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.

  6. 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!

    1. 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!!

  20. 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!
