Disney on Ice: Princess Wishes and Cibo

A few weeks ago we went to see Disney On Ice: Princess Wishes at the US Airways Center in downtown Phoenix. The show was definitely Patty's idea...after multiple "hints" from her, I finally bought tickets a few weeks before the show.

I was one of the few males there. We were surrounded by moms (a few dads) and their daughters. Most of the girls were dressed as princesses (Cinderella, Snow White, etc.). Here's one of them (I love this picture):

There was tons of Disney stuff for sale...seemed like every 50 feet or so there was a stand selling stuff. Here's a shot of one of them:

The show was actually much better than I expected. It was an entertaining show and well worth the price paid (~$24pp).

After the show, we decided to grab a late night snack. BTW, the show ended at 9:30pm...we are never out this late!

I've been wanting to try Cibo for a long time so we went there.

We ordered the following:
  • Margherita (tomato sauce, mozzarella and fresh basil - $9)
  • Thomas Kemper Root Beer ($2)
  • Fresca (a warm crepe filled with vanilla ice cream and fresh fruit, topped with more fresh fruit and whipped cream - $8)
  • Lavender Earl Grey ($2)
No pics as it was too dark...

The pizza came out about five minutes after we ordered it. It was great. I had originally planned to eat only a slice or two (and save room for dessert) but we ended up finishing the whole thing.

For dessert we tried the Fresca. It was massive - loaded w/ fruit, ice cream and whipped cream...very tasty. I thought it was very good. The only negative was that the crepe was a bit on the thin side so it kind of got lost among the other items.

The tea was also good. The lavender and Earl Grey was a really nice combination.

I thought the food was great and the prices were very reasonable. We'll be back!
