Disney on Ice

Bela had a blast as we watched Disney on Ice at Araneta Coliseum. The last time we watched a show (The Dora the Explorer show at Aliw Theater), Bela got scared and since then, every time we watched a show, she will rather go out than stay inside the theater.

So when I told Howell that there will be a Disney on Ice show, Howell is really not up to watching it as he thought that Bela might just get scared again. I know that Joaqui of Peachy loves Mickey Mouse and so I had the idea of watching the show with them so Bela has a kid companion in watching which might help her overcome her fears. We also asked the other MBAP mommies if they want to watch with us. We ended up watching the show with Peachy and Joaqui and Jacqui and Sam (look at Jacqui. She just gave birth a few months ago and she is already back to her pre-pregnancy weight. I wish I can find a quick weight loss program that combines eating nutritious foods, exercise and weight loss products to help me loose weight after I give birth).

We met up with Peachy and Joaqui at the food court of Gateway Mall as it is still early. We went inside Araneta around 5:30 PM (show starts at 6 PM) and Bela and Joaqui had a chance to buy a souvenir from the souvenir shop. Bela got the Stitch doll and Joaqui got the Incredibles toy figure. Jacqui and Sam arrived a few minutes before the show.

We got the best seats in the house – front seats facing the ice skating rink which is really a dream come true for the kids as they we’re able to watch their favorite Disney characters up close. Bela kept on running to follow the characters everywhere they went. There was even one character that joined the audience and the kids we’re able to have a short interaction with him.

Bela just loved the show and you can really see the excitement in her face while watching it. She even asked me if we can watch it again the next day. Every penny that Howell spent for our tickets was all worth it.
