Activities - Make Your Own Ugly Bug Ball (use modeling clay or even playdoh, and have everyone make their own ugly bug caterpillar, cricket, butterfly, etc. to bring to the ball!)
The Feminimity Race (Time each contestant to see who has the fastest time and is the winner! Set up as a relay, and for the first task the player must walk across the room with a book on her head, next time walk across the room in a pair of Mom's heels, and for the last leg the player must make an outfit complete with accessories (jewelry, belts, etc.) from a cardboard box filled with cast-off options.)
Throw an old-fashioned ice cream social for friends or your neighborhood just like the Carey's did! Buy a few tubs of ice cream and all the toppings you love (bananas, whipped cream, nuts, cherries, marshmallow topping, caramel, etc.) and set them out for all. Don't forget a cooler filled with ice to keep the ice cream cool. Set up various lawn games for your guests like croquet, bocce ball, horseshoes, etc.

**Side note: One of my all time favorites! As of this post, the whole movie can be viewed on Youtube.**

I LOVE this movie, now I may have found a way that my boys will watch it with me.
I have been wanting to try all of the ideas found on this thread but we have only done one so far, this one is going to be our next friday night family night.

Since we are not leaving until Nov. we are doing a Halloween pary too. We are also doing a theme party every other week. My girls love the idea of having a party every other week. We have a POTC & Mulan party planned first. All thanks to the ideas found on this thread!!!

Pollyanna

Movie - Pollyanna

Nancy's Green Bean Casserole
http://www.campbellkitchen.com/recip...astIndex=false
Orphan's Bazaar Lemon Pudding Cake
http://southernfood.about.com/od/lem.../r/bl1207h.htm

Activities - Mrs. Snow's Patchwork Quilt (buy various colors of fleece from local fabric store or Wal-Mart craft section. Cut into 8x8" squares, and make 2" fringe around all corners of squares. Knot one side of a square to another, until you have made a quilt of the desired size. Make single knots out of the outside fringe. A fun family activity with a family keepsake in the process. A more complex version: Using home printer transfer paper, print your favorite family photos onto the transfer paper and iron on to cotton fabric squares.

Yet another from my DD

Movie: Beauty and the Beast

Menu:
parmesean-crusted pork chops http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/fo...E-CRUST-104711
rissoto (I just make a package, it may not be Freench but I think it would be a good match )
julienne vegetables (carrots, ect)

---or---

coq au vin over mashed potato http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/reci..._11724,00.html

dessert: eclairs (store bought from a good bakery is a heck a of a lot easier)

(classic french)

For the table setting, see if you can get roses and serve drinks out of teacups.

activites:

paper dolls: This one is more geared towards the girls. Go online and print out some pics of Belle. Draw and cut out a few different shapes of dresses (with little tabs to fold over) and have the kids color them in. As an alternative for the boys, here are some coloring pages. http://www.coloring-book.info/colori...page.php?id=78
plant a rose garden: Go to a nursery and buy a container (size is your chocie) along with some seeds, or go outside and plant out there. This can be not only a fun activity for the night, but also for the Summer.
create a portrait of beast: In the movie, Belle finds a ripped up portrait. To keep it relatively inexpensive (at least comared to what a canvas would be), buy some water color paints and paper. The kids can either draw beast or him as a human.

Another-

Move: Valiant
Menu:
chicken and leek pie
recipe from Rose & Crownhttp://www.allearsnet.com/din/rec_clp.htm
my favorite crust recipe http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/fo...E-CRUST-104683
(you could do the chicken pot pie if you don't think the kids don't like leek)

shortbread cookies http://familyfun.go.com/recipes/fami...ffengland.html

Serve dessert with either tea or apple juice and have "evening" tea. It could also be a snack before dinner.

activities:
capture the note: A variation of capture the flag, instead of using a flag use a little message. Make medals out of cardboard (paint/color them gold if you wish) and award each child just for playing fairly and doing a great job or for what they did in the game. Write what they are being awarded for in black and punch a hole in it so you can put a ribbon through it
paper airplane contest: Have everyone make three different paper airplanes and race them. Award the fastest, most fuel efficient (slowest), most creative, etc with ribbons. Just take some basic inch-wide ribbon and write on it with gold sharpie. Cut it about about 4 inches long and pin it on. So nobody feels left out, you could have them name each airplane and award the airplane itself, not the creator.

DCL night!
Prepare everyone for the cruise!


movie: Cruise Planning DVD

menu: most of these recipes are from Parrot Cay

drinks:
pina coladas (virgin for the kids obviously) and other frozen concoctions

appetizers:
chilled mango and orange soup: http://allears.net/din/rec_oms.htm
crab cakes: (this isn't there recipe, but DH and DD13 like it) http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/reci..._27332,00.html
coconut shrimp: (I make them all the time, this isn't a cruice recipe but I swear I head them at Parrot Cay) http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Coconut...-I/Detail.aspx
mashed sweet potato
grilled/sauteed (your preference) zucchini

dessert:
Palo's pavlova:* http://disneyrecipes.homestead.com/DCLpavlova.html
--- or ---
ice cream bars (vanilla ice cream covered in chocolate) cut in the shape of Mickey's head

*Instead you could use strawberries in syrup (just mix some brown sugar in and refridgerate for a bit) instead. If someone like pavlova, they could just have strawberries and cream.

Try decorating the table with leis, other tropical decorations, and glow sticks. Play steel drum and Disney music.

activites:
flubber: http://www.makingfriends.com/r_flubber.htm
swimming: If you have an inground pool or just even a blow-up one, make it a pool party!
make passports: Staple together small booklets of about six pages together, with a piece of blue construction paper on the ends. With a gold sharpie, write passport on the cover. Inside one page, draw a box for the kids to draw their picture and leave a spot for them to write their name and birthday. On the other pages, write where they'll be going.
sandcastles: Build sandcastles either out of regular sand or moonsand.
dance party : Wearing glow sticks and necklaces, have a dance like the the sail-away party. Bring out the hoola-hoops and so who can keep it going the longest, while dancing at the same time.

Queenie - Awesome ideas! I was looking through our Disney movie library, trying to think of new ideas and stumbled on Valiant. I said, "Way too hard", but what a great menu and fun activities! I would love to do a Disney cruise, but I will definitely do cruise night in the meantime! Index updated!

Wow! I love all the ideas! Last week we did 3 of these due to horrible thunderstorms (and the dish going out) so all the creative ideas really helped us out! Keep them coming!

Menu suggeston (this one's actually from me ):

In the movie, the "gang" eat dinner at a sushi bar. If everyone likes it (I do but am allergic to seaweed), you could do sushi and other japanese take-out items for dinner.

Movie: The Wild

Menu: "Zoo food"

snacks: popcorn, caramel apples, soft pretzels and your other favorites

Dinner:
Samson's grilled steak
tempura-fried green beans
grilled corn (left out on the grill for a few minutes, then skinned so you're left with just the kernals)

dessert:
ice cream cones

Activity:
"Turtle-shelling": A variation on what they did in the movie. Set up a large tarp outside and wet it so it could be used as a slip n' slide. Use fake turtle shells and play luge with them.
animal masks: The classic, make either a lion, koala, giraffe, etc.
make up stories: Samson made up stories about the wild, have everyone else make up a story about animals.
Lego skyskrapers: See who can go the highest!

Alice in Wonderland...

I've been wanting to do a Disney themed night forever and I finally did one. We did Alice in Wonderland! There were 8 children and we started the movie then had our meal 50 minutes into the meal. They totally 'got' the idea behind "eat me" and "drink me"! It was the best night in our neighborhood. Thank you soooo much for the idea and I can't wait for the next Disney Night.
