Why We Loved Disney On Ice: Tampa
Dreams do come true. You know, the dreams made of massive cotton candy, your favorite Disney songs + characters, and Olaf snow cones. THOSE DREAMS. Well, they certainly came true for us last night as we attended Disney on Ice in Tampa, Florida. To say that my kids were mesmerized would be a total understatement. Their awe made this mama heart so happy & of course I enjoyed the beauty and the fun of the show as well. I’m excited to share some of the details of the night with you so you know what to expect if you are considering heading to the show yourself!
We were so excited to get to the show! From the minute you enter the arena there was merchandise and goodies, galore! From their favorite princess glow sticks to popcorn bags as tall as they are (yes I swear!) there was something fun for everyone to grab. We actually had a lot of fun just going around taking a look at all the yummy treats and admiring the flashing toys. As time got closer, we got into our seats and anxiously awaited the show!
I was a little bit nervous about the show starting at 7pm to be honest, and I know a lot of you moms might feel the same way. Luckily and thankfully, as soon as the clock hit 7 it was show time! We didn’t have to wait a minute (which I was really happy about!) Mickey and Minnie were the first to come out with their pals Goofy and Donald. Ryland is one of their biggest fans, so naturally he was loosing his mind – in a good way 🙂
The show was dynamic – full of lights, characters, music, and fun dialogue! I never felt a dull moment and my kids eyes were fixed on the ice the entire time. Toy Story performed next and it was quite cute how they acted through the 3rd movie’s plot with almost all the characters from the production. It was really impressive. Next was The Little Mermaid and again, the songs won us over! Everyone was singing, dancing, and swaying to Kiss The Girl.
There is not much like being in a huge arena with a bunch of others singing the songs we all love. It was such a joy filled place and the looks and giggle from all the kids was so worth it!
There was a quick intermission, and then the second hour started. I know, I know. If I had read that it was a two hour show before going, I might have been nervous. But the Disney on Ice production was so well done and capitvating that my kids didn’t even get cranky. We grabbed an Olaf snow cone during the break and chatted about our favorite parts of the first half. Ryland loved seeing Rex from Toy Story and Goofy the most. 🙂
CARS came out after the break and seeing them drive around the ice was super cool. Landon made friends with the people in the rows around us and everyone and their children seemed to be having a ball! I think the highlight of the night was certainly Frozen. I have to admit – I am a huge Frozen fan – and I was really looking forward to this. They spent a lot of time on this section & for good reason. From the story of Prince Hans and Ana, to the freezing of the land, to Olaf singing his tune about Summer, and of course Let It Go – I felt like it was a perfect mix of the movie. It ended with Ana & Elsa’s true love sister moment + all was well.
If you are thinking about bringing littles to the show – I actually highly suggest it! There were so many babies and toddlers, all the way up to groups of adults attending on their own. Disney is for every age – and everyone definitely enjoyed the Ice production!
