Toy Story 3 On Ice In Philly: Wonderful!
Toy Story 3 On Ice at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. The show runs through January 2 and we urge you not to miss it.
It's a great show for kids of all ages and fortunately we attended with two of the nicest kids we know.
But here's the truth: While it was heartening to see so many kids (and families) having a fun time, this is a show that you can enjoy with or without the kids.
The characters are wonderful. The themes are universal. The lighting, costumes are staging are impressive. And here's one of the best parts: The ice skating is marvelous.
Thanks to Disney, ice shows have moved well beyond the days of mere pageantry. Now, the show encompasses a story. And since it involves the classic toys from the Disney feature films, even the tiniest tots can relate to the characters and the story.
On top of all that, the folks at Philly's Wells Fargo Center (formerly the Wachovia) are so courteous, professional and helpful that it's a joy to visit this world class sports and entertainment facility. Bravo to Comcast Spectacor!
