There was much excitement here yesterday as last night we went to see Disney On Ice: Passport to Adventure at the Arena, Birmingham.
As regular readers will know, we are all about Disney here at the moment as we are off to Disney World next summer, so this show was brilliant timing to get us all in the Disney mood. And even better, we surprised the kids by taking them along to the Meet and Greet before the show, which delighted them!
A little about the show…

Upbeat music, lovable characters and unforgettable moments make Disney On Ice presents Passport to Adventure an experience your family will cherish forever!”
We were excited, and couldn’t wait for it to start!
We got to see Zootroplis stars at the start, and then Disney favourites anchored the whole performance, introducing each act as we travelled around the world with them.
The show was in two acts of fifty minutes each with an intermission in between, and my two were entranced from start to finish. Little Man loves Peter Pan so was delighted when he made an appearance, especially when chased by the villainous Captain Hook! Boo adores Frozen, don’t we all?!
We were singing, swaying, cheering and completely absorbed by it from start to finish. It was very similar to their Silver Anniversary show that we saw last year, and it was skated so well. So many familiar songs were packed into it, from Hakuna Matata through to Let It Go and favourite characters were cheered as they each made an appearance.
It was spectacular and it was magical. A night to remember and one that has us even more keen to get to Disney World now!
