Share ahead with the kids your budget. Dolls are $35 , lite wands $30 , snow balls in a plastic cup with lid and logo $12. and it is set up to make you feel bad if your don't purchase and the kid to feel left out if you don't buy. Have a discussion ahead and help kids see the set up or save their allowance for the goodies.

It was fun. I liked the staging which is always impressive but if you have done the frozen experance in California adventure you get the same experance. Of course my daughter loved it. My advice for what it is worth, BART is not worth the walk, especially after the show when your kids are tired and on a sugar rush, just pay for parking. Eat before but get there early to avoid the crowds going through the metal detectors. Don't bring anything metal. Bring your own dollar store candy, yes they go through your stuff but they are looking for candy. While at the dollar store buy some wands or whatever you your kid wants because otherwise you are paying $28 for a light up wand you could have gotten for $1. Also don't bring a stroller, they sent allowed inside and it holds up the line getting in. Oh and the lighting prevents decent pictures of characters so do a shoot with the kids at the tide photo booth before the show and if you are going to spend more money the program is the best way to get pictures you can see $20. Hope that helps. Have fun!

Description

The Golden State Warriors began their history as the Philadelphia Warriors, which they remained until 1962. Today the Warriors play in the Arena in Oakland, California, and wear jerseys of blue, white, and gold.

The Philadelphia Warriors won the first championship of the Basketball Association of America (BAA), the forerunner of the NBA, in 1947 with a team that featured high-scoring guard Joe Fulks. In 1956 the Warriors won their first NBA title, sparked by future Hall of Fame members Paul Arizin and Neil Johnston. A second NBA title came in 1975 behind the high-scoring trio of Rick Barry, Clifford Ray, and Jamaal Wilkes. While playing for the Warriors in 1962, basketball legend Wilt Chamberlain set an NBA single-game record by scoring 100 points.

The Warriors relocated to San Francisco, California, in 1962, after their owner sold the club to a group of investors. With Chamberlain, guard Guy Rogers, and center Nate Thurman, the San Francisco Warriors won the Western Division in 1964 before falling to the Celtics in the NBA Finals. The next season the Warriors traded Chamberlain to the Philadelphia 76ers and finished poorly. Sharp-shooting rookie guard Rick Barry joined the club in the 1965-66 season and led the league in scoring, averaging 35.6 points per game. That season the Warriors again won the Western Division, but they were defeated in the NBA Finals by their former star Chamberlain and the 76ers.

Barry moved to the rival American Basketball Association (ABA) in 1967, and Warriors’ attendance declined through the late 1960s. In 1971 the team moved to Oakland and took the name Golden State Warriors. Barry rejoined the Warriors in the 1972-73 season, and in 1975 the Warriors won the Western Conference championship with Barry, rookie forward Jamaal Wilkes, and center Clifford Ray. The trio of stars was guided by head coach Alvin Attles, who emphasized a team-oriented strategy. In the NBA Finals the Warriors defeated the Washington Bullets in an upset for the NBA crown.

Led by head coach Don Nelson, the team put together a fast-paced attack in the late 1980s and early 1990s, spurred by high-scoring guards Tim Hardaway and Mitch Richmond and forward Chris Mullen. In 1989 guard Sarunas Marciulionis joined the Warriors as the first NBA player from the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). Forward Chris Webber emerged as an NBA standout during the 1993-94 season.

Today the team features a strong lineup of players, including such standouts as Jason Richardson, Mike Dunleavy and Derek Fisher. With strong, young talent, the Warriors play up-tempo and exciting basketball that is sure to delight fans of all ages.
