Almost time for the sow to start!  The waiting is the hardest part.

Almost time for the sow to start! The waiting is the hardest part.

My family was all super excited to see our first ever Disney Live! show.  We’ve always had great experiences with Disney and we were sure that this would be no exception.

We arrived at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland about half an hour before the show started, parked, and followed the signs to the nearest entrance. Unfortunately, it was a door for ticket-holders only and our tickets were still at the will-call window.  Thankfully, the incredibly kind folks running security didn’t make us walk all the way back out into the cold and around the building to the will-call window. Instead, they arranged an escort for us and another family in the same situation to cut through the arena.  It was such a nice gesture!

We got our tickets and went off in search of our seats.

Our one complaint about previous Disney events we’ve attended was that the merchandising was quite overwhelming. Everywhere you looked someone was trying to sell you something at a breathtakingly inflated price.  We were pleasantly surprised to find that, at Disney Live! the souvenir stands were as colorful and festive as ever but scaled back quite a bit and the prices, while not exactly clearance-bin bargain, were slightly more reasonable.

Once we were all situated we had a few minutes to wait. I was totally charmed by the old-fashioned sounding sponsor announcement from Schwebel’s Bread Company that played before the show.

Finally, it was time. The lights dimmed, the countdown began and suddenly Donald Duck was playing the guitar on stage and Toddler-saurus Rex’s head was exploding with joy.

The show was delightful – funny and fast paced with some truly amazing special effects.  Several of our favorite Disney characters made an appearance throughout, singing and dancing to a great mix of Disney favorites, pop music and original songs.  We all laughed at the opening number and we all loved seeing Aladdin’s tricks and the super cool under-the-sea action with Ariel but, hands-down, our favorite scene was when the Toy Story characters came on stage. I don’t want to give it all away so I’ll just say there was some very fancy cowboy (and girl!) roping involved.

The finale was a hand-clapping, foot-stomping, jump-up-and-down blast.

Whether you are 2 or 82 you’ll enjoy this show.  It was all of the fun and wonder you’d expect from Disney.
