Sometimes I really surprise myself by my reactions to things. It’s like there’s this whole other person in me who I barely know but who sometimes just takes over and gets her way. (And she’s pretty fabulous, so I’m cool with it.)
So yesterday, I was skimming through the daily free commuter newspaper that they give out at the seabus and I saw an ad for this:
I just bought tickets. And you know what? I am insanely excited. The giddy kind of excited. The bouncing in my chair kind of excited. (Comment from someone at work: “Huh. Disney on Ice is like drugs for you.”) I don’t know why. I mean, I was aware that this show existed, and I think I was intrigued by the idea. But it’s never been a life-long dream or anything. I think I only first heard of Disney on Ice a few years ago. And honestly, until I saw that ad yesterday, I didn’t realize how much I desperately, desperately wanted to go.
But I DO! Oh my god, I really really do. This is probably the most excited about something I’ve been since I booked my tickets to Spain. (And this was WAY cheaper than Spain.)
To be fair now, we are talking about the following:
- People dressed up as Disney characters
- And they’ll be figure skating
- To Disney music
It’s pretty much of the trifecta of awesome.
Anyway, that’s all for now. I think I’m going to go do a happy dance in the kitchen. Happy Saturday!

Have fun! Love Ursula! I’m 59, and my husband and I watch Little Mermaid every few months. So I kinda get your drift 😉
Really? I don’t think I’ve seen it in about 20 years. But back when I watched it, I watched it a lot, so I know all the songs.
Haha! My daughters, 28 and 31 respectively, still know all the dialogue and the songs! 😀
Stephanie, I totally get it! Disney is amazing no matter how old one gets. Have a great time and be sure to let us all know how it was. 🙂
It’s not until late November, but ok!
Don’t be ashamed–I love Disney! I’m not sure why I haven’t seen anything Disney on Ice, yet, but this post is really making me want to go!
I’m not ashamed. Mostly just laughing at myself, because I’m actually a person who rarely gets excited by things and it’s funny that I’m so excited by this.
Oh, no. Nonono. There will be WAY too many kids there. That sounds nightmarish. (Though I will DEFINITELY watch Disney movies at home.) 🙂
Pssh. That’s what blowtorches are for.
“People dressed up as Disney characters. And they’ll be figure skating. To Disney music.”
I don’t know, Stephanie. I try to be completely tolerant of everyone’s beliefs, political views, and lifestyle choices. But this is really pushing it.
I hope you have a great time. I’m sure you will. (But if I walk around all day with Part of Your World stuck in my head, I’m going to be really mad.)
Wait, I don’t even know that song. Is it from Mulan or something?
Just looked it up. Little Mermaid. Yeah, I should have known that. I know Disney is politically problematic on a lot of levels. I’m trying to keep my head in the sand on that for this event. Don’t judge.
