After having the D&C on Thursday, I really didn’t want to be out in public, much less at a Frozen On Ice show! But we got these tickets as one of Savannah’s Christmas presents and she was really excited. So Paul and I took little Savvy this past weekend and a friend and her daughter came with us.
I have been to the Thomas & Mack here in Las Vegas hundreds of times but I have never been to any of the Disney On Ice shows so I had no idea what a good seat location would be. Of course, I turned to fellow bloggers for some advice! Sadly I couldn’t find a whole lot of information for my specific location but I did read something important! I read somewhere that a first time Disney On Ice family sat basically right on top of the ice. I was initially thinking those would be the best seats but found that you don’t get the full effect of the show sitting so closely. I also saw that there is a front of the stage and while the performers do a pretty good job at playing to every seat, the majority of the show faces one way. For those familiar with Thomas and Mack or looking to get tickets, we sat in section 113 in row H. Turned out to be the perfect seats!
She was absolutely not happy about the seats. Being so small she wasn’t heavy enough to weigh the seat bottom down so it was uncomfortable for her. Wish I would have taken that into account before buying her seat! Her ticket basically went towards holding our purses and random stuff. She was perfectly happy to sit in someone’s lap, which also helped her to see over the people in front of us.
She was pretty cranky about her seat situation so it was a relief to see the show start with some of her other favorite characters. They even got Pumba out there! But really the star of the show was Ariel! Look at not just her outfit but that body! Makes me excited to go Paleo next week..
The show was okay. Totally something I could have lived without seeing but it made me so happy to hear the girls singing along to the songs. Or in Savannah’s case, trying to sing the words. The show sticks pretty true to the movie with only some minor changes. There is a brief intermission halfway through that made Savannah super cranky. We had to get up and get snacks. Absolute worst idea! Every parent with a cranky child is trying to get snacks and merchandise during intermission. I chose the 11:30 AM showing to plan around her nap time but she still got irritable.
Her favorite part was seeing how they do “Marshmallow.” It was pretty cool to see how Elsa “magically” grows him.
It’s all pre-recorded and lip-synced but the kiddos didn’t seem to notice. The mechanical Sven was kind of creepy but again, Savannah had no inkling that he wasn’t alive.
I really didn’t want to go but I’m so glad that I did. Savannah got some more use out of her Halloween costume and it was somewhat relaxing to get out of the house and have something to look forward to. Without a doubt I would do a Disney On Ice show again but I would have us eat before the next one! (Food choices were slim.)
