We were invited to opening night of Disney on Ice presents Worlds of Enchantment in Leeds last week and unfortunately, I am a little under the weather but thought it would be the perfect event for my Brother and his family. So he set off with my Sister in Law, his daughter (aged twelve) and three granddaughters ages between 2 and 8. I have been to Disney on Ice with the boys and my niece before so knew that they would have the best time.
Disney On Ice presents Worlds of Enchantment is an action-packed ice spectacular, showcasing beloved characters from Disney•Pixar’s Cars, Toy Story 3, Disney’s The Little Mermaid and the Academy Award®-winning Frozen and proved to be a wonderful multigenerational event an everyone had an amazing time. My family watched it Leeds which is pretty central to the city and unfortunately got stuck in traffic, so make sure you allow plenty of time to get to your area especially as the warm-up with the Fit To Dance Crew is great.
The show was split into two halves and each half had two stories, one main and one shorter. As you can see from the photo’s the girls were mesmerised at times and then singing along at the top of their voices at others. Even my niece enjoyed herself although she said she only went along to help with the younger girls!
Once the pre-show warm up with the Fit To Dance crew finished the Toy Story gang took to the ice. Yes the whole gang including Hamm the Piggy Bank, Rex the Tyrannosaurus Rex, Mr Potato Head and Slinky Dog all on ice! Apparently, Barbie and Ken did an amazing ice dance in the Dreamhouse.
The whole show is filled with Disney magic and the girls were totally transfixed. In fact, even the adults were transfixed too. In fact, my brother and SIL said it was the perfect event to take grandchildren too.
Top Tips for Disney on Ice Worlds of Enchantment
How to get the most out of Disney on Ice Worlds of Enchantment:
- If you have children that like to dress up then take along those dresses or outfits. It is the perfect place to wear a Disney princess dress or be Woody for the evening. But layer – remember it is on ice!
- Take a Disney teddy or memorabilia with you to distract the children from the sellers outside of the venue.
- Buy a frozen ice drink as you get a cute character cup keepsake to take home with you.
- Arrive early to make the most of the pre-show warm up and visit the concession stands.
- Go to the toilet before or after the show. The ladies will be busy during the intermission.
- Go with the glow – there are loads of light-up electronic doo-dads for sale at the event, but there is also nothing stopping you bringing your own with you. I am a big fan of glow sticks as they are inexpensive and light to carry.
- The fun of Disney on Ice isn’t limited to the ice rink. Get kids pumped before the show, or keep the magic skating along afterwards with these downloads. Print this Disney On Icecolouringg sheet or this Disney On Ice word search.
