Over the years I have been fortunate enough to get a first-hand look at what goes on behind the scenes at Disney on Ice and those experiences have given me a new appreciation for the show. Hearing from the skaters how much work they put in and how much they love making the kids smile is exactly the reason why we continue to attend the show year after year.
Admittedly, we are a bit more excited for this year’s Disney on Ice show because for the first time, Ottawa will get the chance to see Anna, Elsa and Olaf from Frozen take to the ice at Canadian Tire Centre! We haven’t actually told the kids yet because we think it’ll be a cool surprise when they come flying out from behind the curtain. And yes, I am probably just as excited as the kids will be. So what?!
Well, what are you waiting for? Grab your Mickey ears and get ready for the ultimate Disney experience as Disney On Ice celebrates 100 Years of Magic! Besides seeing their favourite Frozen characters, your kids will also get to enjoy a cast of more than 50 characters, with Mouse-ter of Ceremonies Mickey Mouse, sweetheart Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy and Disney Princesses including Cinderella, Rapunzel, Ariel, Snow White and Tiana!
