Moody Dad On A Train
We were waiting for our train at the station, when suddenly the London bound train going to Wembley screeched to a halt.
It was packed with Wolves fans drinking beers at 10.30 am. Thank goodness we weren’t getting on THAT train I thought.
Then our train pulled up….it looked pretty busy. Now, I paid £70 and was annoyed to find that I couldn’t even sit down. Instead we stood in the carriage near the toilet, with 12 other people. There was more space in the loo.
I found myself moaning all the way to the next stop.
I joked that we should have stood in the toilets, at least we’d get a seat.
Then at the next stop, two passenger departed, but loads got on.
Suddenly the luxury of having a little bit of space seemed a distant memory as now we were like sardines, crammed into a tin can. To drown out the whining from my daughter who was both thirsty and now wanted a seat we played eye spy.
I spy with my little eye, something beginning with,
T – Train?

Other answers were
D – Door
WLG – Whining little girl
How To Get There
On arrival at Birmingham International, head towards the exit and look for signs to the NEC.
It takes 10 minutes or so to make your way to the NEC, then, make your way to the Resorts arena.
There are plenty of toilets dotted about and opposite the arena is a huge shopping complex with lots of restaurants and shops, obviously.
Tip alert: Arrive nice and early. People were still getting seated even once the show had actually started. Don’t spoil it for everyone, get there early guys!
Inside the Resorts arena, you can grab food, drinks, Disney merch or stop for a quick wee AGAIN!
Tip alert: The main toilets were very busy. Head towards the stage and there are loads of quiet toilets to choose from.
Before The Show Starts..
On your ticket you will see an area and seat numbers. Head to the area, for us it was lower block 9, and the helpful staff will guide you to your seat.
One more thing before I talk about the show, I must tell you about this. There actually is a dress code. As Disney is a family orientated brand they ask that you don’t show to much flesh and wear smart attire, no ripped jeans.
Lucky I didn’t wear my arseless chaps!
I was wearing jeans and a jumper, so I’m sure you’ll be fine.
The Wait Is Over
There was a countdown to the show, “Show starts in 5 mins!” & a short bit of great entertainment before the show kicked off.
Tip alert: If your child doesn’t like loudness, take some ear defence. It can be noisy once the show starts.
So, what did we make of the show.
All of your favourite Disney characters and lots of fun.
Take a look at some of my favourite bits.
This show featured,
& lots more.
Whether you love to get up and dance, enjoy singing or (like me) just want to sit and watch, there is something for everyone.
This would make a great birthday treat for any Disney fans out there.
We were kindly invited by Disney to review this show.
