Can Buzz and Woody Ice Skate?

Yes, indeed!

Well, Woody is better at it than Buzz, but that doesn't matter.

A couple of weekends ago, Jace, Cohen and I headed to Baton Rouge to see Disney's production of Toy Story on Ice.

Here are my boys are the way to the show...at this point I don't think we had told Cohen yet where we were going. It was a total surprise to him (mostly so that he would not ask every day when we were going to see Buzz and Woody).


Once inside the building, the vendors are setup ready to attack at any moment. We gave in and got Cohen one toy...a spinning, light up Woody.


So to answer the question, yes, Woody, Buzz, and all their friends can actually ice skate. It was pretty impressive to see some of the bigger characters on the ice.



Buzz flew in...exactly how you would expect a space ranger to enter.


Just before the show started, we got Cohen popcorn and cotton candy. The cotton candy came with a very cool alien hat.



Cohen REALLY enjoyed the popcorn. To be perfectly honest, he enjoyed that more than the show. How do I know this? He's asked for more popcorn almost everyday since the show....he's yet to say anything about Buzz and Woody.





I think he was pretty happy!



And, of course, we all had to take turns wearing the alien hat.  (In this picture you see that Cohen is holding a piece of the cotton candy. Cohen did not love the cotton candy. He really wanted nothing to do with it, until he realized that Jace and I ate all of it except this one small, tiny bite. THEN he decided he wanted cotton candy...so we gave it to him. He held it for about 5 minutes, until he was so super sticky, then we convinced him to just lick it. So he did. Oh it was such a mess!! Good thing the folks at Disney on Ice were thinking ahead...and they gave us two wet-wipes in the bottom of the cotton candy bag...thank goodness!)



Overall, it was a ton of fun. I'm glad we did it. I think we may skip the next show and just order Cohen a large bucket of popcorn and watch a movie at home. He did great through the first half of the show, but the second half lost him. It was a lot of Barbie and at one point during the second half Cohen looked at me and said "Momma, I don't like Barbie." Got it buddy.
