It’s finally cold here in Los Angeles and I’m not talking about our weather! Brrr. Disney on Ice: Worlds of Enchantment has arrived and we got to attend it’s opening night at the Staples Center. This was my first Disney on Ice experience and I loved it as much as my boys did. I’ve been waiting for this particular show to make its way through SoCal -based on the trailer, it seemed to have a good balance of Disney and Pixar characters that I knew my boys will enjoy. It definitely did not disappoint!
The show took us to four different Worlds of Enchantment from Disney and Pixar favorites: Toy Story, The Little Mermaid, Cars, and Frozen. But before our journey, the show hosts, Mickey and Minnie, came out and got us hyped up with dance moves during Mickey’s Dance-Along Pre-show Party!

Our first stop was Toy Story, which happens to be a Pixar favorite with this family. This was a long segment of the show, so its perfect if your kids love the characters as much as mine do. I was really impressed on how well they told the whole Toy Story 3 (on ice) in a condensed time frame. Oh! and the music was so much fun. Danny and I were dancing in our seats to Michael Jackson’s “Leave me Alone,” and other classics like “Age of Aquarius.”

After we watched Andy say good-bye to his toys, our hosts, Mickey and Minnie came back on the ice and took us to the next world – under the sea. The Little Mermaid was a short segment and had some noticeable changes from the the movie, in order to make time. I did love the skating performances as bubbles filled the ice rink, but I was a little disappointment that Ursula didn’t sing one of my favorite villainous songs, “Poor Unfortunate Souls.” It was still a fun and colorful segment, especially with Sebastian’s “Under the Sea,” performance!
|Mickey and the Gang|
After a 15-minute intermission, the second part of the show opens with Mickey and friends (Minnie, Donald, and Goofy) introducing the world of Cars. This was definitely the shortest segment and understandably so…how much can Lightning McQueen and his friends do on the ice! No much. But it was so cool watching life-sized Cars driving on the ice. Everyone around us loved it…just wished Ronan was able to see it. He unfortunately fell asleep during intermission.
