A HOST of Disney characters appear in an ice-dance spectacular heading to Liverpool next year.

The Wonderful World of Disney On Ice - skating at the city's Echo Arena from April 17 – 21 - promises a magical medley of classic and modern tales including Finding Dory, The Lion King, Frozen and many more.

Join Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse as they venture through a treasure-filled journey bound for heartwarming adventure featuring more than 50 Disney characters.

Feel the rush of the stampede as Simba learns to live by the motto of Hakuna Matata from the wise-cracking meerkat Timon and his warthog pal Pumbaa.

March alongside the seven dwarfs, as they whistle off to work to the catchy tune of 'Heigh Ho.' 

Be dazzled by the hilarious Genie, as he makes Aladdin’s wishes come true with a spectacular parade for Prince Ali.

You can also watch as the ice transforms into the wintry world of Frozen during Elsa’s emotionally powerful performance of Let It Go.

Plus, discover the true meaning of family with everyone’s favorite forgetful fish, Dory, as she searches the deep blue sea for her parents with a little help from Marlin and Nemo.

Producer Nicole Feld said: "What I like best about Disney On Ice is that we are privileged to bring classic and modern Disney and Pixar stories to hometowns around the world live on ice.

"In this production, our amazing creative team chose action-packed stories that really resonate with not only kids today, but with their parents as well."

Director Patty Vincent said: "In The Wonderful World of Disney On Ice, we've created a beautiful moment where an audience member gets to release a lantern with Rapunzel and Flynn at the beginning of I See the Light

"It's breathtaking to watch, and then Rapunzel and Flynn skate a beautiful duet with the lanterns glowing above them."
