Disney on Ice brings "Worlds of Enchantment" to the Agganis Theater for its special holiday show in December, and then returns for the Winter School Vacation Break Week during February with their all-new "Road Trip Adventures " show at TD Garden.

With talented performers in costumes portraying all your favorite Disney characters, this fabulous ice show never fails to dazzle with its perfectly balanced mix of dance, unforgettable music, and exciting moments.
