So you guys didn't care for it too much, huh? What about kids, were there kids there? The usually enjoy it... Anyway, I was wondering what you thought about it because I'm in it. What could be better??
I saw the Incredibles...I'm not sure if is the same. My family absolutely loved it. I on the other hand, I misunderstood the title or theme and was waiting for the "Incredibles" to reenact the movie. It wasn't till during intermission I asked my wife what kind of show it was. I then understood the Incredibles were going to Disneyland for a vacation. I found it interesting that in some ways, it was just a big advertisement for Disneyland. Marketing or not, it was a great performance and I would recommend it.
I saw this show in November of 2005 when it was still called "Disney/Pixar present the Incredibles in a Magic Kingdom Adventure on Ice."
Try saying that three times real fast!
I had the best time. The show was exactly what I hoped it would be: a total cheese fest...ON ICE!
It was really cool to see an ice show built around one of the parks and production numbers about the attractions. However, you can't go to these types of shows expecting riveting entertainment. They're pretty much geared to a very young audience.
The kids around me enjoyed it, the parents, not so much, and me and my friend were just enjoying laughing at the whole unintentional comic mess of it.
My wife and I went last week and both of us came away unimpressed. The first half was pretty good, but after intermission it seemed as if they were just wasting time. At times it got so cheesy I thought I was watching a parody of an ice show. I also found it confusing that some things were given generic names instead of their proper Disney names, such as the Runaway mine car ride instead of Thunder Mountain. But the worst part had to be the songs they were playing for each of the Incredible family as they changed into their superhero outfits. Wow, I could have sworn someone was just making it up as the show was going on. Overall, I would give it a below average grade, at least for adults. The kids, on the other hand, seemed to be enjoying the show.

Well, if you go to a Disney On Ice show...come on, you gotta realize that it is DISNEY ON ICE. It's not Broadway or anything like that and I would suggest not going in expecting a production targeted mainly at adult audiences or you'll be completely disappointed. Of course it is targeted at a young audience... it's Disney. And if you look, the show is called "A Disneyland Adventure featuring the Incredibles" (yes, it used to be called "The Incredibles in a Magic Kingdom Adventure")... but it was never called "The Incredibles on Ice." If you were expecting the movie-brought-to-ice, what in the world does Disneyland have to do with it? It is exactly what it sounds like. It is an original script -- no one claimed otherwise (trust me, I know!). Anyway, it is just so interesting hearing what all people have to say about this particular show (although someone commented on Toy Story 2... I haven't seen it, but I hear it was great).
It definitely wasn't the best Disney On Ice production I've seen, but my 5 year old cousin loved it. Each kid was giving a rubber bracelet with two buttons and a light on it (Similar to Syndrome's remote in the movie only read with The Incredibles on it).
At the end of the show, the bracelets all activated and the children were instructed to push certain buttons to do certain things and interact with the show. This happened about 2 or 3 times towards the later part of the show, and the kids really ate it up
The kids (especially young boys) will love it, for us Disneyland buffs, only the Haunted Mansion segment is memorable.
