  • NYC "Princess and the Frog: The Ultimate Disney Event"

    Hello! :wave: This afternoon and friend and I went to the Ziegfeld Theatre to see "The Princess and the Frog" and attend the "Ultimate Disney Event" at Roseland Ballroom afterward.

    The film is delightful. Disney animation is back in fine form, and the Event afterward was also enjoyable, even though we didn't have any children in tow.

    The afternoon was such a good time that I thought I'd post a photo trip report here for you guys so here goes.....





    Dr. Fecilier beckons you inside the theater. No photos allowed indoors though...



    After the film we headed over to Roseland Ballroom a few blocks away from the Ziegfeld:







    The main floor of Roseland was lavishly decorated and consisted mostly of Princess meet and greet areas:





    Sadly, Jasmine was out of action for a few minutes due to a protein spill:



    Sprinkled around the Main and Upper levels of the Ballroom were artifacts from the Walt Disney Archives:



    Vintage tin toys:



    The poisoned caramel apple bicycle helmet from "Enchanted":



    A couple of genuine animation cels:





    Giselle's wedding dress from "Enchanted" was one of several costumes on display. It's a little too big for its case and the detail work is exquisite:





    Experiences for children included an arts and crafts area where one can make paper masks, paper tiaras, and origami frogs, a games area, and an obstacle course called Bayou Adventure:



    We participated in the Learn to be a Disney Animator demonstration. Lead animator for Lawrence, Anthony Darosa, taught us how to draw him:





    I think my drawing of Lawrence kind of came out looking like the Grinch. It's the one on the left:



    We ended our tour of the Experience by meeting several Princesses. On hand were Snow White, Jasmine, Belle, Pocahontas, Mulan, Ariel, Aurora, Cinderella, and of course Tiana:





    All in all it was a wonderful way to spend a rainy afternoon in the City and I'm looking forward to seeing the film again when it goes into general release on December 11.



    It was well worth the $30 general admission price. A more expensive package can be had for $50 which has reserved seating in the theater, some bead trinkets, and a lithograph. This afternoon's matinee was about 1/3 full. Our general admission seats were great; Fifth row, dead center, right in front of the reserved rows of seats in the Orchestra.

    If you find yourself in NYC now until the 13th, give this a GO!

    Thanks for reading! :wave:

    Thanks for sharing! It looks like the set-up was pretty much identical to the one here in Los Angeles.

              Looks like a good time, glad you had fun. *sigh*

              I'm suffering from such wanderlust right now. What I would do for a rainy day in the Big Apple such as yours!

                How did you get tickets? There was mysteriously only crappy seating after it was first announced, then we were only able to buy one ticket at a time?!?! I gave up trying. Badly run, esp. after how easy it is to get El Cap tickets.

                Glad you liked it!!
                Good morning, son
                In twenty years from now
                Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                And I can tell you 'bout today
                And how I picked you up and everything changed
                It was pain
                Sunny days and rain
                I knew you'd feel the same things...

                  I got them through the Disney website with no trouble at all: The Princess and the Frog Ticketing

                  You can also call 1-800-DISNEY6

                  Tickets are also available at the box office. I don't know what ticket availability looks like on evenings and the weekend, but for the 1:00 PM screening yesterday the theater was only about 1/3 full.

                    I went to this when I was in NY last Thursday. The event at Roseland was such a great way to follow the movie!
