We celebrated Valentine’s Day this year with an act of true love by Anna and Elsa appearing in Disney on Ice presents Frozen at Capital One Arena. The show was hosted by Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, with special guest appearances by beloved Disney Princesses and characters from favorites like Disney Pixar’s Toy Story, Finding Nemo and Disney’s The Lion King in a whirlwind opening ensemble.
Dazzling ice skating, special effects and unforgettable music magically transport you to wintry Arendelle where Anna and Elsa learn how dangerous Elsa’s icy powers can be. With dialogue and music from the movie, the show follows the sisters as they grow up and apart inside the closed gates of Arendelle. Following the coronation and Anna’s engagement, Queen Elsa has trapped the kingdom in an eternal winter. Anna sets out, with the help of rugged mountain man Kristoff, his loyal reindeer sidekick Sven and the hilarious snowman Olaf in a race to bring back summer. Kristoff dazzled the crowd with his flips and tricks and stole show with his skating moves in our opinion. As Anna tries to convince Queen Elsa to leave her ice palace and return to Arendelle she is hit with another blast of icy magic in the heart that only an act of true love can thaw. The larger than life inflatable marshmallow monster, as he is called around here, made an appearance to scare away Anna and her friends. He was another fan favorite with us. Ultimately they discover true love is the most powerful magic of all when Anna saves Queen Elsa from the evil Prince Hans.
My littles LOVE Frozen! I am not new to the Frozen fanaticism, but I was overwhelmed when the arena exploded into song during Let It Go! Hearing girls of all ages singing with such emotion was heartwarming. We have worked hard to put experiences before possessions and relationships before gifts so I was not super excited when my littles became princess obsessed and then full fledged Frozen fanatics! I soon realized though, that these princesses can still fit into our family’s values. They each present an opportunity to teach my littles about character and values. We have incorporated Disney performances, imaginative princess dress up and character crafts and coloring into our lives without sacrificing our sanity. Disney on Ice presents Frozen was no exception to the rule. There was merchandise everywhere, but we prepared out littles before hand that we had enough Frozen paraphernalia to last a lifetime and while they could look as much as they wanted, we would rather spend our money on future adventures.
Disney on Ice is an affordable Disney princess experience that celebrates these stories my littles love so much, but also exposes them to the art and skill of figure skating and live performances. We all enjoyed Disney on Ice presents Frozen more than Dream Big and Follow Your Heart because with only one story to focus on we see more from each of the characters. It was more like a live figure skating performance of Frozen instead of a couple scenes from a bunch of different stories. If you have littles who love Frozen this is the Disney on Ice for you!
