Last night, we headed to the USAirways Center in Phoenix to watch Disney On Ice celebrates 100 Years of Magic.
We love Disney, and we love these ice shows! The skaters are amazing and we are entertained non-stop throughout the show.
The show started with Mickey & Minnie (of course!) I love how sweet they always appear on stage. I know it's a show - but they really are sweet to each other, and it makes me grin when they hold hands. They do an awesome job of making you feel the gentle romance between them.
Not only are all of the skaters amazingly athletic and talented, but the costumes blow me away! One of the popular numbers of the evening was the Aladdin / Genie number. At one point, Aladdin and the Genie did simultaneous backflips! That was Nate's favorite part of the show.
The costume designers successfully take animated characters and create costumes that capture that animated character into something that a skater can wear on the ice. For instance, check out the sharks from the Finding Nemo number!
Aren't they amazing? I thought it was extremely clever to have the smaller shark's fin be the skater's head.
The Toy Story number was another favorite. The toy soldiers routine was high energy, funny, and flawlessly executed. The soldiers are one of my favorites, and Lydia loved the song "You've Got A Friend in Me" for Woody & Buzz's number.
I didn't get any good shots of the princesses, but they were beautiful and amazing as well. Lydia liked that so many princesses appeared during the show (although she did miss Aurora and Rapunzel.)
It's so hard to choose a favorite number, so I encourage you to see the show yourself and be blown away!
The show is in Phoenix through this weekend (Apr 12-15, 2012) and discounted tickets are still available. (Email me for the flyer to use at the box office, or use the code NALA on Ticketmaster.com)
Colin & Lydia were happy to give a video review of the show! Check it out right here:
