Once early on in our relationship, Stewart made the mistake of saying that ice skating was not a real sport because you couldn't score points. After listening to my subsequent diatribe, he never made that same error again. For many years, I lived vicariously through Michelle Kwan. She was Asian-American, her parents were immigrants, and she was roughly the same age. I felt such immense pain for her when Tara Lipinski and then Sarah Hughes won Olympic gold. But I digress. I've always been entranced by figure skating and even took my first skating lessons while I was in college. I dated a guy mostly because he was a speed skater who went to the Olympic trials. These days I live vicariously through my good friend who, even now as we come into our middle age, skates on a champion synchronized skating team. All this to say, I love ice skating! So of course when I heard about Disney On Ice Worlds of Fantasy coming to LA, I thought it would be a great opportunity to introduce the boys to the wonders of skating. I hope to take my family and review the show on my blog. I figure if I take them to a show first, then they'll have more of an idea of what to do when I take them to real rink to try it out the next week.
You can watch Disney on Ice in the LA area from December 17th-January 10th at the following locations: Los Angeles, Anaheim, Ontario and Long Beach. I received a press release stating that the show will bring four magical Disney stories to the ice with characters from Disney/Pixar’s Cars and Disney’s Tinker Bell, The Lion King and The Little Mermaid. The Disney Princess Pre-Show taking place an hour before each show is free with ticket purchase and includes a special appearance by a Disney Princess.
