Monsters University: Scare School at the Disney Store

While we were visiting my family in Massachusetts, we found out that the local Disney Store was holding a special Monsters University event: Scare School!

The website site said: “Children age 3+ are invited to attend the School of Scaring and learn the fine art of scaring during a Scare Approaches 101 class. Before class, students will attend a Scream Orientation, listen to a special message from the Dean of the School of Scaring Abigail Hardscrabble, and receive a Monsters University identification card. Plus, each student who attends will also receive an official Monsters University gift.”

Sounded fun, so we headed to the mall and were there for the 10:30 class.

At the back of the store, a countdown to the class was on the movie screen.

When it was time to begin, a cast member came back to lead the class. She did some Monsters U jokes and trivia to warm us up.

Scarlett was into it. Luke was a bit unsure (he is suspicious of monsters.) They sat on the floor with the other eager kids.

Before learning to scare, the kids got ID cards. They picked a monster photo and name.

Predictably, Scarlett picked a pink monster and Luke picked a green one. They were supposed to use their first name and the first letter of their last name to make a monster name. Neither kid could figure out how to do that, so Tom and I named them” Luke AHHHH! and Scar Achnid.

Once the video started, Luke decided to become a Scare School drop out. Instead he went to the LEGO store, and got himself some Jake and The Neverland Pirates Duplo blocks.

Scarlett and I stayed behind to learn Scary Feet, roaring and even the “Aunt Phyllis”. She earned her very own Monsters University penant!


She also walked away with a Sleeping Beauty bean bag doll so it was a good time all around.
