Wreck-It Ralph

Here's some Wreck-It Ralph ideas... Hope they help!

Dinner ideas:
- Ralph's Meatloaf brick (Fix-It-Felix Jr)
- Surge Protector Sliders (Game Central Station)
- Dr Eggman Salad (Sonic)
- Onion Rings or some other "ring" type food (Sonic)
- Cherries (Pacman)
- Root Beer (Tapper)
- Sour Bill's Lemonade (Sugar Rush)

Dessert ideas:
- Power-boosting Pie (baked by Nicelanders in Fix-it-Felix Jr)
- Wynnchel & Duncan donuts (Donut Policemen of Sugar Rush)

Activities:
- Earn Hero medals
- Play video games
- Make & decorate graham cracker go-karts (with candy from Sugar Rush)
- Diet coke & mento eruptions (OUTSIDE)
- Watch Wreck-It Ralph

I'm sure I can think of more... But my brain is fried right now!

I've started a Pinterest page for Wreck it Ralph if anyone's interested in following. I found a few more ideas.

I took a picture of our menu beside our countdown board tonight. We will be enjoying The Princess & The Frog on Monday evening! I can't wait

Glad we are not the only ones. It is just DH and I (both early/mid 40s) and our kids are grown so we do movie nights for just us. Sometimes the kids (23 & 24) join us. We don't do a craft but normally go around and state what we want to do on an upcoming trip to WDW or a favorite memory!

We're starting our countdown to our trip to WDW in June

I convinced DH to do a movie night on the first Saturday of each month until we leave. Woo hoo! I mentioned doing some related food and maybe an activity and he was okay with it. Very excited.

I'm thinking of doing Lilo and Stitch for the first movie. ODD is 6 and MDD is 3; I think it will be good for both of them. And, we've been watching a lot of Imagination Movers and Nina is from Hawaii - and they love Nina!

I look forward to looking back at all of your wonderful ideas

Lion King Movie Night

Tonight for our Disney Dinner and Movie Night we watched "The Lion King."





Dinner was so yummy, I think the best yet but the kiddos would disagree lol but other than the Zebra meat they liked everything else. & btw I absoultly love my new Cruella mug I bought a the Disney Store for only $5.99!!! (=






For our craft we did animal mask, but unfortunately I didn't notice the package of mask did not come with string so we couldn't actually wear them but still had lots of fun tho ( :



And for our activity we had a Safari Scavenger Hunt! The kids really enjoyed this even tho it was simple as hiding savannah animals and cheap on the budget. Here is my DD Alexis (who will be 5 next month!) searching for the safari animals (:






And the boys had lots of fun too! =D







Next week's Disney Dinner & Movie Night is.......101 Dalmatians (my DD is sooooo excited!)

First Movie Night!

We are going to Disney World in June and I promised my two DD (9 and 3) that we would have a Disney movie night every Friday until we leave. I have been planning and planning to make themed menus and used tons of ideas that I found here! And the hubs is totally on board and has promised to get into it just as much as the rest of us!

So tonight was the first night...Cinderella!

I made a banner that said 'Dreams really do come true!' and put it above the doorway to our dining room. I bought a Cinderella party tablecover and covered the table. I found a Disney Princess Snow mobile craft on the Disney Family website as well as some tiny crowns. DD9 and I cut them all out (setting aside the other princesses for their own nights) and hung them above our buffet. I decorated the buffet with my girls' Cinderella dolls, books, and castle.

While I cooked, the girls colored Cinderella pictures (also from Disney Family).

The menu? Some ideas came from here and several blogs that I adapted.

Castle sandwiches (PBJ)
Le Cellier Steaks (I know-wrong pavilion-but I needed a fancy name)
Princess Pasta Salad
Midnight Potatoes (just baked potatoes-again, cute name necessary)
Bippity Boppity Brew (strawberry lemon Hawaiian punch, Sprite)
Princess Floats (the same brew, but over ice cream-YUMMM!)

Of course, the 3 year old wouldn't touch the Bippity Boppity Brew and preferred milk but she and sister had cute Cinderella cups to drink from.

After dinner, I surprised them all with the Disney Scene It! Magical Moments game that I had ordered and hidden from them. We are watching the movie right now and will be playing the game afterwards...if everyone is still awake. It may have to wait until tomorrow night.

I typed the menu and included Cinderella clipart. I also included the crafts and activities that we did (the mobile, coloring sheets, and Scene It! game) so everyone knew what was in store for the evening. At the top I put a countdown so everyone knows how many days left before departure: 135!!!

It was great family time and a great way to start our countdown!

Next week: CARS!!!

I just LOVE this thread - thankyou princesstigerlilly and everyone who has posted super ideas!

I'm up to page 91 after 2 evenings of reading...I'll finish the rest tmx lol

I am doing our first Disney Theme night on Saturday when it will be 102 days til we visit the magic for our first time.

The theme will be Lady & the Tramp & we will watch the film first as DD 4 hasn't seen it yet & DS 11 for a long time!

Order of the day:

Ballet, home, changed, snack, watch the film, make Lady & the Tramp mini 3d figures & table latern (from the disney family site), make hand prints and decorate them, then make Spaghetti and Meatball cakes.
Dinner will be a naughty cheese, butter, garlic and cream sauce with veggies & spaghetti pasta (DD doesn't eat red meat) followed by the cakes made earlier. Finally before bed we'll play the roll the ball with your nose game

I'm planning on doing one every weekend til we go away & may manage to sneak a few mid week ones in aswell.

We are doing our first theme night tomorrow - the Muppet Movie. DH is a huge muppets fan, and we haven't seen the movie yet so it will be new to all of us.

DH wants to have ham (nut! ) and we're stumped for the rest. I'll have to look up some ideas. i found some confetti angel food cake to make a rainbow connection cake for dessert. We won't have time to do an activity, but popping popcorn and snuggling under blankets is just fine by my girls
