Disney On Ice – Where are the best seats?
The very best seats for cast interaction (smiles, handshakes, etc) are in the front row. The next best seats are in the corners at the bottom of the U. This is where a number of special cast members will enter and exit the ice.
Tickets for these areas can be purchased through Ticketmaster. After the VIP seats, and the corners, the rows closest to the floor on the sides of the U and then finally the section at the bottom of the U.
SiliconValleyMom Note: If the arena uses risers for the section at the bottom of the U then be advised that this is not always the best section for viewing (unless you are in the first 1-3 rows). That is because there is not a great deal of elevation between the rows of seats so it is not always easy for young children to see over the heads of the adults in front of them.
Costumes Yes or No?
Definitely yes!!! It doesn’t have to be the latest or the fanciest but costumes definitely. If you don’t have a costume on hand, I suggest checking the sale sections at ShopDisney. If you are purchasing tickets which include a meet and greet then definitely costumes.
Souvenirs at Disney on Ice
Souvenirs start at about $10 and go up. The most popular seems to be snow cones in souvenir cups or cotton candy with a souvenir hat on top. Both items are between $10 – $15 depending upon the location. Light up toys are also popular. If you want to save money on souvenirs you can buy online and bring yours with you.
