Last week, SUN Cellular gave me 4 tickets to Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival. It was the first ever show to be conducted in the newly renovated Kia Theatre (formerly New Frontier Theater) in Araneta Center.
They weren’t just any tickets, they were SVIP Center Row tickets, the most expensive ones for Disney Live! Mickey’s Musical Festival. Yes, you actually get to sit in the center of the first row in front of the stage. These would normally cost over P3.5k each. The show ran from Sept. 1 to 6, 2015.
I have a teen (14) and a tween (10) who are not really that much into Disney anymore, so I figured I would give the tickets to my nieces Dani and Demi who are the biggest Disney fans this side of the country.
They were so happy!!! According to their mom (my cousin), the theater is just a few meters away from the Smart Araneta Coliseum. It has a seating capacity of 2,385 and what they were watching was the very first show (Sept. 1) upon its re-opening! From hereon, I’ll let my cousin do the talking… er blogging, lol!
As we made our way to our front row seats, my kids could not contain their excitement. The Mickey logo alone on the theater curtains was enough to send my 2-year old to a frenzy pointing and saying Mickey Mouse, Mickey Mouse! As the lights dimmed and the show began, they showed Mickey and the gang backstage, getting ready for the concert. Dancing and singing erupted as soon as Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and Donald reached the stage. All the kids were dancing and singing. Short stories from Disney’s most famous cartoons were woven into the storyline.
Genie and Aladdin entertained us with the song One Jump which opened up Aladdin’s segment. Princess Jasmine and Prince Ali enthralled kids and adults alike with the ballad “A Whole New World.” Sebastian from The Little Mermaid gathered different sea creatures to serenade Ariel and Prince Eric with the song “Kiss The Girl”. Who would not be captivated with Ariel’s singing of “Part of that World”? It was a medley of Disney’s Grammy-winning songs!
Soon, Sheriff Woody, Bullseye and Jessie entertained us with rope tricks. They invited the kids to clap, sing and dance like cowboys! Mickey and the gang joined the characters of each Disney story.
It was truly a fantastic evening of singing along to many wonderful Disney songs and popular pop songs. An hour and a half passed by so quickly!
