Disney On Ice: Dare To Dream Skates To Sacramento

Disney On Ice: Dare To Dream

There is something magical about seeing the beloved Disney princesses up close, especially for a 3 year old. Add a great show and some skates, and that magic is enhanced! Disney On Ice: Dare To Dream is in Sacramento right now! That is my nearest arena, so I just had to take my daughter (3.5 years old), as well as my sister and her daughter. I thought the two little cousins would just love to see the show together. I was right!

The 4 of us went to opening night and it was amazing. Upon arrival we spotted so many little girls in princess dresses and it made me feel like a dope for not even thinking to dress Bea up. She was totally okay with it though. As soon as the show began with Minnie and Mickey Mouse, the little girls squealed with excitement. They practically sat at the edge of their seats through the entire show! Of course, I had snap a picture of the girls in front of the ice, during intermission.

The Dare To Dream show of Disney On Ice began with the story of The Princess and the Frog. I thought it was great how the show was able sum up the entire movie in the perfect amount of time for an ice show. They had to make room for the other two performing princesses, after all. The costumes for The Princess and the Frog were just great! They looked just like the characters in the movie! Then again, Maximus from Tangled also looked amazing! Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen had great chemistry and were so fun to watch.

The excitement just kept on coming because when the story of one princess would finish, another would begin. The Princess and the Frog was followed by Cinderella. Cinderella was gorgeous and the step sisters did an amazing job! They were such a hoot! The mice were just adorable as well. Bea got so excited to see them out on the ice and putting Cinderella’s gown together.

The last princess to make her appearance was Rapunzel from Tangled. This was by far the most amazing part of the show. The acrobatics of Rapunzel and Flynn Rider being raised up and dancing with long hanging pieces of fabric, was just phenomenal. They had to have practiced so hard to accomplish these moves with such ease. The talent of each of the performers was something to behold. They had such energy and smiles for the crowd, which helped the little girls feel right at home!

Something very unexpected happened at the conclusion of the show. Each of the Disney Princesses made an appearance as they skated with their Prince by their side. Bea was just tickled!

I think the only thing I would change would be Prince Charming and Flynn Rider’s wigs. Their hair was a bit funky, but if that’s the only complaint, then they are doing a lot right! The show was so much fun and my daughter is still talking about it! I highly recommend taking your little ones (or big ones) to see Disney On Ice when it hits your area. If you are in my area, then you can still get tickets as the last show will be on Monday, February 18th.


I was provided free tickets to see Disney On Ice: Dare To Dream. All opinions expressed are my own.
