Happily Ever After

We took Lucy and my niece, Sam to see Disney on Ice this past Sunday. Maybe it was the little girl in me, but damn if I wasn’t sucked right in to it just as much as they were.

Events like this, what, with the chaos of entering and finding seats give me a huge case of the Nervous Tummy. So much so that when Hub suggested dropping us off at the door since it was raining, and just meeting us at our seats, I started hyperventilating. We opted for the $10 up front parking instead, and all walked in together. The lines weren’t bad and we made it through security with no problems, however, when the usher scanned our tickets, he looked puzzled. He tried again, and nothing. He paged Customer Service and had someone come and escort us to the business office. A million different (horrifying) scenarios were running through my head. I had printed the tickets at work—what if someone had gotten to them and copied them and had already used them? What if I entered our credit card number one digit off and they think I am a thief. I’m sure I was white as a ghost and under my breath I just kept saying “ohmygod ohmygod ohmygod”. When we got to the business office though, it was a completely different story. The arena had mistakenly allowed us to book seats that were blocked by a camera and so, even though we had only paid $12 for our seats, we were upgraded 2 levels, to just under the suites in the second row of the 200 section. It was AWESOME. I never have such good luck!

So off we went to our seats, and we really enjoyed the show. They started with Aladdin, and moved through other various princess stories. This was the first time I really got a chance to use my new camera and all of its features too, so I was doubly giddy. And I took over 150 photos.





Sam was so excited and appreciative. She loved every minute of it. Not to say that Lucy wasn’t, but you could tell the difference between the child who does a lot of things and the child who has not. I think though, that Sam liked the cotton candy best of all.


Hub complained, but I think he thought it was pretty cool too. Here is a rare photo of my Prince Charming with my beautiful Lucy.


Here I am too, not content to let the girls be the only princesses.



I really have to say that Disney did a fantastic job with this production. The characters were believable, and they even found a way to work in Mickey, Minnie and Tinkerbell. I would do it again in a minute! Well maybe not a minute, but you get the picture. It was a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

So fun! I've always wanted to go to Disney on Ice, but we've never managed to make it. Maybe next year!
