Earlier this week, we were guests of Disney’s for an exclusive meet and greet party leading up to the opening night of Disney On Ice: Mickey’s Search Party. All the fun took place at the Angel of the Winds Arena in Washington, and it felt beyond magical to bring a little bit of The Happiest Place on Earth right into our neighboring town.
When we were first invited to see Disney On Ice and attend the party, I knew I had to get my younger kiddos there. I wasn’t sure how my oldest would feel about attending a Disney On Ice now that she’s clearly in the tween age group, but then I remembered that the beauty of Disney is that it has a way of making anyone feel like a child. And, when you add that magic to amazing acrobatic feats and beautiful ice dancing, the answer to whether you should attend is always a resounding YES.
So, I got tickets for the whole family and crossed my fingers that I was correct. A soon as the show started, I knew I couldn’t have been more right. Naturally, the younger two were absolutely speechless throughout the performance, but even my tween was also sitting transfixed with all the Disney magic. It really is that powerful.
This pig-tailed girl has been waiting her whole life to see Anna and Elsa in person, and the Frozen part of Disney On Ice: Mickey’s Search Party did not disappoint. It was filled with amazing feats of strength and stunning beauty, and my girl couldn’t get enough. She has been talking about it nonstop since Thursday, but she didn’t say a word during except gasping “FROZEN!” as soon as the performance started.
The Coco performance was one of our absolute favorites, and the high flying dancers kept the whole audience ooohing and aaahing. The kids were especially excited after attending the Coco-themed Disney party beforehand where they got to make marigolds and color family trees.
Be part of the fun
Audience participation is encouraged all throughout the show, but everyone got especially excited about the fun and sing-able songs from Coco, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Frozen.
One of the coolest things about the show is the fact that they grab kiddos from the audience to “help” on the stage and ice. My kiddos enjoyed watching little ones their own ages assist in the show, and they were absolutely over the moon when my younger two got called down to ride in the boat in the Little Mermaid portion of the event. Seeing their smiles as they were led into the boat is always going to be a cherished family memory, and it brings with it some incredible bragging rights for basically the rest of their lives.
If you are in one of the lucky cities Disney On Ice: Mickey’s Search Party is stopping in, do yourself a favor and buy tickets for the family. It will blow your minds and leave the kids talking all about Disney magic well after the lights come on.
