Disney on Acid
We began be eating in that restaurant that looks down on the skydome. Jadzia didn't come with, so there were no worries about high chairs and strollers. The adults were my parents and me. The kids were William and my nephew Hunter. Try the pumpkin ravioli. And my Dad's burger looked nice too.
The boys were very good. Most likely because my mom planned ahead and brought activity books, glow sticks and M&Ms to keep them occupied. And of course at intermission, Mom bought Hunter a Buzz Lightyear, and William a ridiculous twenty-two-dollar light-up twirly-whirl thingie.
William loved everything, even the parking garage. "I've never been here before," he said as we walked through the grey dungeon. He also liked staring up at the CN tower, eating Kraft Dinner at the restaurant, and using the automatic soap dispenser in the washroom. The Ice Show was pretty cool too.
My favourite part was the rendition of "The Sorceror's Apprentice" in which all the skaters were dressed as giant blacklight-activated brooms. I also liked the bit where a bunch of random Disney villains went trick-or-treating at Jack Skellington's house. Each bit was as fun, high energy, and nonsensical as the last.
