Bring it, Disney

And that you did.  

One of the fantastic perks of being a Mom Squad blogger for iFamilyKC is that from time to time, we get to hit up super fun, kid friendly events here in Kansas City...for free.  A couple weeks ago we were given tickets to see Disney on Ice at the Sprint Center.  

I will admit, I typically enter the Sprint Center after enjoying several a few libations at Power & Light across the street.  This go around we traded beer for cotton candy & dancing mermaids. 

And I wouldn't have it any other way.

I have to say, I'm not sure who enjoyed the show more. 
My 7 month old daughter or my 30 year old husband.

Lara goes to bed at 7:00 pm most nights, so we chose to go to the 10:00 am show on Friday morning. Surprisingly, it was quite busy!  As every Kansas Citian knows, parking downtown just sucks.  When attending any downtown events, give yourself 30-45 minutes lead time.  We arrived around 9:30 and barely had enough time to get parked and to our seats for showtime.  

There was an entire empty section near where our seats were, so about 20 minutes into the show, we decided to move over to the empty area.  I know all the moms out there can commiserate; between Lara, the diaper bag & the camera bag, we needed an entire aisle for ourselves!  

I remember going to Disney on Ice in the past, but what I didn't remember is that these ice skaters are ON POINT.

They didn't just dance around on the ice, they did lifts....

And they covered the ice with full blown, synchronized dances!

And can we talk about the special effects?
The smoke.  The lights.  The MASSIVE Ursula character.

I have to admit, their Ursula put my Ursula costume to shame...  


This Peter Pan skit was probably my favorite.  I mean, the kids literally flew across the auditorium.  You can't beat that!

From The Little Mermaid to the Lion King to Peter seven months old, she loved it all! 

To all the families out there contemplating snatching up tickets to the next Disney on Ice show here in Kansas City...
Do it.

And thank me later.
