What to do with the kids when you've seen Frozen 10,000 times.

“Do you wanna…”

If you immediately finish this sentence in your head with “…build a snowmaaaan?”, then you’ve seen Frozen a few times. Or a few hundred. Or a few thousand. And it doesn’t stop there. You see a carrot and think of a snowman. You see a girl with braided hair and wonder if she’s an ice queen, too. Your idea of romance is not saying “I love you”. It’s saying, “Some people are worth melting for…”.

It’s not a bad thing. It’s just part of your life now. Make the kids’ lunches, empty the dishwasher, hum ‘Do You Wanna Build A Snowman?’, check your email. Frozen isn’t just a movie anymore. It’s life. If this sounds familiar to you, then we have the solution. The ultimate, most frosty fantastic Frozen experience you could possibly imagine.

You know when you've got a song stuck in your head for ages, and then when you finally hear the song come on the radio, it fills you with a sense of relief? Because now you're listening to it, you can stop humming it over and over. Now imagine that song is ‘Let It Go.’ And imagine you are watching it live, with hundreds of excited little kids around, as Elsa twirls across an ice arena on skates, leaping through the air and singing the world's catchiest song.

For the first time ever, Disney On Ice is bringing the Magical Ice Festival to Australia. Audiences will see the best moments of Frozen played out as Anna, Elsa and Olaf do triple flying axel flips on one skate (okay, I don't even know if that's a move. But it will be amazing. Trust me). There will be singing. And dancing. And lots and lots of ice.

If you've never seen a child watch a Disney On Ice show, you haven't lived. It's the same reaction as when they watched Frozen for the first time, to the power of ten. Multiplied by infinity. With a little extra magic sprinkled on top.

The kids will get such a big dose of Frozen, they'll get a brain freeze. In fact, they might even leave the DVD of Frozen in its case for a whole week. And the show won't just be good for kids. Anna and Elsa are practically family members by now. We've been living and breathing their journey since the movie came out in 2013. They are as familiar as our own children. We owe it to them to see them performing live for the first time ever. But not just live. It’s on ICE, guys. If ever characters were meant to be on ice, it's the characters of Frozen. Let's be honest. We all know Elsa the Ice Queen will dominate the skates. She's Elsa. She probably made the ice.

Some of Elsa’s friends from other Disney kingdoms will also be there. Rumour has it that Sebastian and Ariel from The Little Mermaid are looking to trade their fins for skates, and the lovebirds Rapunzel and Flynn from Tangled, as well as Belle and the Beast from Beauty and the Beast are coming to join the fun too.

Do yourself a favour, and check out Disney On Ice presents Magical Ice Festival. Because if you're the kind of person who has seen Frozen enough times to be able to recite it from beginning to end, this show will make you feel like you're actually in Arendelle, where you belong. Because you do want to build a snowman. You know you do. What's your go to cure for your kids' Frozen fever?
