My family was invited to the Opening Night of Disney on Ice and were super excited to attend. We have seen quite a few of the Disney on Ice experiences and every time it always feels the same; that there are not many places that the whole family can go and all equally enjoy. Disney on Ice is very much a show that does just that, a family production.
I was very impressed with the costumes in this particular production especially in the “Circle of Life” number. We always enjoy the storytelling, the voices of the real actors that we are all familiar with, and the couple skating; which all combined warm the heart even on the coldest of nights (and last night was pretty cold). The kids and I really enjoyed the show and enjoyed getting the chance to be reminded of all of their favorite Disney characters. It’s a great in between for families who have gone or take frequent trips to Disney or even a great place to surprise the kids with an upcoming trip announcement; mommy trick number 174.

Disclaimer: I received tickets for my family in turn for my real and honest review. I also wanted to thank Disney on Ice for the complimentary souvenir books we were given. The kids enjoyed reading through them before the show.
