Costumes, skating make Disney’s ‘Rockin’ Ever After’ a cool treat

Princesses rule in the latest Disney on Ice presentation, “Rockin’ Ever After,” playing the TD Garden through Feb. 24. The title is a little bit of a misnomer though, because what Disney on Ice does best is combine the heart of some of its favorite films with elegant and athletic figure skating.

The films chosen for this go-round include “The Little Mermaid,” “Tangled,” “Beauty and the Beast” and a snippet from “Brave.” As always, the show opens with Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy warming up the crowd, and they open with an odd, celebrity-style interview with Pinocchio, followed by a brief appearance by Cinderella’s stepsisters Mickey says is part of a “gala-palooza.” The quartet then skate out of the way as Sebastian, that clever crab from “The Little Mermaid,” leads a bevy of mermaids in a medley of ’80s rock songs (parents will recognize Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”).
