In ‘Disney on Ice,’ a grand world, after all

Leave it to Disney to create an evening of entertainment that not only includes snippets of scenes from 18 of the company’s animated classics, but also features nods to some favorite moments at its theme parks. All of this is presented on the ice at the TD Garden through Sunday with a cast of nearly 50 talented skaters who impress with flips, spins, and jumps.

The key to a successful ice show is the pace, and director Cory Obst keeps the proceedings moving swiftly from one story to the next. Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy serve once again as the evening’s emcees, but before you know it, Aladdin and his monkey, Abu, have conjured up that frisky genie. In the course of a flashy ­solo, one genie multiplies to 20, all of whom move through precision routines.
