My family and I had a great time at Disney On Ice on Wednesday night at the Eagle Bank Arena in Fairfax, Virginia. I had been looking forward to it for quite a while but I didn’t tell my girls until the day before. Otherwise they would constantly be asking “Are we going to Disney On Ice today?!”. Everything Disney does is great, so I knew I would enjoy the show but watching the joy on my girls faces is what I love the most. We’ve been to a few different Disney On Ice shows and Follow Your Heart definitely did not disappoint!
Follow Your Heart has a couple of aerial performances that are really unique. When I asked my oldest daughter Clara what her favorite parts were she said it was the aerial acts. The first one is The Little Mermaid doing acrobatics while dangling on a rope from the ceiling. And the second is Rapunzel and Flynn Rider flying through the air on yellow silks that represent her long locks.
Halfway through the show, the production takes a brief intermission (15-20 minutes). It’s a great time to grab a snack or the kids can have their picture taken with various backdrops in the concourse. The second half opens with the summer’s hit “Finding Dory”.
Finally, the last half hour of the show is dedicated to Frozen. My three year old Mae was waiting all night for this! Even if you are sick of Frozen by now, you’ll appreciate the beauty of this act. The snow falling, costumes, choreography, and set is all incredible!
All the other Disney princesses make an appearance in the show as well as other favorite characters from Toy Story. It is an overall fantastic show!
