Time Warner Cable hosted a fun event for kids at Lincoln Center to celebrate the launch of Disney's newest channel, Disney Junior.
I took my niece, Layla, and she had a ball. There were always activities around to accommodate her short attention span.
This Disney Junior event was so much fun because the kids were the focus. There were tons of kid-friendly snacks, like mini cheese sandwiches, hotdogs, hamburgers, ice-cream and popcorn. The food was also in small bite-size portions so it was manageable for the kids. It was a kids' dream party.
There were character appearances by Jake, Minnie Mouse and Mickey Mouse among others. I loved how organized the system for picture taking was. Upon checking in, you chose a wrist band according to which character you wanted to take pictures with. They wrote the time the character would be present on the wristband. This made the line to take the pictures so much shorter.
There was also a coloring station and a craft station, where kids got to decorate treasure chests for Jake.
I loved the ongoing dance party in one corner of the tent. Equipped with a DJ and a hype-girl, the kids were dancing all day.
Disney Junior is a 24-hour channel for kids ages 2-7. Some of their standout shows include Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Doc McStuffins and Jake and The Never Land Pirates.
The premiere of Doc McStuffins became the #1 most-watched preschool series launch in cable TV history in Adults 18-49 so parents are watching, too.
