It’s been 30+ years since I’ve experienced Disney on Ice. I can perfectly remember the moment; I was five years old, seated way way up the General Patronage seats, but still in awe and wonder of what I was able to see below. My favorite Disney characters prancing on ice. It made me want to take up ice skating lessons too! There were also snack vendors, from popcorn, hotdogs, cotton candy, and yes, the snow cone with a lightup musical mug.
I wasn’t able to buy the snow cone mug, because we couldn’t afford it at that time. But I’ve always been grateful for the experience.
Thirty years later, like a blessing from the universe, Nacho Kid and I were given VIP seats to Disney on Ice in Manila this December for 2023. Finally! My son would be able to experience the magic I did, with an even better view!

The ticket prices were surprisingly affordable, and I’m glad families of any budget can experience it. A General Admission was 200php (not bad right?) and the most expensive seats were 5000php.
Show runs from December 22 2023 to January 7 2024
We actually had four tickets. But after asking out so many friends and relatives, our invitation just got decline – either because they were sick, or it was just too far, or they read our message too late.
Disney on Ice Souvenier and Snacks
Lines were long, but quick moving so we didn’t mind. The price for the souvenirs are expensive, but you pay for the premium and the memory. I bought everything I wanted when I was a kid, I was healing my inner child. Finally. I can afford to buy that elusive snow cone mug (1100php), while Geof got cotton candy with a Mickey crown (350php), and pop corn in a Mickey tub (550php).
Disney on Ice Experience
Now for the performance to begin… there were “adventure guides” who helped hype up the crowd towards each performance. Each set is a different franchise to the next. First was Mary Poppins, then The Incredibles. Moana, Frozen, Toy Story, Aladin, Lion King, and a special number from the Disney Princesses.
The Aladin performance was different from what I recall. The story they used is the one from the live action movie and not the one with Robin Williams. There also wasnt any solo performance for The Little Mermaid, which I terribly missed because I love the soundtrack there.
It was pretty interactive, and they chose a few kids from the audience to participate in the show; like ride the tour bus, rub the genie lamp or play games. The whole show lasted roughly around 2 hours, but felt so short huhu!
If you’re asking me if it’s worth seeing, it’s a HUGE YES. Don’t miss the chance to give your kids an experience of a lifetime. Go grab tickets and see Disney on Ice in Manila this year. Happy Holidays! 🙂
