I had the opportunity to go to the opening night of Disney on Ice Follow Your Heart at the EagleBank Arena in Fairfax, Va. This new show will be showing at select cities throughout April 2017!
I haven't been to a Disney on Ice event in a few years, and I am on a Disney World withdrawal, so I was excited to see some of my favorite characters while being immersed in their stories.
One of the best things about Disney on Ice is that there is such a large array of characters in the show. The whole family will have the chance to see their favorite character come to life in a performance like no other. The skating is so skilled and smooth that is seems as if the performers are floating across the ice. I don't know how Mickey and Minnie are so graceful on the ice!
The costumes and outfits are just as amazing as the live shows at the Disney Parks or Disney on Broadway. Belle's dress was so detailed and perfectly portrayed her character, all while being accessible for the twirls, spins, and tricks that she performed. There were even a few of the non-characters outfits that I wanted for myself! There was a scene with Sorcerer Mickey and his magic brooms, and you could hardly tell that the brooms were actually people! Their outfits and their movements were carefully crafted to make you really believe in dancing brooms!
The first half of the show was based off of Riley (from Inside Out) and her feelings as she was getting ready for a championship ice hockey game. All of Riley's feelings of Joy, Anger, Disgust, Fear, and Sadness were there to help her through this experience. Riley's story line perfectly segued in and out to other Disney worlds, such as each of the princesses.
