I plan on using some of these ideas for themed weeks, to give the kids some activities to do, or else it will be one looooooong summer.

Thanks again ladies!!
These nights are so much fun, and they really pass the time!

We are going to make a countdown chain (88 days to go), make a list of our top 5 favorite things we want to do in each park during our trip and try to come up with a few pixie dusting opportunities (random acts of kindness) that we can do in WDW to help spread the magic.
Love the special mickey plates and cups...what a great idea to do pixie dusting...please share the ideas that your family comes up with!

This thread is great! We already do a family movie night every week & 9 times out of 10 it's a disney movie (the kids take turns choosing the movie). I can't wait to incorporate some of these ideas into our weekly family movie night!

From a granddaughter's birthday yesterday - a Little Mermaid theme.

The birthday girl posing pre-party time.



Welcome to the ocean!



Mermaids arriving.



Grandchild #3 is that baby bump on my daughter (on the floor).

The craft was a picture frame with themed foam stickers.





Outside play.



Snackish things.



Treasure hunt.

The list of things to find was written by the big kindergarten sister.





Sweet little hands loved digging in the sand to find the next treasure called.



Gift table.



Cake and ice cream (in little sand pails).





Presents.



Photo op for each girl. The pictures will be given to them to put in their frames.



Goody bags for each mermaid to take home.



It was very simple and easy, and the little girls enjoyed themselves.

We did a Three Caballeros night last night, so fun!! We played Donde Esta Donald? (where is Donald, thanks to idea here!) and we colored Mexican hat pictures!
The menu wasn't so on point, but we had American Chop Suey and each had 3 mini cupcakes.

Hi all! I apologize if this has been asked a lot, but with the search down and the fact that it's been awhile since I've been on here I'm hoping someone remembers...

A few months back (probably many, yikes) hadn't someone started a continuation of the first post indexing each movie. If so, does anyone know where it is? I'm finally making plans for our first movie night and we're doing Tangled. Of course, it's the one movie I haven't seen so I'm searching for ideas. Got the Family Fun link so that's helping! Just gotta figure out the food.

Thanks!!

Watercolors with personalized liners

Welcome to the Snuggly Duckling!











We enjoyed braided sandwiches (pizza and ham and cheese), cheese & crackers, preztel ducklings, pb&j ducklings, grapes, strawberries, blueberries and root beer. I wanted to make hazelnut soup, but didn't figure it'd go over very well at a 4 year old's birthday party so I made "fake" soup instead. I put some butterscotch pudding in little cups and sprinked it with hazelnuts. Don't you just love our plates!!??

The dessert table... brace yourself for awesomeness.



I did the painting myself. *swoon* It's now hanging in DDs bedroom, along with the curtains and lanterns. I couldn't possibly throw it away!

















I went with an art theme for the dessert table, since Rapunzel loves to paint. We enjoyed Jello boats, paint palette sugar cookies, Rice Krispie Treat paint brushes, paint brush pretzel rods, Magic Golden Flower punch, Maximus' apple cake pops, painted popcorn, marshmallow pop paint buckets and mini pies. I just love all the colors!

To be concluded....

Activities - The kids painted canvas' with an initial sticker on them. After they were painted, we removed the sticker.





We did a balloon pinata. The kids popped some of Maximus' apples and there were toys, candy and confetti inside.





And lastly, I made sun banners for over the painting tables.



We're going to Disney again in June, so I'm going to start up our movie nights again soon. I'm so excited! The kids don't know we're going. I'm hoping to do one of those BIG reveals the morning we leave.

I agree! I love even just the bits and pieces I've seen and the short Happily Ever after is so cute. DD9 went through a long stage of refusing to watch most animated movies and particularly princess ones in fear that there would be scary parts. She's finally made it past that and really wants to see it now. She got it for Easter so I'm more than ready to finally watch it!

Yay, search is back! Now I'm armed with my ideas and ready to go for Friday. I'll try to remember to take pictures. Of course, right after I decided to do Tangled we started on some Africa stuff for schoolwork so I guess I should really do Lion King or something, but oh well. We'll do that when we get to the Camp Minnie-Mickey themed section of our massive WDW unit study. DD9 has been dying to see Tangled so I really want to do it first.
