Last night, March 9, we were able to attend Disney On Ice presents Worlds of Enchantment. It was probably the first time ever that we were that early to Disney On Ice so it was fun to actually see what happens at the beginning of Disney On Ice!
First of all, there were 3 and 5 minute warnings before the show started which was great because since we had arrived early, we decided to walk the hall area where they sell food and toys.
“Toy Story” started off the show followed by “The Little Mermaid.” There was about a 15 minute intermission and then “Cars,” ending with “Frozen.” I was most disappointed in “Cars.” I was excited to see what they would do with cars going around on the ice but they followed a different story with fewer characters (which makes sense because these cars were pretty big). “Frozen” never disappoints. I love the music and the story so I could probably watch it over and over.
One of the favorite parts of “Toy Story” for my family was the music and Woody flying with the kite. Any flying involved always gets kids excited and a little bewildered which is adorable. This version of “Toy Story” is quite long, about 30 minutes, which is probably a little too long for some kids but a little boy sitting near me was in a full on Buzz Light Year costume and enjoyed every single second of the show. This story is based off of “Toy Story 3.”
I’ll be honest, I missed most of “The Little Mermaid” because I had a crying child with me for the whole thing but if it’s anything like other shows, “The Little Mermaid” is always adorable, especially with Eric and Ariel. The version in this show is cut pretty short and is right before intermission.
The parking is always crazy downtown but right now they are working on the parking garage at The Gateway Mall. I don’t know about the South parking garage but the North parking garage is being worked on so you can park there for free this weekend!
