Show Review for Disney Jr. Live Show: Sophia the First & Jake and the Neverland Pirates

Last weekend, we got invited to watch the Disney Jr. Live Show in Long Beach. With my daughter dressed up as Sophia the First, we headed to Long Beach Terrace Theatre to watch it. We absolutely loved the show. It had great looking costumes, catchy songs, an amazing casts and awesome looking props. And to add, it was interactive. There was never a dull moment during the entire show.

It was our first time at the Long Beach Terrace Theatre. And it's a beautiful venue. From the fountain outside to the tall glass facade and mirror clad walls inside. Seating was comfortable. And we had no problem seeing everything from Row 18. Except there was no aisle in the middle, that if you're seated in the middle of the row, it would be a long walk through the end.

We peruse through the Disney Jr. Live merchandise immediately when we got there. They were all too tempting to purchase. I love the Sophia the First figurine the most.

As we settled into our seats, the Doc McStuffins pre-show started. Then a loud cheer from the crowd followed when Mickey and Minnie came in to start the actual show. They asked the crowd if we preferred a Princess story or a Pirate Story. With Mickey Mouse favoring the Pirate and Minnie Mouse favoring the Princess story.

The first part of the show was about Sophia the First. With lots of dancing and singing. The story was focus on what gift Sophia will be giving to their guests for the upcoming Friendship Festival. My favorite part was when Cinderella came out to help Sophia. There was a smoke effect. The song was beautiful. The whole thing was magical. I felt like a kid again. I want to go back and see the show again for that part.

Then after we had some munchies during intermission. Jake the Never land Pirates came out with his friends. They were trying to locate the treasure volcano. With Captain Hook trying to get there before them. My daughter love the interactive part of the show where they were asked to steer the ship as they raced against Captain Hook to get to the treasure volcano. One must not miss Peter Pan flying out to help Jake and his friends.

It was a memorable show for me and my daughter. And as I write this post, she is watching Jake and the Never Land Pirates on TV once again. I guess I can tell Mickey Mouse that my daughter favored the Pirate Show more. If you weren't able to watch it yet, I highly recommend that you do, they have a Hollywood show this weekend, click here for more details and discounts.
