Disney on Ice has skated into Orlando and they are bringing new thrills and experiences just for you and your family. I went out to check out the new show last night and I was amazed at what they have done with it. If you have a Princess or Prince who loves all things Disney, you will not want to miss the show this year. I am going to share a Disney on Ice Follow Your Heart review so you know what to expect before going to the show.

Disney on Ice Follow Your Heart Review
If you have a child who is sensitive to strobe lights, sudden loud noises, or some of the villains from Disney you may want to plan accordingly as these elements are part of the show. There are occasional pyrotechnics integrated into the show. It may be good to prepare your child for these. You will also see a few of the villains in this show. If you child is afraid of them, make sure to prepare them for these characters.

Be emotional
Disney on Ice Follow Your Heart Review
This year Riley and all of her emotions join us. Riley has a big game and the emotions are here to help her out. The emotions fit the show so well and had all the kids around me laughing. I love the new show setup where they integrate the different story elements into a bigger story using the emotions. I won’t tell you if the emotions hit the ice, you will have to see the show.

Be ready to Fly!

This year Disney on Ice is stepping it up a notch and adding an aerial component to the show. I loved this adventure above the ice. Not only will Rapunzel spend some time in the air, one other amazing character does a beautiful job of taking to the air. Want to find out who it is? Make sure to get your tickets before they are gone.

Be ready to Remember

Join the adventure with young Dory as we learn that not only does she have parents, but we need to find them! This part of the show does an incredible job of using multiple view points and characters to tell a beautiful story. I may have shed a single tear as Dory asked her parents what would happen if she ever forgot them. This is a beautifully done portion of the show and I definitely enjoyed every minute of it including the knowledge of where the “Just keep swimming” song started.

Be Ready to Shiver

Be ready for some amazing effects as they bring the winter to life and bring you into the magic. It can get a bit chilly but don’t worry, Olaf is there to bring a bit of Summer to the show.

“I am a Feld Entertainment Blogger Ambassador, and in exchange for my time and efforts in attending shows and reporting my opinion within this blog, as well as keeping you advised of the latest discount offers, Feld Entertainment has provided me with complimentary tickets to Feld shows and other exclusive opportunities.”
This week I had the opportunity to head over to Disney on Ice 100 Years of Magic presented by Stonyfield YoKids Organic Yogurt! It was an amazing show and i am so excited to share some of the new things that are offered with this year’s show. The show definitely had some new additions as well as a few of the timeless favorites.

Disney On Ice 100 Years of Magic Review
At the beginning of the show be ready to get up and get active with a little bit of dancing. Because the show is presented by Sontyfield YoKids Organic Yogurt there is a short intro about being the healthiest you that you can be. What better way to exercise than with a fun dance number introduced by Mickey and Minnie? I watched as many kids stood up and had a blast dancing before the show.

Disney On Ice 100 Years of Magic Review Disney On Ice 100 Years of Magic Review
If you love Princesses you will not be disappointed. In the show we get to spend a few minutes with each princess remembering all the wonderful things that brought her to her prince.
Disney On Ice 100 Years of Magic ReviewI bet you can guess which princess and queen steal the show though. That’s right. You will get a wonderful part of the show where Anna and Else relive their wonderful story. I was so happy to see Olaf and celebrate summer with him one more time. Don’t be surprised when the famous song, “Let it go” comes on. Just do like the kids sitting next to me did, and sing along.

Disney On Ice 100 Years of Magic ReviewBecause we are celebrating 100 years of magic we get to see some of our Disney friends who don’t typically visit the show. Be ready to grab shell because the one and only Crush makes his way on to the ice to help Marlin find Nemo. This part of the show was so much fun and I really loved seeing Squirt show off some of his best moves on the E.A.C. with all of his friends.

Disney On Ice 100 Years of Magic ReviewDon’t expect it be just skaters on the ice. What would Mulan be without a larger than life Mushu on the stage Pumba even makes his way on to the ice as well as one of our favorite space rangers and his cowboy pal.

Disney On Ice 100 Years of Magic ReviewDisney on Ice still keeps to some of the amazing tricks we have come to love. With moves like the one pictured above your children and sure to be wowed and amazed.

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus Xtreme Show Review

I was not compensated for this post. I did receive 4 tickets to the show to facilitate my review. All opinions are 100% my own.

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Presents CIRCUS XTREME logo

Last night we headed out to Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Presents Circus Xtreme. To say we were amazed, overwhelmed, and happy with the experience is an understatement. We had such an amazing time! I am going to share some of the highlights as well as what you can expect from the event.

SONY DSCSONY DSC

 

Pre-Show –One of the great things you can expect when you show up is an amazing pre-show. You will be welcome on the floor to see some of the best acts up close and personal. There are also a few fun activities as part of the pre-show. Whether you decide to try on some of the costumes or have a clown dance party you are sure to enjoy yourself.

SONY DSC

Silliness – One of the fun things about the circus is the ability to just be silly for a time. The clowns in this show work well with the main characters to tickle your funny bone. Be prepared to hear giggles and gut level laughs whenever the clowns show up.

SONY DSC

High Wire Talent – This high wire act blew me away! They were truly incredible. Between jumping over one another and the above pictured maneuver that sill had more steps to it they really stepped up the high wire experience.

SONY DSCSONY DSC

 

Animals – Many of the acts included incredible animals doing unbelievable things! Whether you watch an elephant doing a head stand or a tiger doing a jump you are sure to be impressed. The trainer even came out with the elephants and explained where different behaviors could be found in nature. If you don’t love lions and elephants don’t worry. You can enjoy poodles, snakes, camels, horses, and much more.

SONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSC

 

Amazing Stunts- I was absolutely blown away by the different skills displayed at this show. The woman pictured center blasted out of a canon, the man to the left jumped from the heights and still managed to regain his footing. The ladies to the right made all they did look graceful and elegant while wowing you with their skills.

SONY DSC

An incredible show! – You can expect to constantly find amazing things at every turn. I haven’t even touched on half of the amazing things that happened in this show! Get your tickets now before it’s too late!

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus Xtreme will be at the Amway Center through January 11th, 2015. Make sure to get your tickets now.

Marvel Universe Live takes over Orlando!

marvelgroup

A few weeks ago I told you that Marvel Universe Live is coming to Orlando. Last night we spent some time with our favorite Heroes and Villains to see just what this show was all about. I wasn’t sure what to expect. The trailer below gave me a small teaser of what was coming.

While the trailer does a great job of capturing some of the elements of the show it doesn’t begin to capture how amazing this show was!

SONY DSCThe show opens with a great combination of many of the Marvel characters on a large screen and a voice setting the brand new story line up. Unlike many other story lines this show is a unique story line written specifically for the show. This means that even the most die hard fan is sure to have a new experience by coming to this show. They even took a moment to tell people not to try these things at home. As a mom to a very adventurous 5 year old boy I really appreciated this choice!

One of the things that impresses me most about this show is the ability to engage you on multiple parts of the stage. Instead of a traditional stage show or a single leveled show Marvel Live uses every part of the stage.

SONY DSCOne of the great elements of this show is the use of motorcycles. There were some really impressive jumps, tricks, and moves achieved on these bikes. Whether you are watching Captain America jump from high up, Black Widow balance on one wheel, or watching Wolverine and Bruce Banner do jumps you are sure to enjoy the bikes.

Not only do they do a great job of incorporating multiple heroes and villains, Marvel Live manages to combine an action packed experience with an engaging story line.  SONY DSC

If you are wondering about whether or not this show would be fun for your kids here are a few things to keep in mind when ordering tickets.

  • This show is loud. – If you have a child with sensory issues it will help to know that there are some small fireworks, explosions, and loud sound bits. I find that noise cancelling head phones are great for a child who has a problem with these sounds.
  • There will be some violence. – There are many fight scenes in this show. There will be no blood or gore and it will stay clean. However, knowing that this is a part of the show will help you decide if you are sensitive to violence.
  • The show is very engaging. – My 5 year old typically will not sit still for a movie or show. However, he spent the entire show on the edge of his seat! I don’t think I heard a word from him other than, “Wow, Cool, Awesome!”
  • The show is very adult friendly. – Some shows do a great job of writing a story line for kids and not for parents. This is not that show. You will be able to enjoy this show just as much as your children!
