Before I had kids, I loved going to the cinema, if I liked the look of the film I would just go, it was so simple. Now I have young children, there has to be more thought put into a visit to the cinema, especially a first visit.
I was fortunate enough to get tickets for A Disney Junior Party, which was a celebration at Odeon Cinemas, this seemed like the perfect opportunity to introduce my twin boys to the big screen.
The celebration was aimed at children under 7 and took place on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th January at participating Odeon cinemas across the UK, it was completely free!
The one hour interactive screening, included, never seen before episodes of The Lion Guard, my boys favourite show, and Doc McStuffin’s Toy Hospital. There was also the opportunity for children (and parents) to dance a-long and play games with Mickey Mouse.
The boys were rather excited when I told them of our visit, and when Saturday arrived they were ready and raring to go with plenty of time to spare, I wish school mornings were as easy.
Mal and Jak loved their first visit, and I think that was because they were encouraged to move around, dance and shout out at different points of the show, this stopped them getting restless and made it so much more enjoyable for them.
I think we will hold off on going to watch any lengthy blockbusters until the twins are quite a bit older, but Odeon do have screenings Saturday and Sunday mornings especially for young children and families, so our next visit will be very soon.
