The latest Disney on Ice show, Road Trip Adventures, will have you revisiting some of your favorite Disney and Pixar, films from Mary Poppins Returns to Toy Story 4. The new touring show will span over two-years and will visit over 67 cities, with a cast of 53 talented performers.
What makes this show uniquely Disney is how each performer uses their skills to elevate each film performance, from BMX bike stunts, precision ice skating, and even acrobatic feats from high in the air. Watch an exciting behind-the-scenes look at just what it takes to perform on Disney On Ice from Insider and then read our review of the show below.
We were recently gifted tickets by Feld Entertainment (the production company behind many live shows, including Disney on Ice) for the opening night show in Detroit, MI, and it was indeed a magical night. Once we arrived at the venue, the first thing to do was to buy snacks and merchandise. We headed straight to one of the numerous Disney on Ice souvenir booths that were stocked full with Disney on Ice branded t-shirts, plush characters, light-up wands, cotton candy, and more!
From there, we headed to our seats and waited for the show to begin. The nearly two-hour-long show (including a brief intermission for the Zamboni to resurface the ice) was incredible. This was our first Disney on Ice experience, and it definitely won’t be our last.
One thing we said when driving home was how great it was that Disney on Ice gave us a that Disney Magic feel in our home town — our Son immediately asked if we could see the show again!
The transitions between each film segment were perfectly executed with the most tremendous cheers and laughs from the night going to the scenes featuring characters from Toy Story 4.
The crowd went wild as Sherrif Woody made it to the ice, as the popular tune, ‘Old Town Road’ by Lil Nas X, began to play throughout the arena. Buzz Lightyear, Jessie, and Bo Peep followed along with the crowd favorites of Ducky and Bunny, and of course everyone’s favorite spork, Forky! Watch our Disney on Ice ‘Road Trip Adventures’ highlight video embedded below.
The other Pixar ensemble to take the stage was none other than the Incredibles! The entire Parr family made an exciting cameo in the ‘Road Trip Adventures’ and included their show-saving pal, Frozone (who helped freeze out real fire). Check out the complete list below of all the film segments from the show.
- Mary Poppins Returns
- The Lion King
- Toy Story 4
- Aladdin – Live-Action
- Disney Girl Power Princess Ensemble
During the Disney on Ice performance, there are two cast member emcees who help with the storytelling of the show. These cast members would also pick audience members for unique experiences, such as riding with Mickey and crew in a car on the ice, sitting on an exclusive platform during a performance, or playing carnival games with Buzz and Woody! We did notice that the majority of guests that were chosen for these unique experiences were seated in the VIP Ticket section or in the first row along the ice, so if you would like a better chance at one of these unique experiences, we would suggest purchasing those tickets.
