We are big Disney fans in our house, I don’t think there is a Disney film that I haven’t loved. The girls are following in our footsteps and Alice’s first love was Sofia the First. It was the first fancy dress costume she owned and she would watch it all day if I let her (which I didn’t!).
She was slower than her friends to fall in love with Frozen, but when it came that was the start of her love for all the Disney princesses. The girls had their first joint birthday party when Alice was three and Holly turned one and it was a Princess and Pirate party.
Alice went as Sofia the First and I found this gorgeous Anna outfit for baby Holly…how cute is this…
When I first heard about Disney On Ice I knew that it would be something that Alice would love and Holly as she got older. The first time we went Alice was three years old and as Holly was only one, she was a bit young, so we went with my sister in law and niece. Alice was mesmerised from the minute it started and it had one of her favourites, Aerial from The Little Mermaid.
At Christmas we were lucky enough to be asked along to see Disney on Ice Frozen, with Holly a bit older we took both the girls and they both absolutely loved it. Holly sat so well through it all, dancing and pointing at Anna and Elsa. It was a brilliant family day out.
Disney On Ice is back this year with their new show celebrating 100 years of magic and it looks like its going to be even bigger and better if thats possible.
They’ve recently launched a Disney On Ice music video, called the Mouse Bounce, which is part of their Fit To Dance pre show. Fit To Dance is a programme that Disney On Ice have set up to get kids creative and active through storytelling and dance.
The Mouse Bounce video is great fun and you can see some celebrities, like Peter Andre do The Mouse Bounce! Check it out…
Disney On Ice asked the girls and I to try The Mouse Bounce for ourselves. Well Alice loved this idea and had to get into character! She choose to be Anna, she does make a good Anna and Holly went for Elsa. Holly was having a bit of a clingon day, as you will see in the video. But Alice does a great job for all of us…
It was lots of fun and Alice has asked to do The Mouse Bounce every day since!
If you fancy seeing the new Disney On Ice Celebrating 100 Years of Magic, it is touring all over the country and you can find out all the venues and dates here.
