We had the opportunity to take Mila to the Disney Junior Dance Party on tour at the Merrill Auditorium in Portland last week and it was an absolute blast! We were provided with VIP tickets to the show as well as the after party, and honestly meeting the characters at the after show was THE. BEST. PART! During the show she was basically shell-shocked with all the lights and music, and was in absolute awe. She loves Sofia the First, and of course Mickey and Minnie, but the rest she still has yet to really discover. She experienced the hot dog song for the first time, and of course loved it, so we’re going to have to work on those dance moves for next time! She was certainly the minority among all the other kids who blew up out of their seats to dance along! It was so fun seeing all the kids having the time of their lives! Hearing Mila try to sing along to a few of the songs literally melted my heart. It was the cutest. thing. EVER!
I highly recommend if you are going to take your kids to anything Disney, meet the characters! Seeing her entire world light up meeting Mickey and Minnie was priceless. They had a fun little party set up with food and drinks, and an awesome play area to entertain them while they waited their turn. I actually had to peel Mila away from the play area kicking, and screaming (insert eye roll here #toddlerlife), just to go meet the characters because she was having too much fun. And then of course the second she saw Mickey, it was like the tantrum never happened and she was over the moon. I can’t wait to see her love for all things Disney grow throughout the years, and I look forward to the day we get to experience the magic of Disney World together as a family!
