If you are looking for something fabulous to do with the kids this weekend or next week,  there is no better way to enjoy a fun filled family outing than a visit to Disney on Ice Let’s Celebrate at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. My family and I had the privilege of attending the show last evening on opening night and it is absolutely delightful! I have been attending the show every year since I was a child. My love for this post-holiday tradition has only grown with me, and it has become another favorite way to create special memories with my own family.  The show runs through January 5th and there is still time to grab tickets to this absolutely stunning show!  Check out my review for a sneak peek at what is in store…

The shows are always fabulous and this year was no exception with characters and skits that are sure to please everyone – young and old.  Everything about this show continues to amaze me from year to year. The costumes, the music, the colors, the talent – it is all so “magical”. No one ever seems to do it as beautifully as Disney can.  Best of all – it always brings out the “kid” in you no matter what your age.  The lighting makes the costumes glisten and glimmer. The music dances through the air as familiar favorites you cannot help but sing along with set the tone for an unforgettable show. The way the performers glide across the ice is just breathtaking. Could they make it look any more effortless? This show captures all of this – and more. And best of all – it is perfect for people of all ages – making it the absolute perfect family outing.

This year’s show begins with a fun Merry “Unbirthday” Party filled with favorites such as Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy and all of the Mickey Clubhouse familiar clan.  In addition, the party features Alice in Wonderland, Mad Hatter, White Rabbit and other Disney performers .

The show is a nonstop celebration – showcasing everything from Halloween to Valentine’s Day to Mardi Gras to Chinese New Year – Every act is full of energy and delight – sending the crowd gigging, singing and cheering the whole way through.  Get ready for rings of fire on Ice, dancing Chinese Dragons, glow in the dark costumes, pyrotechnics and falling snow!

There is an entire skit dedicated to the princesses – so there is plenty for the little princess fans to enjoy.   The dancing and skating in this particular skit was one of my favorites.  I was in awe at the beauty and gracefulness of each of the princesses as they danced with their prince to their special songs from their movies.

My son was particularly fond of the Halloween skit featuring Jack Skellington and other Disney villians as well as the Fantasia performance and the Hawaiian Luau.  There is no doubt that everyone’s favorite was the awesome Christmas finale featuring the characters from Toy Story.  The crowd giggled and went crazy when all of the characters appeared.

The performers really did a wonderful job interacting with the crowd throughout the show and certainly helped keep even the littlest visitors engaged and entranced by the spirit and magic of Disney!

As one would expect, the finale was everything you would expect it to be – and more. My daughter was on her feet clapping and cheering as each of her favorite characters reappeared one last time. Ending in an explosion of song, dance and fireworks, I was once again reminded why it is that I love this show so much every year – and why I cannot wait to return for next year’s show.  Creating memories like this is a priceless gift that I could not be more grateful for!

A few tips for those attending the show:

  • Leave yourself some time to get to the event. You never know how much traffic you may encounter and it is always nice to have a few extra minutes for a bathroom break, to purchase a snack and to find your seats.
  • The show runs approximately just under 2 hours total including intermission
  • Bring cash for parking. (Event parking at Wells Fargo Center was $16 the night of our show)
  • Park close to the parking lot exits if possible to avoid waiting in long lines to exit after the show.
  • If your child has a costume and likes dressing up, you will find that many kids come in costume.
  • Consider naptimes and bedtimes when choosing a show. The 7:00 performance may be a bit late for young children.
  • Be prepared to wait in lines for the bathroom during intermission. Perhaps bring something along in your pocketbook to keep your child busy while waiting.
  • If your child is sensitive to loud noise, consider bringing earplugs or earmuffs to soften the noise.
  • Dress warmly. The show is on ice and it does tend to feel a bit chilly.

Disclosure: My family and I received a family 4 pack of complimentary tickets to facilitate this review. All opinions, as always, are my ownMany thanks to Feld Entertainment and the Wells Fargo Center for inviting us to attend the opening night show.
