Call me a bad parent, but I haven't been one for taking the wee ones to go see many shows. When Thomas came to town, my parents bought tickets and I volunteered to stay home. Ditto with ummm another show I know my parents took them to.
However, earlier this year, I took the wee ones to go see Disney on Ice 100 Years of Magic. Ohhh the wee ones loved it. And I have to say that I had a blast, too. Best of all, they had a discount available with four tickets for $44. Now that, I couldn't pass up.
And Disney is back in Chicago. And they have a deal again. This time, they're here for Disney on Ice's "normal" show. They are going to have over 50 characters from sixteen Disney stories performing, including Tiana and Prince Naveen from The Princess and the Frog.
They are performing Jan. 20 – Feb. 7, 2010 in two different venues. January 20 – 31 they are at the United Center, and February 2 - 7 they will be at the Allstate Arena (which I'm sorry, I still need to point out that this will forever in my mind be The Horizon).
Any interest in attending? I thought so. You can again purchase 4 tickets for $44 for weekday shows (Monday through Thursday and Friday matinee) and get $4 off on the weekend shows (Friday night through Sunday). Simply input the code MOM in the MC Promotion box on www.ticketmaster.com.
And for those of you not in Chicago, they are touring elsewhere! You can still go see the Let's Celebrate! show in Little Rock, Columbus GA, Baton Rouge, New Orleans, Boston, Auburn Hills, St Louis, Toronto, Dallas, Fort Worth, Hidalgo TX, Houston, San Antonio, and Wichita Falls. And I have a feeling you're going to want to.
Even if you can't go, your kids will enjoy coloring this sheet. I'm afraid to show it to the wee ones until we go, as this is a surprise for them, but you can bet that Little Miss will be all over making this as "pretty" as she can!
