My children are huge Disney fans – I mean how can you not be? This may be spurred by my love of all things Disney.
Even pre-children I could be found curled up on the sofa watching Dumbo and Aladdin, and of course having worked as a Nanny for 14 years I had a perfect excuse to do so.
You are most probably aware that the 100 Years of Magic: Disney On Ice tour is working it’s way around the UK currently.
During the shows you will find a whopping 65 Disney characters from 18 movies brought to live on stage to help celebrate 100 years of Disney magic.
You will find Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Donald Duck, Jiminy Cricket, Pinocchio and all the Disney Princesses gliding around on the ice in this wondrous and magically unforgettable show. You will be thrilled by exciting moments from The Lion King; Mulan; and Disney/Pixar’s Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, and Toy Story. I actually don’t know who has been more excited by the trailers for this – me or the kids – OK it’s me!! I admit it – I can’t help it – I want to go!
Sadly for an impatient me, the show doesn’t hit London until December 24th, however I have been looking around and doing a little research and it does show in Manchester and Birmingham throughout October and November, so with a little planning (and saving up) I think it could be possible to make a weekend of it as a special treat for Harry’s 2nd birthday perhaps. I’ve had a search around and found a few local hotels which would be an option for us if we were to venture further a field and in Manchester there is Crown Plaza Manchester Airport which is obviously very easy to find even for those with a limited sense of direction (I mean me there) or in Birmingham there is the Crown Plaza Birmingham NEC .
If my planning fails, which it usually does, and I’m unable to save up in time then London is very accessible to us and it may make a fantastic post Christmas treat instead – it could even be the kids main Christmas present this year. For those who would need to stay over in London though you can treat yourselves to a stay in the Holiday Inn London – Kensington Forum which is easily accessible to most of London’s main attractions so you can fit lots into your stay and make the most of London.

I wonder which character will excite my children the most? I’m currently thinking Emmy will be enthralled with all the Disney Princesses as after all she is a princess herself (of so she thinks) and Harry will be bowled over by Mickey and Minnie.
Who would you like to see the most?
