I can see doing this for preschool, that's so much more important than a dance recital IMO. But the sad part is the parents who did this are vetrans, and the mommies of new dancers (preschool age) probably aren't aware how fast tickets sell out. And believe it or not, this way is probably better than general admission free-for-all when they line up at the theatre door 2 hours early and then save 40 seats with tape and ribbon...it did get ugly in there a few years ago from what I understand, lol. I missed it because we were at another studio then, and had 2 shows.

I am going to be in your neck of the woods for the May long weekend (May 21-24 for you Americans) and I was wondering if there were any "not to be missed" fabric stores I should take a look at, we don't get very much Disney fabric up here, is there a good spot to stock up?




Welcome and well done, that is so cute!!

I have one & I LOVE it! Mine's a 2006 & it's wonderful. I like that I have room to take all the stuff we need for a week at Disney, but I don't feel like I'm driving a tank. I also like that I'm going to be able to get 3 carseats in the back.

Thanks for letting me know.
I just paid for it today. I am not sure if I can drive it to Disney - 2200 mile trip - but it will certainly get me around for work and for caking! The back looks like it lays nice and flat so I am looking forward to that

I should get him on Wednesday - he is getting new brakes before I take receipt and I noticed today that there are 4 new tires on it so that makes me happy too!

This is the first year they haven't done general seating, so if you want center front, you need to get there early. I got there on time, and was probably 30th in line. I overheard some mothers saying they got there at 5:30am and were 5th in line. Guess I'm a slacker mom. DH disagrees because I also overheard someone else saying she volunteered to get tix for several families, and she bought 50. He says the slacker moms are the ones who let their friend wait in line.
We do tickets this way, and it has gotten to the point that people are camping or the night before starting when the kids get out of school, and sleeping in thier cars. They only allow 20 tickets to be purchased per space in line so that what you are talking about doesn't happen. We lucked out this year and had a friend on staff with enough extra tickets that we didn't have to camp out, but I have overnighted the last two years. I think it is so much better than general seating. I would much rather have a long night well in advance of the recital than have to get there way early on recital night. We are tired enought by the time we are there from 4:00 to midnight for rehersal the day before. DD6 really HAS to sleep in the next day if she is going to dance 5 numbers. We had people lining up outside the civic center doors at noon on recital day for a 6:30 pm performance. That makes for really cranky dancers by 11:00 when the last number rolls. It also cuts down on having to referee seat saving. That coudl be a nightmare in and of itself. This way no one has to get there before the doors open at 5:30 and vthe kids are in much better shape to dance.
