For anyone who grew up in the height of the Princess Movie a Year era, you probably could easily sing the opening line of “Look at this stuff, isn’t it neat…” followed up by some “Be our Guest!” and throw in a little “A Whole New World” while you were at it. I am sure it wasn’t just me And if it was, I should really get a singing contract out of it because that is pretty awesome, right? So you can imagine my excitement when I found out Disney On Ice tickets were available through work in our company box and I promptly threw my name in the “lottery”. I said we should go because Lennox really loves music and dancing and how could we pass up the chance….but I mean come on. I probably wanted it more for me. So spoiler alert….
I we won!
While corporate life has its pros and cons, we have definitely made use of my company’s box when we have gotten the chance – definitely a pro. And since Lennox is only 18 months (and it was prime nap time!) we figured if he wasn’t as in to it as I was, we could totally leave (not so secretly I am glad he loved it because leaving early would have sucked!) And Lennox did love it. Of course, so did I. The Little Mermaid and Beauty & The Beast are two of my favorites, and they did summarized versions of both movies – songs and all! – which was awesome. They also did versions of Brave & Tangled. I haven’t seen either of those, but I am pretty excited for the day that Lennox is ready to start watching full length features so I can catch up on all the Disney magic I have missed over the years.
His favorite part was Maximus the horse (on skates!!) from Tangled. I don’t know how two people skate together in a costume like that, but it was pretty great. He was super sad when the horse skated off, and at that point he started to go downhill. But he curled up in my lap and fell asleep soon after, and everything was right in my world Disney & cuddling? Doesn’t get much better than that.
