I've never been to a Disney on Ice show but all I have ever heard from parents who have gone to one is how magically they are. I think as parents we completely forget that our children, especially the preschoolers, see their favorite cartoon characters as if they are real. In a child's imagination anything is possible and Nemo really is swimming free around the ocean.
I can remember my first visit to Disney World. There is just something overwhelming about seeing your favorite Disney characters in person. Watching the parade and seeing all my favorite princesses parade past me brought all the magic of the movies back all at once. I almost hate to admit that I was probably 12 years old at the time, but seriously I still can remember how I felt!
Who ever said Disney on Ice was just about princesses or girls? I'm really considering buying tickets for Connor to see the Finding Nemo show thats upcoming, it would be about an hour drive to go see it in Birmingham but just to see that little face light up when he realizes "his Nemo" is right there in front of him.
