As Disney fans, we were invited to see Disney Live! Mickey’s Musical Festival in exchange with sharing about our experiences. All opinions shared our own.
There is nothing more exciting than to see your healthy child happy. Watching their little eyes fill with wonder and excitement makes my own heart glow. My children have a love for a mouse, not just any mouse, the one and only Mickey the Mouse as Addie calls him. They talk, almost daily about Mickey and today we had the opportunity to see that sparkle in their eyes again when we went to see the Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival in Springfield, MO.
Even though the sky was over cast and light gray, their was a great deal of excitement as it was finally the day to see Mickey and Minnie! As we entered the Juanita Hammons Hall, the kids were immediately drawn into the displays and concessions set up at the entrance. There were bright colors and many of the familiar Disney faces on display. We stopped long enough to look around and snap a few photos.
We entered the auditorium early and the kids asked about every 30 seconds if it was time for the show to start! It made me think back to just how patient my own Mother was with us as children. They were eager for it to begin and almost couldn’t contain themselves.
Once the lights were dimmed and the show began the dancers filed out to the stage and then next Donald makes his grand entrance. I look over to Austin sitting next to me and he is feverishly waving to Donald. I couldn’t have peeled the smile off my face if I wanted to.
Addie sat on the edge of her seat while Bethany sat with her eyes glued to the stage. JJ was bouncing up and down to the music clapping his hands. Some of the Disney classics were played as well as a few current songs. Austin danced like he never has before with the mermaids to “All the single ladies”. I laughed, smiled and even almost cried. My hands were full with my two daughters bouncing to the songs while Austin danced but my heart was even fuller.
Every second of the baby crying during our drive to the show was worth every moment of seeing just how much they enjoyed seeing Mickey and his friends. With songs and appearances from Aladin, The Little Mermaid and Toy Story; Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy put on an amazing toe-tapping show.
As we were leaving, Addie asks, “What time is the next show? I am ready to see it again!” Would you expect anything less from a Disney show?
If you have young Mickey lovers in your life, be sure to see if the Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival is coming near you!
