Disney’s ‘Road Trip Adventure’ skates into Spokane Arena

“It’s the first time we’re taking the show in this part of the country,” Starr said. “Disney on Ice fans will enjoy this show since it’s the most interactive show I’ve ever been part of,” Starr said. “When Mickey and Minnie Mouse drive their magic mobile around the ice sometimes fans end up in the car.
