Disney on Ice is coming to the Resch Center in Green Bay on February 20-23! 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 the theme is Dream Big and it will lead you and your family on several exciting adventures! Join the wayfinder, Moana, and the greatest demigod that ever lived, Maui, on an action-packed voyage to restore the stolen heart of Te Fiti. Explore the Land of the Dead as Miguel from Disney•Pixar’s Coco brings the festivities of Dia de los Muertos to the ice. Get tangled up in Rapunzel’s hair-raising quest to see the floating lights. Travel to the kingdom of Arendelle with Anna, Elsa and Olaf in a dramatic retelling of the sisterly love that saved the kingdom. And discover the strength, bravery and kindness that inspired generation after generation with Jasmine, Ariel, Aurora, Belle and Cinderella. High-flying jumps, breathtaking skating and lovable Disney friends make Disney on Ice presents Dream Big an experience your family will never forget!
There will be eight shows to choose from. Show times are Thursday, February 20 at 7PM, Friday, February 21 at 7PM, Saturday, February 22 at 11AM, 3PM & 7PM and Sunday, February 23 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) New this year, you can purchase a 45-minute Character Experience with Belle & Mickey.
Celebrate the story of Beauty and the Beast! This special character experience includes meeting Belle & Mickey, a welcome dance party, make-a-menu craft, napkin-folding fun, storytime with Belle, photo opportunities with 1 printed photo in frame, a tag and lanyard. The character experience pass is an additional purchase and must be accompanied by an event ticket to Disney on Ice for that same day. The storytime with Belle & Mickey takes place 60 minutes prior to the main event and guests should arrive 15 minutes early. Ages 2 & up require a ticket and children must be accompanied by an adult, who also must have a show character experience pass/ticket. Character Experience passes are $55 each and can be purchased here.
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, which can be a great early lesson in budgeting.
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)
