Disney on Ice Rockin’ Ever After – Show Review

D33_300x220

Last night we took our 5 yr old daughter and 7 yr old son to Feld Entertainment’s Disney on Ice Rockin’ Ever After at the Rogers Centre in Toronto.  WOW is all I can say!  We have taken our kids to lots of live shows but I must say this was by far one of my faves…oh and the kids loved it too!!  If you are toying with the idea of taking in this show before it leaves on Sunday, don’t wait and just buy your tickets because you do not want to miss it.  You can use code COMAV to save up to $6 on tickets at Ticketmaster.ca

My overall review of the show is that the choreography, musical numbers, awesome figuring skating, costumes and set design is simply awesome! There is nothing I can honestly say that disappointed us.   The four main stories they present are Little Mermaid, Rapunzel, Brave and Beauty and the Beast.  My 5 yr old put it best when she said that each show they presented was like the movie in fast forward but they acted out all the best parts.  Even if you had never seen any of the movies you will totally get the story line.  My son who is 7 was totally sceptical about going to what he referred to as a “princess show” but let me tell you that he was the one that laughed the hardest and clapped the loudest.

As the lights went down and the crowd cheered the excitement was just beginning!!  Your hosts for the show are the ever loveable Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy.  They are present throughout the evening as they introduce characters and help tell the stories. The show starts off with some musical numbers where the colourfully dressed performers ice dance to songs like “Girls Just Want to Have Fun”, “Vogue” and “We Got the Beat”, so right from the beginning they had the parents captivated.   As always, they throw in some humour which had the young and old(er) laughing in their seats.  A quick but humorous visit from Pinnochio and the evil step sisters and the show is underway.

Little Mermaid was the first movie they acted out and to be honest if that had been it for the show, I would have been equally amazed.  They performed all the favorite songs from the movie like “Part of Your World” and “Under the Sea” and included some fave characters like Flounder, Sebastian and of course Prince Eric.  The best part of this segment is how they played out Ariel’s transformation to human as she spun above the ice doing some acrobatics while the crowd cheered.   This is where you really began to notice the amazing costume designs and I have to say that the Ursula costume was great!  In the end of course, the crowd was thrilled when Ariel ended up with Prince Eric.

Rapunzel is one of the fave movies in our house and this portrayal reminded me why.  Rapunzel’s costume was awesome! The segment begins with the funny rowdy locals and are joined by Rapunzel and her ally Flynn for a fun adventure of comedy, song and fantastic skating footwork.  Ever seen a horse on skates?  Well, you will during this segment as the always funny Maximus hits the ice.  The hands down best part of Rapunzel was when they released the lanterns!!

After a quick intermission, Brave was next on the night’s agenda. My daughter has seen Brave many times but for some reason I have to admit I have never seen it.  After seeing the Disney on Ice presentation of it, I can’t wait to see it.  The Scottish music, storyline and characters were great.   The special effects had the crowd cheering as the suitors vied for Merida’s hand in marriage.  Merida’s brothers were absolutely funny and highly entertaining.  My son loved how they teased her by making faces at her, pulling her hair and flipping up her skirt like all little brothers do.

Who doesn’t love the story of Beauty and the Beast?  Again, they told the story fantastically through Gaston, Belle and the Beast.  I couldn’t take my eyes off the Beast as his mannerism were hilarious and his costume was SO well done.  Enjoy as the ice is filled with colourful skaters and breathtaking scenery as they entertain you with “Be Our Guest” with some of your favourite characters like Belle, Lumière, Mrs. Potts, Chip and the other Enchanted Objects.  The end scene when Gaston and the Beast fight for Belle will have you on the edge of your seat. The show comes to and end and there are smiles everywhere!!

Another little highlight which I think deserves a mention is the extra thought put into the snacks by Feld Entertainment.  After my daughter polished off her deliciously sticky and yummy cotton candy I was delighted to find a wet wipe in the bottom of the bag.  Let me say that it was a pleasant surprise and a much needed addition to the bag.  Yep, sometimes it’s the small things that can make you smile!

Don’t forget to bring some extra money for the souvenirs because as always there is no shortage of spinning, shiny, light up collectables …. you name it, your kids will be mesmerized and want one of everything.  Our kids settled on cotton candy that came with a tiara, popcorn in a collector bucket, boomerang and a Chip mug.
