DISNEY ON ICE: The Biggest Treasure

Click here for 30% off Discount Codes!

Disney animated films represent a memorable, magical rite of passage!  Most of us remember our first favorite Disney character that leaped from the screen, welcoming us into their world – mine was Cinderella.*  As we grew, we became more complex characters, our crowds changed and new favorites joined our immediate Disney family!

Tiana & Naveen

The Princess and the Frog’s Tiana and Naveen

As with every family gathering, we enjoy our time immensely with our Disney family – build fond memories – but then return to our less magical daily routine.  While one may visit characters at their theme park homes, or rewind and re-live the films at our home, time with our Disney family remains limited.  Disney realizes that most of us do not share fences with a Disney theme park, so they’ve packed up their treasure trove of characters and are gliding into your home town!

Finale

Disney’s Treasure Trove of memorable, magical characters

Disney chose their 50 most memorable characters from eight classic animated films to share their stories through figure skating in Feld Entertainment’s Disney On Ice presents Treasure Trove – presented by YoKids!  By adding the elegance and athleticism of ice skating, the levels of romance, suspense, comedy and antics increase by leaps and bounds! The films span the 50-year legacy that Walt Disney started!  Every guest will reunite with one of their favorites!

Set sail with Peter Pan, sassy Tinker Bell and cantankerous Captain Hook & his pirate crew! Trek the wilds of Africa with Simba, Nala, Pumbaa and Timon to discover the true meaning of the ‘Circle of Life.’ Tick-Tock! Tick-Tock! Set a playdate with Woody and Buzz Lightyear – the toys are back in town!

As with anything that Disney touches, the performance sets the gold standard!  This breathtakingly magical experience creates unforgettable memories for you and your family to treasure!

*While I enjoyed the Princess mind-set for a while, what I really loved about Cinderella was her resilience and creativity on how to get to the ball, her dignity in doing a job well-done and grace when facing down her obnoxious step-sisters! #DisneyStrong

SET SAIL FOR THE LA BOAT SHOW!

Close your eyes, imagine yourself at the helm, captaining your ship. Wind blowing your hair, sun warming your face with the course set for the horizon!  For once, I’m not speaking hypothetically, I’m talking about real boats!  What’d your boat look like? A sailboat, a motorboat? A yacht with champagne?

Boating whisks us away, instantly freeing us from our land-dwelling ways, promising adventure, relaxation, nature, and romance. This form of travel rebuffs the usual constraint of staying within the lines and muffles the visual and auditory clutter of our neighborhoods.  The tension melts away with each wave. Realizing how small we are resting on the water’s surface resets our center.

I’m blessed with a marina view from my office. Every now and then we’ll see the tall masts of some super-huge luxury vessel, wonder who owns it and wish we could see it up close.

I’m so excited that Progressive offered me tickets to the show. I LOVE shows like this so I can submerse myself in all things nautical!
