A little behind in commenting, but I love the "hunting for gems" activity for Snow White, and the "find the crown" activity for Tangled! We haven't done those movies yet, do thanks!

As for Fox and the Hound ideas, all I could think of was some kind of stew--Hunter's Stew?

We did our last Disney Movie Night for a while! Only 5 more days until we go to Disney so we are in the home stretch. Tonight's movie was Lilo and Stitch. We started the night off in the bathroom due to a tornado warning, but we didn't let it get in the way of our fun! I printed off pictures of rides all over Disney and they had to name which park they were in.

After we got out of our safe haven we got on our hula outfits and did some dancing!


Then we played Jamba's Lost Experiments (they went on a scavenger hunt for other experiments).



Then we got our hawaiian names (I found a link in an earlier post that will take you to a name translation site). The kids had a lot more fun with this than I expected!



Our Menu:



The layout:



Our "Stitch Spit" to drink (kids also loved this, just blue kool aid)



And for dessert, we had fruit kabobs and volcano lava cake.



I'm a bit relieved that Disney Movie Nights are on a break for a while, but we cannot wait until we go! If only we had another trip in the works already !

JavArmy, your Lilo & Stitch themed night looks amazing. I can't wait til we start our theme nights again. I have a few months to go as you can see by my WDW countdown.

We did our first movie last night. We have a jar with slips of papers and the names of the movies in them that we are planning on doing. For our first movie DD picked Aristocats. DD invited my MIL over to have dinner with us. She isn't going on vacation with us, but we usually have her over for special meals and DD thought that this was a special meal.

This was our menu:

Thomas O'Mally Croque Monsieur
Scat Cats Favorite Quiche (Shrimp Quiche)
Madame Adelaide Bonfamille Salad
Marie's Chocolate French Silk Pie with Extra Cream

DD set the table with our special cloth napkins, wine glasses and candles. She thought that this made it much more special. We of course just had Sprite in the wine glasses.

DD dressed up and acted as a waitress for the night. She made sure everyone's drinks were full and checked in to see if they needed anything else. It was very cute.

Oh to start the night while we were waiting for the quiche to finsih cooking my DD and MIL danced in the living room. It was quite funny.

DD made everyone movie tickets. MIL was very tired, so she didn't stay for the movie.

We moved the living room furniture around a little bit so that everyone had a better view for the movie. DD had set up a concession stand with popcorn and candy, but we were so full from dinner.

It was funny becuase about 1/2 hour after the movie was over we lost power. Luckily we got through our movie.

Okay DD had MIL picked out our movie for next week and it was Fox and the Hound. Any help with that one would be appreciated.

Thanks

Brilliant ideas! We're going to try Movie Night as well, will certainly help get us through the dark cold Autumn and Winter.

We picked our first country tonight to begin our Epcot nights this weekend. We will do one country per week, & a Mickey themed dinner our final week before leaving. Our first country we picked is the good ole USA. We actually picked Norway, but the movie I have planned for Norway is Polar Express. I thought that would be better closer to Christmas.

Here's the plan for USA:

An All-American BBQ
---bacon cheeseburgers
---baked beans (DS fav)
---cole slaw (DD fav)
---Coca Cola in the classic bottles

Dessert--- either individual strawberry shortcakes (we will be going to HDDR) or ice cream sundaes

Movie--- The Little Mermaid (it's my favorite, & this is the best night for it to fit in)

I printed out a map of Epcot to hang. We will tape each Mickey head country flag in its appropriate place each week.

Aladdin movie night tonight! On the menu is steak kabobs, honey-lime fruit salad, pine nut hummus, pita chips, and tiger-striped sugar cookies. The activity will be decorating the sugar cookies! If DD wants to do something else, I have enough felt to make Magic Carpets for her Aladdin and Jasmine dolls.

We had our first Epcot night yesterday.


The Bobbleheads depicted in this photo in no way reflect our political opinions, but rather that of a little girl who HAD to have a president Bobblehead a few years ago on a trip to Washington, DC





Dessert



We then watched "The Little Mermaid" bc it's MY favorite

After dinner we picked next weeks country...... United Kingdom

I usually just lurk on the Dis but we finally have a trip planned and I was looking for what is new and I found this thread. All I can say is I have found my people! My 10yr daughter's people too

We have our first night this weekend and I think we will do one a week til we go (49 loooooong weeks) I was going to just do one a month, then every other week, and well, we just couldn't choose so few movies. I hope my husband (who is not a fan) makes it

So thank you all

I can soooo sympathize with you on the DH front. We have 10 weeks until our next trip and I've decided tonight I'm doing this once a week until we leave. When I tell me DH about this I know he'll secretly be thinking of ways he can read a book or surf the net while we're watching all the movies.

I am amazed at all the creativity in this thread! Love it!

We will be doing our next movie night on Saturday. Cars2 was picked for our movie. My boys are excited because the last few movies that were picked were princess movies.

We'll be doing our first movie night next Friday! The movie is "Tangled".

The food will be:
Tangled hair with golden sauce (bright yellow spaghetti and yellow alfredo sauce)
Rapunzel's braided breadsticks
Maximus' apples
Flynn's soul-crushing grapes
Snugly duckling soda
Pascal's paintbrushes for dessert

(Will post pics next week!)

My girls are all so excited! We have been living with my parents for a year after my DH was let go from his job 2 years ago. A trip is not in the works for us for a while, so I thought that this would help keep spirits up while DH is working his way up the ladder at Chase!

We have started saving a little at a time for our next trip though...it's good to keep the goal of our next trip out in front of us!!

Just found this thread and it is such a great idea! Thanks to everyone who has contributed ideas. We have a big collection of Disney DVD's. My DD is 2 and just starting to be ready to watch some of the movies. I am going to incorporate some of these ideas for her first viewings.
