Have you ever heard the commercial that says, “We'll see you the whole seat, but you'll only need the edge!”?
I didn't know that applied to Disney On Ice.
True, I hyped it up a little in preparation, and Grace told everyone we met that,
We're going see something very special today!
But when we approached the arena, and she saw the Disney character posters, she nearly jumped out of her skin.
The show started at her bedtime, and she would wake up the following morning with a temperature of 103.5 (the flu), but that did not deter her from jumping up and down on her seat.
MICKEY MOUSE! She squealed with her hands up to her face. It's MICKEY MOUSE!
Try though she may, she could not sit down.
Mickey and Minnie Mouse were in most of the performances. There was an UnBirthday party, a Valentine's Ball, a Hawaiian luau, and a celebration of festivals from around the world. They were all fun and catchy.
Grace spent most of the first half of the show on her feet, most of it squealing and laughing.
Except, there was a Halloween party with villains from a variety of different shows. Grace was afraid and hiding behind the (very tall) man in front of me. I thought the Halloween party was too loud, and it went on far too long. We could have done without that performance entirely.
It did end, though, and Grace forgot all about it.
When I asked her favorite part, she said, without hesitation, Mickey Mouse. And Minnie. Mouses. The mouses my favorite. And the doggies. My love doggies.
That was, of course, on the drive home in which I was falling asleep and Grace was wide awake, chattering away.
I think my favorite part was the finale, where Mickey and Minnie and their friends celebrated Christmas. Goofy came down the chimney as Santa, and Grace jumped up again.
I'm not a huge Disney fan, and I didn't think that Grace would know the characters in the show. In the end, neither mattered.
The show was beautiful, and Grace recognized some of the characters. The rest, she labeled as ballerinas or princesses, and that was okay.
She was jubilant and that was something special.
