Ice skating rink coming to Downtown Disney

Disney is planning to open an ice skating rink in Downtown Disney for the holidays.

The rink is being placed between the AMC Theatres and ESPN Sports Zone.

When it opens for limited operation on Oct. 23, it will help mark the DVD¬†release of Tinker Bell’s “Secret of the Wings.”

Then, starting Nov. 12, a holiday theme will take over as the rink becomes surrounded by a holiday village with themed chalets where guests can purchase seasonal foods and more.

Disney hasn’t yet posted skate rental fees. For more information, check out the blog at
