Review: Disney on Ice Princess Classics

Last night, we attended the Phoenix performance of Disney on Ice, Princess Classics. The show was full of princesses (of course!) and quite a bit of fun. During the first half of the show, we saw Jasmine, Sleeping Beauty, Ariel, Mulan, Snow White and Belle. Pieces of each of their stories were enacted on the ice. My favorite was Ariel -- the costumes of the fish were amazing, and the skaters who performed Ariel and Prince Philip seemed the most athletic and daring!  I also really enjoyed the Seven Dwarfs from Snow White.

After intermission, we enjoyed Cinderella's story. I especially loved the wicked stepsisters. They were hilarious and their pratfalls on skates were definitely the work of pros!  While the princesses were the definite stars of the show, the secondary characters brought quite a bit of fun to each segment.

Another neat thing about this performance was the huge castle at the back of the stage.  They were able to twist the turrets and main building of the castle to create different sets and castles.  It was very unique and well done.

My children enjoyed the show.  Lydia (3yo) loved seeing her princess friends, but she also loved seeing the Beast and the witches.  Nate ( 8yo)  thought the sets were pretty neat and was very interested in how Aladdin's rug flew around the arena and the different props that were used.

The show will be here through the weekend, so you can still catch the princesses before they move on!  There may still be some discounted tickets left for these shows -- Friday, April 8th 7:30pm show; Saturday, April 9th 7:30pm show; and the Sunday, April 10th 1:30 and 5:30pm show (excluding Front Row and VIP seating).  Use the code MOM at Ticketmaster to purchase 4 tickets for $44, and additional tickets for $11.  Visit to see all of the upcoming shows!

The show runs 2 hours and keeps the kids in the audience interested throughout the show.  Lydia was 2 when we first attended a show, and she enjoyed it very much!
