You know that old saying “Time flies when you’re having fun!”? Well, my 9-year old found out just how true that saying is when we ventured to Chicago last week for Disney on Ice: Treasure Trove! The show lasted 2 hours but it seemed to just fly by in the span of about 30 minutes because of the fast-paced fun! Even my 3 year old watched intently as character after character made their way out on to the ice, each with their own song and performance.
We received 4 tickets to attend to the show and post a review. Since the show was on a Thursday evening and 2.5 hours driving distance from us, I used the opportunity to bring along my two children and my dad. My dad lives another hour and a half away in the opposite direction so it was a nice excuse for us to all get together for a couple of days. And, all four of us thoroughly enjoyed the show!
The skaters were amazing. We all ooh’d and ahhh’d over some of their feats! But, I think we all agreed our favorite part had to have been that of The Lion King. They were able to recreate all the fun, suspense, sadness and joy from the movie with their amazing sound bytes, costumes and performers and the duet performance between “Simba” and “Nala featured lots of stunts and lifts. Here’s a very quick glimpse of their performance taken with my iPhone (so I apologize for the quality!):
Baby Girl loved the Tangled scene. She had been asking when all the princesses would come out and loved seeing every one of them but she got so excited to see Rapunzel and Eugene come out on the ice together! During the lighting of the lanterns part of the show, they let a little girl come out on a small stage and help Rapunzel and Eugene lift a floating lantern towards the sky. I thought that was so sweet! What an awesome memory for that little girl! My son thought the crocodile with Peter Pan was hilarious. And, they both enjoyed Aladdin and Jasmine with their magic flying carpet. I thought the “Under the Sea” with Ariel from Little Mermaid was very cool with all their black light responsive clothes and props. It was all very fun to watch!
There were a few trips and falls. With it being their first night of a week’s worth of shows, I wasn’t surprised and my kids didn’t notice at all. In fact, my 9 year old thought it was part of the show (hehe). And, the skaters were very professional about it – they got right up and carried on with bright smiles. That made me cheer for them all the more! The only thing that I would warn against is the cost of popcorn and cotton candy… $12 each! A plastic bucket came with the popcorn and plastic Mickey Mouse ears with the cotton candy but I still couldn’t see how that would justify the price. I knew souvenirs and food would be expensive, so we ate at a restaurant just before going in to see the show to avoid overspending but unfortunately, I had agreed to let them each have one snack during the show before I knew just how much it’d cost – lesson learned for mom!
