Wow! I don’t even know where to start with this. Disney on Ice was just magical. I was never a massive Disney fan but did enjoy their movies before Pudding came along but something totally weird has happened to me since Pudding came to live with us. I’ve changed, I’m more emotional, things that never bothered me before now bothers me. I’m still a grumpy old bastard which will never change.
We were gifted some tickets for Disney on Ice from the lovely people at Instinct PR. We haven’t been asked to blog about this event, just share some stories on Instagram which we did.
I feel like writing a blog post about Sunday because it was yet another ‘first’ for us as a family and we believe another ‘first’ for Pudding.
We weren’t sure how he would be, sitting still for 2 hours and watching the show. Well, we had nothing to worry about.
We started the day running late – typical. We all bundled into the car with Auntie Kez in the back with Pudding. The car journey was about 1 hour 20 minutes. We are lucky with Pudding with car journeys, he just takes it in his stride and loves going through tunnels.
We finally get to Wembley and park in the Yellow Car Park. I see the sign for the charge on event days. TWENTY FUCKING POUNDS!!! Don’t even get me started.
We had to collect the tickets from the box office. All my experiences with box offices have been a nightmare with long arse queues and issues. We were already running late so I wasn’t looking forward to this.
We get to the box office, no queue, no issues and got the tickets within 2 seconds. LOVELY
The queuing into Wembley Area was fast and smooth, no waiting, no bullshit. We make out way to our seats – Block D, Row 3.
It’s Show Time
Pudding sat in between Darran and I and could just about see over the girl in fronts head. He seemed happy enough. I’m looking around, taking it all in and then turn to Pudding who somehow had a massive bucket of popcorn on his lap. He’s only just nicked it off the lovely lady behind us lol.
We kept offering it back to her but she insisted that it’s Puddings. Bless her!
The show started with Mickey, Minni, Goofy and Donald introducing ‘Disney on Ice: 100 Years of Magic’.
They packed a lot of Disney from the years into the 2 hours it was on. After the main gang, we had Pinocchio, Nemo, Marlin, Dory and Crush the turtle. Then it was onto Beauty and the Beast, Sleeping Beauty, Snow-white (no dwarfs) and Aladin.
Frozen got the most ice time because it’s Frozen that’s why! It was amazing, we loved it. There was real snow too and Olaf made an appearance 🙂
We then had Mulan and the show finished with The Lion King.
All in all, all 4 of us had an amazing time and would recommend EVERYONE to go and see Disney on Ice at least once in your life.
