Last night, we went to Disney On Ice: 100 Years of Magic. It was incredible!

You can feel the magic into yourself. You can feel all types of things, exciting to you. I felt that way! It was a two hour show - I wish it was 10 hours long. I wish that the Little Mermaid section had been a little bit longer, it was too short! The section on the Incredibles could have been better, with more action, but it was pretty good. The clothes designer in the Incredibles didn't wear ice skates, I wish she had, because she could have twirled all over.

The Lion King was the best! I thought it was magnificent! I wished that there had been a Mary Poppins, and also a Tinkerbelle. There were many stories of Disney Princesses -Pocahontas, Beauty and the Beast, Snow White, Jasmine, and more.

In the beginning of the show, there was a zamboni to clean the ice. It was fake, though - Mickey and Minnie and Donald and Goofy figured it out and the genie popped out!

Before we went, I looked on youtube and watched many videos. There were many kinds of Disney On Ice. Our Disney on Ice was called 100 Years of Magic and you can see the genies twirl - 20 genies - in the Aladdin part!

There were lots of kids there. We sat in the Handicap area and it had a great view. It was so cool! The stage looked cool - it is actually a basketball court, but they covered part of it with ice. There was a huge castle and people could climb up on it! It is cool and awesome and you can see lots of things there.

There are lots of Disney things for sale. There was a guy walking by, selling toys, and he was wearing a light-up crown! I also laughed at the huge sticks of cotton candy, these guys carried them and ran all around the arena. If you bought the cotton candy, you could get a crown with Mickey ears on it.

The ice skaters were wonderful. They did such beautiful dances! The Lion King did the best skating - it made me want to ice skate more. In the Lion King, the warthog had one pair of stuffed legs, for his front legs. His back legs were real. I wonder how skated, sort of bent over like that. He also jumped and had fun!

Nemo was great - I wished it was a little bit longer. It was cool - there was a shark that was actually 2 skaters!

Pinocchio was cool - they got swallowed by a HUGE whale! At the end, after Small World, there were fireworks! It was totally crazy fun.

I recommend Disney on Ice: 100 Years of Magic! It was wonderful - awesome. I had never been to a Disney on Ice, but I am sure we will go to another one. It was great fun!

    Great post!

    You know what I wish? I wish we had one of those cool fake Zambonis at the hockey games I watch. Wouldn't it be a surprise for the visiting team to see a genie pop out!!??!?
