Disney on Ice Worlds of Fantasy: Review

Disney on Ice CurtainJust before the holidays, we had the pleasure attending Disney on Ice presents Worlds of Fantasy at Staples Center in Los Angeles. This being my first experience with Disney on Ice, I was curious to see how some of our favorite Disney stories would translate to an ice show. With weeknight traffic, we arrived a little late to spend much time checking out the Princess Pre-Show, which included a display of gowns and even an appearance by Cinderella. It appeared to be a big hit with the little princesses in attendance.

Disney on Ice Mickey MinnieJake was giddy when Mickey and Minnie drove onto the ice, followed by Donald and Goofy. Next up was his favorite, Cars. This was the one part of the show that didn’t involve skaters, but we were entertained by it. It can’t be easy to maneuver all those little cars around the ice surface at once.
Disney on Ice Tow Mater CarsFollowing Cars were The Little Mermaid and The Lion King. Each told a condensed version of the story through well-choreographed musical numbers with limited dialogue. The costumes were great, especially in the Lion King segment.

The one thing I didn’t love about our experience is that the abundance of souvenir stands and vendors wandering throughout the seating area caused a major case of the gimmes. Jake wanted it all, from the popcorn ($7), to the light up spinning toy ($20), cotton candy ($10), drinks ($4) and so on. Who could blame him? It’s easy to see how this could become an expensive night out. During the intermission we finally settled on one treat, the cotton candy, which came with a Tow Mater souvenir hat. Jake was pleased.

“When is Lightning McQueen coming back?”

Then the fairies started flying through the air.

“Cool!”

All in all, we had a great time and I’d recommend the show to Disney fans of all ages. We’ll definitely consider seeing Disney on Ice again the next time they come to town.

There is still time to catch Worlds of Fantasy in Southern California, with shows scheduled at the Long Beach Arena this week, January 6-10.
