So my Mom came to visit and we planned a surprise for Natalie.
We were taking to her Disney On Ice.
Those who have been reading me for awhile know that Natalie is a big fan of Disney Princesses. Her current favorite? Rapunzel.
I took a picture of her in front of the ice:
See that thing she’s holding? It’s a light up toy. It was $22.
*Rant Begin* I totally understand that companies need to make money. But. The stuff that Disney on Ice was selling was a rip off. They were selling plush dolls for $30, the same ones you can get at the Disney Store for $20. They were selling programs for the show for $20. Those should have been free. Or at least make one of cheaper quality for free. I mean, honestly. I would have liked a program but no, not forking over $20 for one. I probably shouldn’t have even gotten the light up toy but I figure we’ll use it again when we go to Disney World in June. *Rant End*
Here’s Natalie with my Mom munching on $12 cotton candy. At least it came with the crown that’s on Natalie’s head.
Oh, and here’s a photo of a random dude in a Pawn Stars shirt. I really wanted to ask him if he’s been in the store but I didn’t want to scare him.
So the show begins and Mickey and Minnie come out. Talk. And then Tiana from The Princess and the Frog comes out and does her story.
“I know her!” Natalie said. “I KNOW HER!”
She almost fell off her seat with excitement.
After Tiana it was Cinderella.
“I know her too!” Natalie shouted. “Hi Cinderella!”
She did not like the evil stepsisters. Especially when they ripped Cinderella’s dress.
“Santa is watching them,” Natalie informed me. “They won’t be getting any presents for Christmas.”
Yes folks, when she’s naughty, I tell her that Santa is watching and that if she carries on, she won’t get any presents.
“I like this one,” Natalie said as Cinderella and the Prince danced because the shoe fit her foot. “But where is Rapunzel?”
Rapunzel came next.
“My favorite!” Natalie said, clapping. “Pascal!”
Even Maximus the horse came out. Can you imagine having to be the butt part? I’d tell the person in front, “Please no farting.”
At the end Rapunzel and Flynn Rider danced:
“He loves her,” Natalie whispered.
Then they got married:
“Ugh, they gave Rapunzel long hair again. Why do they do that?” Natalie fumed. In the movie, Rapunzel still had her short hair when they got married.
All the princesses came out in the end and danced:
It was an awesome show. Natalie, naturally, loved it. She had mouthed along the words for Rapunzel, complete with arm movements.
“Is Rapunzel going back to Disney now so she can meet me when we go?” Natalie asked as we walked out.
“Er…yes,” I replied.
“The only thing was…where was Merida?” Natalie wanted to know.
Merida was the only missing princess.
“She was…riding horses with her mother,” I explained.
“Because her mother isn’t a bear anymore?” Natalie said happily.
“Yes. Because her mother isn’t a bear anymore.”
At home Natalie played with her $22 toy for awhile, so I suppose it was worth it.
We all had a fabulous time and now Natalie has decided she wants to learn how to skate on ice.
