REVIEW: Disney on Ice
This show does not disappoint with the amazing ice skating (how do they run
up and down stairs in those skates?), fun and familiar music, and laughs all
What do you get to see this time around?
Of course Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Daisy are there as your ever gracious
hosts and story leaders. Pinocchio makes an appearance. There is a brief
cameo made by Anastasia and Drizella, but no Cinderella. Ariel from The
Little Mermaid is there with her friends Flounder and Sebastian, handsome
Prince Eric and even Ursula, the evil sea witch, makes a dramatic
appearance. Next to appear are characters from Tangled. Rapunzel, Flynn
Rider (otherwise known as Eugene Fitzherbert) tell sing and skate their
story with an icy appearance by mother Gothel. Brave's Merida makes her
debut with Queen Elinor, and her silly triplet brothers. They saved the best
for last with Beauty and the Beast, bringing Belle, Gaston, and LeFou to the
ice with an incredible performance from the Beast himself!
What makes this one stand out from the rest? First, Brave is debuted and we
get to meet Myriad, the newest Disney princess character (she is a princess,
even if she is not a Disney princess as of yet) and she tells a tale that is
so different than any other princess story to date, truly inspirational!
Second, Ariel is one talented mermaid on ice. She wowed the audience with
her amazing moves and she does an unharnessed rope dance that left me on the
edge of my seat! Third, the villains appeared in each story, which is rare,
and may be a draw for the boy set. This show was not all glitter and pink,
so there is no reason boys and girls alike would not enjoy this show. There
were laughs to be had and sparkles in the eyes of all the children watching
their favorite characters come to life on the ice.
If your children enjoy Disney movies, they will enjoy Disney on Ice Rockin
