Last night my husband and I took our daughter to see Disney on Ice. It was her 5th birthday present and the second year we have done this for her so I guess it is kind of tradition now.
I have incredible memories of Disneyland and Disney World. When I was a kid we used to go every Christmas to one or the other. I have been on the Haunted Mansion ride more than anyone probably should, LOL. “Hurry Baaaaack.” So of course when I had kids we also started going. Although to be honest as I get older I have less tolerance for the crowds. It just didn’t used to be that way. Now you can wait 2 hours in line to go on ONE ride.
Disney on Ice is a nice way to get that Disney feeling close to home. Last night we saw Disneyland Adventure on Ice…although my daughter kept calling it Princesses on Ice, which was the theme from last year. In the show, The Incredibles family decide to take a Disneyland vacation. Mr. Incredible keeps thinking the rides are real and breaks a few them. But then Syndrome shows up and kidnaps Mickey and Minnie. The Incredibles have to leave their disguises behind and suit up to save the day.
The show took us through many of the best rides… the Jungle Cruise, It’s a Small World, Buzz Lightyear, Alice in Wonderland, Pirates of the Carribean, and my fave, The Haunted Mansion. I adored the ghostly ballroom dancers, dancing around the ice…sigh. We were very close to the action this time, 3rd row from the ice. It was an incredible show!
Paige fell asleep on the ride there so she was a bit dazed at first:
It did not take long for her to get excited though.
Soon even Daddy had the Disney spirit!
And no we did not deliberately buy that, LOL. It came with Daddy’s popcorn. At $10 a bag it is the least they can do right? ;) Good times…
