Disney on Ice presents 100 Years of Magic {Giveaway}

by Holly on November 1, 2012

I can gauge the years of my life according to which Disney movies were being released. I grew up in a small town in Wyoming where going to the movie theater was the main source of entertainment and always felt like an event, especially when I got to choose a friend, get dropped off with our movie and treat money and go by ourselves (sadly something that my kids won’t enjoy doing for several more years thanks to their super protective/paranoid mama).

The magic in much of my childhood was brought to me by Disney. It was always my go-to place to dream. From Jungle Book to Sleeping Beauty. Cinderella on a chilly afternoon, Little Mermaid which I saw four times in the theater – 3 the first time around, then again when it was re-released. Aladdin, Lion King and so many more!

I’ve only been to Disneyland twice- once when I was very small, then a few years ago when Aidan was small. Cole and Kayla haven’t been yet (though we are hoping to remedy that in 2013!). You’d think that once I was an adult, and didn’t have kids yet there would be a gap there… but not with Disney.

In fact, if my life had a soundtrack it would be wrapped up in the songs and the memories those evoked. I remember being giddy with excitement when we went to Disneyland a few years ago with Aidan, but also a bit scared. What if it wasn’t as magical as I thought it would be? What if it didn’t feel any different or special than going to any another amusement park or event? I should have known better, but the real worry that it would somehow be a letdown was something I just couldn’t let go of.

To get into the mood for the trip we actually ended up going to see Finding Nemo on Ice when it was here. We had to wait for some other family members to arrive with our tickets, which was frustrating because they were late. So, imagine my stunned surprise when, even though I was upset and we missed half the show, I still remember how amazed and thrilled I was with the show and the world that they were able to bring to life on the ice. Aidan was absolutely enthralled and he wasn’t the only one!

At that point I was really excited for our trip to Disneyland – after all, if that was just a small taste of the magic that was in store then there was no way we could be disappointed! And we weren’t! It isn’t a false claim when it’s known as the happiest place on Earth!

My children’s growing years are already strewn with plentiful memories we are building along with the Disney characters. I couldn’t be more excited that this time around the show that is coming includes a cast of so many favorite characters – so helpful when you have so many favorites! (When Aidan was little he would watch Incredibles over and over and over (still hoping they do a sequel to that one!), Monsters, Inc. is a favorite of course and no shock that they adore Toy Story as well!

All I can tell you is that Disney on Ice doesn’t put on just another concert, ice show or run-of-the-mill kid’s entertainment event. This is a SPECTACLE – in all CAPS. An immersion into another world. An escape and a getaway from the everyday. I can’t wait to go build these memories with my kids!

While heading to Disneyland is definitely an end game goal of ours (and yours too I’m sure!) I’m so grateful that Disney on Ice brings their shows here to us so that a piece of that magic is available at a price that’s not only fair and affordable, but a real bargain when it comes down to it!

There is so much of the Disney magic, and yes wisdom, tied up in my life and I can’t wait to share some recipes with you in the coming days about how some of that magic has so directly impacted my life and the way I feel about my family. I really do have some pretty important memories intertwined with my kids. More on that soon!

Disclaimer: I was provided with ticket vouchers for my family to attend a performance in exchange for participating as an ambassador for this event and sharing that information with my readers. This came in really handy because we were budgeting to buy tickets to the show anyway and I’m sure we’ll spend just as much or more on fabulous souvenirs available. Although I’m thrilled to participate, my memories and opinions about this event are 100% my own.
