Disney Live: Mickey’s Music Festival

I was really excited to be able to take Kalyra to see the Disney Live concert with her favourite Princess Ariel performing.

She however, was not bursting with enthusiasm and was quite opposed to the idea.

It was my fault for telling her that she would get to meet Mickey and Minnie Mouse in person.

She is terrified of characters in real life. At Sea World recently, she dived under the table quicker that a hunted jackrabbit when the Cookie Monster walked by.

It was on the train going down to the concert in Sydney, that my accompanying best friend also told me of her sons fears that had kept him awake some of the night.

Disney Live with Mickey Mouse and the gangFair enough right? They are big and scary in their suits and a bit hard for their tiny minds to imagine how they can jump from the small pages of their books to be right in front of them.

Nervously waiting the start

Kalyra spent the first ten minutes of the show hiding behind her hands and clutched to my arm in fear. The loud noises and smoke shrouding the genie as he popped out of her lantern had her shaking in the seat.

Three wishes please

A whole new world

She was peaking through her finger tips though and as soon as Jasmine came out she relaxed a little and by the time Princess Ariel came out ten minutes later she was sitting back in her seat and dancing to the music transfixed on her mermaid princess idol. Ursula didn’t even bother her.

Kalyra is a girly girl. She is besotted with Princesses and Ariel was by far her favourite of the show,

What a princess

She thoroughly enjoyed the rest of the show, as did her friend Billy, who was amazed that Buzz was in front of him bouncing around throwing meteors off the stage to rescue his friends Woody and Jessie.

My friend, Bec and I enjoyed the show almost as much as the kids, maybe even more. The dancing and singing was great and the stage production and effects were awesome.

Thanks for the show!

The real scary part came at the end with the opportunity to meet the characters. Kalyra started to lose it in tantrum form, “I don’t want to see Mickey” with a foot stomp and an almost throw-herself-on-the-ground-and-scream performance.

Waiting to meet Mickey and Minnie

Lucky she was able to sit on my lap and watch the other children go first. She soon whispered, “I’ll go up if you carry me.”

We did it! Hiya Mickey

So up we went to meet Mickey and Minnie Mouse in person!

Lucky for her, this might mean she could be almost ready for Disney Land.
