Disney on Ice is coming to the Resch Center February 7-10! If you’ve never taken your kids to Disney on Ice, I highly recommend it. It’s 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. This year is extra special because Disney on Ice is celebrating 100 Years of Magic! Families will join the fun in an exciting opening number that salutes Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse as the original hosts of Disney On Ice and celebrates 90 years of Mickey and Minnie. Mickey Mouse will lead a parade of more than 50 beloved characters starring Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy and an ensemble of Disney Princesses including Cinderella, Rapunzel, Ariel, Snow White and Tiana. The wintry wonderland of Disney’s Frozen will also come to life with Anna, Elsa, and the hilarious Olaf, as they discover that true love is the greatest magic of all. Exciting moments from Disney•Pixar’s Finding Nemo, Disney’s Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast will leave the whole family with memories to last a lifetime.
The legacy of Disney will be displayed through 14 classic and modern stories in this epic production that features an international team of award-winning figure skaters, high-energy choreography and a breathtaking set. With over 30 melodious masterpieces such as “Let It Go!,” “You’ve Got A Friend in Me” and “Hakuna Matata,” Disney On Ice celebrates 100 Years of Magic is sure to be the ultimate Disney fan experience.
There will be eight shows! Show times are Thursday, February 7 at 7PM, Friday, February 8 at 7PM, Saturday, February 9 at 11AM, 3PM, 7PM and Sunday, February 10 at 11AM, 3PM, 7PM.
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). If you plan to buy something for them, one idea is to tell them the dollar amount you will spend and they can help decide how to spend it but when it’s gone, it’s gone.
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
