This was Gabrielle's 2nd year to attend Disney on Ice at the Sprint Center. This was MY 1st time experiencing the joys of the magic that happens on ice alongside her. I purchased tickets months early for myself, Gabrielle & Mema to see Disney on Ice - Worlds of Fantasy on opening night. (We were accompanied by our good friends the Anderson crew). I loved the look of excitement on Gabi's face when I finally revealed to her what the evenings plans were - see top left photo with her hands on knees and BIG cheesy smile!
Mickey, Minnie & gang opened the show, followed by CARS, The Little Mermaid, Lion King and Tinkerbell. We were fortunate to enjoy the Disney Princess Preshow which featured the newest princess Tiana from The Princess and the Frog (she was breathtaking, a natural beauty as seen in the photo below) as well as Cinderella. They had all the beautiful ball gowns on display for the children to view. Gabrielle's favorite was Belle's gown from Beauty and the Beast.
My only regret was not having the rest of the family with us. Dawson would have been in awe over Mickey and the whole CARS segment. Until next year he can enjoy the dozens of photos I snapped.
