Disney On Ice: Road Trip Adventures in Vancouver
Disney On Ice puts on magical performances at venues around the world. The show on skates visits many cities across North America in 2022. Disney On Ice: Road Trip Adventures comes to Vancouver this fall with daily shows in the fourth week of November.
The stadium experience takes viewers on a journey to different Disney destinations. The show features favourite characters from popular Disney productions. There’s Mickey Mouse, Aladdin and Mary Poppins. Also featured are characters from Frozen, Toy Story, Moana, The Incredibles, and more.
The performers at Disney On Ice are all very talented and put on awesome shows. There’s lots of singing, dancing and even acrobatics to enjoy. Of course, the shows take place on ice, which makes the performances even more impressive.
For the main shows, kids under the age of 14 are welcome to arrive in costumes. Costumes are not allowed for older folks. This year, there are also Preshows happening before the main performances.
Access to the Preshow requires a separate ticket. The Preshow experience runs for between 45 and 60 minutes and includes photo opportunities with Moana and Mickey Mouse, plus games and crafts activities. It’s a fun way to meet and interact with famous Disney characters before they hit the ice.

Tickets to watch Disney On Ice are available online. Prices range from $25 up to about $130 per person (plus taxes and online fees). Toddlers under the age of 2 can get in for free.

Tips and Suggestions
Below are some tips and advice to help you make the most out of your experience at Disney On Ice.
TIP#1: Doors for each performance open about an hour before the listed show times. Even though seating is reserved, it’s best to arrive early and get settled into your seats well before the show begins. Give yourself lots of time just in case traffic is bad.
TIP#2: Tickets cannot be exchanged or refunded. This is unfortunate but good to know before booking.
TIP#3: Tickets can be booked only in groups of up to eight. For groups of fifteen or more people, it’s best to contact Disney On Ice directly. Large groups may be able to save money on tickets and suites might also be available.
