Last Week I shared that my family and I would be attending Disney Junior Live On Tour Pirate & Princess Adventure. Here is our review of the show.
Act One: Sophia The First (8 year old review)
According to Big Z: “It was so much fun. Sophia looked so beautiful and Cinderella is amazing! The music and dancing were my favorite parts.” Sounds to me like she loved it. Why is my 8 year old reviewing it? I would love to say because it’s only right for the kids to say how the show was. This is partially true but the reality is The Hubs and I missed part of Sophia’s performance. I’ll tell you who was to blame: The Toddler.
Sugar Plum Z refused to enter the theatre. She screamed and cried so we took turns hanging out with her in the hallway. We tried everything but nothing worked. We ended up watching parts of Sophia on the television but there was no volume.
Zoë was happy to see her sister (and dad.) Hubs bought them each souvenirs, popcorn and lemonade. This pleased Zoë so we were able to bring her into the theatre. The ushers said we could sit in the back and we gladly accepted. Everything went great until the Pirates came out to the audience. Zoë screamed and cried and Hubs quickly returned to the hallway with her.
Jake & The Neverland Pirates
Big Z: “I love Jake but I really love Izzy. I hope she comes out so she can use her pixie dust.” And that she did. Jake & friends put on a fun show. I loved the dancing, acting and when Peter Pan appeared to save the day.
Overall the show was excellent for the entire family. Parents and children were dressed as Sophia, Jake, King Roland II, Queen Miranda and other princesses and pirates. The appearance by other princesses, Mickey & Minnie Mouse, and Doc McStuffins made the show so much fun. I love how Disney is able to incorporate other characters. The variety was well received.
The show is great for kids age 2-8. Now if your toddler is afraid of dark, loud noises, large crowds or unfamiliar a surroundings, you may end up spending most of your time in the hallway Get there early so you can settle in. We missed the pre-show with Doc McStuffins performance due to an overcrowded parking lot. There was another engagement at the Galleria that night. Doc may have been the start Zoë needed.
The only issue we had was the cost of the souvenirs and snacks. 2 souvenirs, 1 bags of popcorn and 2 cups of lemonade for $96. It’s outrageous to me but daddy will do anything for her girls.
Overall we had a great time. I’m sure Sugar Plum Z will adjust to seeing shows in the future. Did you take your family to see Disney Junior Live? Share your experience with us.
