Disney on Ice: Passport to Adventure Review

I received something of value from Feld Entertainment as part of their Insider Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.



Disney On Ice has become a yearly tradition for Grace and I and she was so excited to go last night. We watched the preview for the Passport to Adventure show many times and she told everyone she saw that we were going to see Mickey Mouse! She invited one of her friends to go with us and they both got dressed up in their Disney Princess finery to attend the show. I have to admit that I love watching the performance, but my absolute favorite thing about going is watching her face. There is nothing like watching your child mesmerized by her favorite characters or dancing along to her favorite songs. My phone wasn't able to get many great photos with the lighting but I absolutely adore the photos of Grace above.


We got there extra early to make sure we had plenty of time to get to our seats (unlike last year when we missed the entire opening number). The girls were thrilled when Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, and Goofy made their first appearance.
They were ready for the adventure and our journey started with one of Grace's favorites, Lion King. This segment was pretty short and I honestly wish they would have done more with Lion King and skipped the later Lilo and Stitch numbers. The costumes were beautiful and I would have loved to see a large cast animal number. Timon and Pumbaa were hilarious and I could have watched them all night!



Next we got a peek under the sea with Ariel. This section didn't disappoint with beautiful, bright costumes, fun cast numbers full of fish, starfish, and jellyfish, and impressive special effects. The kids all loved the Under the Sea number with the fun touch of lots of bubbles. Ursula's costume and special effects were definitely cool!

Our last stop before intermission was Hawaii to meet Lilo and Stitch. Grace isn't very familiar with this movie and wasn't interested in this section. It seemed very long with a lot of dialogue and she thought the aliens were scary. Like I said before, I wish they would have included a section of a more popular movie instead.

We had two very disappointed princesses at intermission. They were saying "we want Tinkerbell!" They were not exactly patient and were so excited when the lights finally went down and Tinkerbell skated out.

The Peter Pan segment was definitely the highlight of the show. Watching the characters fly from London to Neverland and back really made the story come to life.
Grace thinks Captain Hook is hilarious and really enjoyed the pirate sections of the show. She told her preschool teacher all about the crocodile today so he obviously made a big impression on her. As we were leaving she told me that Peter Pan was her favorite part of the entire thing.

Disney on Ice Passport to Adventure was a great show and we left smiling. Grace's only complaint was that there weren't enough princesses in it. She wanted a big princess number! She is already begging to go back. Passport to Adventure will be at the Sprint Center this weekend:
