Where are the Best Seats for Disney on Ice Presents Passport to Adventure?
First there are no bad seats for the event, but that being said, there are always preferences and maybe different needs depending upon your child. First the show layout. Disney on Ice uses a |_| shaped performing area where the open end is the entrance for the performers and the audience seating around the three other sides.
- Best seats in the House $$$
The VIP seats which usually include a character meet and greet, or at least close enough for the performers to say ‘Hi’ and wave.
- Front Row at the Corners $$$
During the Disney on Ice performance there will be several times when performers need to enter the stage from a different area or sit during the performance. For that purpose there is a platform at the corners of the |_| so anyone setting near by gets an extra wave or smile.
- Front Row Seats $$$
You can rarely go wrong buying Front Row Seats.
- Opposite the Stage/Performers Entrance $$
This is the lower level at the bottom of the |_| in the first section of permanent seats. This is a personal preference for me, but several times that I have sat in the riser section my view has been blocked by people that let their children stand or sit in their lap so that the younger children could see better. The riser section while closer to the ice does not have the height difference between the rows so it is harder to see over heads of the people in front of you. If you have young children, I also suggest saving money on the seats and spend it on the souvenirs and costumes.
- Side Sections of the |_| $$-$
The most popular seating sections the sides of the |_| in the middle of the venue.
