Disney On Ice Dare To Dream Skates into Atlanta!

On Wednesday evening, opening night, my daughter, Brookie (the little girl I nanny),  and myself drove down to the Philips for a fabulous evening of princesses!  Disney on Ice Dare To Dream was absolutely amazing, we had a fantastic time!

All week long I had been telling my daughter we’re going to go see princesses soon!  Getting her excited.  She also had recently discovered the movie Tangled, which she adores.  I mean she literally loves “Princess Hair,” that’s what she calls Rapunzel.  She’s watched the movie at least 10 times in the last week.  Then finally the day arrived and I pulled out her princess outfit and dressed her as Cinderella..she was so cute!

 Before the show we were invited to a backstage event where we had snacks, made some crafts, and even got to meet Flynn Ryder and Rapunzel.  OMG, my daughter loved meeting Rapunzel..it was like a dream come true for her.  She gave her a hug, closed her eyes, and had one of the biggest smiles I’d ever seen!  It was too cute!

Meeting Rapunzel for the first time!

For the crafts we made these fabulous tiara’s…that was a lot of fun.  I couldn’t resist making one for myself as well!

Then we headed out to find our seats.  Now the anticipation was at it’s highest.  I bought her one of the snowcones in a cute tangled cup…so she was content while we waited for the show to begin. 

Finally out stated our favorite Disney characters, Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, the entire crew came out and began to describe the story of Princess and the Frog. 

The show went on to tell Tiana’s story, it was really neat how they portrayed Tiana turning into a frog.  My daughter started yelling “ribit ribit!”    The costumes were awesome, they were beautifully put together!

 

After Tiana’s story Mickey and Minnie came back out and started telling Cinderella’s story.  Cinderella’s part was great, it started out with her in raggy clothes and the evil stepmother and stepsisters making fun of her.  Then of course the invitation to the royal ball came in and Cinderalla tried to get her cleaning done when the mice arrived.  The mice were too cute with their squeaky voices singing “Cindereli Cindereli.”  One of the neatest parts to the Cinderella act was when the stepsisters caught Cinderella all dressed in her beautiful gown ready to go to the ball and the ripped it off.  The costume came off in pieces and left only a raggy riped looking once beautiful dress.  The costume must have been velcrowed on in pieces, or something, but it was definitely neat how Feld put that together.  Oh, and my favorite part to the scene was when the Fairy Godmother showed up and made a carriage out of a pumpkin.  When you think about it, it’s hard to portray magic in real life and not on the big screen.  But, it was portrayed fantastic!  A small firework went off and then suddenly the beautiful carriage arrived!  My daughter really “oohed and aweed” at that!

Finally the newest Princess Rapunzel came out.  The background cleverly changed to her tower.  Then out came Rapunzel and my daughter went nuts!  My daughter is only 2 but she knew exactly who that was and she couldn’t have been more excited!

 I have been watching the move Tangled just about every day for the last week, so I now the whole story.  I love the movie, it’s hilarious and really a great movie.  Feld did an excellent job representing the movie.  Obviously the movies has to be shortened to fit into the show, but Feld did an amazing job telling the story for someone who hadn’t seen the movie.  Rapunzel was my daughters and my favorite act.  During the show they did the scene where they’re in the restaurant singing “I have a dream” and the costumes to the “thugs” were too funny!  They looked like characters right out of the movie, ruff and mean!  The coolest part was when Rapunzel swung around on her hair.  There was a lot of acrobatics involved and I was surprised the show took it to that level.  It was very entertaining!

We adored the show, Dare To Dream is fantastic.  If you have a young daughter or if you yourself have every dreamed of being a princess this one show you don’t want to miss! 

This show was produced by Feld Entertainment, and led by two female producers, sisters Nicole Feld and Juliette Feld, which was a first for the company.  I’d say they added a great touch, who knows princesses better than women!
