As a holiday adventure, my family and I had the priviledge of going to see Disney on Ice presents 100 Years of Magic this past weekend in Toronto at the Rogers Center.

We surprised the kids by not telling them where we were going, which always makes for a super special and exciting time. As we got closer to the venue, the kids continued to make their guesses as to where we were going and what we were doing. As we entered Rogers Center and the kids saw all of the signs that we were there to see Disney on Ice presents 100 Years of Magic, their eyes literally lit up with joy and excitement. My daughter’s exact words were, “Mommy, are we really here to see Disney on Ice like we saw on the tv commercials?” That just goes to show how much children really do pay attention to advertising on the tv.
Our seats were very good, but I truly believe that the show would be just as spectacular and magical no matter where you are sitting. Although the venue is in the Rogers Center, the way they have some sections curtained off makes it a much more intimate venue compared to when the entire Center is open.
The show itself was the perfect length for my 3 and 6 year old with a nice intermission for a washroom and food break. To be honest, I’m always happy when shows are at Rogers Center as you are allowed to bring in your own snacks which makes the wallet and Mommy very happy.
I’ve been extremely fortunate to have seen a Disney on Ice show three times now and I haven’t gotten tired of them, not even one little bit. The music is always what makes it for me as I adore just about every single song that accompanies Disney movies. The lights, the sound effects and the costumes are all so impressive as well. My favourite costumes this time around were from the Nemo Set.
Of course, what makes this experience the most magical for me is to watch my childrens’ reactions to all of the characters who come out onto the ice. Their faces literally light up with awe and excitement and the smiles are so special. My heart truly feels filled with joy and happiness during the entire show.
Mickey and Minney Mouse make excellent hosts for the show. My son kept asking when they would come back on the ice as they brought a certain excitement on every time they arrived.
