Review of Opening Night of Disney on Ice Dare to Dream at the TD Garden


Playing the TD Garden Over School Vacation Week - Feb. 17-Feb. 26, 2012
This past Friday, my husband and I took Savannah out for a night on the town.  We dropped her sister, Arabella of with my parents for a few hours, and then headed into Boston to take in the opening night show of Disney on Ice Dare to Dream.  I wanted it to be a surprise, so we didn't tell Savannah what we were doing.  And, as soon as we walked into the arena and she saw the merchandise stands, filled with Disney princesses, as well as all the little girls walking around in their favorite princess costumes, her eyes lit up.  

Last month, we brought her to Disney on Ice 100 Years of Magic show in Hartford, CT, which was great.  This was the first ice show Savannah attended, and the first I attended with a daughter of my own.  Growing up, my parents would bring my brothers and I to these wonderful ice shows.  I always loved walking into the arena and feeling the cold air against my face.  And, as soon as the lights went out, and the began, I was mesmerized by the ice skaters and cast of characters. 

With this show, I was not sure how Savannah would react, as she has become an instant Toy Story fan, and watches at least one of the three movies each week.  And, each night, she brings her Jessie doll to bed with her.  We have seen numerous princess movies, and she enjoys them, especially the music and dancing.  She loves Cinderella and Princess Tiana -- that is -- next to Jessie, Woody and Buzz :-)

But, as soon as the show began, she was captivated by the beauty of skaters and the stories.  And, when intermission came, she didn't want to leave her seat, and wanted the show to continue.  When the show finally resumed, she couldn't stop dancing, clapping and smiling.  She was even getting the little girls in front and behind us into the show, and moving along with her.  The entire arena was packed with families, which consisted of both boys and girls.  I even saw a few boys dressed as princes walking around -- boy, were they handsome!  At the end of each character story, the crowd would go crazy with applause.  It was hard to choose a favorite performance, as all the ice skaters put on an amazing show.  

If you have little ones who love Disney princesses, and live in or around the Boston, MA area, why not consider ordering ticket to Disney on Ice Dare to Dream, which is playing this week, during school vacation week.  This show will entertain both adults and children alike.  Having seen this show firsthand, I can't stop raving about it with friends.  Even my husband enjoyed the show, and he is not usually a fan of ice shows.
