Tonight I took DD to see Disney On Ice - Disney Princess Wishes at United Airways Center in Phoenix. I bought front row seats for her, for her 5th birthday, which is next week. We had a great time together. She is too funny! She wanted to dress up so we got a Little Mermaid costume for her and it was so cute! We got many sweet compliments on her costume. There were TONS of other little girls dressed up as their favorite princesses.
DD had never had cotton candy before, or at least not for a long time, and so we got her some. She was nervous to taste it because it felt weird, but once she went for it, she loved it and did not stop eating it. I was impressed because Disney Princess Wishes Vendor had included a wet wipe to clean off your kids hands afterward! SO SMART!!! We also got a keepsake program (with some awesome pictures of the show in it) and it came with a princess rose.
The show was fantastic. I was especially impressed with The Little Mermaid part of the show with the sailors. There was this amazing guy who did a series of back flips in a row on the ice. Later in the show he did a big flip when two guys jumped on one end of a teeter totter platform and he was on the other side. Seriously, so brave that someone could even try that, never mind pull it off night after night. Cinderella's part of the show was amazing too. She came out onto the ice ball room in a carriage (DD was smiling so big). Other favorite things included the two skater camels in Aladdin, the flounder fish which was just a big fish with two legs skating it around, and the fact that Mickey and Minnie and Tinkerbell were the ones leading us through the show. DD loved seeing Mickey and Minnie! Tinkerbell was magical because every time she came out, she had a hand full of glitter and would cast her magic into the air (it was really cool). Oh and we loved the bubbles during the Little Mermaid scene. All in all, we had a most fabulous time. The show ran about 2 hours long with an intermission. It was just perfect. We are thinking of taking DS to a Disney On Ice show for his 5th Birthday, but we have a couple years to think about it!
