Disney On Ice presents Mickey’s Search Party brings the magic closer to fans than ever before through dynamic and immersive moments that take place on the ice, in the air and in the seats when the show comes to Amway Center in Orlando September 7-9, 2018 for six performances. Produced by Feld Entertainment Inc., the worldwide leader in live touring family entertainment, Disney On Ice is once again elevating the ice show experience with brand-new engaging elements that will fascinate both newcomers and seasoned guests, alike. Tickets are on sale now at DisneyOnIce.com.

Joined by Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, live hosts will enliven the performance space by welcoming everyone into the magical world of Disney On Ice, setting the stage for a participatory adventure. Guests will embark on a search for clues to find Tinker Bell after Captain Hook tries to capture her magic. As each scene unfolds, compelling storytelling will be delivered through multi-level production numbers by skaters, performers and acrobats, alike.

As Miguel from Disney●Pixar’s Coco crosses the Marigold Bridge, he finds himself in the magnificent spirit realm painted with vibrant color, with skeletons atop sway poles oscillating back and forth over the audience in this culturally rich, heritage celebration. Through video projection, Arendelle builds from the ground up, and ice harvesters from Disney’s Frozen use extreme skating to launch themselves from the mountainous, wintry slopes delivering an athletically-driven performance as they chop their way through blocks of ice. The iconic chandelier seen in “Be Our Guest” comes to life as Belle and the enchanted objects from Beauty and the Beast become a rotating carousel using aerial silks and lift upward into the air, mesmerizing onlookers seated above and below.

In a high-energy opening number, Club Mickey Mouse-inspired performers will hype up the crowd through cutting-edge figure skating choreography and hoverboard tricks on the ice. Air tracks will also allow the hilarious pirates aboard the Jolly Roger to flip, tumble and twist to greater heights as they
attempt to showcase their talents for Captain Hook. Aerial straps combined with adagio pair skating will elevate Ariel’s transformation from mermaid to human creating a spell-bounding sequence high above the ice with Prince Eric to the classic song, “Kiss The Girl.” Creative costume design and fabrication will enhance the scenes as the ensemble imitate life “Under the Sea” from Disney’s The Little Mermaid, and
will also give the illusion the ice is enveloped in flames as Moana encounters Te Ka on her daring voyage to restore the heart of Te Fiti.

DOI-moana

Mickey’s Search Party will feature a collection of Disney characters fans know and love portrayed by decorated performer-athletes who push the boundaries of what is possible. Their theatrical talent, combined with this innovative Disney On Ice production, elevates the live entertainment experience and
will leave families with memories that will last a lifetime.

How to Use the Internet to Turn Your Finances Around​

When you’re caught up in a mountain of bills and debt, achieving financial freedom can seem like a pipe dream. However, with the power of the internet, it’s now easier than ever to turn your finances around within a matter of months. Between debt management assistance and the potential for building additional revenue streams, the web is a goldmine of money making and saving strategies. People everywhere are starting to leverage their free time by researching and creating new opportunities for themselves online. With that said, here are several ways you can use the internet to improve your quality of life and fix a stressful financial situation.

1. Online Trading

Many people have started using some of their savings to open upa forex account and trade currency pairs for profit. The foreign exchange (forex) market is so massive that more than $50 billion(USD) is transferred through the exchange every single day. There’s an abundance of tools, resources, and platforms that can be used to get started, even as a novice with no experience in financial trading. However, before you choose a brokerage site, it would be wise to check out brokers reviews and conduct a thorough comparison.

Note: As the world’s major currency, all global markets are measured in United States Dollars (USD).

2. eCommerce

Starting your own retail store online can help you significantly increase your monthly income and enter into a thriving industry that has the potential to make you a million within a matter of 3-5 years. Many people are starting out by dropshipping items and then progressing into having larger catalogs and warehoused inventory for higher profits. Even if you just start by selling items on eBay until you get some startup capital together for a wholesale order, there are plenty of ways to get your foot in the door and get the revenue stream flowing with a nominal investment.

3. Credit Management Sites

If debt and credit are your biggest problems, you may want to begin your financial rehabilitation by signing up for a credit monitoring and management site. These platforms help you rebuild your credit fast through strategic guidance and referrals to products and solutions that will expedite the process of raising your credit score and reducing your total debt load.

4. Blogging

Starting a blog and monetising it can give you something constructive to do in your spare time and can justify spending time on a hobby or topic that you’re interested in. While ad revenue and other sources of monetisation will come in slow in the beginning, after you’ve been consistently blogging for a few months you should start to see some supplemental income for your efforts.

Putting Your Skills to Good Use Online

Ultimately, becoming active in the world of online business is about using your potential talents and skill sets to generate more revenue that can be used to help your financial situation. With so much money floating around online and so many solutions that can help you better manage your funds, it only makes sense to use the internet for your financial benefit.

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring the blackberries, sugar and water to a boil.
