Disney On Ice, Dare to Dream!

Last night we attended the opening night of Disney On Ice, Dare to Dream at the Staples center, but before we even saw the show we were able to skate with the Princesses!  We were invited as friends of Baby Buggy, a charity organization that collects gently used baby products such as strollers, highchairs, toys, clothing and even diapers for families in need.  I am a “friend” of Baby Buggy and have been supporting their mission for over the last year.  Baby Buggy was the non-profit being highlighted for opening night here in Los Angeles and everyone was asked to bring diapers as a donation for families in need.

For the Holiday season downtown Los Angeles has an ice skating rink at LA Live in the Nokia Plaza. The gigantic Christmas tree lights up the ice and all the video screens in the plaza makes the rink a colorful light show on ice.  We skated right along side all the Princes and Princesses.  Cinderella, Tatinana, Rapunzel, Belle, Snow White and Jasmine were all there with their handsome beaus.  After the ice skating we headed into the VIP reception for photos with Mickey Mouse and dinner before the show.

One of the highlights of the night had to be when McKenna spotted Bella from “Shake it Up!” she was so excited but totally kept her cool.  I polietly asked for a picture, she was very sweet anad happily took a photo with McKenna.

Even though my daughter is out of the while Princess phase and my son seemed to be more impressed with the light up toy he got, I was very excited to see Disney On Ice.  I remember my Mom taking me to so many Disney On ice shows  (if not all of them) when I was a little girl.  It was always a special tradition that we did together, just the two of us.

Spoiler Alert:
They tell three Disney stories, The Princess and the Frog, Cinderella and Tangled (which is my favorite).  But they of course have all the classic Disney characters, Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and Donald Duck  be apart of the show too.  The opening and grand finale are really both really exciting too.  I was worried the show wasn’t going to have enough “boy” stuff but there were plenty of “boy” characters, fireworks and stunts to keep my little guy entertained.

The show was spectacular, I mean who would expect anything less?

    I AM SOOOO JEALOUS!!! I want to say “My son would be so jealous if he saw this,” which would probably still be true. But no. I, ME, I am so jealous!! This is so cool!
