Disney on Ice Review and how I almost lost a tooth

Written by on October 11, 2012 in Charlotte, NC - 4 Comments

Do you ever feel like your children come running at you, open-mouthed and screaming, their every intention to abuse you until they get what they want, even when you are trying to do something nice for them?

Toy Story 3 toys, I feel your pain. Hide in the corner before they destroy you.

Last night we went to Disney on Ice: Worlds of Fantasy at Time Warner Arena. John and I took the two Wee Frat Boys, of course, and Frat Boy the Elder was on his best behavior. Frat Boy the Younger, however, showed everyone in the vicinity what it is like to be two years old, past his bedtime on a school night, and not have ample enough time to spend at a Buzz and Woody picture spot positioned just outside of the seating area.

Jessie! You are my favorite! Point at me! Say “hi” to me!

When I took him away from his toddler-sized, plastic Buzz and Woody besties, he threw an ever-loving fit. I took him to our seats, where he promptly head-butted me in the chin. The crack of bone against bone was so loud that I couldn’t believe the skin on my chin didn’t split open. I looked around shamelessly for Super Nanny, but she did not appear.

But then something amazing happened: the show started.

Well, hello there. I see that you are magic.

And Frat Boy the Younger and his brother sat for two hours less a short intermission, rapt and in awe of their favorite dancing, skating, singing characters.

Disney on Ice, I salute you for being excellent. Anything that can keep the attention of small kids and adults for that period of time (though I did get a little antsy toward the end) is amazing and worth every penny.

They did a great job of incorporating characters of different genres that generally appeal to boys and girls. Since I’m a mom of two car, gun, and ball-loving boys, I’m not familiar with Tinkerbell and her heritage. During this show, I learned all about it, and I was also happy to see that there are actually boy fairies included in the performance.

This picture doesn’t do it justice, but trust me when I say that I need this dress the Fairy Queen wore.

Audience participation was encouraged, and there were bubbles and music and sing-alongs. It was a magical evening, and I can’t wait to do it again. (But next time I’ll bring a sweater. I wore long sleeves, but I was chilly during the performance. That whole “on Ice” thing didn’t clue me in that it might be cold in there.)

      That is it! Isn’t it gorgeous? And is that a man wearing it? Disney is way progressive!

      Thanks, Andrea. Was sore for a few days, but I’m all better now.
