School is off to a start and most parents are looking for creative rewards to share with their children after a successful start to the new school year. My 4-year old has surprisingly done well with movies and is looking forward to his upcoming theater flick with “momma”. However, I like to sneak in something a little extra special each season. Our next extra special outing (starting at just $20 per ticket) will be going to see Mickey & Minnie Mouse journey through a repertoire of the greatest Disney characters on ice! Sekou is going to be overcome with amazement watching the brilliant performances of Moana (& Maui!), Belle (& the Beast!), Anna and Elsa, Rapunzel, Cinderella and so much more as Disney On Ice presents Dare to Dream is coming to EAGLEBANK AERNA from SEPTEMBER 29 – OCTOBER 8, 2017!
Sekou and I will be journeying along with Mickey and Minnie to uncover why no goal is too big when we find the strength to shape our own destiny! How cool is that? Disney never ceases to create amazing characters and those, paired with performances by Princess & hero classics, will encourage our children to dream of goals beyond their imagination and understand the possibility of meeting those goals! My son is full of wonder and I just can’t wait to see the impact of this show on his thinking. I can just see his beautiful brown eyes, wide with wonder, following his favorite Disney characters as they dance across the stage on ice.
In the meantime… I know we will be doing tons of character play with Mickey & friends (Beenie Babies!) and checking out Disney On Ice inspired recipes on their community page as we await the show’s arrival on September 29! After all, “waffle snow-gurt men” and “Minnie’s Sweetheart Egg Cups” are what the stars are fueling up on these days!
So, how will you prepare for the show? Grab your tickets, then head over and check out these amazingly creative recipes while we all wait in anticipation of Feld Entertainment’s Disney On Ice presents Dare to Dream!
Tickets start at $20 and can be purchased at all Ticketmaster outlets via charge and at the EagleBank Arena box office. For your convenience, you can also order via phone or www.ticketmaster.com.

Once again, thank you to all of the guests who were able to join us for this event.
