Disney on Ice "Treasure Trove"

Friday, April 12, 2013

This stunning show highlighted stories from some of Disney’s movies and made sure that all of the princesses were seen by the end of the performance. We brought our very own little princesses (Lola & Malaysia) along with some princes (RJ, Boston & Trey. I wondered if the boys would be interested in the show, but after the opening act they were enthralled. They were mesmerized by all of the bright colors, great scenery, and even better ice skating.

Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy hosted the 2 hour performance and even with an intermission it went by very quickly. I was impressed by how quickly and seamlessly the team changed sets for each story. The kids didn't even have time to be cranky, as there was too much action on the ice to follow. Everyone, including the toddlers and grown-ups in our group enjoyed it.

The show kicked off with a fun warmup session with the red-clad superheroes from "The Incredibles" who lead the audience through stretches and other moves to get them pumped up for the energetic show.  The Disney stories began with scenes from "Alice in Wonderland" with the ever tardy White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee, and the Queen of Hearts and her army of skaters dressed up as the henchmen playing cards. The skater who played Alice, along with many of the other principal skaters, not only glide and dance on the ice, but do challenging jumps and spins, like in figure-skating competitions. The final story in the first half was scenes from "Peter Pan" complete with Captain Hook and Smee, the guy in green who doesn't want to grow up and Tinkerbell.  

The second half continued with a feast for the eyes and ears with  scenes from "The Lion King," "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," "Aladdin," "The Little Mermaid," and "Tangled."  The show included some magical effects such as the way the iced stage transformed quickly into a bright, colorful, ocean reef scene for "The Little Mermaid," along with Aladdin's flying carpet and a sky full of orange lanterns for "Tangled."  Personally, I loved the Little Mermaid stuff best, with the great dance routines and colorful, cleverly created costumes.

Oh, did I mention that what made this experience even more superb is that we had some of the most amazing seats (about 10 rows or less up from the floor, center stage) thanks to my daughter-in-laws connections... I had not been to an ice show since Sabriya was really young but definitely hope to go again and again with the grands.  Don't miss out on this performance!
