Our Beauty and The Beast Screening

IMG_3860

When starting this blog I wasn’t sure how I was going to come up with topics to write about as time progressed on. But after going at it for a couple years now I have found that I have plenty to write about, particularly about some of the opportunities that have presented themselves such as this particular event.

Working with Life of Dad and Disney, I had an amazing opportunity to host a Beauty and The Beast screening for the new Blu-ray that was released on June 6 (buy it!). My daughter loves Belle and all that she is capable of and when I asked her if she would like to have a big movie party she was immediately excited and her little mind started turning over ideas of what we could do.

Some of her ideas were too grand. Believe me, I think it would have been awesome to rent out a ballroom and have a beautiful celebration, however, this is going to be setup in my backyard, so the ballroom is going to be out of realm of possibilities. We were able to setup lights and decorations, along with a big screen to show the movie.

With a handful of kids, my wife and I hosted a fantastic screening of the movie. We had lots of candy, popcorn, glow sticks, and even a photo booth. There’s not much more to say about the screening other than the movie is worth picking up and thank you Life of Dad and Disney for this opportunity to screen the movie!

Check out the photos from our event and be sure to pick up your copy of Beauty and The Beast which is now available wherever Blu-rays are sold!

DISNEY LIVE

St. Louis Magic with Mickey and Minnie!

DISNEY LIVEExperience the awesome thrill of magic with your little ones at Disney Live! Mickey and Minnie’s Doorway to Magic Presented by Stonyfield YoKids Organic Yogurt. Earlier this afternoon we headed back downtown for another awesome event. This time it wasn’t at night but during the day. So it was just a little different than our previous adventures downtown. Also, we headed to the Chaifetz arena this time.

Once we picked up our tickets and found our seats we grabbed a few snacks before the show began. This time my wife and I brought along my other niece to enjoy the show with my daughter Abby. We had a little bit of an idea of what we were going to be seeing based on my previous post, but I was amazed with all of the awesome magic performed on stage. The crowd cheered on Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy and helped say the magic words that took us to different parts of the Disney universe. We first were sent to see Cinderella and her fairy godmother. There were songs, dancing, and more magic. I think everyone’s favorite part had to be Buzz Lightyear’s performance. He danced around the lazers and made them go every which way. The kids were going crazy during it. Then of course Jesse and Woody came out to do some jump roping.

IMG_3027 The show itself seemed to be around an hour and a half or a just a little longer. There were the same souvenirs that you would see at most Disney Live events. I am still not a big fan of the prices on some of these items. But we still try to get something that is at least unique to the event that probably isn’t sold anywhere else. So we grabbed some cotton candy with a very cool sorcerers hat  and the girls also each got a souvenir Tangled goblet filled with a sno-cone.

IMG_3039Unfortunately, the show is only one day only, TODAY! But there are still tickets available for the final showings this evening. Tickets can be purchased by clicking here, and are priced as follows. Save $5 by using my exclusive code when ordering BLOG16. Offer not valid on premium seating. No double discounts. Additional fees may apply. Offer subject to ticket availability.

We cannot wait to see what Disney Live! has in store for St. Louis later this year. We will be sure to keep our St. Louis Dad readers updated on all of the great things coming to town for you and your kids!

DISNEYONICE

Disney on Ice Treasure Trove in St. Louis!

DISNEYONICELast night we had an amazing adventure in downtown St. Louis at the Scott Trade Center checking out Disney on Ice! I had never been to a Disney on Ice performance and was very interested to see what the big deal is. With tickets provided by Feld Entertainment we loaded up the kids and headed downtown ready for whatever.

Where we live it doesn’t take very long to get downtown. So a quick drive down the highway and a little cruise downtown and we were already parking before we knew it. The kids got their tickets scanned and we followed suit and found our seats. Once we got our seats we wanted to grab some snacks before the show started.

IMG_2922We got some popcorn, nachos, and a drink to share and got back to our seats in record time. The show started and out came the characters from Toy Story! It was so cool seeing the choreography between all of the skaters. The music immediately had everyone dancing in their seats. I don’t want to spoil the entire show, but expect to see a plethora of Disney characters ranging from Peter Pan to Tiana from Princess and The Frog. You can read my original post announcing the event to learn more about who will all be there.

A few other highlights that I enjoyed was the Aladdin performance along with The Lion King. Abby was stoked the entire show and even dressed as Queen Elsa to show off her princess powers. My niece Madi dressed as Cinderella to join in on the fun. They both said that they were most excited to see Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. They started dancing so goofy when the dwarfs were breaking it down.

IMG_2919You can still pick up some tickets for the show. Disney on Ice Treasure Trove will be at the Scott Trade Center all weekend. It’s a great show that lasts about 2 hours. Perfect timing for any Disney princess fanatic.

Don’t think this show is only for girls either. Sure their are a lot of princesses, but don’t forget Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Aladdin, Genie, Captain Hook, Peter Pan and The Lost Boys and more! Plenty of tiny gentlemen were in attendance having a blast. I saw one youngster dressed in a full astronaut costume. It was awesome!

About halfway through the show you can expect an intermission so you can take a restroom break and replenish your refreshments if needed. We took this opportunity to get the kids a souvenir from the show. While the majority of the merchandise is significantly more expensive than it would be at a box store. The items were definitely cool and make a great memory from an awesome event. Just be sure to set a budget. 

Interested in checking out Disney on Ice this weekend? Grab some tickets here and enjoy! Don’t forget you can save $5 by using the promo code BLOG16, this promo code offer is not valid on the Thursday, Jan. 28 7 p.m. performance. Offer not valid on premium seating. No double discounts. Additional fees may apply. Offer subject to ticket availability.
