The stage show Disney on Ice is returning to Abu Dhabi.

This time the family-friendly event has been given a new spin, with a new show. It's called Disney on Ice presents Mickey and Friends and is set to be performed at Etihad Arena on Yas Island from October 12 to 16.

In the show, Mickey Mouse will be joined by his pals Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy on an adventure to discover his favourite memory of all time.

Using Mickey’s “Mouse Pad”, show hosts will encourage fans to be part of the action and help the group to venture though Disney stories, sharing memorable moments from treasured tales.

The show runs for typically an hour and a half to two hours, with a 15 to 20-minute intermission.

Tickets are on sale now, with an early-bird special of 10 per cent off until July 1.
