Disney on Ice #DisneyOnIceInsider

Hurrah, we did it!!  Our first time ever to see Disney on Ice.  The show was held at the Palace of Auburn Hills in Auburn Hills, Michigan.  That's where the Detroit Pistons play.  Hubby's been there to see both concerts and basketball games, but I never have, so I was excited to see the venue.  It's very modern and spacious, and the seating was nice for seeing the floor.

Disney on Ice before the curtains opened
The show was spectacular, as all things Disney are, and had a ton of beloved characters making their way out to the ice.

A wide array of favorite characters made their way to the stage!
I was very pleased that some of my favorites made it to the floor. You can see the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland in the background (on the right). I loved that role in the Disney movie, and he had some mad skating skills on the floor too.

Pinocchio and Geppetto made it to the party
Many of the classic favorites like Pinocchio made an appearance.

Some of the Disney Princess favorites.
Of course a good number of the beautiful princesses and their princes were there, and they performed some very lovely routines.


There was also a segment that took you to different locales. Hawaii was one of the places shown, and it looked just lovely in Disney form even (not that I want to go to Hawaii or anything...yes, I do).

A variety of different cultures and countries around the globe were showcased as well.

Part of the Toy Story Cast Made it to the Floor
As the stories continued, there were some surprises along the way, which I won't reveal here in case you want to go see the show, but I will say that the crowd roared when the Toy Story gang made their way to the floor.


It was a super fun show, very well designed, and the skaters all did wonderful on the ice.


The show we saw was on opening night.  If you are interested in going, Disney on Ice will be in Auburn Hills, Michigan through  March 23, 2014. If you don't live in the area, check the website to see if they will be coming to a city near you: http://www.disneyonice.com

You can also follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.

I remember taking my Daughter many years ago to an Ice show. It wasn't Disney and I can't remember what it was. How fun!!

Christy Maurer said...

How fun! I have never been. I'm sure my daughter would still want to go, but Kyle not so much lol. Maybe when I have grandkids...In a LONG time lol! Glad you had a good time :)

Kristie said...

I'm so glad you made it and enjoyed it! We're going to the 11:00 show tomorrow and it'll be our first time too. (We won tickets-yay!) How long does it last? Just curious-we're thinking of hitting up The Rainforest Cafe afterwards, but still need to be home for Girl Scouts-lol!

Manzanita said...

I am remember my first Disney On Ice experience when I was in 2nd grade! We saw Toy Story on ice and It was amazing! It's a great experience for kids and adults alike <3

Been toying with taking my girls here and looked like so much fun :)

Kristi Maloney said...

Yeah! Glad you guys were able to go and that it was a super fun show. It sure looked like it! Great pics!

mail4rosey said...

It was about two hours with the intermission. I didn't know there was a Rain Forest Cafe close by. That was my first time in the area, it was late though for us, and even later since it was a school night (and a loooong drive). Totally worth it to make the late night exception though, and it was fun. :) I know you're going to have an awesome trip, and hurrah for the win!!

Our Neck of the Woods said...

This looks so fun! I've never seen a show on ice before like this, but I've always wanted to.

Chelsea Olivia said...

I went to see Disney on Ice when I was young and LOVED it. It was the coolest thing to be amongst my favorite Disney characters!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

When I was pregnant with the twins we went to see it, and sadly, what I remember most was this really rude guy in the parking lot who roughly shoved me out of the way to get on the bus that was transporting to the parking garage. My oldest enjoyed the show though!

Cindy Batchelor said...

I still have never seen disney on ice. Looks like I'm really missing out!

My daughter is four, and I would love to take her to see disney on ice sometime in the near future. I think I may have to actually go to Orlando though, because they don't seem to be going many other places in Florida

Virginia Higgins said...

Karen Koblan said...

OMG my daughter would love this! She's obsessed with Mickey and Minnie. We'll have to check it out.

Looks like they had another great performance this year! I used to go every year when I was younger. I would love to go again, I just don't have the time!

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

Everything Disney is amazing! I love Walt Disney for his insight and for his creativity that still lives on year after year. My 1dd is heading to Disneyland soon but I can't go.... boo hoo. That is okay, I have a more worthy responsibility to take care of first, huh? ♥

Shop with Me Mama said...

awesome! I have always wanted to take my kids to Disney on Ice! Looks like so much fun!

Sandra McCollum said...

My girls want to see this when it comes to town, maybe we will. It looks great.

Robin said...

My mom spent the bulk of The Olympics speculating what those skaters did when their Olympic careers ended. I should tell her that they perform in shows like Disney On Ice... of course.

Pam said...

My kids would have been all over Disney on ice when they were younger. It looks like you all had a wonderful time.

Lawna Noe said...

Petro Neagu said...

It does look spectacular indeed but I guess it's supposed to, we're talking Disney after all. I could use some fun time with my daughter right now, I feel a bit trapped with all the work I have to do.

I remember going to Disney on Ice as a young child. I got picked from the audience by Snow White to come out and participate. It was a great moment in my childhood.

Oh, I can still vividly remember how my daughter used to be a huge fan of Disney on Ice. She feels she has outgrown it, though. But I still am enchanted by it.
