Disney on Ice Presents Frozen A Joy Makin Mamas Review

Disney on Ice is more spectacular than ever with Frozen!

Disney on Ice presents Frozen surprised me by being even MORE visually spectacular than other Disney on Ice presentations I’ve seen. From the incredibly detailed costumes to the incredibly vibrant color palette, the show was eye candy from start to finish.
