Disney On Ice presents Frozen was a surprise for my kids - and I'm not usually very good at keeping surprises from them! We went out for dinner with a friend, and then I suggested the four of us go for a drive. Maggie really wanted to go home and go for a walk, although she said she would ride her bike. I told her we'd see. As we pulled into the Palace, Maggie started getting excited. I asked her what might be going on at the Palace. Our friend suggested a basketball game. Nope.
The YoKids intro was different, but it got both of my kids out of their seats and moving around (which I think they needed after adjusting to the shock of where we were!). Disney On Ice always delivers a spectacular show, and last night was no exception. It was a wonderful retelling of the instant Disney classic, Frozen. Before the real story started though, there was a really fun intro of some famous movie pairs, including Marlin, Nemo, and Dory, Pumba & Timon, and Jack's favorite - Woody & Buzz Lightyear. Oh, and of course princesses: Snow White, Cinderella, Rapunzel, and their beaus.
Our seats were wonderful, and if I wore a fitbit, it would have exploded last night from all those stairs to get down almost to the ice where our seats were. Next time I'll schedule the potty break, diaper change, and snack run a little better so I don't have to do the stairs four times, including one carrying the three-year-old. Ahh.. but after a fun late night, I digress again.
The show was a wonderful highlight of the most popular songs and lines from the movie, and I especially loved the young Anna & Elsa, Sven the reindeer, and the trolls. I was also grateful that the special effects and mini firework-flashes of Elsa's magic weren't loud or scary for my little guy.
For all the buildup to this show - it truly was great. Want to stay up-to-date on all things Disney on Ice related? Join Disney On Ice Insiders' Experience. There's still time to get your seats, or a suite with friends, and enjoy while they're in the Detroit area this weekend.
