A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes

Saturday, we were lucky to have replacement tickets for Disney on Ice. I went before my 2nd haircut so I could trade in our passes for actual tickets only to be disappointed to read that they only had single seats available until Sunday.

I went up to the window and asked anyway. We were in luck, they had just released some seats.
We were lucky enough to end up in a suite!

 The Bambinos were so cute and so excited. They refused to sit on our laps at all instead preferring to look over the ledge jumping with excitement.
 They clapped when the crowd clapped, and periodically glanced at us to gauge our reaction. Boyfriend and I couldn't help but smile as we watched the show through their eyes.
 There's something just so cool about seeing something through the wonder and amazement of a child. It's also cool to think that they'll get the same kind of joy from watching the characters I loved so much as a child. It was kind of one of those full circle moments.

 We woke them from their nap an hour early so we could take Santa pictures so at one point the Bambinos started getting a little antsy and B bought them their first bucket of popcorn.

Bug loooved it. I'm talking two hands in the bucket, shoving his whole hand into his mouth as he's shoveling popcorn at all times kind of love. I had to keep Peanut from eating the pieces Bug dropped on the ground.

The show was called Dare to Dream and focused on the stories of The Princess and the Frog (is that what it's called? The movie with Tiana?) Cinderella, and Tangled. They did an amazing job on the costumes, but my very favorite was the horse from Tangled, Maximus. I'm glad I watched Tangled and Tiana's movie's recently.

I was a little disappointed that they didn't do some of my favorite stories like Aladdin and the Little Mermaid, but I realized that the kids the show is actually aimed for have never seen Aladdin or Little Mermaid in theaters and most likely not at home either. I'm sure the only reason they did Cinderella was because it was just re-released.

Being in the suite was nice because we were able to let the Bambinos run around and chase each other during intermission. There weren't too many other people sharing the suite with us, but there were a set of 4 year old boy/girl twins. It was fun being able to talk twins with their mom, but she made me really scared of potty training! 

I'm so glad that we were able to get another set of tickets after I misplaced the first pair; even though the show was about princesses, it wasn't overly girly and even if it was, my bambinos would have loved it anyway.
