Disney on Ice Canceled Sunday Due to Eagles Game

Comcast Spectacor canceled all three shows at the Wells Fargo Center Sunday because the Eagles are playing next door at Lincoln Financial Field.

If you had tickets for Disney on Ice at the Wells Fargo Center Sunday, you're out of luck. All three shows for Jan. 5 have been canceled because of the Eagles playoff game taking place next door at Lincoln Financial Field.

Comcast Spectacor, which announced the cancelations Monday, said tickets can be exchanged for the remaining shows, which are 7pm tonight, 11am and 7pm Friday and 11am, 3pm and 7 pm on Saturday. Or you can get a refund.

Comcast didn't say why they canceled the Sunday shows, but we suspect the combination of traffic, parking and Eagles fans tailgating for the 4pm game against the Seahawks could have made for a messy mix between families and the occassionally rowdy fans headed to the Linc. Sunday's Disney shows were supposed to be at 11am, 3pm and 7pm.

We guess there might be a few moms, dads, grandparents and even kids who were torn that the Eagles game was going to conflict with their Disney plans. For them, the cancellation comes as a reflief.

But if your kids were looking forward to the show and you're looking for something else to treat them to on Sunday, there are still plenty of things going on, including a few holiday events that are entering their final weeekend. If you are specifically looking for a show, Shrek, The Musical  is playing at the Walnut Street Theatre through Sunday, though it looks like you have better choice of tickets for a group at the Saturday evening performance.

Or, find a bargain. It's the first Sunday of the month, which is a popular day for local museums to offer free admission and other family-friendly activities. Make sure to check in advance, however, since not all venues schedule those events in January.
