CAMERON Park's Ellen Crossman is arguably the Hunter's Disney On Ice biggest fan.
Mrs Crossman has seen the show every year but a few, since she had her first job at 18 and could afford tickets.
"Sometimes I dragged my mother and sisters along, sometimes my workmates."
Growing up, her favourite Disney princess was Ariel from The Little Mermaid.
Now 31, Mrs Crossman has two princesses of her own. Her daughters Megan, 7, and Jasmine, 6, are Disney-mad too.
Sing-a-longs are not unusual in the Crossman household, with Disney's latest movie Frozen the current favourite.
Mrs Crossman's most treasured Disney On Ice memory is when she took Megan to her first show at 18 months old. Her mother and grandmother joined them, making it a special family affair.
But this year is shaping up to be the one to beat. As finalists of a national fan competition, this Friday, June 20, the family will meet and skate with some of this year's Disney On Ice characters.
They will join the characters in a pre-show warm-up skating session then take front row seats for the opening night of this year's production, Disney On Ice presents Treasure Trove.
The show is at Newcastle Entertainment Centre from June 20 to 22. Go to nec.net.au for more information.
