Do you remember going to Disney on Ice as a kid? I do. I remember the feeling of sitting in my seat and waiting for the show to begin. I remember holding my light-up spinner and looking around to see the lights in a sea of darkness. I remember the magic and I can honestly say taking my kids was even more magical.
My kids have birthdays on January 4th and 10th so we decided to take them to see Disney on Ice: Dare to Dream as one of their presents. To be honest, I think I was more excited than they were at first. How could they possibly understand the magic of it through a quick commercial teaser. There is nothing like actually being there experiencing it firsthand.
We purchased souvenirs, grabbed some food and sat down to anxiously await the start of the show.
The show features stories from five Disney classics (Cinderella, Beauty & the Beast, Tangled, Frozen, and Moana) where the characters had to dig deep within themselves to find courage and face a challenging situation. No goal is too far out of reach when you find the strength and believe in yourself.
The minute the lights went off and the music started, their eyes lit up. They were jumping up and down with excitement as the skaters entered the ice and some of their favorites joined the party.
The skaters were phenomenal and the routines were flawless. My favorite part of the show was probably Tangled because the skaters were AMAZING and the tricks while suspended in the air were unreal. I
We had the best time ever and to be honest, I had to fight back tears a few times (pregnancy hormones). It was just so magical and made me feel so happy to experience it with my kids. It also made me want to plan a trip to Disney World but that’s a story for another day.
For all my Cleveland peeps, Disney on Ice: Dare to Dream is still at the Q until Sunday, Jan 14th with great seats still available! For everyone else, check the tour schedule here!
