5 reasons why we're excited for Disney on Ice Passport to Adventure

Frozen's Olaf is just one of many Disney characters gracing the ice at Passport to Adventure

Stunning show features some of the best known characters from over 100 years of Disney, with tickets on sale now

Disney on Ice is to travel across the UK later this year, captivating the whole family. Ahead of the shows, which come to Glasgow, Newcastle, Manchester, Birmingham, Sheffield and London, we take a look at why we're excited.

The songs
If there's one thing you can guarantee from Disney on Ice: Passport to Adventure it is memorable songs. From Frozen's uplifting 'Let It Go ' to Toy Story's ode to friendship 'You Got a Friend in Me'. and from the celebratory Lion King anthem 'Hakuna Matata' to the joyous 'Under The Sea' from The Little Mermaid, there's no shortage of singalongs. Remember to do your best vocal exercises in preparation for belting them out.

The choreography
Get ready for some seriously impressive moving. It's hard enough ice skating in the first place, but how about ice skating while dressed as a Warthog? Or as a snowman? Or as a tropical fish? No matter, watch the cast of Disney on Ice fly glide gracefully on two (or even four) skates, effortlessly dancing their way from one side of the arena to the other.

The characters
There's the beautiful princesses Cinderella, Snow White, Aurora and Ariel, iconic legends like Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck and unforgettable supporting characters like The Lion King's Rafiki, Peter Pan's Tick Tock and Beauty and the Beast's Lumiere. All things considered, there are way too many special characters to cram into one two-hour show, but a cast of over 50 will provide an all singing, all dancing performance of the highest calibre. You won't be disappointed.

The look on the kids' faces
The show is called Passport to Adventure and rarely has there been a more appropriate name for a performance. Using expertly crafted sets, the cast will transport their audience to worlds beyond their wildest imagination. Kids will stare in beady eyed wonder as their favourite characters from over 100 years of entertainment swoop onto the ice, bringing the widest smiles to their faces. The only problem? They won't stop talking about it; and they'll want to go back time and time again.

You might get a meet and greet
From time to time, Disney on Ice offer the chance to meet and greet the characters from the show. If you're heading along to a show, make sure you keep your eyes peeled for competitions offering opportunities to say hello or get a picture with your favourites from the show. Remember to check Disney on Ice's official Facebook and Twitter feeds, just in case.
