Opening night tickets for my family were provided by Feld Entertainment.
As you likely already know, the Smith family are HUGE Disney fans. We are Disney Vacation Club members and visit Walt Disney World at least twice a year. We pretty much eat, breath, and live Disney, so when Disney on Ice comes to town, we always make sure to go see it. This year, thanks to Feld Entertainment, we were able to attend opening night. The theme for this show was Dream Big, and I am not going to lie, it made me tear up a few times. We go every single year, and here is why.
The Show Changes
This is one of my favorite aspects of Disney on Ice. You won’t be seeing the same show year after year because the show and theme changes. This means that the characters involved in the show change as well. We love the variety that Disney on Ice brings. I think we have seen at least six different shows recently, and loved them all.
We all know Disney has a way of making us cry and feel things. It is no different when it comes to Disney on Ice. Their shows are always making me tear up – especially when I watch the faces of my girls as they take it all in. Frozen is one that gets me EVERY.SINGLE.TIME. When Anna sacrifices herself for Elsa? Maybe it is because I have two girls but this one really gets me. The lessons in all of the Disney shows are about being yourself, staying strong, and believing. Who doesn’t love that?
You See Your Favorite Characters
Because Disney on Ice changes their shows, that means you get to see a variety of your favorite characters as you go over the years. Disney introduces more of their hit characters as well – I am dying to see the show that Moana has been added to! They feature the classics like Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, and Daisy Duck as well as all of the princesses like Rapunzel, Snow White, and Sleeping Beauty. This year, we were all excited to see more of Aladdin and Jasmine, as well as Maleficent and Sleeping Beauty, than we have in the past.
The Skaters are Super Talented
I genuinely enjoy sitting back and watching the skaters perform during the Disney on Ice shows. These guys know what they are doing, I mean, they are professionals. Seeing all of the jumps and spins blows my mind! They are all ridiculously talented to the point where I have caught myself gasping – on several occasions. I admit, one of my favorite things to watch is when the princes pick up the princesses and twirl them around (talk about upper body strength!). It isn’t easy to ice skate and do these tricks – but it especially isn’t in costumes. Think of the characters like Olaf and Sebastian that are in bulky costumes from head to toe.
The Treats & Merchandise
I think my girls’ favorite part about Disney on Ice is getting to pick out treats and a souvenir. They enjoy getting some popcorn or a slushie and watching the show. There is always a lot of merchandise to choose from as well. My daughters tend to lean towards the spinning lights, but there are also necklaces, stuffed animals, and other fun items. They are a tad pricey, but we always splurge when it comes to Disney. Hey, you only live once!
When you go to @disneyonice, you buy a ridiculously expensive snowcone in a Mickey Mouse head just because! We braved a snow storm to get here and can't wait to enjoy the show! . . . #DisneyonIce #instadisney #disneygram #syracuse #DreamBig #Disney #NewYork #SnowStorm #bravedthesnow #winter #winterweather #snowcone #disneyfood #disneytreats #instafood #ad
