Disney on Ice, Magical Ice Festival, Glasgow Hydro, 2015 review Pat Byrne

Disney on Ice

Disney on Ice

When I arrived at the Hydro with Ryan (aged 11), Caitlin(14) and their mum, Gail, and saw all the wee tots dressed in their Elsa outfits, I thought I had made a bloomer.  Maybe Disney on Ice was just for the four to sevens? However, Glasgow’s Hydro was soon to be packed with children of all ages – everyone of them in for a treat.

We were completely dazzled as we watched act after act depict familiar Disney movies –  with their recognisable characters such as: the Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast. The extravaganza moved along smoothly with the help of Mickey and Minnie Mouse and we all lapped up the fairytale atmosphere.  

You would be hard pushed to fault any aspect of this show – the skaters were graceful, skilled and athletic, the acting convincing and the sets impressive. 

Nor could you ask for a better venue than the Hydro, where the lighting and effects made every scene enchanting.

They were still singing on the train going home and later I think they would have been dreaming of Kristoff, the reindeer Sven and, of course, Elsa and Anna.

Disney on Ice was most definitely a great family night out. We’re still talking about it.
