Disney on Ice

If you have anyone in your home under the age of 10, I can honestly say the $30 for a ticket is well worth the show that Disney has put on Ice. We took 3 little girls under 5 last night and they were thrilled to see some of their beloved Disney character’s in real life. The shows does run a little long – 2 full hours, which includes a 15 intermission and a really long – drawn out skit on Peter Pan. Personally our whole crew could have done without the intermission, that just gave all our girls a chance to get really tired, a short and sweet little skit on Peter Pan, just like the rest of the skits in the show and it would have been tidied up in an hour and a half. On a positive note the volume level is not in your face loud and the old Corral was toasty warm inside. But be prepared to spend at least $22 on a light wand of some sort – everyone one wants one for the dark.
