Review: Disney On Ice at Wembley OVO Arena

The Harrow Online team had the chance to experience Disney on Ice at OVO Wembley Arena last Thursday, and we were blown away by the performance.

To say we were impressed would be putting it mildly. This is one of those shows that you really shouldn’t miss, and it’s hard to imagine what it’s like until you’re actually in the arena.

“The Little Mermaid” and “Frozen” got a lot of stage time, which was cool, and they also brought in bits from “Moana” and “Aladdin” to mix things up along with lots of other famous productions.

Mickey and Minnie hosted, and as usual, they were the biggest hit with the live crowd.

The place was lively, with kids and adults getting into the vibe, clapping and singing along to some classic Disney tracks. The atmosphere was buzzing, and seeing loads of kids decked out as their favourite Disney characters added to the fun.

The only downside was the steep prices for snacks like popcorn which started at a whopping £12. Other than that, the show was solid. It wasn’t just skating; they had a ton of props, including the Cinderella carriage, which added a nice touch. The whole thing lasted about 2 hours, which felt just right.

If you have young kids or you’re simply a fan of Disney, this show is a must-see. The amount of work poured into the production is evident, creating a magical atmosphere that almost transports you into the films themselves, especially as the iconic songs play in sync with the skating performances.

Behind the scenes, there’s a massive effort with choreographers, designers, and a whole team who create and transport over 180 props and countless costumes.

It takes them about 10 hours to set up in each new city, which is pretty impressive.

Overall, Disney on Ice delivered a good time.
