This post is in partnership with Disney on Ice. I was provided complimentary tickets. All thoughts are my own.
Last week we attended Disney On Ice: Frozen & Encanto on their opening night in San Antonio, Texas. If you recall, we went to Disney On Ice last year, and Brooklyn LOVED it, so we were all so excited that they invited us to see this brand-new show!
Disney on Ice: Frozen & Encanto is hosted by Minnie, Mickey, Donald, and Goofy and tells the stories of these two award-winning movies. You will find that this performance is divided into two 45 minutes halves, with a 15-minute intermission. This show is unique from other Disney On Ice shows because it goes into the details of these movies and plays almost every song.
Disney On Ice: Frozen & Encanto starts with our four favorite friends: Minnie Mouse, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Goofy. As they skate onto the ice, they share how Minnie wants to travel somewhere cold. Then, they ask the audience to close their eyes and think of something cold as the snow starts falling from the ceiling, and we are transported to Arendelle.
The Frozen scenes in this Disney On Ice performance are all narrated by Olaf (the snowman). As Olaf emerges, he tells the tale of Anna and Elsa and how true love can melt a frozen heart. We hear the songs “For The First Time In Forever,” “Love Is An Open Door,” “Reindeers Are Better Than People,” and “In Summer.”
Oh, and of COURSE, the song “Let It Go.”
The entire audience belted out these songs while the incredible ice skaters (acrobats? actors? seriously, all of the above) performed. The show’s first half ended with another appearance by Minnie, Mickey, Donald, and Goofy in a sleigh.
The 15-minute intermission is an excellent time for potty breaks and snacks. We found that lines were pretty long during the intermission, so plan accordingly!
The show’s second half starts again with Minnie, Mickey, Donald, and Goofy. Donald explains that he wants to travel someplace warm, and what better place than to see The Family Madrigal in Columbia? The Casita from Encanto shows up behind them as they share this fun idea.
This half of the show felt like a massive sing-a-long starting with a roar from the audience with the first song, “The Family Madrigal.” Next, we heard “Waiting On A Miracle” and “Surface Pressure” (complete with dancing donkeys – my fave part of the entire show).
We also heard the songs and saw performances to “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” and “What Else Can I Do?”.
As soon as The Family Madrigal and Casita are saved, the show ends with a huge finale featuring all the characters from the show and the song “You Are The Magic” (which you might be familiar with if you have seen Walt Disney World’s Enchantment fireworks).
Disney on Ice: Frozen & Encanto is such a magical show! This show had SO many popular songs, and everyone sang along the entire time. Brooklyn had so much fun seeing these movies play out before her eyes and seeing her favorite characters, Anna and Elsa. If your kids are fans of the movies Frozen or Encanto, this show is for you.
This particular Disney On Ice show will be in San Antonio, TX, until April 2, Fort Worth, TX, April 6-9; Houston, TX, April 13-16; Hidalgo, TX, April 19-23; Cedar Park, TX April 26-30; Little Rock, AR May 4-7 and finally Orlando, FL May 12-14!
Thank you so much for inviting us Disney on Ice, we had such a wonderful time!
Sending love and magic.
