Disney on Ice: Dare to Dream (rescheduled performance)

I am a Feld Entertainment Blogger Ambassador, and in exchange for my time and efforts in attending shows and reporting my opinion within this blog, as well as keeping you advised of the latest discount offers, Feld Entertainment has provided me with complimentary tickets to Feld shows and other exclusive opportunities

We we’re eager for the upcoming (rescheduled) performance of Disney on Ice Dare to Dream produced by Feld Entertainment at the Amway Center. After our dishearted performance cancellation in September due to hurricane Irma; we were beyond delighted to see the second perfomance this past Saturday.

The Moana shirts lay upon the bed for an early rise with the children. It was a rush in the morning to the Amway Center, yet again rain was coming. The children singing in the backseat “We’re going to Disney” after the corrections that I keep informing the girls.. “We’re heading the where mommy watched the basketball game, the Princesses will be on ice skates.” Their eyes widened with curiosity though we’ve seen many Feld Entertainment performances, they were still unsure of what we would be watching. Some of our favorite Princesses would be attending I told them, as Isabella kept naming all the Princesses in hopes they would all be attending.

As we received our tickets from the office box there were a few men and women outside selling knock off Disney merchandise. Quickly I made sure the kids knew there was merchandise and a show about to begin. We went up to the first level, grabbing some beverages Elleanna’s eye caught the merchandise being sold. Stuffed animals, dolls, diary’s and of course the light up wands the girls were every which way. Isabella picked out a diary with Elsa that came with an Anna pen and Elleanna found a Moana light up wand that spun.

The walk down the stairs was filled with laughter, smiles and screams of excitement. We found our seats immediately knowing the show was only minutes away. As the concession members walked around with popcorn, Icee’s and cotton candy the girls became obsessed with the Icee cups. Purple and white the plastic cups were beautifully designed and have become their favorite cups for dinner beverages.

The lights dimmed and a young girl skated out.. The crowd roaring with excitement Disney on Ice Dare to Dream has begun!

Some of the Disney classics began the thrilling performance… From Goofy, Mickey, Donald and Minnie.

 

The brilliant Belle was first…

Put our service to the test
Tie your napkin ’round your neck, cherie
And we’ll provide the rest
Soup du jour, hot hors d’oeuvres
Why, we only live to serve
Try the grey stuff, it’s delicious
Don’t believe me, ask the dishes”

Your rainbow will come smiling through
No matter how your heart is grieving
If you keep on believing
The dream that you wish will come true.”

“ I’m malicious, mean and scary
My sneer could curdle dairy
And violence-wise, my hands are not the cleanest
But despite my evil look
And my temper, and my hook
I’ve always yearned to be a concert pianist
Can’tcha see me on the stage performin’ Mozart?
Tickling the ivories ’til they gleam?
Yep, I’d rather be called deadly
For my killer show-tune medley
Thank you!
‘Cause way down deep inside
I’ve got a dream”

– I’ve got a dream from Disney’s Tangled

“A drink in my hand My snow up against the burning sand Prob’ly getting gorgeously tanned In summer I’ll finally see a summer breeze Blow away a winter storm And find out what happens to solid water When it gets warm” – Summer time from Disney’s Frozen

“I can lead with pride, I can make us strong
I’ll be satisfied if I play along
But the voice inside sings a different song
What is wrong with me?
See the light as it shines on the sea? It’s blinding
But no one knows, how deep it goes
And it seems like it’s calling out to me, so come find me
And let me know, what’s beyond that line, will I cross that line?”

– How far I’ll go Disney’s Moana

 

Until next time Disney on Ice we’ve been swept away with the waves of fun with Dare to Dream.

Are you ready for war?:Hard Knocks Pointe Orlando

Our newest adventure brought out the Tomb Raider in me. I was jumping, rolling and hiding under tables; this time I wasn’t hiding from the children but ready to pounce and attack the rival team. I felt like I was special forces on a mission or maybe even a cop. None the less I was into the laser tag and could see myself mission after mission all day!

We entered Hard Knocks laser tag with smiling faces greeting us with a welcoming atmosphere. As you take a look around the building there were two separate areas to sit with a beverage-snack stand to reenergize us.

Little did I know the televisions I believed were for decoration would come to haunt me with the taunting of my fallen comrade and rival team. When introduced to our mission we were given a locker for our valuables (VERY PLEASED! I even had my own code and yes I almost locked the code in the locker haha.) As well as we signed wavers on the computer before watching televisions located near the lockers. We were given a break down of what to expect and what kind of weapons we would be able to use.

It was time to gear up!

Though we arrived at opening this gave an advantage. The three of us (myself, Geraldo and our friend Manny) were alone, no rivals currently giving us the time to learn the surroundings. And also chase one another throughout the map… I admit I was out of breath giving me the mindset that I need some more laser tag to get me in shape. A few rough patches throughout our first mission from my failed sliding across the floor to Manny almost getting hit in the head with a “gun”. The many times I hid or turned a corner and scared myself with the monitoring worker right there which triggered my giggling then giving away my position. Fail.

After a short break for food downstairs of Pointe Orlando we were back at Hard Knocks, this time opening the doors to a full house! Excitement ran through me, I was ready to go. Packing the locker full of our items we set out to listen to the rules and be split into teams. This time we were together as a group… Well that would help to a certain extent. Because I knew the three out of seven members on the team which will later get me “killed”. After a few rounds with a large family, that had us cracking up and finally had me feeling as if I wasn’t the only confused solider!

Our last round I may have had a focus.. As I hid behind filing cabinets and under desks, popping up and crouching in the darkness the rival team had no idea what was coming. I was going crazy, firing away at the rival team reloading and attacking! I watched as my team member “Manny” was taken out as well as Geraldo (Rival team). I didn’t know who was left on his side but I had to win! As 7 Vs 7 came down to 4 vs 2…. And then there was one which we may have chased down and cornered. As I exited the barracks leaving behind my vest and weapon Geraldo and Manny began to laugh and act as if they were playing still. I didn’t understand why.. Until after all their laughter was finished I got the story. I was on the televisions as they watched the Laura Croft in me come out! I so wish they had a tape of that (yes I am very proud of my solider like skills haha).

As we watched Hard Knocks fill up all I could imagine was coming with a group of friends. I couldn’t explain a better indoor activity great for rainy or sunny days for pre-teen to adults to enjoy whether as a family, friend or date. Yes I said date there’s more than movies, dinners and coffee! So lets set out to find these new date nights, new activities to laugh and keep moving to.
