As I write this I want to cry as it's the beginning of the end for my kids and their adventures with Disney on Ice. Disney on Ice presents itself as a traveling show of wonder and magic that brings a glowing smile to the faces of all those who attend. We however have hit that age bluff in a child's life where things that are magical and fill the little one's with wonder become "too little" for them. Now we have hit the age of video games and phones, which came quicker than I could have anticipated. I have spent the last 6 years looking forward to the arrival of Disney on Ice to Sacramento each year, with all my family favorites and all the amazing athletics it's never disappointed. I remember the first time I got to take them, they were both just out of diapers and Mickey was our daily life. They would dress up, dance and sing along to every song. The vignettes were just long enough to tell a story, even though at times they would forget half and start to sing or run. I still see the magic in the faces and smiles, but the overt singing and dancing along with mom has transitioned to singing when no one is looking and "OMG Mom seriously!" By the end of the show however she was singing along, Anna and Elsa can pull anyone into "Let it go".
This year and this show Disney on Ice presents Dream Big really did provide a wonderful farewell show for our little family. Dream Big was the perfect mix of my classic Disney favorites and their newer Disney favorites. Tinkerbell is our guide as we traverse the stories of almost every Disney princess, it is definitely a star studded show. With Cinderella, Aurora, Tiana, Snow White, Ariel, Jasmine, Elsa & Anna all the major characters were covered giving you a princess smorgasbord that covers all the ages. Each character was highlighted with a vast majority of the second half dedicated to a family favorite the sisters of Arendale. From "Under the sea" to "Do you want to build a Snowman" the musical numbers do not disappoint. I also love the costumes, the color the lighting the whole show is so over the top it makes it absolutely perfectly Disney. From bubble machines, to snow machines and a firework show at the end they went all out this time. I would have to say my personal favorite part of the night was the "Be our Guest" number.
Take them before you miss the chance, each moment that Disney gives you to play magic with your children is one that you will look back and cherish as I do. Cherish the "Under the sea" sing-along and the joy on their face when you buy them the overpriced snow cone that they get terribly sticky eating. Smile when they get so excited over the "flying" skaters and their favorite character. Laugh when they are so tired afterwards that they melt into their car seats on the way home and wake up randomly to talk about how they saw Mickey and how amazing it all was. Childhood seems like an eternity when you are in it, but when you are the parent its gone far too soon. Enjoy the Magic, enjoy your family time and enjoy Disney on Ice.
