Disney on Ice

Last weekend Kinley and I had a mommy-daughter date with some of our playgroup friends to Disney on Ice! Disney4 I was not really sure what to expect when we bought the tickets, I just thought it would be something fun for us to do together.
But, I seriously loved Disney on Ice.
 The only other "kid theatre" show we had seen together was Dora Live and although we had a great time the Disney on Ice production blew that one out of the water.
It was so fun!
All the kids came dressed up as their favorite Disney character.
(sorry, most of these are phone pics which aren't great but, I did steal some off FB from Stacee)
Maverick was the most precious Flynn "Eugene" Rider, complete with frying pan, (Rapunzel's love from Tangled for those unfamiliar), Annabelle Grace was Alice in Wonderland and Kinley was Cinderella.
 One of the most fun things was just riding all the way to the event together with all three of these kiddos. They were so excited and so fun to listen to on the way. IMG_2936 IMG_2937
We met up with Arabella (AKA Snow White) and Mila and Ella (also as Cinderella). Eugene could not be bothered with a picture on the bench and Kinley did her best sitting down posing. IMG_2946 IMG_2943 IMG_2940
Stacee bought all our tickets together and they were Row the front row. It was beyond exciting. All the characters would skate right up in front of us and step up on this elevated platform and wave right at the kids.
 They were thrilled.

When Dopey came out for the Snow White story AG literally gasped with excitement. It was so cute. And Kinley, Mila, and Ella were thrilled when this princess showed up in the finale. Disney3 Well, most were thrilled the whole time.
Kinley and Mav were a little scared of the noise at first so we decided to sit in a few seats we had on the second row. Not a shocker for me with Kinley. Pretty much any announcer and any kind of group applause are scary for her. Who knows?? She sat like this much of the show and wanted to call Daddy during intermission to tell her she missed him and was scared. But, even though she tried as much as she could to bury her head in my chest and cover her ears, she could not take her eyes off the show.

She braved her way back in for the second half and by the end she was standing up with applause and excitement. disney IMG_2979 IMG_2978 This is something I would totally do again and recommend to anyone. And if you want to pay the extra $15 and get on the front row it was totally worth it! Disney2
