It was our first time at Disney on Ice!
And the verdict: we were totally mesmerised! or at least I was! The performers are just fabulous! To maintain a smile while executing figure skating and look glamorous while in thick costumes and heavy shoes, I take my hats off them. The effort is definitely 100%. The producers added small personal touches such as getting some kids to sit in the teapot and have a spin around the rink (Alice in the wonderland) and having a boy light up lantern with Rapunzel and Prince.
Thanks to the good people at Disney on Ice, we had lovely front seats and caught the skating actions up close.
Would strongly recommend that you (the young at heart!) and your young ones head down to catch this show! Xi En is 5 years old this year and I think that’s about the right starting age to kind-of understand and enjoy the show. The older ones will definitely love the colourful costumes, fireworks and Mickey waving at them!
My favorites of the night: Simba (The Lion King) Act and the finale!
Majestic animal costumes and the loving scene between the 2 main leads in Simba won my votes!
And the finale Act with the various Disney couples – just so fairytale! They live happily ever after!
If you haven’t bought your tickets, you can still get them at: Sportshub website. There are still 1 more show later today at 730pm and 3 more shows each on Sat and Sun.
Some tips if you are going over the weekend:
1) Go early. It’s crowded at Kallang Leisure Mall. Everyone will be trying to grab a bite; so if you plan to have something to eat, do go real early. Otherwise eat before going (strongly advised).
2) On event days, the car park rates are increased! So try to head down early to park at the slightly less expensive charged carpark at Kallang Leisure or open carpark lots nearby.
3) Bring some biscuits/snacks/drinks for the children as there is a short intermission. Or you can purchase popcorn/snacks on sale at the premise. Bring money; they are slightly pricier.
4) Some your children a few Youtube clips before going down. A good hype to create excitement and a prelude so the younger ones will have a rough idea what skating is about.
Lastly, enjoy and have fun as a family! A great family outing without burning too big a hole in the pocket!
