This past Thursday, Disney on Ice and Feld Entertainment invited my family to be there guest at Disney on Ice Presents Dream Big Opening Night in Hartford, CT at the XL Center. Today, I would like to share with you my review of Disney on Ice Presents Dream Big. This was our fourth Disney on Ice show and I swear, every year it gets better and better! I love that we get to experience a little bit of Disney magic without going to Disney World. The awe in my daughters eyes and smiles on their faces could have qualified for a Disney commercial and every year they look forward to going. Of course this year they were so excited for Frozen! Disney is truly a master at creating family entertainment that is not only flashy and fun but strikes a sentimental chord between parents and children. And last night, Disney did just that, plus more.

Favorite Moments: (may contain spoilers)
- Aladdin is one of our favorite movies, watching it come to life on ice was amazing! We couldn't stop dancing and singing. Plus, we really loved all the stunts.
- Sleeping Beauty was incredible. It was very intense, but we loved the fire breathing dragon.
- Sophia absolutely loved Frozen, especially Olaf. As did Lily and I. It was amazing to hear the crowd sing every single song!
Overall, Disney on Ice Presents Dream Big was incredibly magical. The skaters are truly skillful and the costumes were beautiful. The characters look like they could have stepped out of the original Disney films.We loved all the acrobatics. The props, the stage, and special effects were wonderful and what made the show oh so magical. The stories include fun side characters such as Mickey and Minnie, Aladdin and Princess Jasmine, Ariel, Tiana and Prince Naveen, Aurora, Maleficent, Olaf, Elsa, Anna and so many more. And the music, was perfect. We enjoyed dancing and singing with the characters the entire show.
This is an experience my daughters won't soon forget. They loved the show. My oldest Lily was very into the acrobatics this year, as she's a dancer. She couldn't believe her eyes watching the skaters. My youngest Sophia was so excited for Frozen. She sang every song and interacted with all the characters. When I asked them what they enjoyed best, Lily said right away all the dancing and music. Sophia said watching Elsa sing.
