Disney On Ice - Dare to Dream - Review

We got to attend the opening night performance of Disney On Ice - Dare to Dream in Salt Lake City on Wednesday night. The girls were so excited they could hardly sit still once we found our really fabulous seats. Molly was in a bit of shock, I think. Once the show began they didn't take their eyes off the ice.

The show began with an exciting, musical performance of The Princess and the Frog. The fun jazz music and great dancing that are part of the movie were incorporated into the choreography on the ice. Combined with the colorful costumes and the energy from the performers, they successfully portrayed the spirit of New Orleans.

My girls are fans of Tiana (she's Utah Dad's favorite Disney princess) and they were so excited to see her. The special effects were fun--especially when the prince and Tiana turn into frogs and then back into humans again.

The second part of the show was a retelling of the beloved Cinderella classic. I just love Cinderella and the simplicity of the tale I've heard and seen so often since my own childhood.

Disney On Ice brought the magic alive with a fabulous performance of this favorite. Lilly thought it was funny that the mice were so big and the step sisters' antics were hysterical and amusing for the children.

"I liked the guards dancing." - Molly

The third story told by Disney On Ice was Tangled. It was absolutely fantastic and we all agreed that it was our favorite part of the show.

Rapunzel and Flynn were wonderful skaters and their stunts were incredible. Really, it was very entertaining and exciting. Their performance included many of the fun scenes from the movie and the great songs.

"My favorite part is when Rapunzel flies." - Lilly

The show ends with a grand finale that includes all the favorite Disney Princesses and their princes. My girls were so excited to see all their favorites.

The skating was great and the special effects were fun. My girls loved every minutes of the performance and I was much more entertained at the Dare to Dream Performance than I was at the Disney On Ice 100 Year Celebration that we attended last fall. These are first rate productions. The choreography is great. The costumes are fabulous. There just a lot to stimulate the senses.

It's not too late to go see the show for  yourself. Disney On Ice Dare to Dream will continue through the weekend with shows today, Saturday and Sunday.
