On Tuesday, we were invited along to the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham to see the opening show of Disney on Ice Frozen. We didn’t really know what to expect but was super excited as we love the film, and I’m not too cool (geddit?!) to admit but I absolutely love Frozen so couldn’t wait to see the show.
We were lucky enough to meet Anna and Elsa before the show started and my three year old went all shy and stubborn and refused to have his photograph taken with them. Luckily enough, my nephew didn’t mind so had his photograph taken with the stars of the show. I am so jealous and gutted I didn’t get in the photo with him.
We took our seats and we were really excited. It was so lovely to see lots (and I mean thousands) of little girls in their frozen costumes. They all looked really adorable. The music started and the show began.
It was great to see familiar Disney characters at the start of the show. Olly loved watching Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Buzz and Woody from Toy Story skate round on the ice and I loved seeing Nemo and Dory too! It was a great introduction to the show and really engaged the little ones.
Without spoiling it for you, if you’re off to the show, it was absolutely amazing! Olly was singing and dancing along to the songs and we had a really lovely moment where he held my hands and we were waltzing away in our seats. I have to admit, I did get a little teary when he was singing along and he had the biggest smile on his face. I don’t know how they do it, but it was such a magical show and we all really enjoyed it. I watched the whole show with a big grin on my face, I felt like a little girl again.
Top tip… if your little ones are three and under, they might get a little tired and cranky during the second half if you see a late afternoon show. The show is in two parts both lasting around an hour each so by the middle of the second half, Olly was lying down on my husbands lap as he was getting tired. I’d definitely recommend earlier afternoon shows for little ones.
All in all we had an amazing evening at Disney on Ice Frozen. Expect to be transported into a magical Disney world where you’ll be singing and dancing along to the music along with your kids!
Top tip: take plenty of spending money as there is plenty of Frozen merchandise on offer. I bought my nephew a Olaf cup with ice slush inside for £11 and bought Olly a drinks bottle with slush inside for £8.
Disclosure: We had a fantastic time thanks to #MothersMeetings and Disney on Ice. I wasn’t asked to post this but we had such a great evening I wanted to share it with my readers.
