This past weekend my family and I grabbed our pirate hats and headed out to see Disney Junior Live On Tour! Pirate & Princess Adventure. My children are a bit older now than the typical “Disney Junior kid”, but they still enjoyed the show! The show is perfect for any Disney Junior fan and I would say ideal for any child 5 or under. With two 30-35 minutes acts and a nice 25 minute intermission, there were no restless kids to be found at the show.
The show begins with a quick 10 minute session with Doc McStuffins and one of her toys. It was a nice way to bring in another popular Disney Junior character to the show. Then, as with every live Disney show, Mickey and Minnie welcome the crowd. I was almost as excited as the little boy next to me who was yelling, “Mickey! Mickey!” while he was on stage. Mickey and Minnie introduce Sofia and the rest of her friends and family from Enchancia.
In the Sofia story, Sofia and her friends work to come up with the perfect present that Sofia can give at the Enchancia Friendship Festival. Along the way, the audience is treated to some of the popular songs from different Sofia episodes. We also got a chance to go to Royal Prep, spend some time with Baileywick, Sofia’s parents and a surprise Disney princess who stops in to offer advice to Sofia.
After intermission, Mickey and Minnie introduced Jake and the pirate crew from Neverland and it was off to find treasure! The Jake and the Neverland Pirates story was our favorite of the show. We followed along as Cubby uses his map to guide the crew to a volcano that erputs with treasure. Captain Hook is there, of course, to stop them and find the treasure. My favorite scene was with Captain Hook and his pirate crew dancing with buckets on their feet. It was a lot of fun and the audience clearly loved the dancing. When things get rough for Jake and the crew, Peter Pan comes to help save the day.
My family really enjoyed Disney Junior Live. My 7 year old son seemed on the older side for the target audience, but being a Disney fan, he enjoyed the show. The little kids in the audience definitely loved the show. We all liked that the background of the story was a large screen that could change with the story. The sets could then be more simple, but still had a grand feel and big impact on the story.
Disney Junior Live is touring the country now! For ticket information, go to the Disney Junior Live website.
