Review of Disney On Ice Presents: Let's Celebrate

On Friday the 24th we had the opportunity to go see Disney on Ice Presents: Let's Celebrate.  The weather was terrible that day, and we actually debated not going, but at the last minute decided we still would go, and I'm really glad we did! 

Venue:  The show was at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, which for us is way more convenient than seeing a show at the UC.  We liked that we only had to drive to Rosemont and there was minimal traffic for us!

Tickets & Parking.  Dave had already told me that picking up tickets from Allstate kind of stinks.  He was right.  Their will-call is a separate building across the street.  Inside it was kind of chaotic.  People kept walking in off the street and right up to a window while I was still waiting in line.  Guess I should have moved around.  I did get the tickets easily though, but then I had to walk back to where Dave was waiting for me.  There isn't really anywhere to park near will call, so I had to gather the kids and carry both of them inside and wait on Dave.  That part was lame, but parking was free, so that was cool. 

Inside:  Once Dave got inside we were able to get right to our seats.  We had 3 seats, and Isla sat on my lap... although Ian mostly sat on Dave's lap.  There are tons of overpriced things for sale inside, from tshirts, to pictures "with" the cast members, which is to be expected at any kids show.  Luckily, Ian doesn't really bug us about that kind of stuff, so we were able to avoid it!  We had also had a snack in the car and drinks, so we avoided that too! 

The Show:  The show, Disney On Ice Presents: Let's Celebrate was basically about different celebrations- The Merry Un-Birthday from Alice & Wonderland, Halloween with Jack Skellington and Disney villains, Christmas with Minnie & Mickey.  Just like last time, Ian was a little scared at first in the beginning, I think because he mostly didn't know what to expect.  By the end though he was smiling and laughing.  We all agreed that our favorite part was Halloween with Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas - Ian loves that movie.  The show started at 7:30 and we were in our car by 9:15 and that was after staying a little extra afterwards to see some "behind the scenes" stuff.  There is a short intermission in the middle. 

Leaving the venue:  We actually got out and to our car pretty easily.  It had snowed during the show and the wind was whipping and it was freezing outside, so getting to our car as quickly as possible was a bonus.  We even got our of the lot relatively quick! 

So overall we had a great time and it didn't cost us anything*!  Here are the pics!
