Last night my son and I went on an “adventure” (which is Squishy’s word for anything new). What we actually did was attend the opening night of Disney on Ice Celebrates 100 Years of Magic.
We saw Disney Princesses and Princes gliding on the ice dance floor just like the do in the movies.
We watched toy soldiers march in unison on the ice, and laughed as Woody, Jessie, and Buzz Lightyear bounce across the stage.
We cheered every time Mickey & Minnie Mouse came on the ice.
With both boys in Mickey shirts, he was clearly a huge favorite in our group!
We LOVED the watching It’s a Small World come to life in front of us.
My son’s favorite character of the whole show (other than Mickey and Minnie) was the whale from Pinocchio. When I asked him why he said, “The whale ate people and then sneezed them out and that is so silly!”
I enjoyed the magic of Mulan, and the dancing dragon.
The clear favorite of the entire evening was the Lion King. As soon as the Lion King theme song came on, the whole crowd erupted in cheers! I’ve been to rival ball games with less cheering!
It truly was a magical evening celebrating 100 years of magic. It was so exciting to watch my son fall in love with characters I have loved for years.
Tips for attending the show:
- Expect a crowd! Of all the family shows I have attending in Las Vegas with my son, this was the most crowded. (If you wait to take a 2.5 year old to the bathroom at intermission, expect a line!)
- Expect Traffic – I left 1.5 hours prior to the show. I still was 10 minutes late. Allow yourself extra time to deal with Vegas drivers.
- Expect to have fun, but know that some parts of the show (like the beast roaring) are a little scary for younger (3 and under) children. Prepare your child by letting them know in advance that it is a story, and everyone is okay.
- Expect lots of smiles! This was a wonderful evening that we won’t soon forget!
