We had the good fortune to be invited to Disney on Ice for Aberdeen, where it’s running until the 11th December, so if you want to see it, you better get your skates on.. See what I did there…..
As luck wouldn’t have it, we ended up being late for the pre-show, after I scratched my car. Well, I wouldn’t call it a scratch, as I pulled off a side skirt on a friends fence and scratched two side panels. I also ended up doing my back in, by pulling the fence away to stop more damage while I reversed, but at least it wasn’t until the next day when I really felt the burn.
After a horrendously long drive time wise, we ended up in rush hour traffic and missed the meet and greet we’d been invited to, which couldn’t be helped, but I did manage to snaffle the Princesses on the way from the meet and greet room, so bagged a picture for one of the boys to show their nephews.
I’m ashamed to say that it’s my first ever Disney on Ice show. It’s one of those things I kept meaning to get to, but somehow never did. I won’t make that mistake again. I’m going to be finding every excuse under the sun to take my nephews with me next time it comes around.
The skating was amazing, and the intricacy of the steps phenomenal. Despite having a car and friends fence to fix, I’m glad we made it in time. At one point, I worried we wouldn’t get there at all.
The favourite part, by the reaction of most of the kids, seemed to be when the Trolls came out. I have no idea why ghoulies and ghosties and all things trollish please children of most ages, but they do.
It’s the full story, live on ice. And it’s not just for the girls.
There were groups of adults, plenty teens, and a fair few boys sitting around where we were. Not to mention the two Aberdeen footballers beside us, who middler kept checking up on. I’ve no idea who they were, but the kids did.

On the way out, I heard someone say that it was “stunning.” She was right. It really is.
