Follow your heart straight to adventure with Disney On Ice and their 2017 production entitled Follow Your Heart. The first part of this year’s show follows the story of Riley from Inside Out. Very cleverly the plot intertwines many classic Disney tales while exploring Riley’s huge range of emotions. Rage brings Beauty and the Beast to the stage. In five minutes the highlights of that movie – Be Our Guest, the Beast’s transformation, Tale As Old As Time – are performed. When fear takes charge of Riley, the Evil Stepmother, Snow White, and the 7 dwarfs tell their tale. Doc, Sleepy, Grumpy and all the other dwarfs are ridiculously adorable. When Riley was in need of inspiration who showed up? The Disney Princesses! I was thrilled to see the princesses championing powerful characteristics: determination, bravery, curiosity, kindness, intelligence, and compassion. Get ready to be dazzled by Ariel’s and Rapunzel’s performances…WOW!
After intermission get ready for a smorgasbord of Disney entertainment. First up is Finding Dory. While I haven’t seen the movie I certainly got the gist of the plot thanks to the Disney on Ice 10 minute synopsis. My boys were delighted by the brief appearance of the beloved Toy Story characters. An audience-participation hoe-down led by Jessie, Buzz, and Woody had the whole audience yelling YEE-HAW!
Finally we were whisked off to the wintery world of Arendelle. This year’s version of Frozen saw Anna re-telling the story to Olaf. By the way, be sure to pay attention when Olaf comes out on stage, his coming-to-life is rather impressive! The show ended with a rocking version of “Let It Go”. Mickey, Minnie, Goofy & Donald came back to say good night to everyone and send the entire audience out the door humming a peppy tune.
