My boys are huge Disney fans as am I. Ever since I got my first Disney video for Christmas (wow I feel old) which was Beauty and the Beast, I have been a Disney fanatic and have tried to collect as many of the films as possible. Having young nieces and nephews made it perfect too as I would always be curled up sat watching kids films with them just as an excuse to see them. The Lion King was one of my favourites.
Thomas is obsessed with Frozen at the minute, I couldn't even count how many times he has watched it. He seems to go through fazes of watching different films. Toy Story, Mickey Mouse, Finding Nemo, we've seen them all.
At the moment, the 100 Years of Magic: Disney On Ice tour is working it's way around the UK. You can join the celebration as 65 of Disney's unforgettable characters come to life in Disney On Ice celebrates 100 Years of Magic.
Much loved characters such as Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Jiminy Cricket, Pinocchio and all the Disney Princesses will be there and you can follow exciting moments from The Lion King, Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, and Toy Story.
Unfortunately for me, and my kids obviously, they don't come to Leeds, but there are many other locations that I have been looking at to see if we can find the perfect excuse to go on a trip to see Disney.
The show visits Glasgow at the end of September which would fit in well with our yearly jaunt to see my Scottish relatives, just before my birthday. We don't drive and so lazy us usually hop on a quick flight to Glasgow (yes we are lazy) and then stay somewhere close by. Having a look around, staying somewhere like Holiday Inn Glasgow Airport would fit in well for visiting my relatives and for getting a bit of a Disney fix.
If we decided to stay close to home, the show is Manchester too. Making a weekend of it, staying at the Crowne Plaza Manchester Airport and then going on a shopping spree afterwards to treat the boys and our little bump would be great. Or we could even go to Birmingham during the school holidays and have a little break away in the Crowne Plaza Birmingham NEC and again there are lots of other things to be getting on with down there too after we've been to see Disney.
I really can't wait to get saving up and book our tickets to see the show. No only do you get to see your favourite characters, but a whole host of different Disney characters too from over the years. For me, I can't wait to see Simba and Aladdin, but I know that my boys will be blown away by Buzz Lightyear.
Whenever we go, I know that Timon and Pumbaa will keep us entertained singing Hakuna Matata and I'll even have to teach the little ones the words before we go. Yes I do know them all, I'm a big kid at heart.
