Disney on Ice: Worlds of Enchantment!


My 25th birthday gift from my wonderful (Disney hating) other half, was tickets to the famous tour that I haven't been to for years! When I saw that Disney on Ice was at our nearest arena the week of my birthday I had to go! I would not have been able to afford to go had Jake not been kind enough to order the tickets for my Birthday weeks and weeks in advance so thank you poopy pants!

When the 11th of October finally arrived I had a long, fun time before I even made it to the show - work, drive down to Woodhorn where we saw the Poppies from the Tower of London (separate post coming soon), shopping and lunch with Laura and then finally World of Enchantment time!

The waiting time beforehand only made the anticipation grow and I am sure I was more excited than any of the children sitting nearby so when it started and I was wooping and cheering it was no surprise that people looked at me as if I were crazy...














We had great seats! Just behind the wheelchair area which I found to be not too close so I couldn't see everything in one go and not so far back I couldn't see the skaters faces.
I was petrified that I was going to cry though. I'm a big cryer and don't only leak from the eye holes when I'm sad but when I'm happy, excited, overwhelmed and when meeting Mickey Mouse haha. Luckily I managed to keep my composure for once, but each story was so well done that sitting there as a 24 (&364 days) year old watching some stories from my childhood come to life was very emotional.
Obviously Cars and Frozen aren't that close to my heart - I enjoy Frozen as much as any true Disney fan but it really has gotten out of hand now...though that's another issue. Anyways, despite those two not exactly being my faves, I really enjoyed them and was more amazed at the cars than many of the kids.
I have to say Toy Story was my favorite of course and not only because the story line, props and skaters were amazing but also because I know Woody! Yeah, you know Woody too, but I know Woody as I went to college with him. It was pretty insane to watch someone I know doing what he loves and is amazing at. My claim to fame there eh lol.
















It was unclear whether or not I was going to be able to take any photos so to get so many, I was chuffed! What great tokens to aid amazing memories <3 Overall I have to say from beginning to end the night was truly full of Disney magic and the performers, as expected, were talented beyond belief too! I can't wait to hear what next years show will be!
Did you or are you seeing this Disney on Ice tour? What was your favorite part/who are you most excited to see?

  1. Ahh this looks amazing! When I went back in April, I couldn't get great pictures as they skated so darn fast haha! That's so cool that you know Woody though, that's a proper claim to fame there! I'm glad you had a wonderful time- Toy Story looks like a lot of fun on ice! Also I completely agree with you about Frozen!

    1. Was it the same tour in April?? Or was it the Magical Ice Festival? How did you find it?
      Yeah it's hard to get photos with the lighting and stuff so you gotta have a faff on with settings!

    1. Ah did you?! Where did you see it? I'm sure they aren't rubbish at all! It's a difficult lighting to get good shots in and I missed a few crackers due to under or over exposure :/
      Thank you!

  3. Ah it looks amazing! I do enjoy Cars, but then I'm big Pixar fan and the costumes look amazing! I bet you had a wonderful time and I completely get why it would have been emotional - I'm a total nerd when it comes to specific films, case in point being the recent Jurassic World, where I got emotional just hearing the famous theme playing - I definitely get it. Some stories never leave your childhood. - Tasha

    1. It was brilliant Tasha! Yeah, I love me some Pixar too :)
      The costumes were excellent, the skaters were amazing and I love that I could appreciate it more with it being older.
      Aw bless your heart, I'm glad you can relate!

  4. It looks really good! I've never seen any kind of show on ice, but I do like ice skating. Knowing you, I know how much happiness this would have bought to you and that makes me happy too :) Do they play out all the story, or a shortened version of them?

    1. Aw Kerri that made me cry you saying that haha! Thank you <3 Wait until you see my at Disneyland lol
      They did a little condensed version of Toy Story 3, just 3 scenes from the Little Mermaid and Cars just whizzed about for about 5 mins lol. Oh and Frozen was like a condensed version too! I personally would of liked more of Ariel and less of Elsa ;)
