A quick look at four "Disney on Ice" skaters.

Carl Linamen

Age: 24

Hometown: Ashville

Look for him as: A starfish in "The Little Mermaid," a beach boy in "Lilo & Stitch" and a pirate in "Peter Pan."

Quote: "Everybody who is in the show has basically put their whole life into skating, but it's worth it. And there are always opportunities to move up, which is great."

Hometown: Erie, Pa.

Look for her as: Atina, Ariel's sister, in "The Little Mermaid," a pirate in "Peter Pan" and an animal shelter staffer in "Lilo & Stitch."

Quote: "The best part of touring with the show is getting to see different cities every week, you never get bored. You get to travel so much, and I have seen so many different places."
