    The show in the Walt Disney Theatre this night was Twice Charmed. Twice Charmed is unique to the Disney Magic, the Disney Wonder also has its own unique show, Toy Story:The Musical.

    Twice Charmed is a Cinderella story, pretty similar to the movie Cinderella III except this show existed before that movie came out. I am going to put the plot in white font, if you want to read what the show is about just highlight over it. If you don't want to be spoiled on the plot just skip down to the pictures. Basic plot: Cinderella and Prince Charming get married, the Evil Stepmother is jealous and a Wicked Fairy Godfather shows up and grants her wish to turn back time. She then smashes the glass slipper that Cinderella had and then she has the Fairy Godfather shrink her and then she locks her in her room so that they don't find her. The Prince then sets up a search for his mysterious maiden from the ball but eventually gives up as he figures she does not want to be found. He holds another ball where he will pick a bride, Cinderella shows up in her maid clothes, sings a song and he sees that she is the one he has been looking for. The Evil Fairy Godfather turns up and isn't really evil after all he just likes to play tricks and he ends up turning on the step-family. The Fairy Godmother then shows up and transforms Cinderella's clothes into a wedding dress, it is also revealed that she is the King's Fairy Godmother as well. :laughing: They all live happily ever after.

    Mom and I chose seats in the same area that we sat the night before. Right before the show started this enormous man came and sat in the seat right in front of me. Well I got crushed! The seat was obviously broken as it reclined much farther than it should have and it totally crushed my legs. I had to sit at an awkward angle in order to free them and even then I was still pretty crammed. Unfortunately this happened right before the show so there were no other seats that I could get up and move to. Let's just say I was very uncomfortable for the nest 45 minutes!

    After the show our wonderful cruise director, Brent, came out and told us in his wonderful Australian accent all about the activities going on that night and he got us pumped for our first port that we would be arriving at in the morning. :woohoo:

    I really liked this show, the music was great and so was the acting. The storyline was also entertaining. Another show that is a must see!


    Here are some YouTube videos I found of the show. They show the whole thing aside from the first 5 minutes or so. It was the best quality I could find and you really aren't missing much, just the beginning scene.

    Lessa, you take such great pics. It was cool to see these and read about the show since we actually missed it.
    Sorry to hear about the guy crushing your legs. Did he not realize it? I'm glad you enjoyed the show in spite of it.
    Those seats can be kinda funny. I know they actually scared me the first few times when I didn't realize that they "reclined".

    Brent is pretty awesome isn't he? I LOVED his accent, and he was a pretty fun guy. Much better than the cruise directors we had on the Wonder!

    Nope he had no idea he was crushing me, at least he didn't seem to and I didn't want to embarrass him by pointing it out. The seat was obviously broken and there was nothing that could be done about it at that point so I just sucked it up. On future nights I made sure to test the chair in front of me before I sat down for good to make sure it wouldn't happen again!

    I loved every show we saw on the cruise, they were all so well done. Disney really knows how to do entertainment.


    Yep, lots and lots and lots of pics from the ports coming soon. ;)

    The show seems cool, although I did not really care for Cinderella 3.

    I didn't really like C3 either but this show was much better. Really aside from the stepmother getting time turned back there is not that much in common between the two.



    Thanks, I think I have to rank the three shows as 1)Disney Dreams 2) Golden Mickeys 3)Twice Charmed

    Yeah, it was just a wee bit awkward and uncomfortable getting crammed into my seat like that. I didn't want to miss the show though!
