I now want to travel to Disney World or watch every Disney movie ever produced or preferably watch every Disney movie possible en route to Disney World!
I was really impressed that skaters could do jumps and spins while wearing
costumes. My favorite costumes were the ones from Finding Nemo,
but I have no idea how they could do axels in a fish body!
Once I am finished with competitive skating and college, I hope to tour with Disney on Ice. I would love the opportunity for my skating to bring the magic of Disney alive, the chance to travel, and hopefully the opportunity to work on writing during the transit time.
After my pairs lesson this morning, I learned that I can skate with only one contact in. I lost a contact as soon as I got to the rink and didn't have a spare nor the time to go get a new one. So I did lifts, throws, spins, and death spirals only able to see out of my left (also my worse) eye. I don't know if skating or driving with only one contact was worse. Needless to say, I put a pair of spare contacts in my purse!
Before the show, I went to Shuga's Restaurant and had to take a photo because the presentation was adorable. That is vegan Italian Vegetable soup, bruschetta with brie and apples, and bruschetta with goat cheese and roasted red pepper. I thought the atmosphere, food, and decorations were all amazing. I'll definitely return!
I was inspired to create another list.
My Favorite Disney Princesses:
4) Megara (not an official princess, but can she count...please? I don't actually like Hercules that much, but I think she's awesome.)
Sorry for excluding you Snow White, Aurora, Jasmine, and Belle. I just don't really remember the first three stories all that well and I can't handle all kitchenware and candles coming to life in Beauty and the Beast. I had nightmares about talking clocks for months after watching it as a child. Things having faces that should not have faces seriously creeps me out. When I was learning how to tie my shoes, I often dreamt of my shoes coming to life and taunting me!
Do you have a favorite Disney princess? Have you ever been to Disney on Ice?
