Tips for families when attending Disney on Ice Detroit

  • Arrive early. Get there early to have ample time to hit concession stands, bathrooms and souvenir shopping.
  • Book parking in advance. Stressed about parking? Pay for parking ahead of time online. The website shows you a map of different parking lots (all within 10-minutes of walking distance) and the amount they cost.
  • Leave cash at home. LCA is a cash-less venue. You will have to have a debit or credit card to purchase anything. There’s an option to convert cash to a VISA card (no fees) at the kiosks at Portal 9 and Portal 58.
  • Kids can dress up! Let your kids dress in costume to the show. Kids without a costume can still participate in the fun. They can braid their hair like Elsa and Anna or wear a Disney shirt.
  • Capture memories. Turn the camera and record your child watching the show. Seeing this experience through their eyes will make it all worth it!
  • Join the character experience. For an extra $70, you can make your kid’s day with the pre-show Moana Character Experience. Kids will enjoy crafting, a sing along and more interactive time with Moana. You’ll also have photo opportunities with Moana’s special guest, Mickey Mouse. Note: Each guest must purchase the Character Experience add-on and a Disney on Ice show ticket.

  • Grab a bite to eat. Mike’s Pizza Bar is the perfect spot to get food if you’re in a rush. For starters, it’s inside Little Caesars Arena, and the service is freaky fast!
  • Eat at the venue. Another quick eatery to try is UWM District Market. You can stop in for a coffee or smoothie, or enjoy a freshly-made meal or baked good. Plus, the eatery’s located at LCA.
  • Enjoy a sweet treat. End the night with over-the-top shakes from JoJo’s Shake Bar. Reserve your table online beforehand because the place fills up, especially on the weekends.
