GIVEAWAY: Disney On Ice 2019 – Mickey and Friends


Disney on Ice has released its 2019 tour dates!

My girls and I went to last year’s show and we had such a fun time! The show was just amazing — the sets, the skating, the music! What I love about these events is how the adults enjoy the show just as much as the kids. This year’s show centres on Mickey Mouse and friends, plus features Moana for the first time.

Tom Williams, Disney Dad and Australian media personality has been confirmed as Disney On Ice Ambassador for 2019 – becoming the first father to take on the role in Australia.

“I’m thrilled to be the ambassador for the 2019 Disney On Ice tour. My wife Rachel and I will be able to share our childhood Disney memories with our girls, Storm and Sloane” says Tom.

“I have such vivid memories of these stories from my own childhood and even now as a dad! Disney stories have the unique ability to remain magical for people of all ages and introduce us to characters that teach us important values. I personally identify with Goofy because I love making people laugh.”

    My daughter has always LOVED Frozen, so we took them two years ago to see DOI when Frozen had first been added. I think that is her fave Disney moment, I think mine is secretly watching her sing and act along everytime she put it on.
    She still loves Frozen but moved onto Moana.

    When my daughter was 3 we went to meet the princesses as a surprise. She wasn’t really sure what was happening but when she turned the corner and saw Princess Aurora….she couldn’t help but squeal and ran towards her “princess aurora, princess aurora”. The pure delight on her face will be one I will never forget.

    My daughter just turned 2.5. She used to love Moana but after playing frozen she was hooked and watched it everyday. She started daycare at 2 and had terrible separation anxiety and cried so much when I left. One day she wanted to wear her Elsa dress to daycare and she didn’t cry at all and had the best day. She loved being referred to as Elsa and saying Elsa can do anything. It was like the dress transformed her into Elsa.

    One of my daughters favourite Disney memories is Mulan because it shows that girls can do anything they put their mind too. That women can be independent of a man and be just as successful in life.

    My daughter just turned 3yo yesterday and we had a Frozen themed small celebration for her at home. She’s been trying to sing And dance along Let it go for weeks. She loves Elsa because her friend at Sunday school is a big fan, wearing Elsa dress and singing the song with her! She’s also got excited whenever she sees anything with Minnie Mouse and Moana!
    My other child- 7yo boy loves buzz light year & woody from toy story, he can’t wait to see toy story 4, too! He loves them because they have good friendships and buzz has cool gear.

    Frozen was the biggest Disney hit with our 3 munchkins, 1 girl and 2 boys. Before they started school they would spend their day dressing up and singing all the hit songs. We still enjoy watching all the short movies we would take. One movie in particular was of my 3 year boy singing a solo of ‘Let it Go’. Disney movies are the best!!

    My girls (12 and 7 years) loved the Tangled, Frozen and Moana movies. My 7 year old has dressed up as Elsa and Moana for book week at school over the years too. I think the songs are brilliant and the storylines are fantastic. They loved singing along to Let it Go from Frozen!

    My 2 y/o son loves The Cars movie. He has a little story about Mater and he absolutely loves that book. He has gotten us to read that story every night before bed. The book is only made of paper and he loves it. Even if it gets ripped and he’s pulled it away from his baby sister the book has been mended with a ton of sticky tape and she still loves it. He knows the story forwards and backwards and it’s helping him to recognise letters and words too. It’s amazing to see my baby boy loving books and wanting to “read”.

    I will always treasure the memory of hiring a small catamaran on holiday, only to find our two daughters were absolutely terrified to be aboard… Until we reminded them of Moana. Within 10 minutes they were helping us to steer. By the end we were all laughing, wind in our hair and sea spray in our faces and the littlest (3) singing “How Far I’ll Go”.

    We saved for 2 years to take our 4 children to Disneyland at the end of last year. My Miss 4 had talked for weeks about seeing Minnie Mouse. Well you can imagine what actually happened when we saw her …… absolute frozen silence! She snuggled into me and wouldn’t even give poor Minnie a smile. Thankfully we have lots of photos and can look and them and remind her of how excited she was (and it’s ok to be a little shy).

    Our eldest daughter was a huge Mickey and Minnie Clubhouse fan as a toddler. Her imaginary friend was named, Goofy and all day everyday we’d hear her invite ‘Goof’ to sit at the table and into the car. We always had a chuckle when she exclaimed, ‘Oh Goof’, when he had obviously done something particularly goofy. At nearly 10 now she smiles knowlingly whenever we remind her of her past friend. It’s a lovely Disney related memory for us.

    My eldest daughter Eloise absolutely loves the scene from The Lion King when Rafiki raises Simba, the cub, up for all the animals to see and honor him . We have often had to reenact this scene, many times, during play. Also most visitors have been asked to participate, as other animals, and cheer when Simba is raised!

    An interview with my 6 year old daughter, Zoe :
    Me: What is your favourite Disney song:
    Z: Umm…I like ‘Let it Go’. I like Moana songs too, oh and the ‘King Lion’ songs (her way of saying it!) and I really really like Ariel, and the bit where Ariel sings in the cave.
    Me: Why do you like those songs?
    Z: I like dancing to them, and singing to them!
    Me: What is the best thing you remember about your favourite songs?
    Z: Singing them!
    Me: Where did we sing them?
    Z: In the car on the way to school!
    Me: What did you like about singing on your way to school?
    Z: That it was fun!

    We lived in Switzerland for about 2 years and Disney movies were a way for our children to experience a part of our own childhood. Our 3 year old daughter fell in love with Frozen and particularly, Elsa. To her delight, Frozen was a part of the children movies available on the flights back to Australia when we moved home last year. As the flights were not full, we had a few rows available. She changed seats throughout the flights and watched Frozen. It was great that she was entertained for the entire transit! To see Disney on Ice would be the best experience to share with my kids.

    Miss 5 favourite is has to be Elsa.

    She loves it for the simple joy it brings – but also as it’s become a bit of an anthem for our little family of 3.

    We use frozen heaps to talk about strength of character. Our family unfortunately was a victim of family violence and often master 7 emulates domineering behaviours.

    Frozen has lots of messages to be taken to understand the world she lives in. Fixerupper has proved me the perfect words:

    “People make bad choices if they’re mad or scared or stressed
    But throw a little love their way, and you’ll bring out their best”

    To help me explain to her the dynamics between mum & dad and why she should show him all the love in the world despite this.

Whilst his favourite memory wasn’t mummy selling all of his toys as he outgrew them, his favourite memory now is reminiscing over the 3 Toy Story movies in preparation for the 4th one coming out soon. He is also saving to buy a new toy to mark the occasion! You are never too old to enjoy the spirit of Disney!

Our most favourite disney experience however came as a most wonderful surprise when my sister returned after working at disney world florida for 18 months. She had gone to great lengths to get special autographed pictures of my childrens favourite cast characters and personalised mickey ears. WE may not be able to visit the usa but she certainly brought the disney magic to us.

    As a mum of all boys, last year I had to beg my 11 & 12 year old to come with me to Disney on Ice. My 12 Yr olds face was just one of bewilderment the whole time and its definitely his favourite Disney memory and its also become one of our family’s happiest memories. Watching them get so involved in the show and wanting to go back and watch all of the movies from scenes they didn’t recognise afterwards was a great way to fill in the holidays. This year we have a 7 month old who we’d love to take along. Never to young or to old to enjoy Disney on Ice.
