disney on ice, ice baby

in the handful of days between christmas and new year's, we managed to squeeze in a matinee of disney on ice - the toy story 3 edition  oh, yes.

the show was playing at three different venues - staples center in l.a., honda center in anaheim, and citizens business bank arena in ontario - and since the latter was closest to us, that's where we went.

the hub wasn't thrilled that we had the cheap seats - but hey, they were only $16 plus ticketbastard fees per person. and it turned out that CBB arena is rather small, which meant that we actually had a pretty decent view of the show.  the bean was super duper stoked.

the show opened with a few of her favorite friends:  mickey, minnie, donald, and pluto.

it was a pretty cute show, with bits and pieces of all three toy story movies played out on the ice. 

slinky dog!

the potato heads!

green army men galore.

adorable glow-in-the-dark aliens.

she was captivated.

the grand finale.  bye bye, woody, buzz and friends!

we managed to escape the huge, colorful concession stands offering everything from $10 cups to $25 stuffed animals and more.

despite the sheer corniness of even the idea of "disney on ice," it was actually really fun, especially since the bean is such a toy story fanatic.  she alternated between watching the show with giant eyes and hopping off of her seat to dance along.  it was adorable.  i'm so glad we took her.

and now, my current project:  putting together a costume for her to wear to the fresh beat band concert next month.  and i have a major decision to make:  do i make myself a costume to match hers, or should i dress up as the other girl in the band?

either way, it's going to be awesome!


  1. How fun!

    And I think you should go as Twist to the FBB concert. ;)

  2. Let me know if you want to try out skating lessons. There are a couple rinks in your area I could point you to.


i heart comments. i wan-na hear what you have to say.
um, i think.

squeezing in all the sightseeing

this was our NYC home for a whole week: it was one of only a few hotels that i could find that offered two beds in a room rather than, say, ...
