Want to add a touch of magic to your life this weekend? A trip to Disney On Ice will certainly brighten up this glum and dreary day! A fun day out for Disney lovers and families of all ages is promised!
Disney On Ice returns to its Irish home in Dublins City West Hotel with many of our favourite Disney characters featuring in the show. The City West Hotel is a fantastic venue to host this spectacular show and it is easily accessible by car and also on the Red Luas. It runs from Thursday 13th to Sunday 16th November so you better hurry if you want to catch the most ‘Frozen’ show in town!
Being a Disney lover and a huge fan of Disney On Ice since I was little I was thrilled when I got to go see 100 Years Of Magic a few weeks ago in Manchester with my little cousin Maggie and my Auntie Mairéad.
The best thing about this years show is that there is such a wide range of Disney characters involved. Some years it’s all about the princesses and half way through the show you see the little boys getting a bit restless. This year there truly is something for everyone.
Unfortunately Elsa and Anna, from Frozen, do not appear in this years Disney On Ice but I reckon they have a little more ice skating practice to do. Hopefully we will see them next year!
The show begins with one of the famous Disney Princesses and a simplified version of her story. Later on she is joined on stage by her princess friends for a medley of their theme songs.
As the show continues we meet many fun and exciting characters from both classic Disney movies and Disney Pixar movies. The crowd was especially pleased when Woody and his friends from Toy Story came out to play!
Disney On Ice is such a fun thing to do with your family or friends and the talent of the skaters is excellent. I had to cover my eyes a few times when there was a big jump or someone was flung into the air! Luckily there were no accidents. You can tell that the performers are very well trained and know exactly what they are doing. Simply flawless.
If you are bringing a little girl I highly recommend that you let her dress up in her princess costume. Of course, the boys should dress up as well in their Buzz Lightyear costume or whoever their favourite character is. I even saw some kiddies dressed up as non-Disney characters and that’s okay. It’s their big day out and you want to make it exciting and as special as possible for them.
There are many stalls at Disney On Ice with all sorts of magical merchandise that kids immediately run too. Be prepared to spend a small fortune on a bag of popcorn or a light up wand. The merchandise is a little over priced but it’s all part of the magic of the show to have a crown or a special princess drink.
Tickets for Disney On Ice start at €17.50 and are available on Ticketmaster.
I hope your time at Disney On Ice is as magical and as special as mine was! Enjoy! 🙂
