Skate Westgate

Cavalia Odysseo

We had the amazing chance to have VIP tickets to Odyssey Cavalia in Scottsdale this past week.

Disney on Ice at Talking Stick Resort Arena

We¬†received¬†complimentary passes for our show. All opinions are 100% my own. I had never been to a Disney on Ice show before, and neither had my littles. We decided to only bring Giggles and Munchie (almost four and 6 1/2) but not Dimples (almost 3) since he doesn’t sit very well! Talking Stick Resort Arena…
