Disclosure: My family has been gifted tickets to see the Disney on Ice Dream Big show. However, all thoughts, opinions, and words are my own.

You came here looking for the best Disney on Ice tips (and maybe even free tickets). Before I get into that, let me tell you that I am so excited to be attending our first Disney on Ice Dream Big show. It has been years since I attended a Disney on Ice show, and my two youngest sons have never seen one. Whether you are planning on attending Disney on Ice in Youngstown at the Covelli Centre or in some other location, the following tips will prove helpful for you and your family.

Make sure to follow our page to keep up on the latest happens from A Mother’s Random Thoughts! Now on to the really important items – Disney on Ice shows, tickets, and more!

While the show is indoors, it is performed on an ice rink. This means that it will be cooler than other indoor shows. Make sure to wear jackets or sweaters. I will also be sporting my gloves because I tend to be colder than other people.

Your child may want to dress as their favorite character, and that is permissible for children. However, costumes worn by guests 14 years of age or older are not permitted.

But don’t despair if you are an adult. There are still options for you too! If you have never heard of Disney bounding, it may be something you want to try. While Disney bounding is not really wearing costumes, it does portray your favorite characters while wearing street clothes. Our family will be wearing clothes that capture the essence of our favorite characters from either Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast or Mickey and Minnie and gang.

This is a Disney production – of course, there will be souvenirs to purchase. And you know that your little ones will want to buy them all. Some people report that they prepurchase souvenirs online, however, please contact the venue you are visiting before doing this as each venue has its own rules regarding what you can bring into the arena. Most arena rules prohibit outside food and beverages. Read the rules before you go!

While your child may want all the souvenirs, this is an excellent time to note what they really are attracted to. Consider buying additional items to put away for Christmas, Easter baskets or birthdays.
