Here it is almost two weeks later and I still haven’t made a post about my awesome Valentine’s date!
My wife and I went out to eat at her favorite restaurant, Chevy’s. She likes the place a lot because they have really good tortilla chips and the family friendly atmosphere is very inviting.
After the wonderful dinner we used a birthday present I’d gotten for her back in November, tickets to Disney on Ice!
The opening act was a few ice-skating boomerang throwers.
Mickey came out along with all of his friends who wanted to throw a birthday party for somebody, but it wasn’t any of their birthdays!
The Mad Hatter came out along with Alice and suggested an Unbirthday party instead.
After the party Mickey stayed to clean everything up by putting on his wizard clothes and summoning a bunch of iceskating brooms.
The next celebration was Halloween (because Halloween is totally on Valentine’s Day in February).
After Halloween came Valentine’s Day. Finally!
Minnie was looking for her love, but couldn’t find him. All the Disney princes and princesses tried to help out by dancing around a fountain. Most of the traditional amazing ice skating moves were during this number. Lots of princes lifting princesses and dazzling spins on the ice.
In the end Mickey was inside the fountain that Disney royalty was dancing around. He came out and had a dance with Minnie.
After the Valentine’s Dance there was an intermission followed by Mickey’s fantastic travel the world second act! If you’ve been to Disneyland and seen the Magical Dot show, it’s almost the same thing.
Asia, Agrabah, all over Europe, New Orleans, and Hawaii!
Hawaii was the best of all. A man came out and sprayed some liquid onto the ice. Then the male lead from Lilo and Stitch came out with a fiery baton and lit the liquid (gasoline) on fire!
And then the show ended with the required big finale where all the characters came out to sing and make merry.
Pretty cool date! Definitely glad that we went.
