Disney On Ice

We took Burke and Maggie to see Disney on Ice yesterday. (Logan got to stay with Aunt Cathy – Thanks Cathy!!)

We didn’t even tell them about it until the night before. (I’m already hearing “Are we going to the baseball game today?” Because they heard me talking about the Spinners game we’ll be heading to in the Spring.)

Since we knew they would have no idea how excited they should be about this, we got them all fired up about going on the train to get there. And they kind of got that they’d be seeing the Cars characters and Tinkerbell and others, but I think they equated it to seeing them on TV – not live and in person.

So off to the train we went.

When we got there, we got in line to see the princess dresses on display. Maggie *loves* Cinderella, so we took her picture in front of the most coveted dress.

And then, much to our pleasure, the real Cinderella showed up!

Unfortunately, by the time we got up there, Cinderella had to go. But Belle (from Beauty and the Beast) took over in her place.

(Maggie was playing shy girl because someone else took our picture.)

We stopped to get some snacks (and a beer for Mike) and headed off to look for our seats. You should have seen the “Oh thank God there’s beer here” looks Mike got from the other dads we passed. LOL

We found our seats and I hear “Is that Maggie?” from the row behind us. Turns out that one of their class mates was there too! I hadn’t met the mom, but I recognized the little girl. Her mom said that she recognized Maggie’s yellow bow. LOL I suppose it is hard to miss. And we did get quite a few compliments on it throughout the day.

Waiting for the show to start (I kind of had my camera at a strange angle on some of these…)

And Mike was tickled to see that Rafiki even had the monkey butt going on.

The kids were still transfixed.

I loved how they did the wildebeests. The skaters had one on each arm and one on their head to make it look like there was a pack of them. Pretty cool

Intermission brought playing with their new light-up toys and the Zamboni! As soon as the lights came up, Burke declared that he wanted to see it again. (Like I could rewind and push play LOL) Luckily, there was more coming.

Act 2 brought Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy back as the hosts.

Maggie was happy that it started again.

Tinkerbell was the final act. Burke got a little restless and had to go out and run around for a little bit. But it wasn’t long before they came back.

Burke liked the flying queen.

The grand finale had Tinkerbell flying and Mickey and his gang back out in formal attire.

It was a great show! And the kids loved it. My favorite part? Watching the kids’ faces. (I’m such a mom!)

  1. Wow! Great pictures! We are so there when they come here!

  2. looks like you all had a fabulous time. love the photos!

  3. That looks like it was so much fun. My daughter would love to go to Disney On Ice. I hope they come here soon.

  4. Nancy, It was so great to see these photos! I had literally just bought tickets for later this week when I read your blog. I think the kids will have a great time.

  5. Looks like a great time. We made the mistake of seeing the previous one with the Incredibles, Alice in Wonderland and featuring Disneyland. It was basically about the Incredibles which Katie had never seen and the bad guy from the Incredibles kidnapped Mickey which pretty much devastated Katie. The entire intermission she kept saying – where Mickey, where Mickey go? I think we should have stuck it out for this one which was only a few months later. Incidentally, she loves watching the Incredibles now.

  6. Oh it looks like you all had SUCH a great time! (and I’m “such a mom” too — I remember doing the very same thing when we did Sesame Street Live.)

    The picture of the full Zoo is AWESOME!

    (And thank you for the kind work wishes! It went GREAT…was even out in time to pick up the kids. 🙂 )

  7. Looks like Mommy was transfixed too!

  8. How cool! I love all things Disney!

  9. That looks like such a great show – The Little Miss would love it.

  10. Hi Everyone!
    We are so glad that Disney on Ice was such a big hit! It sounds like it was a great day for all of you! It brought back memories of when we took Meghan to Lake Placid to see DOI, and Sesame Street Live shows. Those are wonderful times to remember, because kids grow up too fast!!

    Love you!
    Dad & Sue

  11. My daughter wants to grow up strong like Simba and Prince Eric. She was amazed at the lifts.
