Last night, my family was lucky enough to see the opening performance of Disney On Ice: Passport To Adventure, at the Huntington Center in Toledo, OH. We were all so excited to go to this, and we certainly were not disappointed! We all had the most family fun that we've had in a very long time!
Here's a picture of my 2yr 4.5 month old granddaughter waiting on the show to start:
She wasn't sure what to think, while waiting. Once the show got started though, that all changed in an instant! She kept saying "It's my bithday!" lol. I'm not sure why, but we couldn't convince her otherwise. When the show started, she insisted on standing for almost the entire performance. She'd holler "Oooh!" and point all excited to the characters. Everytime she'd see Donald and Daisy duck she'd holler "A duck!" lol.
Shortly after opening, a group of monkeys started creeping across the top of the stage, to make their way down the staircase and onto the ice. Little Miss Leah noticed this before any of us and sharply drew in her breath while pointing and saying "Wook! Wook Grandma!". She was just completely mesmerized by the entire show!
The skaters were friendly, waving and touching the hands of children whenever they could. Of course, Leah thought that they were waving to her personally each time lol. Every character out there quickly became her "best friend"!
The entire show was just complete magic! From the skaters graceful performaces, to the costumes, props, and special effects, it was all perfect! With The Little Mermaid, the use of bubbles falling from the sky made you feel as if you really were in an under-the-sea adventure. Tink's fairy wand sprinkled real magic fairy dust, and Peter Pan really flew! Even my daughter had a wonderful time, and thanked me three or four times for taking her.
Every time Leah see's a commercial on tv for Disney parks, she says "I want that". Disney On Ice: Passport to adventure was a wonderful alternative! I can't say enough good things about the show. Thank you Disney On Ice for helping us to create some awesome memories that will last a lifetime!
