Seriously, there’s nothing that I enjoy more than seeing my little boy thoroughly enjoying himself. There’s also no better feeling than when I hear him say ‘Thank you so much Mummy and Daddy’ after a great family day out.
So what made Elliott smile from ear to ear?
It was because he was in an absolute child’s paradise at the Coates Hire Ipswich SuperSprint at Queensland Raceway, one of the V8 Supercar rounds. And it wasn’t because of the V8s roaring around the track or the fact that we had the opportunity to get up close and personal with fast cars and their drivers, it was because Elliott got to hang out at Disney Zone with Lightening McQueen and Mack the Transporter.
What a magical and fun place it was for kids! Jumping castles, ice skating, bike riding, make your own Piston Cup and a real life Lightening McQueen and Mack the Truck. My heart melted as Elliott walked past both of them saying hello, like they were long time pals (considering how many times he’s watched the movie, yes, they probably could be). Check out my short video to see why we loved Disney Zone so much.
One thing I will also say is that the ‘Pit Crew’ staff supervising the Disney Zone area were absolutely lovely. Each Pit Crew member were attentive with the kids, offered to take family photos, they ensured the kids safety on the jumping castles and that every single child had loads of fun.
The Disney Zone will complete a national tour in 2015, appearing at select V8 Supercars rounds and special events across the country.
The Disney Zone fun at the V8 Supercars now makes its way down south to New South Wales and Victoria. Check out the ‘Where’s Mack’ website for more information. http://cars.disney.com.au/wheres-mack
