We first took the children to see Disney On Ice back in December and I’ve said more than once since then that it was a highlight of blogging so far for us – we loved the whole experience as much as the children so when we were invited to review the Disney on Ice Silver Anniversary Celebration this year we just couldn’t wait.
The children were beyond excited! They hadn’t been to Wembley Arena before and as soon as they saw the Disney On Ice Silver Anniversary Celebration advert on the front of the building they knew where we were heading! Unfortunately security confiscated my camera on our way in – so excuse the photos in this post as I had to take them with my phone.
We found our seats and were amazed to be just a couple of rows from the front. In some ways being high up is better as you get a good view of the whole stage although the characters are all further away. From our view we couldn’t always see the whole stage but all the characters were so close to us and it was easy to follow the story.
Disney on Ice is introduced by all our favourite Disney characters – Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald and Daisy Duck who all go on a world tour to see their Disney friends and some other countries too.
The music, choreography and skating was amazing. I spent the whole show in awe of the skaters and being able to act out a story, on ice, is no easy task. The whole show was fantastic. There were special effects smoke machines, snow falling from the top of the arena and so much else that it’s hard to even describe it all.
All children love Disney and whatever age you are this show would be just so much fun to watch. I thought because we had seen the previous show, which also featured The Little Mermaid and Frozen, that we might have been a little uninspired through those parts but I couldn’t have been more wrong.
Disney on Ice could never get boring. It is nothing short of magical and I know that however many times the children see it they will love it. The magic of Disney is classic and timeless – as is Disney On Ice.
Disclosure: We were invited to see the above show for the purpose of this review however all opinions are my own.
