My mom and I took the kids to see Disney On Ice last week. I haven't been to anything like that since I was pretty young, so I had no expectations. Maddox wasn't too excited about going. He thought it would be all about princesses and such. When Marin saw the commercial on TV, would squeal with delight!
So...we go to Conseco. We get there and we have pretty excellent seats. We were on the lower level and were close enough to see all of the characters faces with clarity. As soon as the show started, Marin instantly clamped my hands over her eyes! She had a death grip on my hands and would not let me move. I was trying to talk her through it, pointing out her favorite characters. I eventually got my hands down, but she then put her own hands over eyes. I passed her to Mom, didn't help for a good 20 minutes. I told Mom to hold her arms down so they wouldn't cramp after being held up for the hour and a half show. That didn't work, but shortly after is when the princesses came out!!! She turned into a different child. My mom was shocked that she knew all of their names, even though she hasn't seen the less popular movies and the ones we don't have.
Maddox got into it during the villains part. He loved Jack Skellington!! He was entertained, but not mesmerized. As expected.
