Disney on Ice at the O2

Disney on Ice at the O2

We were super lucky to be invited by O2 Priority to Disney on Ice today. It’s not honestly something I’ve thought about going to before. Josh is a very stereotypical boy. He likes fast cars, lego, super heroes and running around. However it seems Disney can grab the imagination of any child in the world, because he was hooked from start to finish. We took my sister in law and niece Grace. Josh and Grace were singing and dancing to Frozen, enthralled in the battle between Peter Pan and Hook and giggling at Mickey and Goofey as they led us from one story to another.

The show is in two halves. We caught the 10.30am and were sat in the hospitality box so the view was amazing. It had it’s only bar area and the most lovely staff member who really cared whether us and the kids had a good time. We could order snacks, food and drinks through her without needing to leave the room if we wished. We were also able to order food ahead of time so lunch was served during the interval (the menu is pretty usual with things like chicken and chips, and the vegetarian option for a bean burger).

If you are going to the O2 for a special occasion, I’d recommend looking into getting tickets for the hospitality box as it does give a lovely sparkle to the day, and if you are going with a large group gives you privacy and space for the kids to run around.

Though the arena was full, it really didn’t feel stressful. We travelled via Stratford and there are signs everywhere for the O2 as well as staff along the way directing. The only thing I would suggest is instead of going to the merchandise shops at the O2, we popped into the Disney shop at Westfield shopping centre only a few stops away where we’d parked. There was more choice and it felt like you got more for your money.

We really did have such a magical time. Apparently they change the Disney on Ice show each season, so we would be very tempted to buy tickets for the next one. I know the kids will be talking about this forever, and me and my sister in law both shed a tear watching my niece feel like she saw THE Elsa.

Let me now if you have any questions down below. Have you been? What did you think?
