I anticipated a bit of a later start time this morning, but last night’s Disney magic propelled the children out of their beds bright and early. The little guy burst into my room to tell me about the snow outside his window and his dreams of flying Elsa.
We’ve been beyond grateful to attend a few Disney On Ice productions with seats at various levels in the arena. While they have all been incredible for the kids – our experience at Disney On Ice Presents Princesses & Heroes at Nassau Coliseum was elevated by our on-ground experience. With front row table seating, complete with dinner service, we were truly immersed in the spectacular ice show. It was our first time taking in a production of this caliber at such proximity. I didn’t anticipate how we’d be able to see and feel the depth of charisma and passion from the performers with such an up-close perspective. The intricate detailing of the costumes, synchronicity of spectacular skating, and special effects including fire and snow were mesmerizing. And my goodness – how those little faces lit up by the unexpected performer interactions. I’m certain that it’s the sort of magic that will be ingrained in our forever memories.
As in all things Disney – this production is a true celebration of children. And the incorporation of a ton of classic Disney characters makes it appealing to all sorts of Disney fans. Watching the songs from the kids’ soul-belting living-room-performances unfold steps away from their little eyes took my breath away. From the chorus of cheers for Olaf – to the collective singing of tulle-clad children belting their hearts out to Let It Go – we were all fully swept up in the magic. Thank goodness I remembered to bring the tissues.
