TIM Gentle's girls spotted the Disney On Ice bus in Bendigo on Saturday and demanded their dad turn around straight away.
The girls ZoZo, 3, and Sammie, 4, are big Disney princess fans.
Tim Gentle said he was happy to see the girls so excited.
"We've been to the show the last few years. They couldn't believe their eyes when they saw the bus,'' he said.
"They get all dressed up as Cinderella or Ariel or Belle. This show gives them the opportunity to see them in real life."
Mr Gentle said new Disney movies such as Frozen and Tangled were good for the girls.
"The female is turning out to be the heroine,'' he said.
"That's what I think is great about Disney.
"They aren't just a Sleeping Beauty anymore. The female has taken on the heroine role, it's no longer traditional."
The bus will travel to Castlemaine, Kyneton and Woodend in coming days as part of a national tour.
