Mickey and Minnie Mouse surprised youngsters last night at Landmark Mall ahead of the ‘Disney On Ice celebrates 100 Years of Magic’ show to be held at the Qatar National Convention Centre from June 13 to 16.
Mickey and Minnie Mouse along with their famous Disney friends Goofy, Pluto, Donald and Daisy Duck are already in Qatar to stage eight shows.
In a fun and entertaining “Meet & Greet”, children were thrilled to have their pictures taken with their favourite Disney characters. The colourful and lively event also featured award-winning Disney music, face painting and exclusive autograph cards signed by the Disney superstars.
Waiting in the queue alongside her eight-year-old son Alexandre, Brenda Paradela, said: “My son is so excited to meet his favourite Disney characters; it is not often that you get to see the real Mickey and Minnie mouse.
“Since we found out about Disney On Ice coming to Doha, we wasted no time in purchasing tickets for all of our friends and family. It is not often that these kinds of events come to Doha and we knew tickets would sell quickly. We can’t wait,” she added.
Landmark Mall’s Manager, Walid Khoury, said, “We are delighted to be part of the ‘Disney On Ice celebrates 100 Years of Magic’ celebration. The Landmark event was very different to anything we have ever hosted before and proved to be a real triumph. It was an exciting experience for Disney fans of all ages and the perfect lead up to the show. We hope to welcome Mickey and Minnie mouse back to Landmark alongside their friends for future events.”
