We got there early and met our friends. We were expecting a lot and unfortunately the pre-show didn't really live up to our expectations. The "tea party" was no more than some hot, sticky cookies and lemonade, the "give-aways" were American Girl Dolls that we had to stand in line just to put in our raffle tickets for and the "craft" was putting stickers on a luggage tag. The girls were happiest at a small games station with hopscotch and chalk. We had seen what there was to see within an hour. A few friends decided to go home but MiniM.E. was set on seeing the ballerinas.
I am so glad we stayed because the ballet was definitely the highlight of the trip and we stayed until 10!
