A fantastical, interactive extravaganza featuring Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Cinderella and more of Disney’s biggest and most popular characters. Mickey and Minnie set out to find a number of talent acts to take part in their new talent show. The audience are taken on a trip around the World in Mickey’s bus, into the sky in a balloon and into the Ugly Sisters’ Glass Slipper shop. They are treated to auditions from Cinderella, Tigger, Woody, Jessie and Buzz and more. The audience are encouraged to sing, shout, dance, wave and bounce along with their favourite Disney characters.
We went with a 4yr old girl and a 3yr old boy. Both children absolutely loved the performance, they participated eagerly and were very engaged with the whole show. They were both very disappointed when it was time to leave and go home and talked about it none-stop in the car on the way home.
The performers were all excellent, polished and really put on a brilliant show.
As a parent, I think the show itself was reasonable value for money. It’s not cheap, but as these things tend to be for a special treat, I don’t think that’s the end of the world. The merchandise on sale was at a hugely inflated price, and tipped what was a fairly priced day out to an expensive one, but I think that’s par for the course these days.
Overall, the kids had an amazing day and the kids are the reason anyone would buy tickets. I would absolutely recommend Disney Live, but would suggest taking more spending money that you might imagine you’d need!
