It’s time to celebrate with Disney on Ice! Ever since I took my daughter to her first Disney on Ice show she asks to go all the time! And we always go with our favorite girlfriends too! This show takes us through different celebrations from all around the world right on back to our very own home. From Birthday’s to Christmas to Chinese New Years. Here are some highlights from this years show.
We partied right along side Alice in Wonderland and her friends the Mad Hatter, Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee, the White Rabbit and of course the Disney gang. Lots of fun, calamity and presents!
We even got to party with Sorcerer Mickey and his magic brooms. He used his magical powers to bring his brooms to life to clean up after the mess the birthday party left. It was super awesome when the brooms glowed in the dark!
Halloween was a blast with all the Villains! You hardly ever see them come out and play but they all came in full force. Cruella DeVille, Captain Hook, Malificent etc. They were all there….in all their mean glory!
Then we celebrated love with Fairy Godmother and all the Princesses. Rylee is in love with all the princesses and she know every single one of them. When each on came out to skate for us she yelled out their names and then looked at me and said “Mom! There is (insert princess name here)” She could not be any more happy than she was during that part of the show.
We then did summer, Mardi Gras, Christmas, Chinese New Year and more!
I could go on and on about all the things we celebrated in the 2 hours we were there but you will have to go and see Disney on Ice Let’s Celebrate for yourself and find your magical moment. There are still lot’s of showtimes available. Head on over to www.disneyonice.com/lets-celebrate and pick a show that works for you. I guarantee you will love it!
Today Melodi and I took our girls to see Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival at the Terrace Theater in Long Beach. Both girls were SUPER excited. They both love Disney and love Mickey even more. We have seen the Disney Live Pirate and Princess show last year so on the way to the theater today they were discussing who they think they will see.
When you first walk in there are LOTS of things to buy. Treats both edible and non edible for both boys and girls. A million and 1 things for little eyes to look at and to ask mom or dad to buy. When we got to our seats I noticed that there was not a bad seat in the whole place! Every seat had a great view of the stage. When the voice came on saying there was only 5 minutes until show time the girls squealed with delight and got in their seats. Us moms didn’t even have to say anything!
DISNEY LIVE! MICKEY’S MUSIC FESTIVAL
The show was fantastic! The show featured rock songs incorporated with Disney favorites such as Aladdin, Little Mermaid and Toy Story. Personally my favorite part of the show was when Ariel’s sisters came onstage and sang “All the Single Ladies” by Beyonce. They even did the Single Ladies dance! Woody and Jessie did Cotton Eyed Joe and Aladdin and the Genie did a little Hip Hop. I do have to say that when the Genie came on and Robin Williams voice came over the sound system saying his iconic “10,000 years will give you such a crick in the neck!” I got a little choked up. It was perfect! The dancing was phenomenal and the costumes were bright and lively. Minnie Mouse had the cutest dress on!
When the show was done we left the theater and Rylee said really loud “That show was AWESOME!” Both girls loved it and wanted to go see it again. You have done it again Disney! We can’t wait to see the next one! Here some fun videos we took! Enjoy!
