Disney On Ice

The last weekend of November, Disney on Ice came to Vancouver and we knew we had to be there. Reagan had been seeing the commercials on TV for weeks, and she knew that we had tickets to go. I think she started counting down the number of sleeps almost a month before our ticket date!

We had ordered our tickets with friends, so we left the house early that morning to meet up with them before heading downtown for the big show. Do to a slight mishap of misplaced tickets and an hour's worth of frantic searching for said tickets once we arrived at our friend's house, we arrived at the venue just as the show was starting. This would have been fine except for the fact that we had to park over half a mile away from the coliseum and then run UP HILL IN THE RAIN to get to the place! To make matters worse, once we finally got inside and to our seats we discovered that people were already sitting in our spot... two separate groups of people that required two sets of security to straighten out the dilemma for us. By the time we were finally settled in our seats, we had missed the opening act by Mickey & Minnie and the first set of characters from Cars. Thankfully I don't think the kids were as much aware of the chaos as the adults were. The kids were simply mesmerized by all that was transpiring on the ice down below with The Little Mermaid...
...and then The Lion King came next...
After a brief intermission in which Reagan begged (successfully I might add) for nearly every souvenir that she saw, it was time for the headliner of the show.... TINKERBELL!
My pictures don't do it justice, but Tink's finale was simply beautiful. She definitely saved the day and made sure that Spring arrived! (If you've seen the movie then you understand what I'm talking about.)
And finally, Mickey & Minnie came back out to bid us all farewell from a fun-filled afternoon...
Reagan is already asking when we can go see Disney on Ice again. If it were up to her, I think we would become part of their road crew just so that she could see them all again and again and again!
