Have you ever taken your kids to Disney On Ice? If not, I highly recommend it. It is approximately two hours of mesmerizing excitement and an experience your kids won’t soon forget! And if you’ve never taken your kids on a trip to Disney and/or don’t have plans to in the future, this is the next best thing (and a lot cheaper)! In fact, until our kids were older and actually went to Disney World, they thought Disney On Ice WAS Disney! 😉
Each year the theme and story is a bit different. If you attend this year, here’s what you can expect: The theme is Dream Big and you will travel with Tinker Bell on a journey of the beloved tales of eight Disney princesses! Make a splash with the fearless dreamer Ariel as she yearns to explore life above the waves. Watch Rapunzel, Cinderella and Belle as they learn about the power to make their own magic. Travel to the wintry world of Arendelle with sisters Anna and Elsa and the hilarious snowman Olaf from Disney’s Frozen as they learn that true love is the greatest magic of all. Be there to discover a whole new world with the daring Jasmine and join Snow White, Aurora and Tiana as they remind you that strength and kindness go hand-in-hand. High flying jumps, daring acrobatics, breathtaking skating and lovable Disney friends make Disney On Ice: Dream Big an experience your family will never forget!
Disney On Ice: Dream Big is coming to Green Bay at the Resch Center on February 14 – 18, 2018 with eight shows! Show times are Wednesday, February 14 at 7 p.m., Thursday, February 15 at 7 p.m., Friday, February 16 at 7 p.m., Saturday, February 17 at 11 a.m., 3 p.m. & 7 p.m. and Sunday, February 18 at Noon & 4 p.m.
A few other things to keep in mind if you will be attending the show are:
1) The show is just under 2 hours long including a 15-20 minute intermission.
2) If your child has a costume of their favorite Disney character be sure to let them wear it to the show! However, please note that per Disney policy, costumes for people ages 14 years and older are not allowed.
3) The Resch Center Sensory Safe Zone will be available during all shows. If you are not familiar with the Sensory Safe Zone, it is geared towards families with loved ones of any age that may be on the autism spectrum or have another emotional or mental disorder. It allows them a safe place to decompress without leaving the venue in the hopes they will be able to return to their seats. The soft space is equipped with weighted blankets and therapy tools recommended by industry professionals to assist our customers. Also, noise-canceling headphones and sunglasses will be available for check-out in the zone as many times these items allow the person to cope with and overcome their anxiety. There is no fee to use the zone and it can be accessed at any time. Customers who do not know where it is located may ask any guest service or box office representative for directions. When available, a video feed of the event will be played in the Sensory Safe Zone.
4) There will be MANY Disney souvenirs/toys and Disney-branded food items (cotton candy, slushies, etc.) for sale. When kids see these things it’s only natural for them to get excited and want them. I think it’s good for parents to be prepared for this so you can either bring along extra cash to purchase these items or discuss with your children in advance that you will not be purchasing these items or that you will only be spending or buying a certain amount (i.e. set a dollar or quantity limit).
5) Doors open 1 hour before performance time. Items that are not permitted into the arena are:
- Bags and Briefcases (Purses & diaper bags are allowed)
- Video Cameras or Recording Devices
- Long detachable or professional-type lenses
- Laser Pointers or Noise-makers
- Go-pro Cameras
