Disney On Ice Passport to Adventure – An Honest Review

Disney on Ice Passport to Adventure

Last week my family experienced Disney on Ice Passport to Adventure on opening night in San Diego. Though I’ve been to Disneyland many many times, for whatever reason we’ve never been to Disney on Ice! Knowing how well Disney puts on a show, I knew to expect top notch entertainment but to be honest, I was still blown away!

A Jawdropping Live Production

It dawned on me that though I’ve watched ice skating on television for years, I’ve never actually seen it in person (other than a hockey game). To watch the performers jump, leap and twirl right in front of you is quite spectacular. I literally gasped at some of the stunts during the show. The costuming was so bright and fun and having the Disney characters there added to the enjoyment. I loved hearing the squeals of delight from the crowd when recognizable characters skated out onto the ice. I’m still trying to decide which part was my favorite (it’s a toss up between Tinker Bell’s pixie dust or the dancing starfish “Under the Sea”). I had my 6-month old on my lap and she kicked and laughed through the whole show (especially when she spotted her favorite, Minnie Mouse!)

Gadgets & Gismos Galore

There were so many great souvenirs in the lobby from t-shirts, light spinners and glow-in-the-dark sno-cones! I’m not sure how much anything cost as I’d already prepped the kids that we wouldn’t be able to purchase anything during the show. Since I had all four kids with me, I went the budget route and brought in a package of Dollar Spot glow stick bracelets so they wouldn’t feel left out. The kids had a good time putting on their glowing jewelry while we waited for the show to begin. Many of the kids in the crowd wore their Disney costumes which added to the excitement of the show.

First #DisneyOnIce for all of us! We’re excited for this #PassportToAdventure @disneyonice #hosted

Little Ones? Take Them to the Matinee

We attended a show on a Thursday at 7 pm. Due to the late hour, my 4-yr old was tired and ready to leave just after the intermission. He was enjoying the show but could barely keep his eyes open and ended up falling asleep against his big brother just before the Frozen scene began. If you have little ones, consider a matinee so they can stay alert for the entire presentation. It was also a school night so my big kids were getting tired as well. We ended up leaving a bit early so we could gracefully carry him out to the car without much disturbance.

I sure was disappointed not to see the rest of the show (we left just as Elsa finished singing “Let it Go”) and would love to return to another Disney on Ice production and stay for the whole thing! Disney on Ice Passport to Adventure was truly entertainment for the whole family.

When I asked my kids if they wanted to see the show, they all enthusiastically said “YES!” (even the 12-yr olds) so I think this family-friendly production will be a hit with young and old alike.
