Disney On Ice shows have been around since the 1980s, and since then, people have debated where was the best place to sit for Disney on Ice. When the announcement dropped that Disney On Ice: Frozen was to be the latest movie to move from the silver screen to the ice rink, we figured it was about time to review the Disney On Ice Seating Chart. Below you will find detailed Disney On Ice Seating Charts, including best and worst seats, Disney on Ice Schedules and Tickets, plus how to score Disney on Ice Discounts!
Disney On Ice Seating Chart – Standard Arena Layout
This layout above is for Disney On Ice: Frozen at the Izod Center in New Jersey, but all Basketball/Hockey venues follow a similar pattern, where only half the venue is used. For each Disney on Ice venue, TickPick has unique interactive seating charts that you can access by using the ticket link above. Ideally, you’d want to sit in the centrally located sections such as section 107 or 123, but we will cover this in greater detail below.
Disney On Ice Seating Chart – Standard Stadium Layout
The layout above is of the typical football stadium (or ballpark) layout for Disney On Ice (this particular example is for NRG Stadium in Houston). Because of the size of these stadiums, the rink is stationed in one of the corners, with temporary seating brought in to surround the ice. The lettered sections normally have between 1-4 rows, while the single digit sections have between 12-20 rows. Ideally, you want to sit in the single digit sections, as the permanent sections essentially act as the “upper level” for these layouts.
Where to Sit for Disney On Ice?
The fundamental question for any Disney On Ice event, regardless of venue, is where should I sit? Now the easy answer would be to sit in the front row in one of the central sections at Disney on Ice, but front row seats come at premium prices. No doubt that a front row seat is the best Disney On Ice seat, and will give both you and your kids an experience you won’t soon forget. If you can afford it, we certainly recommend taking advantage, but plenty of folks can’t afford front row seats, and there are plenty of other great seats to be had at a fraction of the cost.
A general rule of thumb when you are purchasing tickets for Disney On Ice is that if you cannot be in the front row, you want to sit higher than row 10 in any of the lower level sections. The reason for this is because sitting at row 10 and above will provide you with enough height to see the performance from anywhere on the ice, ensuring your children will have a great time. It’s also worth noting that when you bring children to any event, aisle seats are more valuable since they provide easy access to concessions and bathrooms.
Upper level seats are an affordable option for Disney On Ice, but if you go this route, make sure you sit in the first couple of rows. This is because the upper level row differences are more noticeable than anywhere else. For example, the difference in row 2 to row 6 is much more noticeable than that same gap in a lower level section. Finally, you also want to try to avoid the corner sections in the upper level, since those seats are the farthest away from the rink and are generally the worst Disney On Ice seats.
