Disney On Ice • Pixar's Toy Story 3

I recenlty went to Disney On Ice Toy Story 3 and it was incredible!  The lights were bright, the characters were spot on, and the skaters were amazing and had me feeling like I could get out there on the ice with ease.  My friend and I brought some of our daughters and we were all glued to our seat the whole show through.  The show lasts about 2 hours and 15 minutes, with an intermission in between.  Be sure to get your face painted, get your cotton candy with either a Buzz hat or alien hat attached to the bag, and buy your Toy Story 3 gear.  

If you missed this show, be sure to go over to Disney On Ice online to find out when the next show is coming our way.  You can see more pictures from the show at my family blog, www.barnettes.com.
