DISNEY ON ICE: Magical Ice Festival 2016

"Mummy, can you take me to the Frozen show?"

These days, even 3-year olds are more up-to-date than I am.

If you are like me and haven't already heard, Disney On Ice will be presenting Magical Ice Festival during the March holidays!

Kate has been belting out "Let it go" with her 4-year old cousin often enough, to her older siblings' lament, "Isn't the Frozen fever over?"

To which I replied, "Girls, there will always be 3-year olds. Let Kate have her fair share of it, ok?"

When I announced that I had been sponsored VIP tickets to Magical Ice Festival 2016, they changed their tune and all wanted in on it!

With beautifully choreographed figure-skating moves, elaborate sets and familiar tunes, who could resist?

They started reminiscing about the Disney on Ice shows I had brought them to when they were younger, and how over the years, they 'came of age' and had to save up their ang pow money to purchase those tickets themselves.

Their all-time favourite was the High School Musical Ice Tour 8-years ago, and we haven't gone to any others since then. Now that we have Kate, the teens have an opportunity to re-live their childhood memories of their favourite Disney characters!

This year's theme, Magical Ice Festival, takes you on a sensational journey with your most loved Disney characters on ice. Experience a medley of Disney movies from The Little Mermaid to Beauty and the Beast, with special appearances from characters of the Academy Award winning and Number One Animated Feature film of all time - Disney's Frozen!

With an extraordinary line-up of hit songs, memorable scenes and never-before-seen characters to look forward to, here are 10 magical moments behind Disney On Ice to get you all geared up for the show.

1.     Disney On Ice was founded in 1981 and has since travelled to over 75 countries and 6 continents
2.     The average size of the ice skating surface is 140ft [42m] x 70ft [21m]
3.     There are approximately 180 costumes presented at one Disney On Ice show
4.     And more than 100 people work on these costumes
5.     It takes 18 trucks to transport all production equipment for set-up
6.     And it takes between 12-15 hours to set up one Disney On Ice show
7.     But just about 4 hours to tear down the entire production
8.     Over 80 different colours of paint are used on the 183 props for this production
9.     The youngest performer on this year’s show is 19-years-old and the oldest is 44-years-old
10.   Each performer may change up to 8 costumes in one show

Kate can't wait to be enchanted by her first Disney On Ice extravaganza. She keeps looking at the calendar and counting down the days.

To be honest, I'm also looking forward to it!
