Disney on Ice

I am a bad mom. I booked tickets to Disney on Ice without really reading about the show. After all, how scary can Disney on Ice - Disneyland be? We all know that Morgan is super-sensitive when it comes to movies and such, but Disneyland? What could that be an issue? Oh, You would be surprised.

First, a few days before the show, I find out it's hosted by the Incredibles. Oh no. Strike one. Mark let Morgan watch this movie when she was just around two years old. The scene where the the baby is set of fire scarred her for life. I have never seen the movie, but to this day she has fear in her voice when she talks about the "hot baby".

Then I find out the rides that they recreate at the show are Pirates of the Caribbean and the Haunted Mansion. Strike two. She would not get near these rides when we were in Disneyland. She deemed them way too scary.

I figure that at least there won't be any bad guys in the movie. Strike three. Syndrome, in his giant metal octopus looking costume, kidnaps Micky and Minnie and the Incredibles must save them.

All things considered, she did well. She hung in there for a long time. She plugged her ears during the Haunted Mansion, but still watched the show. She got very nervous and buried her head when the Pirates shot off the canon. But still she watched. The straw that broke the camels back came at the end, where Syndrome's army came out onto the ice. Then it was game over. With a screeching scream and a "get me out of here" we were running out the door. There in the hall, I joined a surprisingly large amount of parents and kids who also seemed to be riding out the scary part. She was willing to go back in once the fight scene was over and everything was right in the world again.

The following picture was taken right after the show. You can practically see the joy radiating on her face. At least Kaitlynn and Keaghan thoroughly enjoyed the show.

Poor Morgan. I am so sorry she had to leave, but I guess it was best that she saw the other people too because she did go and finish. Baby steps right.

LOO, that's too funny. She did better than Tyler. The Little Mermaid MUSIC was enough to send him for the door, for fear that Ursula MIGHT show up. Then there were fireworks and he was DONE!
