You can get the magic of Disney even if you do not live near a Disney park with Disney on Ice! We have been to Disney as a family, but this was our first time attending the Disney on Ice and being that it is Disney, I have to admit, I had some pretty hight expectations for it. Well, let me tell you that I was completely blown away by it! All expectations definitely exceeded. The show was amazing!
The show was full of skaters doing acrobatics and stunts and the best part was that it included all of our favorites like Moana, Buzz Lightyear, Coco and of course Mickey and the gang. It included all of our favorite Disney music. My girls and I love to sing-a-long to Disney songs and the music brings it all together. It became a sing-a-long with the crowd and that just added to the experience.
To maximize the fun with young kids, check out my below top tips for Disney on Ice.
Embark on a quest with Mickey Mouse and pals as they follow Captain Hook’s treasure map for clues to find Tinker Bell after he attempts to capture her magic. Journey across the Marigold Bridge with Miguel from Disney Pixar’s Coco into the magnificent and mystical Land of the Dead and discover a vibrantly colorful performance with skeletons atop sway poles dancing over the audience in a beautiful cultural celebration of family. Travel to the wintry world of Arendelle and sing along with Elsa as video projection creates a kaleidoscope of crystals to help build her ice palace. Witness Belle lift into the sky as the enchanted chandelier comes to life high over the ice for onlookers seated above and below. Demonstrate the power of teamwork when Buzz Lightyear, Woody and Jessie recruit the Green Army Men and the audience for a daring rescue in Andy’s room. Board the Jolly Roger and laugh hysterically as the hilarious pirates flip, tumble, and twist on air tracks, stilts and more in an effort to showcase their talents for Captain Hook. Sail away with Moana on her daring voyage across the ocean and bravely encounter the fiery wrath of Te Ka. And make memories with your whole family during Aladdin and The Little Mermaid as the search party becomes an all-out celebration.

My favorite of the night was the Coco performance, both my girls LOVED Moana. And we caught Dad singing along to his favorite Aladdin.
Here are some tips for Disney on Ice with young kids, before you head out to the show.
- Stay Warm – It will be cool near the ice so don’t forget your sweaters at home. It was 90 degrees outside so I didn’t dress my kids warm, but I did bring them some light sweaters and they were perfect throughout the show.
- Wear your ears. Let the kids wear their Disney costumes – Disney on Ice is the perfect place to wear your Minnie Ears and also fun for the kids to wear their Disney character costumes. Keep in mind there are no costumes allowed for ages 14 and older.
- Get Tickets Early to get the best Seats – Don’t let the show sell out! The sooner you book your seats, the better the seats you will get. Pricing will vary depending on where you want your seats with the front row seats sold at a premium price. Check Ticketmaster for your tickets.
- Bring Home The Fun – From Moana to Coco to a Mickey glow in the dark bubble maker there are a ton of fun options for the kiddos to bring home to remember the day.
- Know What To Expect – Each show varies in time but you should expect to be at the venue for at least 2 hours, allowing time for parking and getting to the venue and then there is also a 15-20 minute intermission.
