If you have been following along the past few months you know that January was a very Disney month for Team Tizzel. We had Disney World's Marathon Weekend followed by Disneyland's Tinker Bell Half Marathon. A few days after landing back home from California we went to see Disney on Ice "Rocking' Ever After" at The Allstate Arena in Rosemont, IL.
This was also a big merchandising opportunity. Tables were setup all along the arena lobby and there were lots of walk-around vendors. Disney park merchandise is lower priced than items sold here, but these items came with a 2-year warranty.
Overall we thought the show was good. Dave remained engaged the whole time, mainly because someone wiped out the first minute so there was potential for more. There were a lot more skaters in the show than we imagined. We thought that some of the princess parts were played by one skater, but we turned out to be wrong. Each story had their own male/female lead skater. The one scary thing about ice-side had to do with the other audience members' kids. Folks next to us we're not keeping their kids still and there were several times the kids were one step away from being on the ice. The usher gave us a look at first, but we were quick to point out those were not our children.
Here's a few minutes of video. We have Holly doing an intro, a few seconds of the opening, and a few minutes of the grand finale! Enjoy.....
