Frozen Fun Experience at Disney on Ice

This post was written in partnership with Feld Entertainment & Disney on Ice. We were provided with complimentary tickets for review. As always, opinions are 100% honest and my own.

Like most little girls, my girls are still obsessed with Elsa and Anna from Frozen.  They still dress up several times a week pretending to be the Ice Queen and Princess after the get home from school.  Last week, they had the opportunity to hang out with them during the Frozen Fun Experience (pre-show) at Disney on Ice...and on a school night! ;)

My girls were over the moon with excitement before we even arrived and they had more fun than I could have even imagined.  We were greeted at the door by Kristin, an Arendale resident who knows Elsa and Anna and she played the part perfectly.  She was sweet and helpful and kept our girls entertained with coloring and snowflake making before Elsa and Anna made their appearance.  I can't forget the yummy Mickey shaped snacks that were waiting for us too!  We all gobbled them up!

After having some crafting fun, Anna and Elsa made their appearance and that's were the fun really started!  We had a mini scavenger hunt to look for all of Olaf's body parts and once found, all the kids got to go up and put him back together.  Emma and Charlotte found one of his arms and were so excited!

Then they got to have story time and sing along to Let it Go (along with learning some dance moves).  Emma loved that she got chosen to hold one of the story boards while Elsa and Anna told us all about them.  I'm pretty sure that made her night, along with a lot of other things.

We finished off our Frozen Fun Experience by getting to talk to our favorite Queen and Princess and take a professional photo with them.  Feld Entertainment did a great job organizing this event and we loved it.  The girls were given a keepsake photo and a VIP lanyard to take home.  It was great!

The Frozen Fun Experience is an add-on to the Disney on Ice Show and the perfect way to start you night out with your kiddos.  It's fun for the entire family.  To find Disney on Ice tickets in your area along with a special VIP add-on purchase, you can click here.

Jingle Rails Exhibit at Eiteljorg Museum

If you're looking for something to do tomorrow (you know, since your kids are out of school for MLK Day), then the Eiteljorg Museum is the perfect spot to go to get out of your house and stay out of this crazy cold weather.

Tomorrow is also your last chance to get an incredible look at the Jingle Rails Exhibit at the Eiteljorg Museum.  My family and I had the opportunity to visit the museum last month and let me just say that this is something you don't want to miss BUT if you do, there is always next Christmas.

Jingle Rails: The Great Western Adventure is a G-scale model train wonderland containing nine working model trains that wind through a stunning miniature landscape. The exhibit features miniature versions of local treasures of downtown Indianapolis, including the Eiteljorg Museum, Monument Circle, Union Station and Lucas Oil Stadium. The trains then head through the national parks of the American West, passing legendary sites, including grand railway lodges, Northwest Coast Native villages, and wonders both natural and human-made—Mt. Rushmore, Grand Canyon, Yosemite Falls, Old Faithful, the Las Vegas Strip, Hoover Dam and much more.  Y'all that's nearly 1,200 feet of track!!  Did I mention that Old Faithful actually erupts?! What?!

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway and historic Spanish Colonial missions of the Southwest, including The Alamo are both new this year, absolutely amazing and my personal favorite.  The Speedway even has a working course with race cars whizzing around in circles.  My girls thought that was the coolest.

My pictures really do not do this exhibit justice and it is something I highly recommend seeing in person.  We even took our twins (there's plenty of room for strollers) and they enjoyed looked at all the moving trains and the Christmas Lights.

They even have a set up of the Indiana State Fair with a working Ferris Wheel.  It really is incredible and going to the Eiteljorg Museum over the holidays is definitely going to be a new tradition for our family each year.  You can learn more and purchase your tickets by clicking here.

We even had a family photo opp with a near-life-size train engine model, made of all-natural materials.  It was really cool and the girls could even go inside of it! So fun!  

Thank you Eiteljorg Museum and TheCityMoms for having us out over the holidays!

Jurassic World Live is Roar-tastic!

This post was written in partnership with Feld Entertainment & Jurassic World. We were provided with complimentary tickets for review. As always, opinions are 100% honest and my own.

Over the weekend, my dinosaur loving girls and I got to experience dinosaurs like we've never experienced before at Jurassic World Live!  We had an up close and personal view while sitting in the "dino pit" section and let me just say, it is worth it.  They still haven't stopped talking about the amazing show and both keep asking when we go back.

Before the show, we had the opportunity to meet some of the HUMAN characters and the girls loved getting to ask the scientists and the soldier questions about their favorite dinosaurs.  They were so friendly and so great with all the kids and Emma and Charlotte were on the edge of their seats watching them perform.  Jurassic World Live Tour is packed full of pulse-pounding stunts and action-packed fight sequences and truly is a live entertainment experience for the whole family complete with life-sized dinosaurs, heroes and villains.  Trust me, you'll be on the edge of your seat too!

Jurassic World Live features more than nine dinosaurs including the mighty T. Rex, Blue the Raptor, Triceratops, Pteranodons, Baby Stegosaurus and of course, our personal favorite, Jenny.  There's even some special little dinosaurs that join in, but I'll let that be a surprise for you.

My girls are 5 and 4 and this show was perfect for them.  However, the show features special effects, including strobe lights and a safe theatrical fog, along with the wonder and thrills that the Jurassic World brand is known for.  Not to mention, a lot of very load roaring dinosaurs.  So, I would just use your best judgement as a parent to determine if this would be a good show for your little ones. I will say that there was a part in the beginning that came out of nowhere for Charlotte and she literally jumped out of her seat screaming.  With that being said, she was so focused and loved every minute of it.  I think it was just a shock and unexpected for her, but not scary.

Overall, the girls and I gave this show two dinosaur hands up and would definitely recommend you checking it out. You can click here to find out more information about Jurassic World Live and to find tickets and a show near you! 

Your dinosaur obsessed kids will thank you and it would make a pretty great Christmas gift :)
