The show this year is themed Disney On Ice – Let’s Celebrate, which is a magical montage of favorite holidays, festivals and celebrations around the world, including unforgettable Disney characters in scenes that included a Hawaiian luau with Lilo & Stitch, A Halloween haunt with all the Disney Villains, no surprises, this was Ava’s favorite scene, a winter wonderland with Mickey & Mini that was just magical with snow falling, a very merry Unbirthday party and a Royal Ball with all the a lot of the Disney Princesses.

There was a new seating arrangement especially for The Dome this year, which was fabulous. Now instead of floor seating with the little ones scrambling to get a clear view, the new raked seating means that even little Hannah had a complete, unobstructed view throughout the show which was fantastic. No one standing or jumping in front of you to see.

The show is two hours long with an interval half ways through but my girls were mesmerized from start to finish. Amazingly, so was Walter and I really did expect him to complain. For me the show was pure magic, like a fantasy visit to a mini Disney World.

Disney On Ice – Let’s Celebrate is on at The Dome, Johannesburg, from Friday, 26th June to Sunday, the 5th July. With show times at 10am, 2pm and 6pm.

The show then moves to Cape Town at the Grand Arena, Grand West from the Wednesday, 8th July to Sunday, 12th July.

There are family packages available for families of 4, 5 & 6 and you can view ticket prices and buy your tickets here: Computicket.

But be warned! Because it’s Disney license, as with any licensed product, the refreshments and keep sakes are not cheap! This is what R600 looks like spent at the show last night:

We spent R600 at the show last night, what we got were two crowns that came with the show program, a gorgeous photographic journey through the show, two bags of popcorn and one cup filled with slushie. So it’s not cheap, but again, it’s just magical for the kids, but go prepared.

The ONLY criticism I can give the show is this….

There was NO FROZEN!!!! Why Disney? Why? My child spent the entire show asking me when she was going to see Elsa???

But it is an amazing, magical experience and your kids will LOVE it!
