Soon after Mattel's Irvin & Kenneth Feld Productions purchased Ice Follies and Holiday on Ice in 1979, the company approached the iconic company about doing a Disney-related show on ice. Feld Productions consequently licensed the rights to Disney material for ice shows, and in 1981, they began productions under the name Walt Disney's World on Ice. In March of the following year, Irvin & Kenneth Feld purchased back Feld Productions from Mattel including Ice Follies/Walt Disney's World on Ice, and five years later, Walt Disney's World on Ice made its international debut in Japan with Happy Birthday, Donald. The company consequently had five touring shows in 1988, and a decade later, the name was officially changed to Disney on Ice, with a new touring presentation launched every year since 2008.
Disney on Ice Presents Find Your Hero will enjoy its Moline-amphitheater run from November 30 through December 3, with performances on Thursday and Friday at 7 p.m.; Saturday at 11 a.m., 3 p.m., and 7 p.m.; and Sunday at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Admission is $20-70, and tickets are available by calling (800)745-3000 and visiting VibrantArena.com.
