Review: Disney on Ice Dare To Dream in Phoenix

Oh, did we love the show last night!  We attended opening night of Disney on Ice Dare To Dream at the Phoenix US Airways Center last night and had a wonderful time.  This show was a little different than others that we have seen, in that it told the story of 3 fairy tales during the 2 hour show.  We started the evening with Princess & The Frog and thoroughly enjoyed the music of New Orleans and when Tiana and the Prince were turned into frogs, they were downright adorable!

Next, we watched the Cinderella story unfold, complete with hilarious step-sisters, the adorable mice, and a gorgeous carriage. I was especially impressed with the skater/horses that led Cinderella's carriage.

But, we all agreed that our favorite part of the show was Tangled!  Not only were Rapunzel and Flynn amazing skaters, but they also performed exciting acrobatics from long fabric hanging from the ceiling.  They really "flew" above the ice and it was so much fun to watch!  They also did a fantastic job with the horse, Maximus -- I don't know how the 2 skaters who wore that costume managed to do such a fabulous job.

The finale had more princesses and princes, all dressed in gorgeous gold and white costumes.  The cut of the dresses and the hairstyles made it obvious which princess we saw, and I absolutely adored the gold and white.  It was stunning!

The kids all enjoyed the show, and the boys were grateful for the laughs from Mickey and Donald Duck, as well as the Cinderella mice and Flynn's antics. Lydia was mesmerized throughout the performance, and declared it "ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!"

My lucky giveaway winner let me know that she & her family had a "perfect evening at Disney on Ice."  I love being able to share that fun.

You still have a chance to see it in Phoenix before it leaves!   The Sunday, January 13th show at 4:30 will be performed entirely in Spanish.

If you have the chance to attend, I highly recommend it.  We have never been disappointed by a show yet.

I'd also like to note that they are fantastic about starting right on time.  When the ticket says that the show starts at 7PM, then the show STARTS at 7PM.  Based on the number of people scrambling for seats in the dark, I think that people don't believe the starting time.  I recommend getting there in plenty of time so you don't miss a moment of the show!
