Mickey and his friends brought a wonderful and magical event to Nassau Coliseum

Disney On Ice:
Mickey & Minnie’s Magical Journey features Mickey, Minnie, Donald,
Daisy and Goofy sharing some of their magical journeys through various Disney
movies. The performance includes The Lion King, The Little Mermaid,
Lilo & Stitch and Peter Pan. Each “Act” detailed the movie in a
shortened version. This fun-filled ice production allows the whole
family to be transported to the Pride Lands with Simba and Nala, see
what trouble Ariel gets into under the sea, visit the islands to say
“Aloha” to Lilo & Stitch and watch Peter Pan and Tinkerbell in their
latest adventure in Neverland.

The show opened to Mickey, Minnie,
Donald, Daisy and Goofy all dressed in cute safari outfits, ready to go
on their safari adventure with the The Lion King cast. The stage was
set up with a top stage with a staircase that leads to the main stage,
the ice. The Lion King’s performance includes Rafiki’s wise and
insightful narrations paired with musical numbers to classics such as “I
Just Can’t Wait to Be King” and “Hakuna Matata.” Along with a well
skated performance of “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” by Simba and Nala.

Mickey
and friends skate back on stage and want to sing and dance. Mickey
tells them he knows the perfect song they can sing and dance to,
“Fathoms Below” from The Little Mermaid. This led you perfectly into
your next adventure. First on the ice is none other than the singing and
dancing crab named Sebastian to sing and dance to his hit “Under the
Sea”. They even recreated one the most important scenes of the movie,
Ursula’s deal to turn Ariel into a human for three days. This scene was
recreated perfectly. Ursula and her green eel minions take to the ice to
take Ariel’s voice and transform her into a mute human. Lastly Prince
Eric and Ariel deliver a jaw-dropping and breathtaking performance while
Sebastian and sea creatures sing “Kiss the Girl.”

Mickey and
friends come back and want to hula dance, it’s time for Lilo and
Stitch’s section of the show. Their section is full of toe-tapping, fun
renditions of Elvis songs and a story about the importance of family or
“ohana” in hawaiian. Lilo and Stitch get down dancing to songs like
“Devil in Disguise” and “Burning Love.”

Mickey and friends are now
ready for a high-flying adventure in Neverland with Peter Pan. This
section is complete with flying, many props and swordplay. Peter Pan had
a cool skating number with his shadow, the audience helped bring life
back into Tinkerbell and Captain Hook and the pirates sing “A Pirate’s
Life” in a huge pirate ship. One of highlights would be the technical
sword fight number between Captain Hook and Peter Pan ending with a
gigantic crocodile.

Last was the grand finale including all of the
featured Disney characters. It was amazing seeing all the characters
takeover the large icy stage.

Mickey and Minnie’s Magical Journey
is full of engaging stories including music, adventure and laughter. All
ages will be entertained by the skillful ice skating
and magical effects and the fun costumes and innovative props are sure
to keep the attention of kids. There’s never a dull moment in the show!
You’ll be singing your favorite Disney songs and in amazement at the
special effects of a shooting star, flying children and giant inflatable
villains that’s apart of this magical journey.
