Disney on Ice: Mickey and Minnie's Magical Journey Review

Mickey and Minnie's Magical Journey is currently touring across the country. They are currently in Salt Lake City at the Energy Solutions Arena. We attended opening night this past Thursday.

Both of my kids love Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. It is probably their favorite show. When I told my daughter we were going to see Mickey, she was so excited she couldn't sleep. The night before she kept getting out of bed and telling me it was time to put her Minnie costume on.

Finally, the big day arrived and she was able to get all dressed in her Minnie dress and ears. We got to the arena and she got a Mickey Mouse plush (that she has carried around ever since). That really got her excited. We took our seats, the lights went down and Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Daisy came skating out. She literally squealed with delight and clapped for minutes. She was a bit concerned with Goofy's whereabouts, but he eventually joined the show. Mickey and the gang proceed to go on a vacation through the lands of The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, Lilo and Stitch and Peter Pan.

Unfortunately, my little one didn't know any of the shows except for Peter Pan so she was really upset when the other characters took the ice. I thought the show was great. I loved watching the skaters acting out the scenes to go along with some of the biggest songs from the movies. I've only seen part of Lilo and Stitch but I loved that part of the show. They told the story well. The skater that plays the part of Lilo does a great job.

The Little Mermaid was the most visually exciting part of the show. They had all of the sea creatures in bright, sparkly costumes out on stage at the same time. There were seahorses, starfish, jelly fish and of course, mermaids. They even had Ursula on the ice.

Peter Pan was definitely our favorite part of the show. Sissy was hooked the moment that Wendy, Michael and John took flight. She was especially excited to see Tinkerbell skate onto the ice. As an added bonus she thought she was watching Tinkerbell and Cinderella (Wendy) skate together. They flew across the arena to Neverland where they met up with the lost boys and Captain Hook. A very large crocodile also makes an appearance. There were even a few fireworks during this part.

They only part that was a little slow was the Lion King. It wasn't because it wasn't good, but because there were no bright sparkly costumes and no theatrical effects. It was just skating and usually just a couple of characters. It was still good, just slower.

My family really enjoyed the whole show. We would definitely attend another Disney on Ice performance. Next time, I would probably do my homework and make sure the little ones knew all of the story lines and characters so they would be able to follow along better. (My kids are quite young.) That means Disney needs to release The Lion King again so that I can show it to them!

If Mickey and Minnie's Magical Journey stops near you, I would recommend taking your kids. There are still tickets available for Saturday and Sunday in SLC. Use coupon code VALUE and you can purchase tickets for as little as $10.
