Children at UCSF Children's Hospital had an afternoon of fantasy Tuesday, Feb. 17. Belle of "Beauty and the Beast" read stories in the playroom of UCSF Children's Hospital, with closed circuit TV links for children who couldn't leave their beds to come and watch. Cinderella, clad in her best ball gown, glided from room to room to visit the kids on the sixth floor of the Long wing, stopping from time to time to hug a child in the hallway. Prince Aladdin visited kids in their rooms on the seventh floor, accompanied by the large, purple, gentle Genie.

The characters are performers in Disney on Ice, appearing at three Bay Area arenas in February and March. Show dates are:

  • Feb 18 to 22, HP Pavilion, San Jose
  • Feb 25 to 29, Oakland Arena
  • March 3 to 7, Cow Palace, San Francisco
