There is so much to do (indoors) with the family! And some kids only activities too. Winter is a great time to get creative so check out our local museums, entertainment and even cooking classes this week!


Disney on Ice: Reach for the Stars

Prudential Center, Newark

Thursday, January 4th - Sunday, January 21st

Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, and Goofy set the stage for a star-studded talent extravaganza featuring characters from Frozen, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Tangled, and more.

Unleash the magic with royal sisters Anna and Elsa and the hilarious snowman, Olaf, as they sing captivating songs like “Let it Go” and “In Summer.” Life is the bubbles when Sebastian strikes up his hot crustacean band and the Daughters of Triton make a splash as they introduce Ariel in a 1980s pop montage. Get tangled up with a chorus of harmless hooligans when they get a visit from the spirited Rapunzel and her charming ally, Flynn Rider, on their journey to see the floating lights. Relive a tale as old as time when Belle opens her heart to new adventures as the Beast’s enchanted objects take center stage for a dazzling skating spectacle.
