disney on ice delivers!

once we managed to dig our van out of its snow-tomb, we were excited to get out of the house for  disney on ice toy story 3!

i have to admit that i was a little surprised at how low-key the ice looked. our last event (disney on ice: princesses) had a massive castle that throughout the show revolved to represent at least 4 different castles. this time, there was just a sheet hanging over the entrance to the ice. none of us were sure what to expect.


as soon as the show started, however, we were surprised at how well thought-out the entire program was. from skater andy showing us the stuffed dolls he was packing in the box, to the transition to the dolls themselves skating around the ice, our whole family was transfixed through the whole show. eventually the sheet dropped to reveal a stack of toys that provided a great backdrop throughout the whole program.

army guys parachuted in, buzz lightyear came out of the sky, woody rode a kite across the ice and even "the claw" made a couple of appearances. even before the show started, the kids and i were wondering just how they would have the kids come into the daycare room to play with the toys. let's just say, the production crew solved that problem with their usual finesse and cleverness, to our great delight.

we noticed the skaters fell more times than usual, which only seemed to disappoint the adults and zoe. it didn't spoil the show in any way, but it was a surprise, given the quality of skating we have seen in the past.

overall, we loved the show and can't wait to see what disney on ice comes up with for next year!

we received free tickets for the show from the feld family for the purpose of this review. regardless, the thoughts and opinions expressed here are purely my own.
