It’s that time of year again! Disney on Ice is coming to a city near you. Well, in this case, near me.
I’m sure I went to see the show once or twice when I was a kid. I never took Sarah when she was young, but I did get the chance a few years ago to take her and her brother J. He was a bit nervous when the show first started. The arena was BIG and CROWDED and LOUD and he didn’t know what to expect. When the show started, he was sitting firmly in my lap, head buried in my shoulder. It took him a little while to become comfortable with the concept, but as soon as he saw Donald Duck out on the ice, he warmed up to the concept. By the end, he was complaining that he had to leave, he had such a great time.
I’m thrilled to have the chance to take J and Sarah to Disney On Ice next month. Treasure Trove is this year’s show, and it features new characters like Rapunzel and Flynn from TANGLED along with old favorites like Tiana, Cinderella, Jasmine, Ariel, Sleeping Beauty, Belle, Mulan and of course, the one who started it all, Snow White. In case your boy is not a princess fan (my boy LOVES the ladies), he’ll be thrilled to set sail with Peter Pan, Tinker Bell and that sneaky pirate Captain Hook and his pirate pals on an adventure beyond Never Land. In our case, we don’t have a character that isn’t a favorite.
The shows are the perfect length for young attention spans. As a former ice skater, I always appreciate the talent and skill that the performers bring to the production. I could barely skate holding a tissue in my hand, and in this show you have people doing it in wigs, costumes and Mickey heads. Impressive indeed.
