We got to go see Disney Live! Mickey & Minnie’s Doorway to Magic. I was excited! I hummed Disney tunes all day, I put a Disney movie on the television while I was getting ready and told him how much fun he was going to have… but he wanted nothing to do with it. My boy thought this show was just for girls! He was wrong.
The time came to drive to Banker’s Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis for the big show! I’m a little giddy with excitement, trying to get him hyped up. I got him to sing the Hot Dog song with me… that’s a start! We arrived and found our seats. Yes, the arena was filled with adorable little girls wearing princess costumes, but there were tons of boys in the audience too. A few minutes later, the lights went down and the magic began… literally! This is a MAGIC SHOW!
The show featured tons of Disney characters (25 to be exact).. from Mickey & Minnie to Genie & Alladin, lots of characters from Toy Story… and all of the Princess. There were light shows, magic tricks and dancing. I heard lots of “Wow!” and “Look!” and the best one… “You’re right, this IS for boys too!” Aha, I told you! (Insert big smile on my face here!)
His favorite parts were the Army Guys from Toy Story and Buzz Light Year’s lazer light show. He was completely mesmerized by the lights and wants to learn how to put on his own lazer light show. So, in the end, he admitted he was wrong and was happy that I made him go to the show. He gave it two thumbs up and said that he LOVED it.
