Every family can appreciate the magic of Disney. Their entertainment is absolutely kid friendly, with bright colors and plenty of silly action, yet not too childish in sarcasm, so adults can enjoy it too.
In the past few years of Disney laughs, my personal favorite has been Olaf’s “Summer” parody. I snicker every time I hear the line, “The hot and the cold are both so intense, put ‘em together. It just makes sense!”
“Winter’s a good time to stay in and cuddle, but put me in summer and I’ll be a…. Happy Snowman!”
As with the movies, parents and kids will be thrilled by the theatrics, dance, and song of Disney on Ice! This 120-minute program packs eight classic stories, including Finding Nemo 2, Frozen, The Lion King, Snow White, Aladdin, Toy Story, Rapunzel, and The Little Mermaid.
Of course, Mickey and Minnie will make their own special appearances, and children will even have the opportunity to interact within this fantasy realm made larger than life!
“In The Wonderful World of Disney On Ice, we’ve created a beautiful moment where an audience member gets to release a lantern with Rapunzel and Flynn at the beginning of “I See the Light,” says Director Patty Vincent. “It’s breathtaking to watch, and then Rapunzel and Flynn skate a beautiful duet with the lanterns glowing above them.”
In addition to this moment, the choreographer incorporated moments to encourage the audience to stomp along with Woody and join in a wave with Nimo.
Disney on Ice started in 1981 and never skimps on pomp when it comes to their costumes. The producers behind the show, Field Entertainment, have skated across six continents in 75 countries, with an approximate of thirty million fans enjoying the spectacle each year.
