Review: Disney Jr. LIVE A Pirate and Princess Adventure
I had the opportunity to take my kids to the Excel Energy Center and see the show Disney Jr. LIVE: A Pirate and Princess Adventure. They did this show twice on the same day in St. Paul, MN. We were at the second show for the day. While there are not anymore shows on the current schedule in MN, there are MANY more nationwide through May 2014.
Here I am with my little pirate with nacho cheese on his face. LOL! He was just as excited to see the Sofia the First show as Jake and the Neverland Pirates. He loves to watch both show on the Disney Channel.
And here is my little princess wearing a Cinderella tiara and a princess style dress her grandma made for her. She was beyond thrilled when Cinderella appeared in the Sofia the First program.
If you planned ahead and arrived 10 minutes before the start of the show, you would be lucky enough to see a live show of Doc McStuffins. That is a fun little bonus that we did know about and planned to be there for.
I wish we were a little closer to see how the costumes were designed. They have such an appearance of being a plastic costume for face and hair but still looks quite realistic.
My kids were so excited when they sang the "Bailywick" song because it was one of the most recent episodes they had just watched over and over the past week.
The costumes were all so vibrant and very much what you would have expected if you watch the show. It was really such a cute production. They had an intermission right after the Sofia production and we couldn't wait to see the Jake and the Neverland Pirates production.
Just like Sofia had a special guest in Cinderella, Jake had a special guest in Peter Pan. My daughter was bouncing out of her seat when they mentioned Peter Pan and Tinkerbell, although Tinkerbell was just on the video screen in the back, which was hard to see from our seats and then was a light in a container, but Peter Pan was a full size character.
It was a cute program and both of my kids enjoyed it. My son was very active in participating in songs and movements they had asked for audience participation with.
The show ended with the cast of all the productions coming out and was joined by Mickey and Minnie. Mickey and Minnie also opened the show and provided a transition between the productions.
I was given free tickets to attend this show for this review post. No monetary compensation was recieved. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
