Win 4 Tickets to Disney On Ice Celebrations!

Last year around this same time, I took my daughter to see Disney on Ice. It was a spur of the moment thing, since a friend of the family had discounted tickets and asked if we wanted to go.

My daughter was only 2 1/2 at the time and had never been to Disney World. But, she did watch Playhouse Disney and I thought “Why not?

So we went. And we watched as the performers skated around in their costumes and did lovely flips and twirls and sang. My baby girl was enjoying it for the most part even if she was a wiggly toddler.

Then, the Lion King came on. And, well, the Lion King can be kind of dark and ominous and scary. For a 2 year old anyway. Especially one who had never seen the movie and didn’t know what in the world was happening to Simba’s dad! But, she knew Simba was sad. That much she could tell.

And so my baby girl decided to be empathetic…for Simba. And she cried. And was  scared.

I felt so bad for her because I had brought her here thinking it would be fun and instead she was scared! But…we made it to the end of the show and she enjoyed the Little Mermaid and Tinkerbell segments much more.

This year, she’s much less wiggly, more willing to sit and watch a show, and has been to Disney twice.

So, when I was contacted by Jennifer Bisbee and offered to attend the latest Disney on Ice show with my family, I got all excited at the opportunity to try again. And…of course…one of you gets to go and take your family as well! Just don’t stalk me and my family or anything. Ok? 😉

I have a fabulous, talented, respectful little princess of my own who is well deserving to be surrounded by THE Disney Princesses LIVE! I cherish every mommy/daughter moment and with a new addition to our family, he would also love to see the characters. There’s nothing better than to see a show LIVE!
