I had been wanting to do something special for my rugrat princess since she had been doing so great in school. She was seeing all these commercials about her favorite Disney characters coming to town. I thought this would be a perfect surprise since she’s never been to anything like this! I opened my mouth sooner than what I should because when I went to search for tickets they were outrageous! Later I found out I was looking in the wrong place. I decided I was going to enter a few giveaways and try to win tickets! I had told her we couldn’t go and it broke her heart into a million pieces she was absolutely shattered. I had to find away to get those tickets someway, somehow!! Finally one morning I got an email saying, “Disney On Ice Winner” and I was just absolutely estatic and in shock!! I started jumping up and down because I knew this would make my rugrat princess’ day!! I eventually told her and hubby and they were so excited! We were going to see Disney On Ice!! Thanks to “Macaroni Kid” & “Feld Inc” also a special thanks to Nate Eisenberg over at Feld Inc. for everything! Here we come Mickey & Minnie’s Magical Journey…
We arrived just in time for the show after getting lost outside so we thought. In all reality we just ended up on the wrong side.
I went to the will call window to pick up my 4 tickets. I had no clue what seats I had and I figured I’d be up at the top somewhere. I started looking at my tickets at it said, “Section 2 , Row C, Seats 1-4” and I said Section 2? That sounds like great seats since I had already looked at the map of the arena. I went to this lady to check anyway. She said, “Well honey you have the best seats in the house, those are floor seats right next to them!” I about freaked because I knew my rugrat princess was in for a shocker!
I took lots of pics with my camera’s screen cracked. I didn’t think the pics would turn out at all that’s why I took so many.
When the performance started Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, and Goofty who came stumbling out and landed in the audience. Goofy was always falling down in the audience. I guess ice skating isn’t his thing! 😉 I had a pic of him falling in the audience but to many children’s faces to be posting. They welcomed everyone to show and waved to the audience before exiting the stage.
Next we heard the voice of Rafiki from, “The Lion King” and there he came climbing down from “Pride Rock” and explaining about the circle of life.
Simba & Nala the cutest ever!! They told the story of, “The Lion King” and these two skated to my favorite song on the movie. Elton John’s “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” it was so breath taking! You can see by the pics but these pics don’t do it justice.
Right after or before this performance Nala jumps out on Timon & Pumba and tries to attack them. Timon freaks out and Pumba says there’s nothing to worry about she’s not going to eat us. Timon disagrees and says lions eat little guys like you and me. Simba reassures them that it won’t happen. Then realizes it’s Nala!
The Lion King characters exit the stage. Mickey & friends return with a change in clothing!
Goofy falls out into the audience again. Mickey & friends do a little hello and performance until the next set of characters come onto the ice. Which comes one of my favorites of all time. Our seats were absolutely fabulous!!! We loved them!! The Little Mermaid…
Sebastian was the first character from, “The Little Mermaid” to arrive on stage and then he welcomed Ariel’s sisters to stage but no Ariel to be found. He says, “Ariel, oh Ariel where is that girl?” Of course Ariel is in an under the sea adventure looking for treasures as always! It was so awesome because they had a bubble machine above the arena that sent thousands of bubbles into the audience and over the ice!! We were catching bubbles in our hands and the kids really loved that especially rugrat princess!! The Little Mermaid & The Lion King are two of her favorites so far but she loves whos next too!!
The evil Ursella tricked Ariel into one of her little plots as always. Trying to trick her to come with her. This Ursella was HUGE too it was awesome! Then Eric comes and rescues his princess!
This was a HUGE, HUGE blow up of Ursella that reached the upper level of the Arena! When Eric defeated Ursella she shrunk like this with a bunch of *fog* rising from the ice! Great effects!! Really great!!
Next it was time for Hula classes with, “The Lilo & Stitch” characters!! First entering the stage was Lilo’s hula teacher and classmates including Mertle! They walked out on the ice down a set of stairs. Guess who was running behind as always? LILO!!! She ran in with her bathing suit on with the pau over it. Running behind her teacher was mad.
Right after this pic was snapped a falling star (pyro effects went across the top of the arena) shot across the sky and Lilo & Nony were fighting over who saw it first and who gets to make a wish!
Jumba & Pleakley carry Stitch away after the queen alien commander orders!
**BREAK TIME. WE HAD 15 MINUTES OF INTERMISSION TO GO TO THE RESTROOM OR GET SOMETHING TO EAT/DRINK**
Now it’s time to say goodbye to Mickey & friends. M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E Mickey Mouse, Mickey Mouse!! That’s the song they played at the end.
I couldn’t get over how great this show was. It would have definitely been worth the money even if I had to pay. This is a perfect and wonderful experience that I hope my rugrat princess will remember to tell her kids one day. I know it’s a show that will be forever in my head and most definitely in my heart. These actors/actresses figure skaters did such a fantastic job I would give this show 5 stars +++!! It was absolutely breath taking the whole time. I’ve always loved all these shows and characters so it meant alot to me also. Thank you to Disney, Macaroni Kid, Feld Inc., & Nate for making a dream come true for a little girl and two big kids!!
*~*DREAMS DO COME TRUE*~* with “Mickey & Minnie’s Magical Journey”
