Disney On Ice Presents Frozen – Review

index

Yesterday, I surprised my girls after school and told them we would be going to see Disney On Ice. It was so fun to see them get so excited, jumping up and down and screaming! They have been to a few different versions of Disney On Ice over the past several years but it has been a couple years since we last went. It made for a fun Valentine’s date night with my girls. And my husband was more than happy to order Chinese food and stay home with the baby!

We arrived at the Capital One Arena (formerly Verizon Center) early and attended the media party where we got to see Mickey. The girls munched on snowflake cookies, blue hot cocoa, and carrot sticks with Ranch dip – all in keeping with the Frozen theme. They were also thrilled to get their faces painted. Then it was time to grab a few more snacks and head down to our seats.

The show opens with Goofy, Mickey, and Minnie skating onto the ice, followed by several princesses including Ariel, Cinderella, and Snow White. A few more Disney characters from Finding Nemo/Dory and Toy Story come out and they all perform during the opening song.

Then the show proceeds into the Frozen story and pretty much follows the movie itself. The production, set, costumes, and special effects are all top notch per usual with Disney. It’s such an entertaining show and completely engages the little ones.

If your kids are Disney fans, they will absolutely love the show. And if they are Frozen fans, they will love this even more! Tickets are very affordable and it’s definitely worth it! Just be forewarned that the concessions are steep ($15 for cotton candy and $12 for popcorn). There are also merchandise stands everywhere and your kids will want to buy all the things! I thought ahead this year and dug through the playroom and found several of the spinning light-up toys from previous shows and brought them along.

Feld Entertainment, Inc., Brings the #1 Animated Movie
of All Time to Life with Disney On Ice presents Frozen in Washington, D.C.

Tickets On Sale Now for Touring Skating Spectacular
Washington, D.C. Families Set to Experience the Entire Story of Frozen On Ice.

 (Washington, D.C., November 16, 2017) – Feld Entertainment, Inc., the worldwide leader in producing live touring family entertainment, announces it will bring the Academy Award® winning and number one animated feature film of all time, Disney’s Frozen, to life.  Disney On Ice presents Frozen visits Washington, D.C. from February 14 to February 19 for 10 performances at the Capital One Arena, formerly known as Verizon Center; tickets are on sale now.

The complete adventure of the Academy Award® winning tale will be told live for the first time in this production, capturing the dynamic of two royal sisters, Anna and Elsa.  Anna, a girl with an extraordinary heart, embarks on an epic journey to find her sister, the magical Elsa, who is determined to remain secluded as she finally feels free to test the limits of her powers.    Rugged mountain man Kristoff, his loyal reindeer Sven, the lovable and hilarious snowman Olaf and the mystical trolls help Anna along the way in this story about love conquering fear.  Audiences will get to sing along with such musical masterpieces as “Let it Go,” “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” and “Fixer Upper.”

“In our more than 30 years of producing Disney On Ice shows, Feld Entertainment has been waiting for a film like this,” says producer Nicole Feld.  “While it might seem obvious that Frozen is well suited for the ice, this Disney On Ice production will touch audiences emotionally through innovative show elements and world-class skating.”

Frozen directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee add, “Seeing audiences around the world embrace Frozen has been the experience of a lifetime.  And to now have the chance to consult with the talented team at Feld Entertainment and watch their creation come to life on ice, is thrilling.”

In Disney On Ice presents Frozen, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse take the audience through the magical story based in Arendelle, with special appearances by beloved Disney princesses and favorite characters from Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story and Finding Nemo and Disney’s The Lion King, who come together to prove that true love is the greatest power of all.  Director Patty Vincent says, “Our goal is to showcase these heartwarming characters in a way that allows the audience to cheer and sing along throughout this emotional journey.”

To create a completely immersive experience for the audience, the set design will encompass the space from the ice surface up through the air, drawing everyone into the story and closer to the characters. Families will feel that they are trekking up to the North Mountains with Anna, Kristoff and Sven, and they will tangibly experience the storm inside Elsa.  Elsa’s magic will be enhanced by state-of-the art special effects while her emotions will be conveyed through powerful skating.
