Disney on Ice Princess Classics came to Denver and we saw it on opening night, thanks to Feld Inc. I had a contest on my blog earlier in the month and one lucky family was in attendance too.

Now…. onto the Show! We went to Opening Night and saw all the Princesses, their Princes, and Mickey and Minnie were there too! The girls had a blast! The show was at the Denver Coliseum which is a convenient venue to get to but make sure you plan to take back roads because the Brighton Blvd exit was backed up onto I-70 and I-25. There are plenty of back roads to use alternate roads. There are also several ways and short cuts to get to the parking lot so stay left once you eit on Brighton Blvd. And go straight for the free lot. There are also $5 lots and $10 lots nearby but parking at the Coliseum in the South/West Lot is free if you are okay with a long walk. It is a long walk to the front and will call is on the west side so plan accordingly. We got there just in time for the opening act even though we left our home (some 10 miles from the Coliseum) at 6pm. So, plan accordingly. I think like all events, you have to plan for parking, traffic and the time in line to get into the venue itself.
Once inside, I have to say the Coliseum is a great venue! Easy to find your section and your seats and the concessionaires outside are easily accessible but of course, restrooms are always backed up especially if you are trying to get your kids into the women’s restroom. Ladies, take your men with you – the lines are much shorter.
The first part starts with Aladdin and Jasmine and takes you on a magic carpet ride. You get snippets of all the Princess Classics including Sleeping Beauty, Mulan, Little Mermaid, Snow White, and of course, Beauty & the Beast. The first part ends with a beautiful ballroom “dance” of all the prince and princesses and then an appearance with Mickey and Minne. The kids are mesmerized and ready for act two in no time which is the entire Cinderella story from start to finish- evil stepsisters, fairy godmother and all.
It is a beautifully done part two that ends with the glass slipper fitting Cinderalla, and a royal “dance” of the Prince Charming and Cinderella. This leaves you walking out and driving home…happily ever after! Every Cinderella, Snow White, Prince and Princess in that Coliseum left happy. I think the parents did too. The show is longer than Mickey’s Magic Show and is almost 120 minutes from start to finish with the intermission. We left slightly early to beat the rush home (plus the kids were fading) so I cannot blog about the lines out the parking lot but there are two roads out of the main parking lot- go straight- that leads you onto Brighton Blvd for the quickest access to I-70. Of course, if the traffic is bad, try to re-route your GPS and take the back roads to I-25 and I-70 and enjoy the ride with the sleepy, happy kids. I looked back and my eldest was smiling and laughing whilst looking out her window. That made me smile too. My youngest is two and oldest four and they had a great time and it is fun for all ages. If you have princes and princesses, Disney on Ice-Princess Classics should not to be missed!
