Disney’s newest ice show is Frozen-themed, and it’s not hard to guess why. The movie has basically taken all ages by storm. In fact, I think adults and teens love the movie as much or more than the little girls who belt “Let It Go” non-stop.
I think one of my favorite parts of attending the show was seeing my faux-cousin, JJ, have so much fun. I love watching her sing and dance along while getting absolutely lost in the story.
The show opened with Mickey, Minnie, and Goofy teaching the audience about all different types of love. There can be romantic love like Prince Eric and Princess Ariel, but there can also be friend love like Buzz Light-year and Woody. Nemo and his dad prove the power of fatherly love, and finally, Anna and Elsa prove the power of sibling love.
After we saw all the variations of love, the story of Frozen began. We saw a young Kristoff and Sven frolicking through the ice. Then, we saw the infamous scene showing Anna and Elsa playing with Elsa’s powers until Anna is unfortunately hurt. The young skaters were extremely talented despite their size, and I was pretty impressed with their skills.

The story continued as we all heard the cutest (and possible most annoying) song from the film, “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” From there, the show was basically the same as the movie interweaving the songs seamlessly into the story line.
I must say, though, Kristoff was close competition for my beloved Olaf. Sure, I loved the goofball in the film, but the skater who portrayed him in the ice show was phenomenal. He did backflips in skates on ice. I didn’t even know that was possible.
One area of disappointment I had throughout the show regarded the trolls. In the film, the trolls are rocks that transform into actual living trolls in front of your eyes. Of course, that can’t literally happen because unfortunately magic like that doesn’t exist. In the ice show, however, I feel like the “transformation” was really lackluster. Though I don’t know how you would get away with having “rocks” turn into skaters, I was disappointed that Disney didn’t either.
Anna and Elsa were beautiful as was to be expected and both were amazing skaters. They complimented each other well when they skated together, and they were both very animate to watch. But, I do have to mention that Elsa’s hair was lackluster. It looked fake and wiggy (if that’s a word), whereas Elsa’s hair is supposed to be so beautiful in the film.
Overall, I had a great time at Frozen on Ice despite the fact that I am sixteen years old. It was fun to sing along and watch such great talent on the ice. I have been to shows ever since I was little, and I’ve noticed that as I get older, I find new things to appreciate about the show. Happy kommenting :)
