DISCLAIMER: I was provided with complimentary tickets to this performance.
What's more fun than celebrating all of the holidays with your favorite Disney characters? According to my favorite five year old; "nothing!" Last night, we were fortunate enough to get to attend the opening night of Disney On Ice Let's Celebrate, at the Bridgestone Arena, here in Nashville.
This was a party like any other I have ever attended. Hosted by Mickey and Minnie, all my friends were there. Everyone from The Mad Hatter and Alice to Snow White and Dopey and everyone in between, fifty in all!!!
The show starts with a beautiful slow dance between Belle and Lumiere', then there are few words from Mickey and after that, the party jumps into high gear and never slows down.
I've seen several incarnations of the Disney On Ice shows, but this was by far my favorite. The costuming was amazing; it was like a visual feast for your eyes. The sparkles... oh my. Liberace would've been proud! The music was exactly the original (old school) I wanted to hear with just of enough of a modern flair to keep the tweens interested.
The sets and lighting were nothing short of amazing and I love how the producers made sure to include a little something for everyone, old and young.... Fantasia, Lilo & Stitch, The Little Mermaid and even a special visit from royalty. Yes, Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King, who brought along a few of his fiendish friends. In attendance were Cruella Deville, Cptn. Hook, Maleficient and more.
After Mickey and his friends scared those baddies back to where they came from, it was time for a little magic. In her search for answers about love, Minnie invoked the help of a very special lady... her Fairy Godmother.
Along with her Fairy Godmother, Minnie goes on a whirlwind tour with all your favorite Princes and Princesses and finally figures out how she'll "know" if he's the right one.
The show really heats up when the cast goes on a tropical luau with Lilo & Stitch and all their friends. With real fire on the rink, this was one of Micah's favorite parts. Come to think of it, I was really diggin' it too.
There was a little more show, but of course, my camera died, so no more pictures, but we left with a huge smile on our face that lasted all the way home, right up until bedtime. *long sigh*
If you're looking for something fun to do with your family this weekend, in Nashville, I highly suggest snagging a couple of tickets to Disney On Ice and making a day of it. Find a place to eat downtown, swing over to the Tennessee museum (it's free) and just enjoy spending time with each other.
