My girls are big Disney fans and love the Disney on Ice shows that visit Vancouver. It brings a little of the Disney magic to home. They are very excited about their next presentation, Disney on Ice: Dare to Dream, as it appears to be chock full of princesses and who doesn’t love a good princess? The kids are especially stoked about the début of Rapunzel.

Boogie to the beat of the bayou with Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen in a magical, musical journey that all begins with a fateful kiss. And fanciful dreams become reality as Cinderella meets her Prince Charming, with a glass slipper fit for an unforgettable fantasy come true.

It gets better:
Disney On Ice is sponsoring a hair donation campaign partnering with Hype Hair Studio and Balding for Dollars to benefit undeserved children suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. Disney On Ice and Hype Hair Studio are inviting the community to cut and donate their hair from November 5th – November 9th.
In appreciation of their kind-hearted gesture, each person donating their hair to charity will receive a free family pack of four tickets valued at $96 (available for the first 50 donations) to a Disney On Ice presents Dare to Dream show.
To donate your hair you must follow these guidelines:
- Hair must be clean and dry prior to cutting
- The minimum length for hair donations is 8 inches.
- Curly hair may be pulled straight to measure the minimum 8 inches.
- Hair that has been chemically processed cannot be accepted.
- Grey hair is acceptable.
- Donations must be tightly bound in a ponytail or secured with rubber bands one at each end of the ponytail and in the middle; and placed in a sealed plastic bag.
The fitted hairpieces require 20 ponytails and are handmade in 40-60 hours. It is estimated that children make up over 80 percent of the donors, making this a charity where children have an opportunity to help children.
