My Thoughts on Frozen Live!

I finally made it to DCA to see Frozen!!! At first I wasn’t happy to see Aladdin go…but once I remembered how awesome Disney was and how I knew they wouldn’t let me down I was ok with the change.

FrozenHyperion1280

So on Saturday I walked in the Hyperion Theater with an open mind and heart and let me just say…Frozen blew my mind!!!

frozenlive

There are so many technical things that happen while the show is going on its insane. I mean I’m not doing any spoilers because it’s definitely worth giving it a chance, but it is truly MAGICAL!!!

13395146_1604689509845431_1849389270_n

It does have some spots where I personally thought could be worked on BUT the show just opened so I know in time it’s just going to keep on getting more and more magical!

d8f837fe88ade1b4d7338f8671aafc4c

The actors, actresses and puppeteers did an amazing job portraying their characters the scenery was beautiful and I felt like I was in Arendelle the moment I stepped inside the theater.

DCA_05242016_1098-2-800x445

I really suggest seeing it and giving it a chance, walk in with an open mind and heart and don’t compare it to Aladdin because it’s not Aladdin it is its own show and special in its own way. If you have seen it let me know what your thoughts on it.

Did You Know: Cinderella’s Castle

Did you know,

Cinderellas-Castle.jpg

Cinderella’s Castle is made up of fiber glass and stands 189 ft tall. Now you would think there would be a lot going on in such a bug castle but its actually quite empty. Besides the gift shop and restaurant the only other thing it has is a Deluxe Suit that is awarded to a lucky and random family everyday. The Suit consists of 24 Karat gold tile floors a “magic mirror” that turns into a TV and  much more. I would love to be able to take a peek inside the castle! It sounds so magical!
