Dress up your little princesses & heroes for Disney on Ice this weekend in Savannah

October 23rd, 2014

SF_D26B_CharacterLogo_SFYK_11026 (1)

Elsa isn’t on the ice in Savannah’s annual Disney on Ice show.

But Elsa certainly is in the audience. Lots of Elsas.

Oodles of little girls dressed up as Elsa at the skating spectacular that’s in Savannah this weekend for nine performances at the Savannah Civic Center.    Disney on Ice encourages kids attending the event to dress up as their favorite princesses & heroes.

We attended the packed opening night this week & loved seeing all the kids dressed as their favorite Disney characters.

Disney On Ice presents Treasure Trove  features all your Old School Disney favorites- Rapunzel, Alice & the Mad Hatter, Tinker Bell, Peter Pan, Captain Hook, Tiana, Cinderella, Jasmine, Ariel, Sleeping Beauty, Belle, Mulan, Snow White  and, my favorite, the Seven Dwarfs.

The crowd loved Simba, Nala, Pumbaa and Timon as they discovered the true meaning of the ‘Circle of Life.’

The show is about 1 hour & 45 minutes with a 20 minute intermission about 40 minutes in the performance.

Tickets for Disney On Ice presents Treasure Trove are available at the Savannah Civic Center Box Office here and Etix.com.

DoubleTree Hotel & Old Savannah Tours ghost trolley tour = Perfect Date Night or Girls’ Night Out

October 21st, 2014

DoubleTree Savannah Deals

Spending an evening in Savannah’s historic district is always a treat.

But spending an evening in the historic district on a ghost trolley tour, followed by a night in a posh downtown hotel with views of the Savannah River & bridge, then waking to a breakfast that manages to be both decadent and healthy – well, that is downright divine.

We recently had the memorable experience of doing all that at DoubleTree by Hilton Savannah Historic District. We were there as part of a special free night for Savannah bloggers organized by DoubleTree & could not have had a better experience.

DoubleTree’s Spook, Slumber & Save package is the ideal date night staycation getaway for parents who really need a night off or for moms’ groups in need of a rockin’ moms’ night out. The hotel is right next to River Street & City Market.

DoubleTree Hotel Savannah Historic District Downtown Oh and did we mention, the ghost trolley tour does pick up and drop off at the hotel.

Think fun fall-themed drinks in DoubleTree’s hotel bar followed by truly spooky stories aboard the open-air Old Savannah Tours ghost trolley tour.  DoubleTree’s Spook, Slumber & Save package includes one tour ticket per person for the enticing two-hour ghost tour, overnight accommodations,  parking with complimentary valet service and a hot Southern breakfast each morning of your stay.

Our ghost tour guide – Savannah native Desiree – had a knack for sharing Savannah’s haunting lore in a way that made it both entertaining & educational. We crept down the stairs into the rum cellar of the Pirates’ House & really hoped for a ghost encounter while inside the “Infrared Room” at the Sorrel-Weed House, where you can watch eerie orbs on the four cameras located in the basement.

The ghost stories Desiree told & downtown haunted landmarks we visited were a welcome reminder of something all busy Savannah parents need to remember –  that we live in a remarkably rich city that is simply teeming with history and depth.

What better way to celebrate that than with a sweet Fall staycation in our very own downtown Savannah.

And with a warm DoubleTree by Hilton chocolate chip cookie!
