I had planned to start my day making some real Mickey waffles. I had even purchased a package of Golden Malt waffle mix which is what they use in Disney World to make the waffles.
Unfortunately, I had to make an unscheduled stop at my doctor’s office (I am fine – it was an insurance issue that I had to handle in person), which is a 40 minute drive each way. So that took up my morning and meant no Mickey waffles today. 😦
But the real “Disney” attraction was planned for the evening.
I had been looking around for Disney activities that I could do at home and found that a local theater was doing the Broadway production of the Little Mermaid. There was only three weeks left in the run, so my husband and I decided to make it our Valentine’s day evening event.
Our first stop was Babylon Burger Bar for dinner. They have a big selection of burgers with all different toppings. Mine had goat cheese, bacon and a Cabernet sauce. They are also known for their crazy shakes so we shared their Valentine’s shake. It was a strawberry milkshake with jelly beans stuck in chocolate around the outside of the glass, whipped cream with Sweet Tart hearts and an entire piece of red velvet cake on top. So good!
The Arglye Theatre was right across the street from the restaurant. It is relatively new and their productions use Actor’s Equity performers so it was a good quality show.
The Little Mermaid ran on Broadway from January 2007 – August 2009. At that time, I wasn’t at a place in life that I could go to shows very often so I never got to see it.
This was the stage set up as we entered and ocean sounds played the whole time until the show started.
Overall, I really liked the production. I always like to hear the new songs that were included in the Broadway versions. There were a few that stuck out to me that I plan to add to my Spotify playlist. It didn’t think Under the Sea was as big of a production number as I would have liked but that may have just been this production.
The story was basically the same with some tweaks. For example, Ursula was King Triton’s sister and she had been banished by him for her bad behavior. She targeted Ariel as a way to get back at him.
Overall, it was an enjoyable evening and with that Disney Day #2 is in the books.
Coming up will be actual Disney Days in the parks and on a Disney Cruise – the way I really like to do Disney Days!
