Where are the Best Seats for Disney on Ice Dare to Dream?
The very best seats are in the VIP sections (front rows) on the left and right sides for the arena |_|. These are the closest seats to the ice (and the performers). The next best seats are the very corners of the |_| because this is used as an entrance for some of the performers. And lastly the front row of the bottom of the |_|. Click here to purchase tickets.
After these sections, then seating depends upon how tall (or not tall) your children are. The seats at the bottom section of the |_| are usually on very short risers that extend down to floor of the arena. Because there is not a lot of difference in the height between the rows, sometimes kids can’t see (as much as they’d like) because there is an adult sitting in front of them, or another kid standing in the seat. So if you can’t get a seat in the first 1-3 rows, then I would suggest sitting farther back.
There are no bad seats, and the performers do a great job of covering the entire iced area and facing all of the directions during the show.

What About Costumes at Disney On Ice Dare to Dream?
Yes, yes and yes. Costumes are OK for kids 13 and younger. My kids did not stick just with the costumes at the Disney store. One year, my daughter ‘graced’ everyone with the White Witch costume and another year, we found a beautiful formal gown at a used clothing sale ($15). Amazon.com has a beautiful selection for costumes for both girls and boys.
