Disney On Ice, Dare To Dream

Years ago, friends offered us tickets to Disney On Ice. Emma was just a few months old and we didn’t think she’d last through the opening. Lately, we’ve seen several commercials for Disney On Ice. Dare to Dream has hit the Bay Area and she really wanted to go.
Disney On Ice, Dare to Dream, is in the Bay Area at both Oracle Arena in Oakland and HP Pavilion in San Jose, now through March 3rd. Emma and I were invited for a special preview event. So we finally got to go and she couldn’t have been more excited.


Dare to Dream brings together the Disney characters with some of our favorite princesses. Rapunzel, Tiana, and Cinderella revisited some of their best moments from Tangled, The Princess and the Frog, and Cinderella. These performances are from world class skaters, we really couldn’t wait. Even Maximus was on skates!

One of our favorite moments of the night was a surprise for Emma. Not only did she get to go with her friend Barrett from Motherhood + Me, but we also got a special meet-and-greet with Tiana! It was such a huge treat. Tiana answered a gazillion questions, and the girls were in heaven.

The show was great. Emma can’t stop talking about it. If you have the chance, go! It doesn’t come around nearly enough. We’re so glad we got to take advantage of the opportunity.

Disney On Ice provided tickets for our family to see Dare to Dream. All thoughts and reviews are my own.
