Magic & Ice Skating Event!

We begin with a magical grand entrance by The Snow Sisters. Once announced, our Royals will enter with an attention-grabbing opening song performance. After the number, the characters will lead a story time, play games, and dance with guests! Don't forget the photo-ops!! Once we arrive at the last activity, the characters will then invite guests to join them on the ice for a bit of chilly, cheerful, skating fun! It's important to note: is it NOT mandatory for guests to participate in any on-ice activity. At the end of the event our Princesses will say their goodbyes, give final hugs, take any last photos, and this concludes the experience!
