"I'd like to buy an AYE! Then an Arrrrrrgh!"
Not kidding, that's one of my favorite jokes. It cracks me up every time. I'm like a five year old when it comes to jokes. If it could potentially be found on a popsicle stick or in the back of Highlights Magazine, I probably adore it. I'm pretty much just a giant kid in an adult sized body pretending that I'm an adult doing adult things. somehow tricking everyone that I'm a real adult.
That's one of the best things about having kids, I can totally rock out to Disney Radio and watch "Jesse" and "Good Luck Charlie" and pretend that I'm just a super awesome mom who gets into the things her kids love. Except, you know, my kids are both under two years old, so I'm not really tricking anyone, am I?
I mean, Bree is all about Disney Junior and the princesses. Sophia the First is like her favorite thing ever. EVER. EVER! (Except Doc McStuffins, but really, no one can compete with Doc, amirite?!)
So when we saw Disney Junior Live: Pirates and Princess Adventure was coming to a town near us, we happily snagged three tickets.
After what felt like 647,102 days, it was finally Pirates and Princesses day!
We took a princess bath, complete with bubbles and pink water!
And then we had a nap, and a Disney princess lunch:
We donned our princess and pirate gear and dropped little brother off at Grandma and Grandpa's, stopped for dinner and headed to the Sun National Bank Arena.
And ten minutes before show time, we heard a familiar voice! Was it? Could it be? Is that? It is!
Doc McStuffins! An adorable pre-show that certainly got us excited and interested in what was yet to come! We got to sing a song with Doc, and she diagnosed a toy car with "Too-excited-itis" and wrote it in her big book of boo-boos! So cool.
Mickey and Minnie hosted the show, appearing before each act and at the end.
Next up, Sophia the First! I loved that the show used the actual voices of the characters, so it was recognizable for the kids. From the moment the show started, and the theme song was sung, it was lots of action and tons of fun!
The storyline was cute, and the costumes were fun. Some familiar songs were song, like "You Can Always Count on Baileywick" and the fairy godmothers Flora, Fauna and Merryweather are featured. Cinderella even made an appearance when Sophia's amulet started flashing!
A short intermission and it was time for Jake and the Neverland Pirates! It was late (the show started at 7pm!) and I wasn't sure she'd make it through the whole thing, but she was super into it!
And so were we! Captain Hook had the coolest outfit of the night, there was swashbuckling and swords, and FLYING. Like for real (harness) flying, y'all! Peter Pan flew and danced, and even Jake and Izzy got to use the pixiedust and fly! Say wha?!
It was amazing, seriously. Smee was just as loveable. Scully was there! It was overall just an awesome show and we all loved it.
When Feld Entertainment does Disney, they do it big and they do it right.
I may have (totally did) cried more than once from happy tears! It was such a fun night and
Leaving was kinda sad, actually.
