Today we had a family adventure in the big city, where we saw Disney On Ice Presents: Dare To Dream at the Rogers Centre - courtesy of Disney Junior Canada.
If your kids are Disney Princess lovers like mine, they won't be disappointed by these on-ice musical retellings of Snow White, Cinderella, Rapunzel and more.
Here's how Disney describes Dare To Dream:

When we first announced the surprise outing to the girls, my husband thought our nine-year-old was a bit less authentic in her joy than her younger sister (as she is starting to outgrow the princess phase) but as soon as the lights came up at the end she turned to me and said, "Well, that was fantastic!" Her sister's assessment: "That was so awesome!"
While I was disappointed not to see my favourite princess highlighted (Belle, of course: a brunette, French bookworm and Daddy's girl), my older daughter and her seven-year-old sister both picked Rapunzel as their highlight of the show.
Dare To Dream runs through December 27th in Toronto (I hope my four blog winners have fun with their guests on closing day!), and Disney On Ice can be seen in 2016 in Winnipeg, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec, London and Hamilton.
Thanks again to Disney Junior Canada for giving us this opportunity!
