Disney on Ice: Dare to Dream

Disney on Ice finale Disney princesses and princes
My family and I are big Disney fans. We try to go once a year, especially as Big B gets older and appreciate the wonder and magic of Disney. We recently saw Disney on Ice: Dare to Dream and loved it. It was the first time that we had watched a Disney on Ice show. Even though it was all about the princesses, Big B had a lot of fun.

Disney characters came to life during the performance. It's amazing how well the story lines paralleled the movies, but condensed into about 30 minutes each. Although so much of the plot was left out, they captured the essence of the movies. The entire show lasted 2 hours, with a brief intermission. I was pleasantly surprised at how full the Staples Center was considering it was a school night. I guess we all make exception to experience some Disney magic.

Hands down, the family favorite was Tangled. We all just loved the use of acrobatics and the lanterns. It's also Big B's favorite movie of the three so he was super focused.
