Last night Becky and I and our kids attended opening night of Disney On Ice “Rockin’ Ever After” at The Energy Solutions Arena in Salt Lake City. I really liked that they added Merida this time around. My boys’ favorite part was definitely the archery with her! And, not only is Merida new, the whole show is different. So if you have been in years past you will still have fun this year.
I’m so glad that I’m able to take my kids to see these fun shows. I know we are making memories that will last forever. If you haven’t purchased tickets yet I definitely recommend you buy them now. They will be selling out quickly!

If you ask upstate New York native Taylor Firth what she wants audiences to get from her performance in Disney On Ice presents Rockin’ Ever After she’ll tell you, “I want to portray energy and her excitement when I’m skating.” However, if you take a closer look, you might just recognize Taylor from her leading role in the 2010 remake of the 1978 skating classic Ice Castles. “Filming was a lot of hard work, but it was so fun to be doing something totally new. I learned a lot about myself during that time, and I would not trade that experience for anything,” she says.
She’s quick to remind people, however, that skating is her passion and she doesn’t plan on leaving the ice anytime soon. Taylor began skating at the age of six, following in the footsteps of big sister Shannon. “At first I wanted nothing to do with skating, I wanted to be a gymnast,” she says. “But I kept up with it and fell in love.” Taylor is a three-time National Competitor, a four-time International Competitor and has won Gold in U.S. Figure Skating Freestyle and Moves in the Field. “Going to my first Nationals was one of the most amazing experiences of my life,” she says.
Some day Taylor hopes to be a skating coach or a choreographer because she loves working with kids and seeing them achieve their dreams. If a kid out there is dreaming of being a performer her advice to them is, “Don’t ever hold back from your dreams because you never know what could happen. Go for it!”.
