The kids were super excited to get a chance to ice skate for the first time. For an additional fee, guests are invited to take a spin around the ice with our without their adorable helper companions (cute pandas or penguins).
In previous years, my littles had such a great time, that we’re so excited to attend Chill at the Queen Mary this year. They’re so excited to ice skate, fly down Matterhorn Mountain and check out the new ice bumper cars and trikes.
Tip for ice skating: be sure to bring LONG socks. My princess ended up with a skinned up ankle a few years ago because the skate was rubbing against skin. Sometimes the pain is worth it – she absolutely refused to get off the ice until SHE was ready.
The perfect picture opportunity – having the kids climb up on the giant rocking horse. I recall my hubby getting up there with the kiddos last year. This year they were big enough to do it themselves (they are growing up way to fast!)
