Disney on Ice's Let's Celebrate show in Phoenix.
It was fabulous! It seems that each show is better than the last, but they are all so good that it doesn't seem fair to say that it was better. They are all different, and enjoyable, and so well-done.
There are plenty of laughs, as well as amazing skating. I'm always impressed by the athleticism and professionalism of the skaters who take on the Disney character personas. Of course, you expect the princesses -- but last night we were also treated to Toy Story characters and the pig character was hilarious and so well done! The pig had skates on his (her?) hands as well as feet, so he looked just like the character in the movie.
It's hard to choose a favorite part of the show, but I think I loved the sequence with Mickey as the Sorcerer's Apprentice and the brooms. The brooms were all skaters, in costumes that glowed under black lights and they were great! Another favorite for me was the Hawaiian summer celebration segment. Fun music, as well as a ring of fire on the ice!
This show even had fireworks to highlight some of the celebrations! And, of course, Mickey and Minnie Mouse were there to host the entire show. Which just reminded me of another favorite -- the depiction of a Japanese celebration to welcome spring with a cherry blossom tree and pink LED fans.
Lydia liked seeing all of her princess friends -- including Snow White who was the only princess we didn't have a chance to meet while at DisneyLand last year. The princes threw and flipped and spun the princesses with no fear of the skates on their feet! It was a delight to watch them skate.
We grinned throughout the entire show and had a great time. The show is in Phoenix until January 23rd, so if you're looking for something to do with the family, head on down to US Airways and take in a fabulous show! It's obviously kid-friendly, but also entertaining for adults.
As a special to my readers, I can share the special discount code of "MOM" so that you can purchase 4 tickets for $44 - good for the Thursday, Jan 20th 7:30pm show, Friday, Jan 21st 10:30am and 7:30pm shows, Saturday, Jan 22nd 7:30pm show, and the Sunday, Jan 23rd 5:30pm show (excluding Front Row and VIP seating). This is the best discount in our market, so please take advantage of it! You can use the code online at Ticketmaster or over the phone.
And -- if you buy one of the snow cones in a special cup -- know that even though they're pricey (the Tinkerbell cup was $12) they do come with a 2 year warranty in case they break. It made the cost a little easier to bear last night knowing that.
