My children have been talking about going to watch Disney on Ice for several weeks before we went :) and we were excited to be at the show on the opening night. The doors to the event at the Rogers centre opened at 6 pm and the program cheerfully started at 7 pm. The show started with the story of Princess Tiana from Princess and the frog. It was a little distractive with people coming in late and trying to find their seats especially since the seats at Rogers Center are small.
The story of Princess Tiana was my least favourite part of the show. My children were enjoying it, although I am not sure how much of the story they followed because it was a while ago that we watched this Disney movie. It would have been nice to have watched Aladdin or something else instead of Princess and the frog :)
Cinderella was the second story of the show, which we all enjoyed. The familiar story of Cinderella was well presented. We enjoyed watching the beautiful horse carriage and the colourful ball. There was a little break for the ice to be cleaned and for us to stretch our legs, use the washroom and get some snacks. The prices of almost everything that was sold at the show was $12; despite the price almost everyone there including us :) got a souvenir.
After the break was Tangled, this was our favourite Disney on Ice Dare to Dream performance. I think you would agree with me :) It was vibrant, beautifully presented with lots of lovely special effects such as the lantern. The skating and acrobatic moves were remarkable. Tangled was the first movie my son watched at the theatre and both my children have watched it many times. This Disney story is one of our favourite so I could see that my children were excited when they were watching. It was cute when Maximus the horse in skates appeared :) The costumes were very creative.
The finale was grand indeed. We met all the Disney couples beautifully dressed in shimmering white clothing. My daughter was super excited, she was telling the names of all the couples. The presence of Goofy, Donald, Mickey and Minnie as hosts were a lovely idea because they gave the opening remarks of each part of the show. Mickey and Minnie were also on the shiny ice floor. Disney on Ice Dare to dream is a fabulous show, which was a little over 2 hours with the break.
Glad I got the opportunity to see the show with my family and to host the giveaway for another family in Toronto to attend the show.
