My 25th birthday gift from my wonderful (Disney hating) other half, was tickets to the famous tour that I haven't been to for years! When I saw that Disney on Ice was at our nearest arena the week of my birthday I had to go! I would not have been able to afford to go had Jake not been kind enough to order the tickets for my Birthday weeks and weeks in advance so thank you poopy pants!
When the 11th of October finally arrived I had a long, fun time before I even made it to the show - work, drive down to Woodhorn where we saw the Poppies from the Tower of London (separate post coming soon), shopping and lunch with Laura and then finally World of Enchantment time!
The waiting time beforehand only made the anticipation grow and I am sure I was more excited than any of the children sitting nearby so when it started and I was wooping and cheering it was no surprise that people looked at me as if I were crazy...
We had great seats! Just behind the wheelchair area which I found to be not too close so I couldn't see everything in one go and not so far back I couldn't see the skaters faces.
I was petrified that I was going to cry though. I'm a big cryer and don't only leak from the eye holes when I'm sad but when I'm happy, excited, overwhelmed and when meeting Mickey Mouse haha. Luckily I managed to keep my composure for once, but each story was so well done that sitting there as a 24 (&364 days) year old watching some stories from my childhood come to life was very emotional.
Obviously Cars and Frozen aren't that close to my heart - I enjoy Frozen as much as any true Disney fan but it really has gotten out of hand now...though that's another issue. Anyways, despite those two not exactly being my faves, I really enjoyed them and was more amazed at the cars than many of the kids.
I have to say Toy Story was my favorite of course and not only because the story line, props and skaters were amazing but also because I know Woody! Yeah, you know Woody too, but I know Woody as I went to college with him. It was pretty insane to watch someone I know doing what he loves and is amazing at. My claim to fame there eh lol.
Did you or are you seeing this Disney on Ice tour? What was your favorite part/who are you most excited to see?
