Happy birthday Disney, looking hot on the ice there… Yes, to mark a century since a cartoon mouse changed the entertainment business forever, and Disney’s ice-skating extravaganza has returned to the UK and it’s selling like hotcakes.

Hats off to Disney for riding that wave. And while we couldn’t think of anything worse than listening to hundreds of little girls dressed in questionably fire-safe Elsa costumes belt out Let It Go in a confined space, […]
