The next Disney on Ice show -- "Passport to Adventure" -- will skate into the iWireless Center Nov. 14 through 17 for seven performances.

The ice spectacular features Disney favorites Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy and Daisy on a journey to the worlds of Disney's "The Lion King," "The Little Mermaid," "Peter Pan" and "Lilo & Stitch."

You can explore the Pride Lands with Simba, Timon and Pumbaa; voyage under the sea with Ariel and all her aquatic friends; tour London with Peter Pan and Wendy, before flying to Never Land; and travel to Hawaii to visit Lilo and Stitch.

"Passport to Adventure" features an international team of award-winning figure skaters, high-energy choreography and a colorful set that captures all four unique worlds, according to a release.
