Disney is ready to return to Broadway in September 2021 with a few sweet deals!  This week, Disney on Broadway announced special offers and protections for fans looking to return to the famed New Amsterdam Theater in September.  Take a look at all of the offerings below:

  • Disney pays 100% of ticketing fees!  That's right - the ticket price is the ticket price. . .no surprise fees from Ticketmaster at the end of your purchase!
  • Free Date Changes and Cancellations - Exchanges and refunds are free for shows through August 7, 2022.
  • Double the Magic - Buy a ticket for The Lion King and Aladdin for one low price.  You don't even have to know your show dates just yet - those can be edited and added later!
I had the chance to get a backstage look at Disney on Broadway and the New Amsterdam Theater in New York City as part of the Disney Social Media Mom's Celebration in 2015 and the memories of that day still delight me.  I hope to visit Broadway at some point the future with my little ones and take in some of the magic!

About Disney's Return to Broadway (From Disney)




The Lion King returns to Broadway’s Minskoff Theater on September 14, 2021 while Aladdin resumes performances at Broadway’s glorious New Amsterdam Theater on  September 28, 2021. Tickets are on sale now.  Visit disneyonbroadway.com for tickets and information. 

As Disney on Broadway returns, it introduces a suite of added benefits that offers guests a flexibility unprecedented in Broadway history. 

These benefits, created with the guest experience in mind, include Disney paying 100% of Ticketmaster service and order fees; the freedom to exchange or even cancel tickets at no charge up to and including the day of performance; and Double the Magic, a two-show package, which offers the greatest savings with tickets for both shows starting at $149 total.  Broadway has traditionally offered its customers only two purchase models: advance purchase, ensuring performance date and seat location but offering no flexibility when plans change; or last-minute options such as TKTS or show lotteries, which offer greater value but preclude advance planning.  Disney on Broadway offers far greater flexibility, combining the best of both models for the first time ever.

“After 18 months of being apart we are thrilled to welcome our audiences back and are proud to introduce these unique benefits to make buying Broadway tickets risk-free, flexible and affordable,” said Thomas Schumacher President & Producer Disney Theatrical Productions. “Broadway’s reopening – before tourists fully return – will be the perfect time for us tri-staters to attend Broadway as shows will be more accessible than ever.”

The September 14th return of Broadway – kicked off by Hamilton, The Lion King and Wicked – was announced this morning in a joint appearance  on ‘Good Morning America.’  This rare alliance between Broadway’s three highest profile hits sends a message that Broadway is united in its commitment to ending a devastating period of hardship for the tens of thousands who make their living directly on Broadway shows and the tens of thousands in dependent industries.

 

Beyond Broadway, the North American tours of The Lion King and Frozen and international productions of five titles will be among the 20+ Disney Theatrical productions resuming performances in nine countries on four continents in 2021.

 

The New Amsterdam and Minskoff Theatres will follow New York State and CDC guidelines to ensure the safety of all actors, production staff, theatre employees, and audience members. As public health conditions and the State's guidance for performing arts and live entertainment changes, the theatre will remain flexible and adapt to applicable health protocols, such as face coverings, health screening, enhanced air filtration and ventilation, and rigorous cleaning and disinfection.
