Think about it this way, Sesame Street Live... Disney on Ice. Just the sounds alone... Disney... and it's ON ICE! You'd even go to see versions of movies you already saw! If nothing else, they're ice skating, and that IS a big part of the appeal. And again, strategically placed during the Winter vacation months. What ELSE are you gonna do to shut the kids up for a couple hours? The only times SSLive comes to this area, it's Spring vacation or later (sometimes not even IN the vacation week). It's warmer, and it's cheaper to just take the kids to the park.
