AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - Young patients got a break from treatment and recovery at the Children’s Hospital of Georgia - and a taste of magic and Mickey Mouse! Disney On Ice performers took time to read a story and bring stuffed animals to the kids.

They also made room-to-room visits. The children are battling various illnesses - and it gives them a chance to smile, despite what they’re going through.

“Going to Children’s Hospitals and hospital visits are so special, just because we have an opportunity to bring the Disney magic to the kids that might not be able to come to the Disney on Ice show and that’s just such an important thing to do for kids all around the world," said principal performer, Sophie Harding.

Afterwards, Mickey personally visited more children. Disney On Ice opens Thursday night at 7 pm at James Brown Arena.

The last show is Sunday. CLICK HERE to check out ticket prices.
