Disney on Ice – Dare to Dream Review
Last night I loaded up the mini van and headed out for a two hour road trip (each way). I am in love with our new Honda Odyssey and taking it for its inaugural trip to see Disney on Ice proved that it will be a great family vehicle. My mom and I chatted while the kids in the second row played games, watched DVD’s and on the way home slept. But I digress – Disney on Ice – Dare to Dream was great!
If you didn’t realize my love of all things Disney – I think the fact that I took a four hour round trip road trip (on a school night mind you) with a 6 year old and a 5 year old should clue you in. We had a great time and really enjoyed the show. I was proud of my daughter – she managed to stay awake for the whole show this year! It’s hard for little ones who go to bed at 7pm to stay functioning through a show that doesn’t start until 7pm but they both did great (maybe the two bags of cotton candy we purchased at intermission played into that?!?)
This was our second time see a Disney on Ice production and it did not disappoint. I think my son would have preferred a show that didn’t focus on just princesses but he watched wide eyed anyways.
I love that both shows we have seen have been hosted by Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy – its fun to see the classic characters even if they aren’t the main performers.
The first half of the show consisted of The Princess and the Frog, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and the first part of Cinderella. Take a peek at quick video I took below (find more on my Facebook page here):
The second half finished the story of Cinderella and featured Tangled. I have decided after two shows that I LOVE the finale and in my opinion it is the best part of each show (but I guess that’s what a finale by definition is supposed to be right?).
This was my moms first Disney on Ice experience and she enjoyed it – her favorite part of the performance was Tangled. Boo Boo loved Cinderella as that is her favorite princess. I wager that Buddy’s favorite was Tangled as well as it had a lot of action (what boy doesn’t love sword fights and ice skating horses?!?).
I highly recommend attending one of the upcoming showings of Dare to Dream in Portland (see dates and times below) or checking the Disney on Ice website for a show near you.
