I have to rush off to an appointment, so I can’t tell you everything I want to tell you about Disney On Ice Presents Worlds of Fantasy right now, and I can’t go through all my pictures fast enough to get them all up for you before I go, so I’ll come back later. But right now I need- NEED!- to tell you that the Little Mermaid, Tinkerbelle, and Cars segments of this show are some of the very best things I’ve seen from Disney on Ice. I wasn’t really expecting to be dazzled- I mean, after a while, can they really keep topping themselves? If there’s anything decades of movie sequels have taught us, it’s that eventually even the best things run out of steam… but if that’s a rule, then this is the exception. I was charmed by the “water” effect created by the skaters with big pieces of blue fabric, I was delighted by the “Cars” team racing around the ice, and while I’ve never given Tinkerbelle much thought, since her rise to stardom came a little after my time, I have to say the Tinkerbelle segment of this program was sweet, well executed, and had just the right level of tushie humor for the intended audience.
As for the Little Mermaid segment, Ariel is no stranger to Disney on Ice presentations, but she has outdone herself this time. It’s never easy to capture a classic in a few minutes. You always risk leaving out someone’s favorite part, but Under the Sea and Kiss the Girl were satisfying and left me wanting more without feeling disappointed.
After the intermission, the final segment focuses on Toy Story 2 and features all your favorite characters from that movie. Personally, it didn’t do as much for me as the other segments did, but your mileage may vary.
If you’ve been to Disney on Ice before and are wondering if this show offers anything different than the ones you’ve seen before, the answer is YES. Yes, it does, and it is truly delightful.
See show information below, and I’ll bring you more show photos as soon as I possibly can. If you’ve already made plans to go, HAVE FUN!
