Last Friday we were lucky enough to get to go and watch Mickey’s Magic Show at Capital Fm Arena in Nottingham. I’ve never been to any of the Disney shows before apart from the ones at Disneyland Paris so I was really unsure what to expect; but had a very good feeling as Disney usually produce quality!
Mickey, Minnie and a host of Disney friends come together in their very own magic show live on stage!
Witness the magic from legendary Disney films performed right before your eyes. See the Fairy Godmother transform Cinderella’s rags into a beautiful ball gown; the spectacular levitation of Aladdin’s Princess Jasmine; and the enchanted dancing brooms of Fantasia.
Join Donald and Goofy, Alice and the Mad Hatter, the Disney Princesses, plus many more for a one-of-a-kind stage show you’ll never forget – when Disney Magic takes on a whole new meaning!
We took Boo & her little friend from school and they are both 5 – I would say they are the perfect age for the show, I’m sure if they had been younger they wouldn’t have understood the magic or had the patience for it and would have been fidgeting! The girls really really enjoyed the show especially the part where they “magic-ed” on the Disney Princesses! The levitation of Princess Jasmine was brilliant and the girls were completely AMAZED!
The show was really fantastic and there was great audience interaction and participation throughout! I do wish we has been closer to the front; it is really hard to feel part of it when you are so far from the stage so I would say it is definitely worth paying a bit extra to get a better seat! The Arena is huge and probably not the best place for a stage show such as this but it was brilliant anyway!
Thankfully I took some sweets for the girls to enjoy throughout the show, I really would advise anyone going to watch it to do the same, the cost of food, drink and products is very expensive! Popcorn costs £7 and a brochure costs £8. I really don’t see the need for such high costs when tickets are £18+ each! I bought the girls a Minnie Mouse helium balloon each as we went out, they were £5 each which is pretty standard for a balloon nowadays; unfortunately Boo let hers go so it was a total waste of money! If you buy a balloon tie it to their wrist or you will have a very distraught child on your hands 😉
