Disney on Ice Presents Frozen!

I've been talking about it for months - Disney on Ice coming to the Patriot Center at George Mason University in Fairfax, VA (Northern Virginia/DC Metro area).  I may be a boy to two boys, but we all love Frozen and knowing this was coming to town, I jumped on the chance to take my family.

The four of us headed out for an early dinner and made our way to the Patriot Center with plenty of time.  I highly recommend aiming to arrive at least 60 minutes prior to showtime to allow time for parking - it took us about 30 minutes!  When we finally got inside, we were overwhelmed with Princesses - so many little girls and even a few kids at heart - were dressed as Anna, Elsa, and even Olaf!  The food stands were selling all types of food and the merchandise tables were overflowing with lighted displays of toys, dolls, and too many other trinkets that had my boys watching for a good long while!

I will admit - we've definitely come home from these events with a lot of.... stuff... but this time, we held strong and said no!  If you are planning, the prices ranged from $14-$40.

The show started by having some of the cast come out to pump up the crowd - shortly into the warm up, they introduced the 'hosts' of tonight's show - Mickey and Minnie Mouse!!  After skating around, and talking, for a few minutes, they brought out some friends: Goofy, Donald, Ariel and Prince Eric, Snow White and Prince Charming, Buzz and Woody, even Timon and Pumba!

After the wonderful introduction, the show began - just as you would expect... Sven, Kristoff, and ice.  Then, young Elsa and Anna played, sang, built a snowman, and skated.  The lighting was not conducive to my camera skills, so it was difficult to get all the best shots, but I wanted to share some!

We met all of the characters to expect in Frozen - Elsa and Anna, obviously, Hans, Sven, Kristoff, Olaf - but even the Duke of Weaseltown, trolls, wolves...

The story is just about exactly what you would expect - a few minor changes to fit the stage and a shorter time, but it was fantastic!

Disney on Ice: Frozen is visually stunning - the choreography is even stronger than in the previous Disney on Ice show that I attended last fall.  The story line is stronger, yes, but it's the colors, sets, lights - the show is so incredibly vibrant!  My husband, being the boy, said that Marvel Universe Live! had more fun pyrotechnics and was more exciting, but I enjoyed the bits of flash, snow, and beauty that Disney on Ice: Frozen offered!

It's probably completely sold out, even with the extra shows - but if you get the chance, definitely go!  This show was so much fun - I wish my boys had more energy to really enjoy it as much as I did!
