A dream is a wish your heart makes…after watching the first ever Disney On Ice in Dubai last year with the kids, I dreamed of watching it again when they announced shows this year. And what’s more, there’s Frozen! My dream came true when I was again invited to the private screening for media, with the kids!
It was a hot and very humid day in Dubai last Tuesday but inside the World Trade Center Arena, it was cold…there was ice!
This year’s show is titled, Disney On Ice Princesses and Heroes. The ice-skating musical will bring Disney’s beloved characters to life. Queen Elsa, Princess Anna and snowman Olaf from the smash hit Frozen comprised the biggest chunk of the show, while eight Disney princesses, including Snow White, Belle, Jasmine and Aurora, take audiences back a few years. Ariel and her Prince was there, to the delight of my little boy. Ariel is his favorite Disney princess.

The show stretches to an hour long before a break of 15 minutes and then..Frozen! Disney’s Frozen makes its UAE on-ice debut in Disney On Ice presents Princesses and Heroes to the delight of the fans!
Disney knows no age, really. When Elsa sang the hit soundtrack Let it Go, of course everyone in the arena were singing, including moms and dads!
The show started yesterday and until the new show time slot added on Sunday, June 14th, at 3.30pm. Take your kids! It’s a fun family show you will never forget. Limited tickets still available for weekend shows from Virgin Megastores and online at www.virginmegastore.ae.
* You can see short videos I took of the show on my Instagram account. Follow me there! Compared to the last year’s media preview, I was seated a bit far from the stage and do not own a mighty zoom lens, so my apologies for the distant photos.
