Another thing to keep in mind, most of the characters are “face characters,” meaning they aren’t under a giant mask, like you would see them at Walt Disney World. Once Doc McStuffins was over, an unexpected surprise came through the crowd – Mickey and Minnie Mouse came out to start the show! That was exciting even for me!
After a brief intermission, some Pirates snuck into the crowd and pulled a few children up on stage for a sing-along, which opened next to Jake and the Neverland Pirates. I thought the Jake segment was much more entertaining than Sofia. We got to see Jake, Cubby, Izzy, Scully, Captain Hook, Smee, Sharky and Bones, the Crocodile, and a crew of pirates. The gang had their typical adventure versus Captain Hook and after Jake was imprisoned by Hook he was saved by the one and only Peter Pan, who made a grand entrance flying through the air! The most exciting part for many of the children was when “gold dubloons” were shot into the crowd (paper coins). We still have them in the car and around the house!
