I’ve loved Disney on Ice ever since I was a little girl. When I was 12 years old my mum took me to see Disney on Ice for my birthday. Yes, it’s been going that long, although it was a little different to what it is now. You can imagine, I couldn’t wait to take my little ones. The boys have been a few times and absolutely love Disney on Ice as you can read. As Frozen is Aria’s favourite film, and the boys aren’t as keen on this as other Disney films, they declined so Aria and I could have a wee night out together. Which was lovely as we don’t get to do it often. Aria got all dressed up in her Anna costume and off we headed to see Disney on Ice presents Frozen.
When we got inside we met the lovely Elsa and Anna, who sounded exactly like Elsa and Anna and looked the part. They were really friendly and spent a few minutes chatting with the children, Anna commented on Aria’s hair being just like hers. Aria isn’t too keen on characters in real life, so was really wanting to stay and chat. I thought they were fab. Heading to the VIP room for a seat, a drink and a great view of the vast ice rink before it was time to start the show.
Mickey and Minnie opened the show after some dancercise from the Mouseketeers. Disney are all about promoting fun and exercising, engaging the audience into some fun moves. Mickey brought in some of his buddies, Donald , Goofy, etc to get the crowd warmed up and then Aria’s face when all the Disney Princesses came out on the ice. Money doesn’t buy this type of excitement or that look of sheer delight. She actually squealed with joy. I may have welled up a little. Disney know how to put on a show.
Not ideal to photograph, but I tried. The memories live on. I bought Aria a Frozen snowcone which she was desperate to have. It wasn’t the cheapest, but you expect souvenirs to be expensive at a show like this, I think. Plus, you can take the cup home and re-use. This actually sticks out in my memory of the time I went as a child and my mum bought me one, more than the actual show.
Disney, really did bring Frozen to life. Elsa, Anna and all the characters danced, sang and acted their way through the story of Frozen. We were entranced, enthralled and belted Let it go out along with the rest of the theatre. It was emotional and entertaining. Definitely one of our favourite Disney on Ice shows ever and one that I will never forget. Aria sang her wee heart out, pointing at all the characters as they skated onto stage. Her eyes as wide as saucers.
The trolls were one of my favourite characters of the show and they looked great. The magic of Disney even made it snow indoors, how cool is that. There was a huge marshmallow monster that inflated on the ice and breathed out smoke, the one that Elsa creates. The effects were spectacular.
Then there were huge cheers and the finale, just wonderful. I cannot recommend this show enough, if you can go see it you should. Or another Disney on Ice show, honestly, read the rest of my review on here, it is wonderful. Check out Disney On Ice for more information on the tours.
