Won 4 tickets to Disney On Ice opening night at Barclay Center courtesy of a rafflecopter contest given by @NancyJHorn. My kids were very excited to go and I invited my mother along as well since she’s never been to Barclay Center. The show started at 7 pm on one of the coldest nights but we were wrapped up very good.
This show brought back so many memories and I loved every performance. The Lion King was amazing, and the cast of Aladdin was fun they even had the magic carpet. I wanted to try it out. Lol. My daughter waited for Tiana from Princess and the Frog to come on stage. I can’t believe I still remembered the songs to most of the stories. I think the parents were singing more than the kids because younger children wouldn’t know the songs from the older stories unless parents sing it everyday in their house.
Everyone’s skating was perfect and so smooth and flawless.
Timon and Pumba was so cute. Loved Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. You just wanna pinch their faces. Of course Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy were fun. I missed Daisy, & Pluto, and want to know why they weren’t there. Regardless they did a great job hosting.
They had intermission 46 minutes after the show started. I guess they know kids can’t sit long without saying “I have to go to the bathroom.” My kids didn’t have to go they just wanted popcorn and drinks and souveniers. I made sure they ate before we left but I splurged on $12 popcorn, drinks, and fries. I refused to pay $22 on a souveneir gadget that spins and lights up. All those toys require batteries and can knock someone out.
What happened to the hustlers who used to be in the street selling souveniers for $3.00-$5.00? When we took the kids to the circus at Madison Square Garden there were always someone with lights and gadgets for cheap.
They also wanted $15 for a cup with a snow cone inside. The cheapest thing they had was a $5.00 coloring book that I bought for my daughter. I told her I would get her the Minnie Mouse toys at Target. Much cheaper!!!
We had a great family night out and can’t wait for the next one!!
