The Philadelphia Wings!

Written By ..  Alexandra Berry
The lights! The Sounds! The Lacrosse! You could practically taste the excitement as the Philadelphia Wings lost their home opener 12-11 to the Buffalo Bandits in overtime.  Ecstatic fans were everywhere you looked, and I was lucky enough to be one of them!
My seats were fantastic! I could see every play, every hit and every goal!  As a matter of fact, I was so close to the action, I was practically on the turf. I felt like I  was on the bench with the team.
The Philadelphia Wings made sure to make the intense game a family friendly experience in many ways.  Every break in the game  held a way to get the fans even more involved. There were free give-a-ways, young lacrosse players showing off their skills, and there was even a hot dog eating contest.  Literally, there was something for everyone in the family to enjoy!
I encourage anyone to go see a Philadelphia Wings game! It’s not just an incredible game of lacrosse, but a one-of-a-kind experience.

Disney on Ice: Let’s Celebrate

I had the pleasure of escorting three lovely little princesses to the opening night performance of Disney on Ice: Let’s Celebrate and once again, Disney really delivers.

The show started off with a warm welcome, Be Our Guest by Lumiere, and featured a wide cast of characters from Cinderella, Alladin, The Little Mermaid, Snow White, Alice and Wonderland and many more.  Of course, the usual hosts of the show, Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Daisy were on hand to lead us on our night full of flawless skating and entertaining adventures celebrating each of the special days.

If you fancy the evil villains in any of the Disney movies, you won’t be disappointed with the next act featuring some of the most famous “bad guys”.  Shouts of “I love you Pumpkin King” and “Cruella is awesome” could be heard throughout the arena following the entrance of each of the famous villains.

Next up is a lesson is love for Minnie who gets a visit from her own fairy godmother.  And who better to help Minnie on her quest to find true love than the most beloved princesses of all time; Jasmin, Ariel, Belle, Cinderalla, Tiana and Snow White.

Lilo and Stitch are H-O-T as the ice is lit on fire and hula dancers glide effortlessly over the ice while Goofy surfs his way into the audience.

Wizard Mickey works his magic with his brooms to clean up the ice and invites you to join him on exotic adventures to Hawaii, Brazil, Japan, China and back to New Orleans as he tries to figure out how to use his magical travelling machine.

The show wouldn’t be complete without celebrating Christmas and having a special visit from the jolly old fellow himself, Santa Goofy!

Judging from the smiles and trance-like eyes of my little princesses throughout the entire 2 hours, it is safe to say this show is nothing short of spectacular. The entire show features some jaw dropping moves by the talented ice skaters and incredible special effects for all to enjoy.

It was hard to pick my favorite part of the show, but with tickets starting at just $18 and seats still available for most shows, you still have time to go and pick your own favorite.

Visit Disney on Ice for show times and ticket availability.

Mama about Town and the Little Women do Disney Junior Live

by Annie McCourt-Makaron

First, let me say that the old saying, “there is no such thing as a small part,” totally applies to this musical! The action is nonstop as the characters, even the minor roles, are constantly moving during both Acts of Disney Junior Live; it was a true Pirate and Princess Adventure!

Act I begins with Sofia the First, her parents and siblings, and of course Bailywick the Butler – voiced by the amazing Tim Gunn– preparing for guests coming to the castle for a special ball. As the youngest, per tradition, Sofia must present each guest with a memorable one-of-a-kind gift. Hilarity ensues as Sofia uses her magic to  prepare one over the top gift after another but none of them are perfect. Finally, after a surprise visit from none other than Cinderella, a little help from the teaching witches and several toe-tapping musical numbers, Sofia realizes that her voice is the gift she can share with everyone. The last number includes loads of magical bubbles, the entire cast and a costume change by Sofia that is not to be missed! Hint: have you ever seen a 20 foot tall ball gown? My six and eight year old Little Women were on the edges of their seats. Even my DH, Jack, said, “that was pretty cool.”

Act II was a foot-stomping jolly pirate adventure with Jake and the Neverland Pirates.  There was even a, “Stomp,” style tap dance number with buckets and mops as props! The Little Women are not huge Jack fans, but the action on the, “boat,” kept them silent with eyes glued to the stage. There was real action from one end of the stage to the other and the lead actors and actresses made the show truly inter-active! To top it off, there was a surprise visit from Tinkerbell and Peter Pan! As my six year old exclaimed, “there is Tink and Pan– in real life!”   Peter truly amazed with his acrobatic feats as he flipped from one side of the stage to the other! Captain Hook was just scary enough to keep the action exciting, but silly enough to not frighten the smaller audience members! He even battles some flying fish! Again, the last number in this Act includes some spectacular surprises!

There were surprises galore from the first notes of Doc McStuffin’s surprise appearance, through Sofia’s reign, then to the moment Jake and the Neverland Pirates found out that the real treasure is friendship! We even heard from the first couple of Disney, Mickey and Minnie!

The Sun National Center in Trenton is a clean and well organized arena and the staff are courteous and very helpful. The food is a little bit on the pricey side and there were not a lot of snack options; however, this happens in most large venues. If cost is important to you, I recommend eating before the show and maybe splurging on one of the more affordable options during the 15 minute intermission between the two Acts. Our family of four had two cheese-steaks, two fries and two bottles of water for $29! Yet, we later bought a huge funnel cake to split for only $5! Sun National Center does not allow any outside food (although we saw a few toddler cups and bottles,); so, plan accordingly.

There was parking available directly in front of the main entrance for only $10 and there was free parking at the overflow lot and on the side streets. The area is well-lit and there were traffic police on hand to cross pedestrians and help direct traffic.

Bottom line, the show was fabulous enough to entertain the Little Women, dear husband and myself for an hour and 30 minutes. With tickets starting at only $25 and an excellent venue, this is a very recommendable and affordable option for a super special family night out!
