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 Passport to Adventure and you will travel with Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Donald, Daisy and Goofy as they travel to four timeless worlds in one fun-filled ice production. You and your family will explore the African Pride Lands with Simba, Timon and Pumbaa, voyage deep under the sea to Ariel’s mystical underwater kingdom and tour London with Peter Pan and Wendy before flying to Neverland to meet up with Tinker Bell. You’ll also be whisked away to Arendelle for an extraordinary adventure with sisters Anna and Elsa, rugged mountain man Kristoff and everyone’s favorite, huggable snowman Olaf, as they journey to discover that true love is the most magical power of all! Disney On Ice features an international team of award-winning figure skaters, high-energy choreography and a colorful set that captures all four unique worlds. Upbeat music, lovable characters and unforgettable moments make this an experience families will cherish forever. The show is just under 2 hours long including a 15-20 minute intermission. (If your child has a costume of their favorite Disney character be sure to let them wear it to the show!)
Disney On Ice: Passport to Adventure is coming to Green Bay at the Resch Center on February 8 – 12, 2017. Show times are Wednesday, February 8 at 7 p.m., Thursday, February 9 at 7 p.m., Friday, February 10 at 7 p.m., Saturday, February 11 at 11 a.m., 3 p.m. & 7 p.m. and Sunday, February 12 at Noon & 4 p.m.
A couple of other things to keep in mind if you will be attending the show are:
1) 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.
2) 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).
Tickets are on sale now and start at $14 for opening night and start at $20 for all other shows. All kids ages 2 and up need tickets. Kids under 2 must sit on a lap (unless a ticket is purchased for them). All seats are reserved and tickets are available at www.ReschCenter.com, by phone at 800-895-0071 or at the Ticket Star box office in the Resch Center.
I love how every year the theme is different. Keeps people coming back. I’m positive my son would absolutely love to see this show!
My daughter is obsessed with frozen!
Hoping Princess Jasmine makes an appearance… she’s my daughter’s favorite ??
Just LOVE Disney period!❤
I brought my kids last year and they loved it, they were only 1 and 3 so the intermission was hard on them, they lost focus. It was still worth it and I am looking forward to taking them again this year. They both are obsessed with Lion King, so I can’t wait to see there faces when they see Simba!!
