|Outside the ice castle|
First of all, we picked one of the busiest days of the year to go. Today was a holiday and so the lines were incredibly long, even if you had purchased tickets before hand online. We waited about 45 minutes and actually the wait wasn't too unbearable because luckily it was warm today. There were also lots of Disney princesses roaming around and even though we have three boys, we still enjoyed watching them walk around. We even took a picture with Miss Utah County who was Elsa from the movie Frozen.
|Elsa and Anna...kind of!|
|Some of the Disney princesses that walked past us.|
|Olaf...we love him!|
We left before it was dark and decided not to go back later for the lights, even though that had been our plan. We had our hands stamped, but they said we would still have to wait in line to get back in. We weren't up for another 45 minute wait in the cold and the dark, but you can check out pictures on their website of the ice castles all lit up. It is supposed to be quite the sight. We know that our boys would have loved the lights because they thought everything was awesome even through all the waiting...they are better troopers than we are sometimes.
If you decide to visit the ice castles in Midway, make sure to wear boots. There is a lot of snow and ice to walk through and of all the winter wear that we took, we were most grateful for our boots. Plan on waiting in line if you go on a weekend, and possibly now on weekdays. This adventure has become quite popular. They hope to keep it running through February but it all depends on the weather.

They are constantly building.
