Mickey and his friends brought a wonderful and “magical” event to Nassau Coliseum.
Disney On Ice: Mickey & Minnie’s Magical Journey features Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy and Goofy sharing some of their magical journeys through various Disney movies. The performance includes The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, Lilo & Stitch and Peter Pan. Each “Act” detailed the movie in a shortened version. This fun-filled ice production allows the whole family to be transported to the Pride Lands with Simba and Nala, see what trouble Ariel gets into under the sea, visit the islands to say “Aloha” to Lilo & Stitch and watch Peter Pan and Tinkerbell in their latest adventure in Neverland.
The show opened to Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy and Goofy all dressed in cute safari outfits, ready to go on their safari adventure with the The Lion King cast. The stage was set up with a top stage with a staircase that leads to the main stage, the ice. The Lion King’s performance includes Rafiki’s wise and insightful narrations paired with musical numbers to classics such as “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King” and “Hakuna Matata.” Along with a well skated performance of “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” by Simba and Nala.
Mickey and friends skate back on stage and want to sing and dance. Mickey tells them he knows the perfect song they can sing and dance to, “Fathoms Below” from The Little Mermaid. This led you perfectly into your next adventure. First on the ice is none other than the singing and dancing crab named Sebastian to sing and dance to his hit “Under the Sea”. They even recreated one the most important scenes of the movie, Ursula’s deal to turn Ariel into a human for three days. This scene was recreated perfectly. Ursula and her green eel minions take to the ice to take Ariel’s voice and transform her into a mute human. Lastly Prince Eric and Ariel deliver a jaw-dropping and breathtaking performance while Sebastian and sea creatures sing “Kiss the Girl.”
Mickey and friends come back and want to hula dance, it’s time for Lilo and Stitch’s section of the show. Their section is full of toe-tapping, fun renditions of Elvis songs and a story about the importance of family or “ohana” in hawaiian. Lilo and Stitch get down dancing to songs like “Devil in Disguise” and “Burning Love.”
Mickey and friends are now ready for a high-flying adventure in Neverland with Peter Pan. This section is complete with flying, many props and swordplay. Peter Pan had a cool skating number with his shadow, the audience helped bring life back into Tinkerbell and Captain Hook and the pirates sing “A Pirate’s Life” in a huge pirate ship. One of highlights would be the technical sword fight number between Captain Hook and Peter Pan ending with a gigantic crocodile.
Last was the grand finale including all of the featured Disney characters. It was amazing seeing all the characters takeover the large icy stage.
Mickey and Minnie’s Magical Journey is full of engaging stories including music, adventure and laughter. All ages will be entertained by the skillful ice skating and magical effects and the fun costumes and innovative props are sure to keep the attention of kids. There’s never a dull moment in the show! You’ll be singing your favorite Disney songs and in amazement at the special effects of a shooting star, flying children and giant inflatable villains that’s apart of this magical journey.
