After years of hearing our friends talk about how much their families enjoy Disney on Ice, we took our two girls to see a show in our city last year.  That show set a precedence, because they talked about it all year long, and they couldn’t wait to go again this year!


This December, we had a chance to see “Disney On Ice: 100 Years Of Magic“.  This show was an impressive collection of Disney characters and movies throughout the years.  Last year’s show had focused mostly on newer Disney movies, such as Beauty and the Beast, Little Mermaid, Brave, and Tangled.  This year, I was pleasantly surprised to see characters like Pinocchio and Giminy Cricket, which brought me back to my childhood, plus plenty of others from The Incredibles to Mulan to Lion King.

The Master of Ceremonies is carried out by Mickey and Minnie Mouse, which my girls are always excited to see.  They come out throughout the show to introduce each new character or storyline.

The show features a wide variety of ice skating performances, all carried out by very talented skaters.  You can really tell that they put a lot of work into what they do, and we were impressed by the leaps, spins, flips, and more.

In addition to the work that the skaters do in the show, there are plenty of cool special effects, such as pyrotechnics, lots of fog, and even snow!

There are plenty of interesting props as well, including a shark, whale, dragon, and a variety of vehicles.

Disney has done a great job creating some really unique parts to the show.  One of our favorite characters in this show was Pumba, the warthog from Lion King.  This costume featured a skater on all fours in an adorable costume!

Disney on Ice kept my kids entertained for two full hours.  There is such a great variety throughout the entire show.  Some parts had my kids laughing – such as a funny skit from the Incredibles, while other parts had them on the edge of their seats – such as a dramatic part from the movie Mulan.  The skaters do a great part of engaging the audience.  Sometimes we were encouraged to clap along, and if there were characters on the sidelines, they were waving at kids in the audience.

Some of my tips for Disney on Ice:

~ Book early for good seats!
~ Give yourself enough time to park and get settled in (we have to park in a parking garage to get to our event center, so there may be a parking fee at your venue)
~ Our event center was pretty warm, but you can always come prepared with some light mittens or a hat.
~ There are lots of cool souvenirs, so bring some extra money.
~ You may want to have your child wear pajamas or a costume!  We went to a 7pm show and we knew our kids would fall asleep in the car on the way home, so it was convenient to dress them in something they could sleep in!
~ The show is 2 hours long with a 15 minute intermission.

We had a great time, and we are looking forward to go back next year!  We can’t wait to see what they have in store for next year’s show!
