Disney On Ice is magical. Thanks to Mom Central and Feld Entertainment, I was able to share the Disney On Ice presents Celebrations experience with my three little ones: Andre, Amareah and Anna.
Celebrations was a giant party on ice and all the Disney favorites were there. There was a winter wonderland with Mickey and Minnie, a Halloween haunt with villains like Captain Hook and Cruella de Vil, a ball with the princesses and their beaus, and wonderfully, beautiful celebrations from around the world.
When the show began, last night at Philips Arena, my children sat with looks of absolute wonder and focus on their little faces. I think it's one of the few times I've ever seen them all sitting still and quiet at once.
I must admit that I was quite enthralled myself. It was more than half way through the show when Amareah started turning to me and saying, "Mommy, that princess is from Beauty and the Beast" or my favorite realization: "That's the princess who kisses the frog and turns into a frog."
I couldn't resist my own exclamations: "Amareah," I said as I leaned over 2-year-old Anna, "I like that one best, they're in Japan." When the scene switched to China, Amareah got really excited because her class studied China for International Day at school last year.
Their reactions at the end of the show were priceless. It's like everything that they saw downloaded into their brains as soon as the curtain closed on the final Disney character. Then they began chattering about what they liked, what they saw and what was the best.
On Thursday, Anna finally began talking about the show. It was the first time she ever saw - and probably will remember - something like that. It was a spectacular show.
Andre and Amareah were so pleased to recognize the princesses and other Disney characters, and it was really a joyful evening watching the expressions on their faces. I can't wait until the next show, which hopefully Amber will be able to attend with us. It was such a pleasure to experience Disney magic; it really ignites the kid in me.

Before the show we had the pleasure of meeting Mickey Mouse at a meet and greet event before the show. Mickey is just as cute in person. :) We got our picture taken with Mickey; however, Anna would have no part in it and stood beside the young man who took our picture. They were even so nice as to provide a Polaroid of the shot, which is inside of a Disney Toy Story frame on our refrigerator.
Andre and Amareah enjoyed coloring pictures of Disney characters while they waited for the show to start. Anna finally warmed up to coloring, but she would not put on her party hat.
