Some young cancer patients received a royal day of pampering Tuesday thanks to the house of mouse.

"Disney on Ice" hosted the day of beauty for the young girls, which included facials, manicures and custom wigs.

The girls also got a chance to meet Rapunzel, the star of this year's Disney on Ice "Dare to Dream" event.

"They are going through enough for whatever reason it is: Alopecia, chemotherapy, sickle cell anemia, leukemia, whatever it is. They shouldn't have to pay and my dream which is funny Disney is 'Dare to Dream'...was to have this happen," said hairstylist Andrew DiSimone.

"For the Rapunzel on Ice they are going to give a percentage of the tickets to the free wig program with the American Cancer Society so we can keep on giving away wigs to young girls with cancer," said David Pulli of the American Cancer Society.

"Disney on Ice" partnered with the American Cancer Society for the event.
