You may be like me and have said all kinds of things about how your children would not be Disney-obsessed-fan-kids when indeed you had children. Not that I didn’t love Disney myself, not that I didn’t know alllll the words to a few of their biggest movie’s theme songs, just that I didn’t want a bunch of licensed toys strewn through my home when I eventually had my own children.
But the truth is that unless you are totally anti-disestablishment, your kids (and mine) come to love all things Disney in some way, shape or form. It’s kind of unavoidable if you have TV, if you enjoy attending movies as a form of entertainment, if you enjoy music and like to sing at the top of your lungs as you drive from kindy to school and back again a few times a week and if you throw birthday parties where school or kindy or playgroup peers come bearing gifts that include all manner of things Disney. And you know what, you will come to love it all because your kids love it and part of being a parent is learning to love all that they do and enjoying it equally because it makes them oh-so-very-happy! (I admire my parents so much now for holding their tongues and going along with my NKOTB obsession, for allowing me swoon over hideously huge posters of Joey McIntyre that I insisted on hanging above my bed!)
Two years ago I took my daughter and her grandmothers to Disney on Ice for Mothers’ Day. It was such a special outing and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. I had assumed my son would be too young and that it was too Princess-focused for him to get a kick out of it, but I sat through the entire show knowing he would have loved it too. So, when the show returned last year, I booked tickets for all of us. And all of us loved it!
This year we are so excited to go again and to also be able to give THREE lucky families the chance to attend too!
Join your favourite Disney Princesses and their heroic Princes in a classic meets contemporary celebration of 75 years of Disney Princess stories. Laugh at Disney’s hilarious hair-raising escapade, Tangled, as Rapunzel; her unlikely companion, Flynn; and Maximus, the Captain of the Guard’s determined horse; embark on an uproarious journey that takes adventure to new lengths! Travel to the enchanted forest with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs as Snow White escapes from the Evil Queen in her search for her one true love. And, watch as fanciful dreams become reality as Cinderella meets her Prince Charming, with a glass slipper fit for an unforgettable fantasy come true. Audiences will boogie to the beat of the bayou in a magical, musical journey that celebrates the story of The Princess and the Frog with Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen.
