{Review} Disney On Ice in Nashville – Let’s Celebrate!

Disney On Ice - Let's Celebrate! Nashville performance giveawayDisney on Ice Giveaway - Nashville October 1-4, 2015You may remember that, a few weeks ago, I hosted a giveaway for Disney On Ice presents Let’s Celebrate! in Nashville. We had the pleasure of attending a performance ourselves this weekend, and I wanted to share my experience. While I was excited to attend myself (because I grew up loving movies like Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, and Beauty and the Beast), I was most excited about the idea of taking our 2-year-old daughter. She had never seen ice skaters before, nor had she been to a big performance like this before, so we were really eager to see her reaction.

She and I had picked up the tickets from the box office together a few weeks ago, and in true toddler fashion, one of the things she was most excited about was handing her ticket over to the ticket-taker. =) Here she is, with her dad/my husband, getting ready to go!

I wasn’t quite sure how she would react to so much stuff, but she was cool, calm, and happy. Off to a good start, and ready to watch the show!

The show was engaging, entertaining, and mesmerizing to little ones. Instead of one lengthy show, it’s segmented into a series of shorter mini-performances, which works great in keeping kids’ attention. My personal favorite was a Fantasia-based performance (below), with a magical Mickey Mouse leading a rink-full of life-size, glow-in-the-dark “brooms” through a fantastic dance routine.

I thought it would be a bit too scary for her, as it was literally and figuratively “darker,” but she loved it. We’ve been talking a lot about Halloween-related things lately (pumpkins! spiderwebs! ghosts! skeletons!), and she was tickled to see and identify those things in the show.

Disney On Ice - Let's Celebrate! Overall, we had an excellent time! We went to the 10:30 AM performance, which worked beautifully in keeping with the toddler’s normal meal / nap schedule. After we had gotten home, had lunch, and I was rocking her for a minute before her nap, she said, “I had lots of fun at the ice skaters ‘formance, mama. Mickey Mouse was my favorite.” A great way to spend a Saturday morning indeed.

Hi there,

I have not been out of circulation for quite some time, but I am back now. This is such a darling post. I bet your daughter was mesmerized by the show. I remember going to the Ice Capades when I was small, and I was utterly enthralled. I “skated” all through the house for days. It’s good to be back, and I send warmest greetings from my home to yours.

We took our girls to Disney on Ice in Louisville last year, and they loved it!
