REVIEW: Disney on Ice Presents Road Trip Adventures Now Playing The Chicagoland Area Through February 9, 2020

Disney On Ice presents Road Trip Adventures Takes Families on a Fun-Fueled Excursion to Iconic Disney Destinations

Guest Review:
by Kimberly Robb Baker 

Disney on Ice’s Road Trip Adventures hits all the right notes.

Firstly, you can’t go wrong with Disney characters singing, er lip syncing—but don’t tell the kids, and frolicking on the ice doing fancy tricks while covered in Swarovski crystals (costumers hand-applied 250,000 of the sparkly little guys this time around).

Grownups can be excused for anticipating that this production may be a bit like the last with, perhaps a reshuffling of the characters and songs. Grownups would be wrong.

From writing to choreography, special affects and, of course, sparkly and innovative costumes, this road-trip themed extravaganza brings the goods and will keep the whole family engaged.

The sheer athleticism of the cast is on full display right from the opening number where chimney sweeps perform “flags” on the light poles and ride trick bikes on the ice while Mary Poppins and Jack do a carefree ice dance.

Throughout, there are circus artists adding dimension to the experience. The skaters themselves often leave the ice, swinging and spinning through the air on creatively designed set pieces.

The puppets in the Lion King number were gorgeous, and the love ballad dance between Simba and Nala was graceful, athletic and emotive—a nice balance to the sheer excitement of most of the other numbers.

Kids of all ages could be heard joining in on favorites, especially to Elsa’s Let it Go and Moana’s How Far I’ll Go.

Expect a family singalong on the way home!
