What is a Good Age for Disney on Ice? Is Disney on Ice okay for toddlers? Disney On Ice is a wonderful event that I remember well from my childhood. It is a magical evening of creating memories when a Disney vacation isn’t within reach.
After experiencing Disney On Ice: Worlds of Enchantment last night, I am here to answer your question.
Let me first tell you a little bit about the show. You’ll have a chance to see some of your favorite characters come to life in a fun and toe-tapping way.
It’s okay, we all know the words to “Let It Go”. No judgment.
The effects are brilliant in visually bringing the movies to the ice. You’ll love the new way favorite Disney tales are told. As for the question “What Is a Good Age to Disney On Ice?”, let’s answer that.
What Is a Good Age for Disney On Ice?
I had reservations if my two-year-old son would be interested in the show. I figured he’d last for a little while with the lights and characters.
My five-year-old daughter, I didn’t think would have any issues. Surprisingly, neither one did!
From start to finish, my son was mesmerized. When Mickey first appeared my son squealed with delight and then sat with his eyes fixated.
He never took his eyes off the ice for very long. Even during intermission, he did very well.
I believe there are enough color, music, and entertainment going on during the show, that any child above two will do well.
They encouraged us to dance and sing along during the show. This left a comfortable environment for kids.
I am not sure how other areas are but at our show, there were plenty of bathroom stops. Something that is needed with little ones. They had a restroom at nearly every arena entrance.
Keep In Mind
Souvenirs are always something worth saving a little extra money for. You will need to expect to pay around $14 for a light-up cup with slushy or $16 for a Lightning McQueen toy car.
I’ve always expected this, however. I found that my kids felt more involved when they were able to enjoy something from the show.
Don’t forget to bring a jacket!
Some event centers do require payment for parking. Ours did not at Kent ShoWare Center by parking across the street in the public parking garage.
The staff was incredibly helpful and full of smiles. It was a smooth and fun evening all the way around.
If you have a Disney loving family, as I do, I recommend Disney On Ice for a planned family outing.
I hope your children will be as fascinated as mine were. Find your local show, date, times and tickets at DisneyOnIce.com.
What is a good age for Disney on Ice? I think from toddler to adults are perfect for enjoying the entire show.
There are so many fantastic stories happening on the ice that kids relate to that I think they will be perfectly entertained. Plus, there is an intermission in the middle of the show for potty breaks.
Seats can sometimes be a little cramped in arenas so keep that in mind if your kiddos need a place to let off some energy. Many Disney on Ice events offers photo opportunities and things to do and see in the foyer before the show.
If your younger kids love movies like Toy Story, Beauty and the Beast, etc. they will probably relate well to the show.
The stories just before intermission and the final story tend to be the longest, so if you need to leave a little early to catch the restroom or beat the traffic, that is good to know. Especially if little ones are tuckered out before the show ends and have drifted to sleep.
Use your best judgment and go in with an open schedule. With those two things, your family is sure to enjoy themselves.
