Disney On Ice presents Worlds of Enchantment Review | Family Day Out

So you are thinking about booking tickets to see Disney On Ice presents Worlds of Enchantment right? But you don't if it would be suitable for your little one, if it is worth the money or will it live up the hype. Well ladies and gents, i had the pleasure of watching the show this week as i was invited along to review it. Continue to read on to get my honest thoughts and feeling on the show:

The journey to the First Direct arena was filled with my 2yo and 4yo belting out Disney songs. Which was a really good way of building up the excitement for the show. I knew that most boys and girls will be dressed up, so i let my lads pick their outfits, naturally the went for superheros. It was great to see so many children dressed up, i didn't see too many mums and dads dressed up, which was a shame. If you are attending the show soon then i highly recommend letting your offspring dress up as well, it all adds to the fun.

If you have purchased tickets then i recommend taking some money along with you to buy toys and gifts. We spent about £40 on two Disney branded flash flights, £12 on a couple of car hats and a program, £8 on two lots of popcorn and £20 on food and drinks from the bar.

A couple of other things to remember before you enter in to the arena:
  • You cant not take in rucksacks 
  • You can not take in large amounts of food or drink 
  • Get there with at least 30 minutes to go - this will give you enough time to que, go to the loo, buy some snacks and look at the toys on sale

What to expect

The show lasts for three hours, with a twenty minutes break in the middle. Being honest for the younger kids that hour and twenty minutes can be a struggle for them; the show held my two year olds attention for at least 95% of that time.

Kicking off the show and keeping your little ones interested during costumes and set changes are Mickey and Minnie Mouse, as well a Donald Duck and Goofy. Their scenes bring big laughs and reinforce the strength of the production.

The first half of the show is dedicated to bring to life some of the best loved scenes and songs from Toy Story and the Little Mermaid

The second half of the show focuses on Cars and Frozen. I was genuinely impressed at some of the stuff they did during each performance. I don't want to give too much away, but expect snow, singing, racing and loud bangs. My boys definitely preferred the later half of the show as it appealed to their personal preferences better.

To give you a quick snapshot of the show i have compiled short clips of each performance to give you a better idea of what to expect.

All in all my wife, the kids and i all agree that it was brilliant, fun and enchanting. The skaters/characters were brilliant and interacted with us throughout the show. The entire crowd was singing along to the songs, clapping and having a good time; there was a feel good factor about the place. The performances do enough to keep your little ones captivated, it might just look like good skating, but they bring the stories to life in such a way that it appears new, yet somewhat familiar.
