DIsney on Ice presents Follow your Heart [review]

I have been so excited to blog about this! I have been to my fair share of Disney on Ice shows but this one was BY FAR my favorite, and do you want to know why ... it took my back to my childhood, which is something I love sharing with my kids. It was awesome singing along with the songs from my childhood and having my kids stare in awe of me knowing them! But, lets start from the beginning!

I want to give a big THANK YOU to Feld Entertainment for inviting me and my family to the pre-show! On top of feeding us, allowing us to mingle with fellow bloggers and giving us fun photo ops - we got to meet Mickey and Minnie themselves! I was a little nervous with Bear [he sometimes always is afraid of people in costumes] but he ran right up to them and posed for pictures!

Once we got to our seats, the kids kept asking what would be first. We played a fun guessing game of what we would see during this show. [HINT: if you read my post with the trivia questions; it tells you what you're going to see throughout the show!]
The theme of the show was "follow your heart" which really could ring true for MOST Disney stories. However; what made this so special for me is that they created a story using a new Disney movie [Inside Out] and all the old classic movies from my childhood [The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, Snow White, etc ...]. 
Of course - Mickey and the gang kicked things off and got all the kids hyped and ready for the show!

The cast of Inside Out went through all the different emotions by using a different [older] Disney story to relate to each one. THIS WAS MY FAVORITE!
Halfway through the show was a 20 minute intermission - which means, bathroom break when you have children! :) Once we got back to our seats - we knew that we hadn't seen the characters from Finding Dory or Frozen! My kids were especially waiting for those two! They hoped they'd see Hank the Octopus and let me tell you, he DID NOT disappoint! :)
They ended the show with Frozen, which I think was perfect. Most kids are still Frozen Obsessed so it's a perfectly good ending for them! It was a GREAT show! :)

If you missed the shows in Fairfax, you can still catch them in Baltimore, MD right now!
