Disney on Ice

Dear Disney, 
You almost got us...we almost spent $1000 on your crazy food and gear at Disney on Ice, but we somehow escaped without much but a $7 popcorn and a very tired but happy little girl.  Thanks for a great time, but seriously...why so expensive!?!?!

We went to Disney on Ice a couple of weeks ago and I have to admit, I may have been more excited then Ellie was. I mean, she didn't really even know what the heck I was talking about until I showed her a video. I love Disney and the princesses and ice skating...so HELLO: Disney on Ice was going to be pure magic. Thankfully, we were not disappointed and Ellie LOVED it.(so did I...and Joe too, surprisingly)  These were the moments I dreamed of when I thought about being a mom and having a daughter so it was fun to actually live that moment.

 Obviously dressing up as her favorite character was a must for the evening. She had a tough time deciding, but ultimately went with Anna from Frozen.

Does it get any cuter!?!?!?  She was so excited to be dressed up. If I had some sort of adult size princess costume you know I would have dressed up...luckily for my husband, I did not.

We went to Columbus early and took Ellie to dinner at one of our favorite places downtown, Dirty Frank's Hot Dog Palace.


I don't eat meat so the fact that they offer veggie dogs and vegetarian "chili" sauce is so amazing!!!  Ellie got the vegetarian "Octodog"  which is a hotdog cut to resemble an octopus  with a side of mac n cheese.  It was cute, but the veggie dog is way better on a bun and covered with tons of toppings...alone it was not awesome!


After eating we realized we still had some time to kill before the big show so we parked close to the arena and walked over to The North Market and treated ourselves to some Jeni's Ice Cream...YUM!  If you haven't been to The North Market it is so worth checking out! (obviously, so is Jeni's Ice Cream!) 


After ice cream it was time to make our way to the show!  There is just a short walk form The North Market to the arena and because it was chilly outside little lady got a ride from daddy across the bridge and to the Disney princesses!


We had made sure to get pretty close seats so she could see and they ended up being perfect!  It was so fun to watch her take it all in and applaud after each performance.  She really loved the 7 dwarfs and Frozen.  Somehow she was so intrigued by the performance that she completely ignored all of the seriously over priced food and toys...thank goodness!!!!



I actually ended up bringing our own super cheap glow stick and that was good enough for her! 


We had such a good time and I would recommend this show to anyone with a little girl, or boy (although this particular one was princess heavy).  My only negative was the over priced crap but I guess the tickets weren't too expensive so they have to make more money somehow...
