My kids are older and we did a simple movie night. I bought the Toy Story dvds 1 & 2. I found Toy Story Mac N cheese at the store so we had that. I got out our Buzz, Woody and Bullseye dolls from the storage bins. I made Alien Green milkshakes for dessert. They actually turned out very dark almost black ( icecream was cookies and cream so that's probably why) but the kids didn't care and said they were so good.

My kids had a great time! It had been years since we'd seen Toy Story and years since they had played with the Toy Story dolls. We each held one while we watched the movie.

I've got tons of ideas for our next movie night. It will either be the Haunted Mansion or Up or FInding Nemo since I've recently purchased those movies.

Love your Princess and the Frog table setting welovelilo05. Looks like a fun night with some yummy food. Where did you find the cute figurines? And what type of pie was that?

Thanks everyone for the great comments! We had SO much fun doing this! We have 7-year old boy/girl twins, so every day is Disney at our house. We never watch "regular" television. We either have it on the Disney Channel or a Disney movie. Saturday nights will be our *Family Movie Night* where we will showcase something extra special.

The pie we made was Ray's Mud Pie from Tiana's Cookbook. We modified it a little to make it easier so my 7-year old daughter could help. It is SUPER easy to make. In the original recipe, it calls for you to make the crust and whipped topping and sprinkle chocolate graham crackers on the top of the pie. Here is our modified version:

Ingredients:

1 Oreo Crust pie shell
1 pint Chocolate ice cream
Hot Fudge topping
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Cool Whip
1 pouch hot chocolate mix

Directions:

Take half of the ice cream and let sit for approximately 10 minutes to soften. Spoon into pie shell. Make 8 holes and fill with hot fudge topping. Freeze for 10 minutes. Mix remaining ice cream and mix semi-sweet chocolate chips. Add as second layer. Freeze for 10 minutes. Mix the hot chocolate mix into the cool whip. Add as the top layer. Design a Mickey Head (or any other design) in semi-sweet chocolate chips on top and freeze for 30 minutes. Note: Needs to be kept in the freezer.

This pie is SOOOOOOOO yummy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We had a Mulan night and a Toy Story Pizza Planet night that were so much fun. Here are some pictures:




I bought the Buzz and Woody figures, but made the rest out of starburst and other candy. Instead of cupcakes I made a kind of rice crispy bar shaped cupcake for a new variety.


Mr. and Mrs Potato Head were my favorite. I was actually really sad when my DD ate them







I know that Baked Potatoes don't really go with pizza, but we wanted to make "real" potato heads


Final result!






Mulan was pretty low mainenance. I just ordered take out and dressed up DD in an old halloween costume.



The kids had fun eating with chop sticks

susiesk...I love the idea of designing actual Baked Potato Heads. I'll have to remember that one. Your candy figures were cute enough to package and sell.

ut*disney...Thanks for posting the pie recipe. My DS12 loves to make anything sweet, so I'll pass this one on to him.

UP Night

Tonight we had a wonderful UP Disney night! For dinner we made hot "Dugs", Paradise Falls pasta salad and pineapple, Carl & Ellie's grape soda, Russell beans and kevin's favorite chocolate bars!

Mike in his UP shirt!


The details!






Onto the festivities!






Emily in her Carl chair!




We had a great night! I LOVE UP!! Mike had never seen it and I had to pass him the tissues a couple of times, but he loved it! Eva is just enamored by the balloons! She was staring at them and cracking up! It was so cute!!

Everyone has such great ideas!

We just had our first Disney Movie Night last night. We did "A Bug's Life." The kids went wild and even DH thought it was great. I will post pictures once I get them uploaded.

We had cold fried chicken, biscuits, potato salad, grape skewers, strawberries and deviled eggs. For dessert we made dirt cups but used cookies and cream ice cream instead of pudding. The kids are already asking what next week's feature is. They really want to do Princess and the Frog but we have seriously watched that movie twice a day since it showed up in my youngest's Easter Basket.

I think maybe we will save it for a couple of week's and do Toy Story next week. It has been ages since we saw that one. 5 more weeks until we leave and we are going to try to do a movie night once a week until then.

Thanks so much to all of you and your ideas!

I went to Dollar Tree today to buy stuff for up and coming movie nights. I picked up tons of Luau stuff for Lilo and Stitch. DT just got these in because they were front and center where the Easter stuff had been.

Got cute small dog bowls for Lady and the Tramp or 101 Dalmations night. It will be so funny to eat out of them.

Got plastic bugs and red/white checkered cloth for A Bugs Life picnic on the floor.

Got mardi gras beads and a Tiana wand for the Princess and the Frog.

Got 2 glass bowls from the candle area that look like fish bowls for Finding Nemo. We'll put blue jello and fruit snack sea animals in them for dessert.

Got a pirates centerpiece for Pirates in the Caribbean. We have a ton of pirate stuff from our Disney cruise so we are set for that.

Got some tins that look like hubcabs. Came 4 to a pack. We'll use those as plates/bowls for Cars.

Too excited about all my finds.

We did Haunted Mansion last night. I printed out the Haunted Mansion invitation and bookmarks from Family fun. Made grilled cheese sandwiches cut into coffin shapes and topped with paper tombstones that I made. Dessert was graveyard dirt (cups) with worms.

Kids think these nights are so much fun and they asked what's coming next! My kids are 10 and 13! I guess they are never too old
