney on Ice’ Celebrates 40 Years of Thrilling Entertainment. Congratulations to Feld Entertainment and Disney on celebrating 40 years of magic on the ice! Feld Entertainment CEO Kenneth Feld wrote a special message for the celebrations, stating:
“Everything you do in life starts with one small step. The first Disney On Ice show premiered in 1981 and we are still bringing happiness to generations of families 40 years later. When we started it we never knew it would last this long. Disney On Ice is ever-changing and there are always surprises for all of our Disney fans. That’s the key. As long as we continue to do that Disney On Ice will always be around. We are grateful for the 320 million-plus fans who have seen Disney On Ice in over 68 countries, the Feld Entertainment Associates who have contributed to the success and The Walt Disney Company for 40 years of Disney On Ice.”
We recently sat in on a discussion with Ken and Courtney Potter (editor and writer at D23: The Official Disney Fan Club) who shared plenty of insight and stories from over the years including how the show has evolved over time and how they managed some incredible and iconic stunts! Check out the conversation in the video posted below:
“Disney on Ice is a touring ice show produced by Feld Entertainment under agreement with The Walt Disney Company. Aimed primarily at children, the shows feature Disney characters in performances that each derive their music and plot from elements featured in various Disney films and properties; the “stars” of the show are credited as the Disney characters themselves. The first performance debuted on July 29, 1981, under the name Walt Disney’s World on Ice. The name was later changed in 1997 to Disney On Ice.”
