Disney’s Frozen – Maggie’s First Movie Theater Experience

by Carrie with Children with 4 comments

Maggie has seen the commercials for Disney’s Frozen for months now and loves checking out the Anna/Elsa toys in the stores. So this past weekend, I finally decided it was time to take Maggie to the movies. She’s five years old – making her way overdue for her first movie theater experience.  Needless to say, she was ECSTATIC.

Disney's Frozen
The entire ten-minute drive to the theater consisted of non-stop talking… and questions. Lots of questions.

“Daddy told me the movie screen would be ginormous! How big is ginormous?”

“What kinds of snacks do they have at movie theaters?”

“Can we pick out our own chair when we get there?”

You get the idea… she was really excited about seeing “the Frozen show at the Disney theater”. I couldn’t believe how excited she was about our adventure. And you should have seen her eyes light up when I bought popcorn – she refused to let me touch it. Thankfully, she gave in once the movie started and shared some with me.

When the movie started, she instantly started talking to the characters – just like they could hear her or something. I could hardly watch the movie, for watching her face – she was mesmerized. Sure this movie included a royal family, but it was centered on family – and that I loved. It was the perfect mom/daughter date.

When the credits started rolling at the end, Maggie started to cry – I thought she was scared because it was dark, but nope – she was crying because it was over. She wanted to know if we could stay and watch her ‘friends Anna and Elsa’ again.

I can tell that Maggie’s first outing to the movie theater won’t be her last – she wants to see Frozen again. And again. I’ve even caught her singing the songs and she asks to listen to the soundtrack every day. She’s hooked… and so am I.  And yes, we’ve already pre-ordered the movie (on Digital HD & 3D Feb. 25 and Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD & On-Demand March 18).  Until then, you can find Maggie and I singing along to our favorite snowman – Olaf.

Have you taken your little one to see Frozen? What did you think?
