There are few words that conjure up more feelings of magic and wonder than Disney and Disney Live! presents Three Classic Fairy Tales did not disappoint!

Princess Alegría and her friend Princess Julia were very excited to watch some of their favourite fairy tales come to life, and to be honest, lifelong Disney devotees Anita (Julia’s Mum) and I were excited to see them too!

The Plenary, at the Melbourne Convention Centre, was filled to capacity with princess dresses, tiaras and quite a few princely looking lads who were buzzing with excitement and animated chatter.

As everyone took their seats, the lights were dimmed, and our narrators Minnie, Goofy and Donald introduced themselves. The crowd erupted when everyone’s favourite narrator, Mickey Mouse, appeared on stage and together they introduced their magic book of fairy tales.

The featured fairy tales were Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast. Each fairy tale ran for 20 minutes and concentrated on the most memorable parts of the stories. The entire show went for 90 minutes, which included a short interval in the middle that was perfectly timed for a toilet break for little ones.

There were many laugh out loud moments as the children were entertained with funny antics (especially from the Seven Dwarfs), audience participation through question and answer interaction and toe-tapping musical numbers.

Alegría says

Snow White didn’t listen to me – she ate the apple!

The voices and songs were straight from the original film scores and the staging, props, puppetry, special effects and pyrotechnics were very impressive!

Georgina Says

The costumes were amazing. Seriously. Amazing. I know I shouldn’t be so amazed, after all this is a Disney production, but the dresses were breathtaking!

There were some darker parts of the show where the Evil Queen in Snow White changed into the Old Hag along with the thunderstorm and lightning when The Beast and Gaston were fighting on the stairs during Beauty and the Beast. These scenes didn’t last for long but a reassuring hand might be required if your child/ren are prone to be scared.

Out in the foyer there were multiple concessions selling a variety of Disney merchandise with prices starting from $10 AUD. From what we could see the most popular items were a souvenir bag filled with popcorn ($16), snow cone drink cups ($16), programs ($18) and fairy floss with Mickey ears ($15).

The grand finale was mesmerising with the glitter cannons at the end bringing smiles to everybody, young and old. The show was spectacular and will be thoroughly enjoyed by Disney loving children and adults wanting to take a magical journey down memory lane.
