Disney On Ice Mickey and Minnie's Magical Journey

Feld Entertainment Disney On Ice – Mickey and Minnie’s Magical Journey

Tonight was the opening night for the Disney On Ice show at the XL Center in Hartford, CT and it truly was a magical journey and opportunity to introduce children to the thrill of live entertainment!


Disney On IceI had the good fortune to attend the show with my oldest daughter, now 28; my charming son-in-law and my two grandchildren; Slugger who just turned two and ‘Lil Moomette, age four.

In the Lilo and Stich act, we learned that Ohana is the Hawaiian word for “family.”  With family, nobody’s left behind.

What made it so magical for me, was that I felt as if I was being transported back in time – in my mind’s eye I was a young mom and my daughter was experiencing the land of make believe for the very first time.  I delighted in the fact that now as a grandmom, I was able to see the glee on the faces of my grandchildren as they watched endearing Disney characters come to life before their very eyes!

The XL Center in Hartford, Connecticut was the perfect venue for this kid-friendly performance. Our seats were slightly to the left of center stage, and provided excellent viewing. Inasmuch as this is family entertainment and there is a nosebleed section at the XL Center, those sections were empty (I would like to believe by choice for safety reasons.)

Prior to the commencement of the event, an announcement was made that there would be theatrical smoke, however it was safe and not hazardous to anyone’s health.  There were also to be some pyrotechnics for effect. The audience was encouraged to take photographs to preserve family memories.

The average age group of the child attendees ranged from approximately 3 to 8 years of age. The performance lasted 2 hours, with about a 20 minute intermission.

Costumes were colorful and the action was non-stop! Familiar stories of The Lion King; The Little Mermaid and Peter Pan engaged the children as they sat wide-eyed with rapt attention. I didn’t hear any crying babies or see any fidgety kids! This past Halloween my granddaughter wore a Tinker Bell costume, and delighted in seeing Peter Pan fly through the air and Tinker Bell swirl and skate around the ice with her magic wand showering magical green fairy dust across the auditorium stage.

As a mom, my heart skipped a beat as I listened to my 28 year old daughter sing along to songs from The Little Mermaid (Under The Sea) and The Lion King (Can You Feel the Love Tonight) – as if she had memorized all the words to each. After so many years, she still knew the name of each character!

I could almost hear her repeating a mantra  of  Peter Pan’s words “I don’t want to grow up….”

Simply Magnificent!
