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.

Making Memories at Marvel Universe Live

MAKING MEMORIESLast night we had the excellent opportunity to see Marvel Universe Live at the Scott Trade Center in downtown St. Louis. Our little group consisted of me, my wife Destiny, my daughter Abby, my niece Madi, and my son Alex. After parking we headed towards ticket pick up to grab our tickets. The girls were excited to have their tickets scanned when we entered. After entering the Scott Trade Center we went off to find our seats. It didn’t take very long to find Section 110 Row U, seats 3-6. The seats were awesome. We could see everything directly in front of us. We also had a safety bar in front of us, so the kids did not have to bother anyone that would’ve been seated in front of us.

IMG_2532Since we arrived a little before the show started we decided to check out all of the cool booths that were setup. There were so many different concessions. Snow cones, popcorn, candy, toys, and more. The price on many of the items was in line with your typical pricing found at sporting events. We decided on some popcorn that came with a cool Marvel hat and a soda souvenir cup. I also had to have some nachos so I grabbed a nice tray of them. We went back to our seats just a few minutes before the show started.

IMG_2529The show itself was spectacular to say the least. All of The Avengers came out and hatched up a plan to stop Loki along with a multitude of other villains from the Marvel Universe. It was awesome to see all of the various characters out doing their thing. The effects were spot on and you could not help but join in and cheer when some amazing stunts took place. I am being vague when I describe some of this because I do not want to spoil the show for you. It is definitely worth checking out while it’s still in town.

535053_10206597249504664_2083885620346444098_nAfter around 40-45 minutes the show broke for about a 15 minute intermission. The second half of the show really kicked everything into high gear as The Avengers moved closer to stopping Loki and all of the villains. Near the end of the show there was an incredible appearance by a big named Avenger that I think just steals the show.

All in all our family had an amazing time at this event and we all recommend checking it out. The girls were talking about the show all night and even this morning. When they would say one character was their favorite they would then list off another that was even cooler. Each character got to shine that night. Including Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers) and Black Widow (Natasha Romanova), the girls really enjoyed both of them but I think they could have added just a bit more for Captain Marvel. She is an awesome character but in the show I think some of the bigger names got more of the spotlight. That’s okay, her movie is going to be amazing when it’s released.

Me and my family would like to thank Feld Productions and Marvel for putting on a great show! We hope to see the Marvel Universe return to St. Louis next year.

All the villains and heroes! #marveluniverselive #stl #scotttradecenter
