Back in April we went to the Disney on Ice Magical Ice Festival for Eliza’s birthday and she adored it, with her favourites the Little Mermaid, Rapunzel and of course Anna and Elsa on the ice, acting out her favourite films so when I saw that Disney On Ice Worlds of Enchantment was on at the O2 over Christmas and New Year I knew we would have to go.
Last time I took Isaac but he wasn’t impressed that it was all Princesses so this time he didn’t want to go, so I took my nieces Mollie and Holly with me. I am kicking my self now as both him and Sebby would have loved it as it featured not only the Toy Story Characters but some of the cast of Cars too.
Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy were the compere’s for the evening and the first show on the ice was the Toys Story Gang. The toys, featuring all our favourites, were back in town with heroic action when Buzz Lightyear, Woody, Jessie and the Toy Story gang escape from the rambunctious tots of Sunnyside Daycare and race for home, in their most daring adventure ever!
There was parachuting, flying and of course skating – how some of them managed in their huge costumes, I will never know, but it was fun, fast paced and the girls loved it.
Next we got to dive into adventure with Ariel and The Little Mermaid’s undersea kingdom. Sebastian lead a fabulous production of Under The Sea with lots of colourful sea creatures gliding around the ice and we all cheered when the Prince fell in love with Ariel and Ursula’s curse was broken.
We had a short break before Mickey and Minnie arrived back on the ice, this time in their trust car. Only it appeared that they had some car trouble and despite Goofy’s valiant efforts to fix it they needed a tow truck………..there were cheers from the audience as Mater arrived.
One by one some of the residents of Radiator Springs arrived on the ice with Lightning McQueen making an entrance through pyrotechics. We then got to see Mater and the crew of Disney Pixar’s Cars race across the ice.
The final show of the night whisked us away to the wintery world of Arendelle with sisters Anna and Elsa and pals Olaf and Kristoff from Disney’s Frozen, as they learn that true love comes from within.
Disney on Ice World of Enchantment has added more dates and will now be on at the O2 London from 22nd December 2015 – 3rd January 2016.
