Review: Disney on Ice Passport To Adventure

Disney On Ice provides a Passport To Adventure.

Lots of eager children waited with baited breath for the show to start, their glow toys dazzling the audience. Massive applause signalled the entrance of Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Donald and Daisy Duck and their buddy Goofy, who opened the show with hints of the forthcoming adventures.

Then the show really roared to life with a brilliant performance of the Lion King.  Favourites Simba and Pumba stole the show, of course.

Next up was the wonderful (and my personal favourite) Little Mermaid. Every time I see this show, I can’t help but be captivated by the undersea section.  It has a special place in my heart. Arial and Sebastian are joined by the most vibrant fish, starfish, and fellow characters from the film.  My little boy, Ollie, held my hand extra tight when the scary Ursula appeared, but the bubbles falling from the sky during our favourite song, Under the Sea, had him bopping in the aisles.  Truly awesome.

Next we said ‘aloha’ to Lilo and Stitch and again the Hawaiian costumes and scenery made it more than a pleasure to watch.

The Peter Pan finale was incredible.  Peter was fun and flamboyant, and the effervescent Tinkerbell sprinkled fairy dust over the whole performance. There were boos and hisses galore when the dastardly Captain Hook and the bumbling Mr Smee appeared and an amazing dance routine from the pirates just topped it all off brilliantly.

Whether you are 2 or 92, you can’t help but get immersed in this show.  The sparkling costumes, the quality of the dancing from these amazing ice stars and the unforgettable toe-tapping tunes make it a night to remember for everyone, not just the little ones.

Disney on Ice Passport to Adventure is on at the NIA, Birmingham until 4th November.

There are both matinee and evening performances and tickets are priced from £14.00 to £37.00.

Tickets were given to Have A Lovely Time by DB Promotions Ltd.
