The weekend before Christmas we did a Disney Christmas themed morning. We did a breakfast and wore our Disney jammies. Lots of pics so here's the link to them on facebook.

The Mickey toast came from a toast press thingy I got at WDW. It was pretty cheap if I'm remembering right. The two black Mickey head shaped plates came from WDW, the big white Mickey head was given to me by a friend, and the white plates that we ate off of (Donald and Pluto) were also a gift but I'm pretty sure the came from the store Tuesday Morning.

Our first one: Peter Pan

In honor of Princess Tiger Lily creator of this great thread we started with Peter Pan. Here is the menu I hope... I have never tried to post pictures!

Pictures not showing up I am on a mac and just dragging them over but that just gives me words any ideas and I will post them again.

Just in case it does not show up we had:
Peter Pan Pirate ship Pizza's with pixie dust (parmesan cheese)
Cannon balls in enemy ships Crunchy Peas ( think dry roasted)
Cap'n hooks Pirate sword ( fresh baby carrot)
Shred of Peters Suit (fried Okra)
Pixie Dust Fruit Wands
You can fly juice ( sparking pear and apple juice)
Lime Swords ( lime juice frozen fruit bars)

The kids made a treasure hunt of each other and I hid the treasure( gum and a chocolate bar) for each of them when they showed me their final hiding place for each other. The other brother had to wait in the bathroom till this was finished so there would be no peeking! And we played the downloaded game the pp listed. Thanks so much for your wonderful ideas. Usually the thought of this takes me weeks of planing, but a quick trip to the store made this one possible. We will be doing a Monsters Inc nite as I ordered the Monsters Inc game of Life from Amazon. I also found Toy Story Stuff and Cars stuff at the store on sale. Thinking about ordering Lugui's Tire Stacking game form Amazon but wondering if it is all that fun. And one with great Car's board game ideas?

http://www.facebook.com/home.php?sk=...00000752169478

It was a lot of fun . While dinner was cooking the kids took the ghosts and played "Hide and Ghost Seek". Who ever found the ghost with the red head got to hide them next.

Any ideas?
I just saw this cute "acorns" and thought of you...

We did an Under the Sea meal with Finding Nemo and The Little Mermaid as our movie selections. Since we were watching 2 movies we started the party early. Finding Nemo was up first, we watched the movie, took a break and had some snacks which were goldfish and dried apricot Nemos and then moved onto The Little Mermaid. When we were finished with the movies it was craft time, the kids made jellyfish decorations and colored fish cutouts. Then it was time for dinner, on the menu was Flounder's fishsticks, Sebastian's crab claws, Dory's chicken fingers, Nemo's shells and cheese and for dessert Ariel Ocean blue jello and Crush's cupcakes. It was a fun afternoon, we all had a great time and are already planning our next dinner!


Our snacks

Phin & Ferb sounds fun. Post some ideas if you can find them.

I want to do a Harry Potter night. Still trying to brainstorm that one.

I can't wait to start doing these movie nights to countdown to our trip. We just booked it tonight, so yeah, now I can start on the fun stuff. I've been doing crazy movie nights for my kids for a year or two, but now I am excited to do them as Disney countdowns. Thanks for all the great ideas, very inspirational. Hopefully I'll contribute soon!

Just to give you a quick way to do the first.... We made bones for my DD's Halloween party. Buy the can of breadstick dough from Pillsbury or whatever. On each end, snip down the middle just a little bit then fan out the ends when you put them on the pan to bake. They turned out great.

There's also the Scooby Snacks graham crackers that are bone shaped.
