When it comes to ALL the family watching a film together at home, it’s not always easy picking out one that everyone will be happy about watching as all four of my children have quite large age gaps (apart from the twins!) so it usually ends up being something Disney, because everyone loves Disney films right?
I think we know every animated Disney movie and all the characters like we know our own family! Each time a new film is released you can’t actually believe it could be better than the previous ones.
I remember when Beauty and the Beast came out, many moons ago, I thought it was truly amazing but that nothing could be any better than The Little Mermaid which I loved and still love today, as does my 8yr old daughter! But it was… there’s always some new, magical twist in the animation that makes the films so mesmerising.
My daughter watches those two movies, as well as Pocahontas, Enchanted, Tinkerbell, Tangled and more recently, the utterly brilliant Frozen, over and over again. While my twins love Planes, Cars and Monsters University and Teen has always had a soft spot for the Toy Story films!
In fact we could all watch ANY of the films at any given time. They are classics.
So of course, going to watch an actual LIVE Disney production is always going to go down well, especially when it’s Disney on Ice! This is an absolute must for any Disney fan and they have their new show on the road RIGHT NOW.
The Worlds of Fantasy production promises to ‘take families on a whirlwind tour of contemporary and classic Disney tales, whisking audiences away to four magical locations on an action-packed tour led by Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse!
AND WE HAVE TICKETS!
We are so excited to see this show. The last Disney on Ice we went to was a few years ago at the O2 in London, think it was the Disney Princesses, I only took my daughter as my twins were too young so it will be great to take them for the first time.
I know they’re going to love it.
I’ve read that the captivating ice adventure will take Disney lovers across the auto-racing terrain of Cars, Andy’s bedroom for some Toy Story 3 fun, under the sea with Ariel from The Little Mermaid and into Tinker Bell’s mystical Pixie Hollow. Mickey Mouse embarks on an adventurous journey with Minnie Mouse to uncover each world of fantasy, but the plan goes awry when their cherry red roadster unexpectedly breaks down. Although Donald Duck and Goofy try, it takes the assistance of the coolest Cars on the ice to get the pistons firing again.
Worlds of Fantasy offers the perfect combination of elements for fans of Disney On Ice.
“From the contemporary feel of Cars and Toy Story 3 to the timeless quality of The Little Mermaid and Tinker Bell, audiences will see four completely different Disney worlds brought to life,” says producer Kenneth Feld. “All of this provides a value that is truly unparalleled in the world of live family entertainment. More than ever before, there’s something for everyone.”
Here are some interesting facts from the show:
• Each life size car took 2,000 man-hours to build.
• Disney On Ice presents Worlds of Fantasy is the first show featuring Tinkerbell’s story live on ice.
• Disney On Ice presents Worlds of Fantasy features choreography by Emmy Award®-winning choreographer Sarah Kawahara and lighting by Emmy Award®-winning designer Peter Morse.
• It takes over 12 hours to set up the show in each new market.
• 13 production trucks are used to take this show from city to city.
• There are 79 different paint colours in the show.
Its sounds and looks pretty spectacular. The above picture has been taken from the show!
