Embarcadero Building Lighting Ceremony
I recently put up a blog post of holiday events which you can see here
. One of the holiday events I listed was the Embarcadero Building Lighting Ceremony
. Jeremiah & I had never been & when I realized they were doing a free mini show of Disney on Ice,
we thought to check it out.
Once we got there, we realized that they had a few activity tents placed around.
They had candy cane making, ornament making, ring toss, Mrs. Clause making balloon animals, a Magic Show, etc.
One of the main attractions was meeting Mickey Mouse from Disney on Ice. You can take photos with Mickey Mouse & get a gold crown with Mickey ears on it.
We stood in line for about 15 minutes before Jeremiah asked if we could get the Mickey crown & an employee told us that it was “for the kids only” (gasp inserted here). That is something Walt Disney would never say & is against what Disney is about, but (shrugs)!
We stepped out of line since we were told that Mickey was leaving soon for the show. We went to the viewing area for the show & realized how packed it already was.
We tried getting a good view on the stairs, but it was still kind of horrible (as shown below).
20 minutes prior to the show starting, we were all told that they close off the stairs for the show. I feel like they should’ve let us know that much earlier, as everyone was waiting there for more than a half hour.
So, everyone moved their way down & tried their best to find a good spot.
We didn’t find a good spot & I honestly didn’t see anything. I was able to take these photos using my GoPro stick though.
There was another ice skating show after the Disney on Ice performers, but Jeremiah & I decided to leave because we were both hungry & didn’t see a point in staying any longer.
Overall, did we enjoy the event? Unfortunately, no. It probably isn’t something we would do again unless we have a kid. The whole event seemed to be more geared towards children.
After the Embarcadero Building Lighting Ceremony, we ate at Kirimachi Ramen which was in the same plaza. The wait time took forever because there was only one waitress & about 15 tables. We didn’t mind the wait since Jeremiah was watching basketball on his phone & I was watching Supernatural.
If you ever plan on going here, the gyoza is a must!
I forgot what we got, but I think it was Tonkatsu?
Overall, we thought the ramen was good, but we might’ve just been hungry!
