A few months back I went online to order our annual Disney on Ice tickets so I text my almost 15 year old son David asking if he wanted me to buy him a ticket and he responded with "yyyyeeeeessssss!" I totally wasn't expecting that response, it's a show geared for the little ones but I was extremely excited that we would all be going together for one more year at least.
Unfortunately after I purchased I realized it was the same show they presented two years ago so I knew it was going to be a drag for Jon and I, but the kids didn't mind and really we're only going for them anyway.
Last year Jon wasn't working so we didn't have any intention of buying tickets but at the last minute we were given five free tickets from somebody who couldn't use them. When we got there the kids were told they would not be able to buy food/souvenirs because it's so expensive. They agreed but once inside they saw everyone else getting cotton candy and light up wands which gave them sad faces. This year the first thing Ryan asked when we got tickets was "since dad is working now, can we get a souvenir at the show?" so I caved and promised them each one thing.
The show didn't keep Ryan's interest this year, David was checking the time on his phone every 1/2 hour and Jon actually fell asleep. Let's be real...this show ended up being for Haylee. She got the Little Mermaid dress beforehand and was all excited to get fixed up, she got popcorn and a snow cone while we were there and she loved every minute of it. The rest of us could probably never attend again and not bat an eye over it.
They do put on a great show though, if you haven't already seen it before. I wish I had realized before hitting the "buy" button that we had been there and done that just two years ago.
Either way, it was a nice Saturday afternoon for the five of us; albeit expensive as all get out but it might have just been our last.
