Disney skates into Civic Center

November 19, 2002

Albany- Hundreds of families crowded into the Civic Center greeted by life-sized characters right off of the Disney movie screen.

They may have walked into a building but they entered a "Jungle Adventure", on ice.

Tuesday's opening show was sold out, organizers even opened up extra seating. Disney definitely drew a crowd to the Civic center...something the organizers want to make a tradition.

"Disney says family, so why shouldn't they be here. So, we asked, and asked and they finally came this way, and we're delighted that the community has said oh we really want this, and of course we have come out in big numbers. I'm absolutely delighted and it will be easier to get them back," says Civic Center Promotions and Marketing manager Tony Ford.

Parents say if Albany continues to book big shows, they will be sure to be in the building.

"We're tired of Valdosta getting everything, so we needed something in Albany," says Pamela Green.

If Tuesday's show sets the standard, the Civic Center is skating in the right direction.

If you want to see the show and haven't gotten your tickets yet... you're in luck. Organizers opened up several hundred extra seats for the morning and evening performances Wednesday.
