I can remember going to Disney on Ice years and years ago, although I don’t remember much of the show, Beauty & The Beast, I remember those light up toys and the snow cones, and how much fun it was. Now that the boys are older, I love being able to share the Disney On Ice experience with them, not only do they enjoy watching their favorite Disney characters skate around, but I am a huge fan of Disney and enjoy watching the show also.
We have previously seen Treasure Trove and Toy Story 3 on Ice, so when our family was invited to Disney On Ice: 100 Years of Magic last week I couldn’t wait to go. We had a couple gift cards so I planned our trip, instead of purchasing $25 toys at the arena, I shopped the sales at the Disney store and purchased cups and light up toys. I surprised them at the show and boy were they excited.
The show was at the TD Garden in Boston so we decided to take the train in, both the boys love riding the train, especially Tyler. Riding the train is a special day in itself. All Tyler talked about that day was taking the train to Boston, eating popcorn, and seeing his favorite character, Mickey Mouse.
Both of the boys had a great time at the show, we got to watch scenes from some of our favorite Disney movies: Mulan, Finding Nemo, Toy Story, The Lion King, Aladdin and the Incredibles, as well as Pinocchio & Beauty in the Beast. Most of the Disney princesses including Cinderella, Belle, Pocahontas, Ariel, and Jasmine were also were showcased.
The skaters were amazing, and the detail put into each costume was incredible. The boys were all in smiles watching their favorite characters skate all around. Both of the boys were familiar with most of the characters except for Pinocchio and Beauty and the Beast, I never realized that they never watched it until Jacob asked me who they were, we’ll defiantly have to pull out a couple of old VHS and watch them.
There was also a scene from It’s a Small World, one of the popular attractions at Disney World, with the skaters all dressed up in costumes from around the world. The boys nor my husband have ever been to Disney and didn’t realize the meaning of that scene, which I had to tell them about. Half way through the lights went out and all of the floats lit up light the Main Street Electrical parade in Disney.
At the end, all of the characters came out one last time to wave and say good bye, if you were close enough you could also shake their hands. Tyler wanted so badly to go up and hug Mickey Mouse.
Overall, we had a fantastic time at Disney On Ice, and seeing all of our favorite characters. I was a little worried about Tyler not knowing if he would sit over an hour, but he was so mesmerized by seeing his favorite characters and sat in his seat or on my lap the whole time.
