Disney on Ice Presents Disney*Pixar’s Toy Story 3 (giveaway)

Editor’s Note: The giveaway portion of this post is now closed.  Congratulations to the winner of the TS3 tickets, Kimberly Huang!


Our favorite animated toys are not only coming to life, but they are also coming to the ice in the latest Disney on Ice performance of Disney*Pixar’s Toy Story 3 on Ice.

Disney*Pixar's Toy Story 3 On Ice

I would venture to say that the Toy Story trilogy is one of the most beloved set of family movies ever made. Moms, dads and kids alike can’t help but falling in love with these endearing animated characters. My kids play with their Toy Story figurines almost more than any other toys that we own and they are well on their way to having all of the Toy Story character plush dolls (Lotso is my favorite because he smells like strawberries). They just about made a hole in the floor from jumping up and down when I told them we were going to see a live show with all their fave characters, on ice!

So bundle up and head on down to the Valley View Casino Center (formerly the San Diego Sports Arena) to see Woody, Jessie, Buzz and many more (I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a repeat performance of the Barbie+Ken fashion show), January 25th through the 29th, five days only.

    I like Mr. Potatohead. He’s cute and says silly stuff. I like when he loses his eyes too.

    I don’t know why but my granddaughter loves Rex

  3. Tracey Crawford 01/11/2012 at 8:51 pm

    Mine are the zealots, Ian’s fave is Buzz, Kendall’s is Woody!

    Jesse of course! She is a brave girl that overcomes her sadness and fears (of the dark and being abandoned) to live her dream of bringing joy to a child.

    Although my daughter likes Bo Peep because she is wearing a dress. Hmmm!

    My favorite character is Woody, he’s so cute! Thank you so much for this fabulous giveaway, with 5 kidlets this would be a big help!

    My favorite is Toy Story 3, i really cried at the end of the movie…but my 2 boys love all of them, every time they showed in TV, we watch it and they open their little eyes just like the first time! and after the movie they run to the playroom and start play with their toy story toys 😉

  7. cathy 01/11/2012 at 2:11 pm

    We love Woody because he’ll always be your friend to the end!

  8. Janet 01/11/2012 at 9:49 am

    Gotta love Hamm for his one liners…

  9. Kimberly Huang 01/10/2012 at 5:41 pm

    My 22 month old son’s favorite Toy Story character is Buzz Lightyear and his favorite saying is, “to infinity and beyond.” We love dancing with Buzz and Jessie at the end of Toy Story 3.

    My family and I love Jessie, Woody and Bullseye. We love that the fact the they are cowboy, cowgirl and of course they got a horse.

  11. Ginger 01/10/2012 at 3:16 pm

    My family loves Buzz and my boys think he’s hilarious. Personally I love Bullseye because he’s cute. 🙂

    We watch Toy Story about 5 times a week in our house. My 2 year old is obsessed.. My fave is Buzz, he’s a little awkward at times but always comes out the hero. Plus he wants to keep his gang together. But my little guy would be very mad if I didn’t give an honorable mention to Woody, I mean who doesn’t love a good cowboy?

  13. Ginger 01/10/2012 at 2:49 pm

    *My* favorite is probably Bo Peep. She’s got a little attitude underneath that sweet demeanor!

    But Woody is the man who rules the roost at our house.

  14. Danielle 01/10/2012 at 2:49 pm

    My favorite character is Jessie… gotta love her spunk!

  15. Colleen Lanin 01/10/2012 at 1:05 pm

    My favorite character is Jessie because I love her bubbly personality and Joan Cusack plays her voice so well.

  16. stefanie 01/10/2012 at 12:15 pm

    Woody. Because he is a goofy cowboy like my husband 🙂
