Review: Disney On Ice Passport to Adventure

We took the girls to see the new Disney on Ice show 'Passport to Adventure' last month and it did not disappoint. If you are looking to share a sprinkle of Disney magic with your children we would highly recommend it. We had been to a Disney on Ice show before so the girls were so excited to be going again and were counting the sleeps. They love all things Disney so it was such a wonderful experience for them from the moment we arrived at the venue.

About the show

Passport to Adventure takes you on a trip to visit some Disney favourites such as The Little Mermaid, Peter Pan, Frozen and the Lion King and brings them to life in the most fantastic way. Minnie, Mickey and the gang also make an appearance as they take us round the world with them on a wonderful journey.

The stories are so creatively told and the ice skating lends itself perfectly to the fluid movements of mermaids and fish swimming or Peter Pan and Tinkerbell flying around trying to catch his shadow. The ice provides the perfect stage and with lighting, music and special effects the scene seamlessly changes from a savanna in Africa to a pirate ship in Neverland. It is of course is the perfect setting for a retelling of Frozen!

Perfect for Disney Fans Young and Old

The show is totally captivating and held the girls attention entirely. Aged five, three and two they were in awe of the skaters and to see their favourite characters right there in front of them. The audience are encouraged to join in by dancing, clapping and singing along to the show which features plenty of songs from the movies. There is so much for them to look at and keep them entertained. The cast are incredible and perform with such energy, enthusiasm and skill and they really engage with the audience making you feel part of the show rather than just a spectator. Their costumes are amazing, so bright and colourful with plenty of sparkle which our children loved. We really enjoyed the show too and seeing the looks on the girls faces as they waved at Minnie and Mickey was really special for us.

The cast and staging were fantastic

There are so many lovely surprises in the show from special effects such as bubbles when you are under the sea with Ariel and snow in Arendelle. Our favourite moment was Wendy, John and Michael flying off to Neverland with Peter pan, the girls sat open mouthed as they watched them high above us. There were so many of these wow moments along with plenty of comedic ones too which made the girls giggle.

Useful Information

The show is about 2 hours in duration with a 15 minute interval. We thought it might be cold in the arena so had packed lots of layers but it was absolutely fine. We had told the girls before we left which characters they might see and they chose one of their Disney dolls to bring with them to watch the show too. There is lots of merchandise available to buy and although very lovely, it is very expensive, so make sure you budget for this or bring something from home like we did. There are refreshments available to buy there too including ice slushies and popcorn but again these come with a premium price tag so we took some treats along for the girls to have at the interval.

Such a lovely family day out

If you're looking for something special to do with the children in the lead up to Christmas then this would be perfect.  The show really is fantastic and excellent value for money for what it is, we had such a brilliant time. Passport to Adventure is touring the country, finishing in London on 30th December 2018 and the brand new show 'World of Enchantment' is touring in the Spring next year. You can find out more and book tickets for both HERE.
