Today I took my PA daughter to Disneys The Little Mermaid on Ice at the America West Areana in PX. By intermission she was having breathing trouble. I carry an inhaler as she is also Asthmatic. Tonight she is on heavy doses of Benadryl and Prelone so that she can breath.

They serve shelled peanuts.
I plan to write the production company as well as the areana about serving shelled peanuts at functions that attract young children. Be sure to check before you attend this type of event with a PA kid.

As a side note, the show was great if you are not PA.

Sorry to hear of your experience with the peanuts. We have been to many of the Disney Ice Shows and I have never seen peanuts served, thank goodness. I guess this is just the choice of the particular arena that you went to. Hopefully you can get them to eliminate peanuts during childrens' shows.

Hi, my son had a reaction at a hockey game when a person sitting in the aisle above us was eating salted cashews. The dust that he inhaled provoked it. He is allergic to nuts and peanuts. Last summer on these boards there was discussion about nuts at baseball games and various family's approaches when they wanted to attend a game. You could use the search function on these boards to find them. I have been successful in terms of our arena by calling ahead and requesting accommodation such as in a box or other private seating area. Hope this helps. Take care.
