Disney Junior Party

It started a couple of weeks ago when my partner, Nikki, saw that Disney were giving away tickets to attend a Disney Junior Party event at a nearby Odeon cinema through their Facebook page. The tickets were available on a first come, first served basis after registering with Disney, so we thought we'd try to get ourselves onto the guest list - judging by the empty seats on the day, this wasn't as impressive a feat as I first thought!

Fast forward a couple of weeks to yesterday, when we travelled to Telford to the Odeon cinema we'd got tickets for. Upon arrival we were shown to the correct screen and we found some available seats, fortunately we arrived early and claimed two of their VIP seats.  After a few minutes, the show began with Mickey Mouse introducing himself as compère for proceedings. The event kicked off with Mickey giving instructions to the audience for an upcoming dance-a-long video. Perhaps it was because everyone was shy, or perhaps because it was early on a Sunday morning, not everyone joined in. There was a bit more enthusiasm for the second clip, which was a puzzle to identify which option was correct to complete an image relating to the following programme. We were then treated to a brand new episode of 'Doc McStuffins' ('Toy Hospital: Chilly's Snow Globe Shakeup / Hoarse Hallie'). There was another dance and puzzle, before an episode of 'The Lion Guard' was shown (I think it was 'Never Roar Again'), followed by another dance and the event coming to a close.

This was a great first experience of the cinema for our son as it was a very relaxed atmosphere, no one was going to complain if the younger children made noises and the lights remained on through the showing. He really enjoyed the dance sections and applauded at the end when Mickey was taking a reading of noise. It's definitely worth considering if you have young ones and don't know how they'll react to being in the cinema.

Hopefully there will be more events like this, I'm not sure if it's an annual thing Disney do, but I'd love to take our son to future events. I'll definitely be keeping my eyes peeled for any other events.
