Disney On Ice 2013 – Celebrates 100 Years of Magic

Just this past Wednesday, August 11 I got to take my family to see Disney On Ice. This was the first event of this caliber I have ever been able to take Anna and Ethan to. Megan has been to a Disney On Ice show but it was before Anna and Ethan were ever born so she does not remember much of it.

To see the look on Anna and Ethan’s face when the show first started was absolutely priceless. They were just so in awe of the whole event. Val from Windy City Live opened the show, which then brought Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and Donald Duck on to the ice. After Mickey, Minnie and Donald Duck everyone’s favorite Genie from Aladdin and Aladdin himself came on the ice.

The next set of Disney characters to come onto the ice was none other than Nemo, with his dad and Dori! The shark was very cool, and BIG from Nemo!

It was then time for the Disney Princess’s to make an appearance. First up was Belle with the Beast and all the characters from Beauty and the Beast.

All the princesses and princes skating together.

One of my favorite parts of the Disney On Ice performance is from Toy Story when all the Soldiers were skating in unison. Of course, Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and Jessie were part of the performance.

Goofy was on the ice when the main soldier appeared.

The “gift” is where Buzz Lightyear came out.

Buzz Lightyear and Jessie. My pictures of Woody turned out very fuzzy. 🙁

Another one of my favorite parts of the show was the lights parade, which came on right after a beautiful performance of “It’s A Small World”. This reminded of the lights parade at Disney World!

Ending the first half of the show was Mickey Mouse in a hot air balloon. It really was gorgeous!

    The connections that you make early in your career will take you far. After 20 years it is still true for me. This has been true regarding companies I worked for and those I worked with. All you have written is excellent advice.

  2. Oh wow this is so neat. I think it would be really fun to go and watch!
