My 7 tips for Disney On Ice- GrandWest

- from our family to yours! #SmoothSailing


Yeah! We went to see Disney on Ice this Thursday- and what an experience it was! My four year old loved it to bits, especially scenes from Under the Sea and , yes- you guessed it , Frozen.


As you have probably read all the write-ups on the show by now, I decided to give you some pointers based on our experience:


  1. If you have not done so yet, buy your tickets from Computicket in advance - they sell out quickly.

  2. Dress warm, though you do not necessarily need to take your kids a blanket, warm shoes, gloves and a hoodie will do the trick.

  3. Take some cash- the Disney stands do accept cards, but the soda and water bars (situated between the Grand Arena Doors/Entrances) accept cash only.

  4. Consider using the Grand Arena Entrance instead of the main entrance- there were no queues on that side.

  5. Stay for something to eat afterwards- no, this is not an upselling trick- but after a two-hour show the kids are likely to be tired from all the excitement and in order to avoid the queues and traffic- consider sitting down for a while. GrandWest has a wide selection of family friendly restaurants. Disney on Ice is an extremely popular show, with good reason, so you can expect a lot of foot traffic and delays in the parking area.

  6. Arrive early, and book that dinner in advance:)

  7. Pay your parking at the parking station closest to where your vehicle is parked instead of the main entrance.


My four year old loved it, but my 2-year-old was quite scared of all the Toy Story characters- the toilets at entrance six did not have a baby changing station, so these are things to consider if you think about taking your child who is still on nappies. No “babes in arms” are allowed. To see the excitement on your child's' face is priceless and it is a fantastic experience to share with your little one. So consider turning that camera away from the stage and toward their little faces, then capture these sweet expressions and their amazement to cherish for a lifetime!

(If you are planning your budget- Candyfloss and slush puppy souvenirs for +- R110- R140, there are loads of clothes and unique souvenirs on sale at the entrances (card or cash), sodas and water are +- R15 cash only at the arena bar)
