Disney On Ice - 100 Years Of Magic Review

I still get blown away with some of the opportunities we receive. The ones that mean the most are the ones we go to places we generally wouldn't be able to. With the OH working all day and most the night. Weekends we try and make the most of family time making memories together. We went to Disney on Ice a few years ago before Lexie was born, so I've been itching to take her as well. Both the kids are crazy about Disney and to see the characters come to life is truly amazing. We went to the NIA in Birmingham on Saturday for the 11.00am show. 

The celebration as 65 of Disney's unforgettable characters from 18 beloved stories come to life in Disney On Ice celebrates 100 Years of Magic! You'll be captivated by the one and only Mickey Mouse, the irresistible Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Donald Duck, Jiminy Cricket, Pinocchio and all the Disney Princesses.

The costumes were amazing and even though they were skater outfits with lots of bling, you knew from what they was wearing who they were supposed to be. We really enjoyed the moments from Aladdin, Mulan, Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, The Lion King, Pinocchio & Toy Story. They did a mini intro and songs from the film, so it was a chance for the kids to watch and sing along. My daughter enjoyed the princesses and princes bit, where they all come on and skate together in pairs with the famous songs from the film. The show itself is mesmerising the effects, the stage and set up are truly fantastic. 

The kids loved the finding Nemo section where the skaters were dressing up as the fish and sharks, it was visually eye catching and pretty cool. It was nice to see some of the films that my kids have got on DVD but don't watch very often like Pinocchio, Mulan, Aladdin and The Lion King. 

My only bugbear was the price of the food and drink. £10 per drink which did come in a nice cup to keep and £5.50 per bag of popcorn, again came in a reusable canvas bag. So two drinks and popcorn cost us £31. 

The show was fantastic from start to finish, the kids are still talking about it today and they have dug all the old DVDs to watch. It’s great for a family treat as a day out. The show itself isn't that long but the kids was hooked from start to finish. 

Prices start from £15.50 per person and the show is still touring till January. Click Here for shows and times.
