The joy of Worlds of Enchantment which is the latest tour from Disney on Ice, is that it takes four incredible Disney films and explores them in depth. The popular stories are performed by highly skilled ice skaters, (some of whom have exceedingly large costumes to contend with) all of whom bring Disney magic to life, beautifully.
Toy Story 3 opens the show where an abridged version of the film unfolded before our eyes. Spectacular moves were displayed by Buzz Lightyear and Woody and a cornucopia of impressive costumes were featured. It can’t have been an easy feat to skate as Ham the piggy bank, Lotso Huggin’ Bear and Slinky Dog – an amazing sight to behold. The pair work from Barbie and Ken was a highlight and it made a change to see new characters on the ice.
The Little Mermaid, followed with Sebastian taking us on the journey under the sea. Popular songs from the film moved it along as the talented company provided the effects of the setting and Ariel’s desire to live above the sea was explored. The piece de resistance was undoubtedly, Ursula, scarily life-like, the villain dominated the ice in her plight to bring about Ariel’s downfall.
In act two we are transported to Radiator Springs courtesy of Mater and co. and Arundel with Anna, Elsa and Olaf. Resplendent on the ice, the sisters and their snowman friend provide the ultimate finale.
The sets and backdrops used throughout the show are magnificent and truly are reminiscent of all of the Disney animations represented. The transitions were fluid and the scenery appears to glide as smoothly and effortlessly as the dancer themselves.
Compered by Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy, Worlds of Enchantment is fun for all the family and definitely pitched at all age groups. If you choose to go and join the gang, you’re in for a treat! Tickets can be booked here: http://www.disney.co.uk/disney-on-ice/worlds-of-enchantment/
