It’s a Surreal World: Disney on Ice 2015

I will never get tired of watching Disney on Ice, a fascination I proudly share with my family. Reiniel is the reason why we need to be here, he was still in my womb when we got the chance to watch this six years ago. He cannot contain his excitment and has been reminding us about the show weeks before.DOI_Reiniel.jpg

I can still vividly remember that the star of the show was the ‘The Incredibles’ family. Can you guess what’s the most applauded segment this year?

Before we get to that, I will give you a peek on what is in store for you this year. The whole show is like reliving the magic of each Disney film.  The execution is impeccable and the production is awesome.

No better way to start the show than Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse! It is cool to see the dancers moving flawlessly with the rythm.

First act  is Disney’s 28th animated film, The little mermaid. Ariel, the main character, is a free-spirited mermaid who is willing to risk anything for his human love, Eric. She traded with Ursula, a Sea Witch, her enchanting voice for human feet.

I believe that this one is the most colorful presentation of all, even with the lights off, traslucent sea creatures come alive.

Second act is Tangled, a Rapunzel Story,  you will surely be mesmerized by the floating lanterns that were said to be released for her birthday every year.

Third Act was the timeless Beauty and the Beast. I heard some, probably older audience, sing along with the theme song with the same title “Beauty and the Beast” as they gracefully danced and conquered the whole ice rink.

Going back to my hanging question —Can you guess what’s the most applauded segment this year?  Did you say ‘Frozen’?  You are absolutely right!

This is the final and most applauded one!

The Oohhs and the Ahhs filled the coliseum as Sven and Kristoff entered the stage. From there, it felt like you are seeing the movie all over again with focus on the highlights and the songs that we fell in love with.

Olaf was a crowd pleaser, he captured the hearts of the audience as he sings ‘In Summer’ with the colorful flowers and butterflies dancing around him.

‘Let it go, let it go,
Can’t hold it back anymore
Let it go, let it go
Turn away and slam the door!’

The Coliseum was filled by the voices of little princesses, probably little princes too, like mine. You have to admit it, this song almost broke and numbed your ears when this animated film was released 2013, but during the performance, you will find yourself singing along 😀 The scene was intensified by snow falling down and fireworks from the hanging giant snowflake.

I have shared enough, but nothing will beat first hand experience. People from all ages brought home with them the Magic spell that nobody else but Disney can deliver. Personally, given the chance, I would love to watch Disney on Ice every year!

The show will run until January 3, 2016 –  a lot of chance to experience the Magic with your kids 🙂 It is worth it!
