My whipper snappers are pretty lucky. Our Playcentre paid for a trip to Disney On Ice a few weekends back, and it was almost too much excitement for our country bunnies.
They only knew who a few of the characters were, so there was lots of questioning. This did not detract in the least from their enjoyment. Mine either. I didn't grow up on a diet of Disney, but I knew most of the stories one way or another.
I wasn't sure it would completely be my cup of tea, to be honest, and was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Okay, some scenes dragged, and there was this whole 'pretty princess' bit that did my head in, but watching these little faces light up when Peter Pan descended, or a song began. So worth it.
It was a lot of traveling, just for one night out, which made us all the more glad to arrive home to this. Hello, Happiness!
