Disney On Ice Cast to Host Blind Touch Tour for Kids at the St. Pete Times Forum This Friday
Children from the Lion’s Eye Institute Foundation to Participate in Special Tour
TAMPA BAY –A group of visually impaired Hillsborough County school children will get their own special visit with the Disney On Ice presents Let’s Celebrate! crew, at the St. Pete Times Forum this Friday, May 21.
At 11:00 a.m. on Friday, about 20 blind or partially vision impaired children from the Lion’s Eye Institute Foundation will be treated to a private touch tour at the arena. With the help of Feld Entertainment’s cast and crew, the children will be able to "see" the magic of Disney with their hands. They will experience this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, tracing the characters’ faces with their hands and feeling the costumes and props, while listening to their favorite Disney music as the cast explains what they do and how things work.
The show actually opens to the public this Thursday night at the St. Pete Times Forum, where guests for Disney On Ice presents Let’s Celebrate! can join Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse as they celebrate a Very Merry Unbirthday Party with Alice and the Mad Hatter; Mardi Gras with Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen; a Royal Valentine’s Day Ball with the Disney Princesses; a Hawaiian luau with Lilo & Stitch; a winter wonderland with Woody and Buzz Lightyear from Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story; a Halloween haunt with the Disney Villains and more in the celebration of the century.
Disney On Ice presents Let’s Celebrate! will be a memorable and uplifting experience for the whole family. Friday’s event for these visually impaired children is just a way of sharing that spirit, that magic, with some special Bay area children.
