What You'll See at Disney on Ice: Dare to Dream


Mickey Mouse and friends are performing at the EnergySolutions Arena through March 10 for Disney On Ice: Dare to Dream. And it’s a show—whether you have girls or boys (despite their aversion to princesses)—we recommend for the little ones.

Like other Disney on Ice shows, Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and Donald set the scene for movie characters to take the ice. Unlike other shows, which pull from a handful of movies, Dare to Dream focuses on three: Cinderella, Tangled andThe Princess and the Frog. This way kids are able to engage more of the story, and parents, however unfamiliar, can figure it out.

If you can swing it, sit close. Characters interact with audience members, and kids sitting close by might be picked to try on Cinderella’s glass slipper or help Rapunzel and Flynn launch a floating lantern.

Favorites who are not part of the main show, like Ariel from The Little Mermaidand Aladdin, show up toward the end. So if your daughter wants to dress as Snow White, she’s there, too.

All pairs on the ice are incredible. During Tangled, Rapunzel and Flynn actually take to the air above the ice for a dance that gets a huge response from the crowd.

The first portion is The Princess and the Frog. Right away, you notice how many details go into this production—from the costumes to the choreography to the music. Along with the pairs, I was impressed by characters wearing bulkier costumes, like Louis the gator and Ray the Firefly, just being able to get around the ice.

The Princess and the Frog offers some cool effects, too, like when Prince Naveen and Tiana turn into frogs, and later, back into humans. And luckily, kids won’t have to relive the death of Ray.

During Cinderella, it’s cool to see Cinderelly get decked out by Fairy Godmother, and her mice friends also show up. Vicky Black, who plays Cinderella, told us in an interview boys are missing out if parents don’t take them to the show, because for every princess, there’s also a prince. Prince Charming’s grand entrance is a highlight that proves they’re also a big deal.

The Tangled portion opens with Flynn descending from the rafters, swiping a princess crown from Mickey and his crew. Like I mentioned earlier, dancing in the Tangled portion is not to be missed. In fact, it was one of the best parts of the show.

If you have ever been a Disney fan and can accept a firefly being taller than a human, you’ll enjoy this show almost as much as the kids. Of course, it’s still a kids show. Expect much of it to be aimed towards them, not you.

Buying a snow cone for your kid will also bring a smile. You decide if it’s worth the $12. And if Disney’s not your thing, intermission is halfway throughCinderella.
