A dream is a wish your heart makes

When I was a little girl my Mum used to take me to see Disney On Ice.  I loved going with her and my sisters and would secretly wish that one day I could be the children picked to ride on the ice.  It never happened but the dream is still very much alive.

My Mum accompanied the girls and I to Disney On Ice Worlds Of Enchantment last night.  I was nervous as I knew something the girls did not.  They were about to live a dream of mine, they were about to become the children who travelled on the boat with the Disney characters.  I was excited and listened to the safety briefing and what the girls needed to do.

I then told them the important news, The Little Mermaid needed help in her dance and she was looking for 2 good girls to help her.  They were in shock!

We had a chat that they would be sat in a boat as my eldest pointed out she did not know how to skate and had no ice skating shoes.  They then got very excited and the show began.

Minnie, Mickey, Donald and Goofy took us on a magical adventure visiting the Disney worlds.  The Green Army men were present to look after all of Andy's toys.

The girls waited patiently, listening for the familiar sounds of the Little Mermaid.  Then they heard it, they got excited and took their places in the boat. 

They were taken on a 4 minute magical journey over the ice.  They waved and smiled and just took everything in.  All the skaters around them, the bright colours and the music.  They were not phased at all,  I was so proud.  They came back from their magical adventure and had the biggest smiles on their faces.  Again Mummy, Again!  They loved it.

It was time for a short interval but the girls were just super excited and could not wait for the show to start again.  After the interval we were treated to a spectacular performance from Cars.  How they control the cars on the ice I shall never know, it was a real experience to be at the front and really gave you a different prospective on how cleverly choreographed everything has to be.

The girls had had the time of their lives and there could be only one way to finish.  

What a truly magical evening.  I made a wish when I was little and whilst I did not get to go in the boat myself, my children did.  To see their faces, to see the experience they got to have and to see the magic unfold right in front of their eyes, is a million times a better wish than I could ever have dreamt of.  That happiness and that excitement will stay with me forever.  True Disney magic.

We cannot wait to see Disney On Ice again when it returns to Sheffield Arena next Autumn with another brand new ice-spectacular.

This day I love a dream is a wish your heart makes.
