New Year’s Eve was a cold one in Anchorage, Alaska this year. The temperatures hovered around zero degrees – perfect weather for enjoying the ice train we found sitting in the town square plaza. An ice carving team came all the way from China to create a Disney-themed children’s ice park. It was pretty amazing watching them transform thousands of pounds of ice blocks into fantastic sculptures.
It was extremely cold outside – we weren’t able to stay out very long. But we had a fun time with the ice versions of our favorite Disney characters like Lightning McQueen, Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck. There was even a version of the tea cup ride – you could actually sit and spin in the carved out ice!
