They’ve done it again!

Disney on Ice Worlds of Enchantment is as fun as you might think! You’ll experience four fantastic Disney adventures: Toy Story, The Little Mermaid, Cars and Frozen with special guest appearances from Mickey Mouse, Minnie, Pluto, and Donald Duck!

Each vignette has the best scenes from the movie as performers skate and dazzle the audience.

My girls (7 and 4) were sold from the beginning – singing their hearts out to each and every song throughout the performance!

Toy Story was my favorite!  Toy soldiers came flying down from parachutes, aerial acrobatics dazzled and the Barbie and Ken duet was a riot. They skated together to classic oldie songs we grew up with. This is just as fun to watch, as an adult, as it is for the kids.

The Little Mermaid was also a huge hit – as usual. Sebastian came clawing out of his shell and bubbles rained down on the audience. Ariel and all her friends zipped around in their beautiful costumes. Ursula was so great, her skating just incredible – so good – she almost had me rooting for her. Almost.

The Cars tribute was incredible and as Lightning McQueen made his entrance, the crowd screamed in excitement. My girls aren’t really huge Cars fans – but they still loved it.

And of course, what would a Disney show be without Elsa and Anna?! The cast did a phenomenal job at recreating the movie, Frozen, while getting the audience to sing as they turned the arena into a winter wonderland with snow. Olaf is always my little one’s favorite – she didn’t look away for a moment!


The show is fun and flies by quickly. We highly recommend it!

Here are some tips and information to help you be prepared:

1.) Doors generally open an hour before the show.
If you have young ones, it’s good to arrive a few minutes early to find your seats, have a last minute potty break (the lines get LONG), and grab any food you may crave.

2.) Most of the toys offered in the booths when walking through the arena are offered at your seat.
Happy workers come through not only with cotton candy, snow cones, and popcorn, but with any light up toy, wands, hats and souvenirs you can imagine! No need to get up, drag your kids to concession – they’ll come to you and they take cash or credit.

3) There are plenty of parking lots open – we parked in the HARBORCENTER lot. It was $10 and is secure and covered – so we didn’t have to clean the snow off! We didn’t even have to walk outside – there is a tunnel on the 3rd floor right into KeyBank Center.

4.) There is a short intermission about half way through.

The show runs at KeyBank Center through January 27th. Tickets are on sale now.  Tickets range from $19.50-$114.50 (includes $4.50 facility fee) and can be purchased at the KeyBank Center Box Office, online at, or by calling 888-223-6000.
