Pixar may be enjoying an unprecedented run of success—okay, let’s call a spade a spade, total and utter dominance is more like it—but those Disney films of yesteryear have given us some truly enchanting moments; Aladdin & Jasmine’s magic carpet ride; Cinderella’s fairy godmothers sprucing up the place with their magic wands. Well get ready to see them in a whole new light. Before you’ve even got a chance to warm up after Disney on Ice, the cartoon clan is back at Ontario’s Citizens Business Bank this weekend for Disney Live! Presents Mickey’s Magic Show. More than just a mishmash of special effects, the experience will see classic Disney characters side-by-side with some of the best professional illusionists around, recreating scenes previously only made possible by, well, Disney magic. Now families can see scenes from Cinderella to Snow White and, of course, that old psychedelic tale Alice in Wonderland in all their live glory.
Disney Live! Presents Mickey’s Magic Show at Citizens Business Bank Arena, 4000 E. Ontario Center Parkway, Ontario; (800) 745-3000; www.disneylive.com, www.cbbankarena.com. Sat, Jan. 15 (3:30PM & 6:30PM) and Sun, Jan. 16 (12PM & 3PM). Tickets start at $20.
