Disney On Ice is one of my favorite things to take my kids to. It’s almost like watching the movie except no screen. It sounds funny, I know, but I can’t stand screen time sometimes (because the kids always want it) so it’s nice to hear stories without the screen and without them asking for a screen.
Anyway, I had no idea what to expect as we arrived at the Vivint Smart Home Arena. As it was sponsored by Stonyfield YoKids, we got to hear about staying healthy and active. Then Mickey and Minnie came out and started the show. And from there, it was just spectacular.
I wasn’t sure how much the story would be changed and was pleased that the story basically stayed the same but a lot of details were taken out which was just fine with the kids and I. I wasn’t sure how they’d make some of the scenes and what they would use to make the scenes work but I was surprised every time about how seamless transitions were and how great the props and stages were for each scene.
My favorite part was the snow. It added a magically aspect to the story and it was so cute to listen to all of the kids ooh and aah over the magic of the snow the first time it fell.
While we were sitting in the lower bowl, I noticed many people sitting in the upper parts of the arena. I wasn’t sure how their seats would be as they seemed to be seated oddly but once it started, I noticed that the big screens were being used and the performance was being shown on the screens so everyone could see well. In fact, I noticed myself watching the screens more and more throughout the show so I could actually see the actors’ faces and expressions.
Overall, it was a wonderful performance. The ticket prices are a little higher but if your child loves “Frozen” at all, I would highly recommend it.
