Tickets for Disney on Ice: 100 Years of Magic, to be presented at the Qatar National Convention Center next month, will go on sale at noon on Monday, May 6, organizers have announced.
UPDATE | 4:18pm

UPDATE | 3:25pm
Disney on Ice has said it is experiencing “technical difficulties” with ticketing both online and at its Virgin stores in Landmark and Villaggio malls. In a statement, organizers said:
We have spoken with our ticketing partner Virgin Megastore and they have assured us that tickets will be available online at www.virginmegastore.qa (and) in Villaggio Mall and Landmark Mall before the close of business. We do apologise for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
UPDATE | 2:07pm, May 6, 2013
As of 2pm Monday, the Virgin Megastore at Villaggio mall appears to be the only place to buy tickets to the show.
Virgin at Landmark told Doha News that they had not yet received the tickets, and did not know when they would start selling them. Neither Virgin’s website nor the Disney on Ice site have updated information about buying tickets online.
Have you had any luck?
Seven performances will be held at the QNCC from June 13 to June 16.
Tickets can be bought at Virgin Megastores in Villaggio and Landmark malls or online here. Regular seats start at QR150, but will sell for QR125 until May 15. Tickets are also priced at QR250, QR350, QR500 (VIP), and QR1000 (rink-side) per person.
There is no special price for children, but kids under two years old who will sit on parents’ laps are not required to have a ticket.
This will be Disney’s first iteration of 100 Years of Magic in the Middle East, and will feature all the favorite characters of old and new, including the Lion King, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Woody and Nemo.
It will also be among the largest, with engineers at the QNCC slated to freeze some 48,000 liters of water into a 15,000 sq m ice rink.
