Thank you for all the great ideas. We leave in just a few days for our son's first trip to WDW. Of course, he has gone to Disneyland and has already mentioned going there. Wait until he finds out about this trip.

We are going to do a CARS theme...

thinking about Hubcap pizzas using english muffins, Sally' Salad, Cozy Cone Ice Cream, Mater Taters, and Chick Hicks Chicken...I just came up with the names...didn't decide on how to make it yet.

First thing that comes to my mind is Isabella ice cream sundae.
activity - create something- or monster truck race with matchbox's
Ferb & the Dad are English correct? Why not Ferb fish & chips
Candace candied carrots

Phineas fruit punch

I have some party printables in my 4shared account in the link in my signature that you may be able to use to help decorate for your family disney dinners. I have pink/black and red/black things for Mickey/Minnie family night. I also have things for Ariel, Cars and Animal Kingdom. Look in the "parties" file.

There are fun french fry holders that are also great for holding raw veggies like carrots and celery for dipping. There are also napkin rings, straw tags, water bottle wrapers, etc.

Tonight we did Princess and the Frog. DD and I saw it once before, Scott didn't, so this was a first for him.
The menu at Tiana's place was:
Jambalaya, Mac and Cheese, and we had cheeseburgers (just in case we didn't like the Jambalaya b/c we never tried it before). For dessert I "made" New Orleans King Cake. This night was dedicated to all those in LA, we are thinking of you all here in NJ

Here's some pics






The King Cake...it tasted better than it looked hahaha




I told Scott he kinda looked like The Riddler lol


We also made Mucous Spittin Frogs


All and all a good night, I love Ray, the end always gets me a little teary eyed
and the Jamabalya was pretty good, it was just the Zatarains mix, but it was yummy just the same.
Next...more than likely Toy Story for Toy Story 3

Please help! I was planning on doing our first Disney theme night with Little Mermaid this coming Friday. However, my son saw Space Buddies in the store today and is super excited about watching it. So, I thought, if I can pull it together, I might start with that one instead. I'm thinking of stealing someone's Toy Story activity idea and doing a hunt for "moon rocks" (a.k.a. balled up aluminum foil) with hershey kisses inside. Does anyone have any dinner ideas for me? Thanks!

Hot DOGS....of course! Can you buy Dippin Dots in a store? Not sure where I'd get them. But, I actually love them and would be SO excited if I could buy them somewhere!

Here we can get them at any Wal Mart Super Center. They are in with all the other ice cream. Good luck.

All of my grocery stores have them, they are in the ice cream section. but they are not called dippin dots they are called something else, sorry can't think of the name, But you buy them individually. Like you wouldn't buy a package with 8, they are like $1 each or less.
Hope you find them, maybe wal-mart?

Space theme birthday party food:

You can't have a space party without REAL Space Food!

Here are some great Space theme birthday party food ideas (make sure to put little signs at the base of each dish explaining what it is.)

* Flying Saucer Pizza (individual pizza's)
* English muffin moon pizza planets (the English muffins give the crater-like effect of the moon)
* Flying Saucer Sandwiches - mini Pita Bread filled with a variety of items from chicken spread, ham spread, PB & J, cheese spread, lettuce, tomato and lunch meat
* Falafel moon balls
* Cosmic fruit salad (tropical fruit salad with pineapple in star and moon shapes - Dole brand)
* Little dippers (chicken nuggets with dipping sauces)
* Round corn tortillas (flying saucers)


Space theme birthday party drinks:

* Alien juice from Mars (green soda pop or 7up with green food coloring or green ice cubes)

Tip: In ice cube trays put green food coloring for green ice cubes.

Got that from http://www.coolest-kid-birthday-part...day-party.html

they have other cool ideas too!

Our Lilo & Stitch Movie Night

17 weeks and so we started our Disney movie countdown. One a week until we leave.

We chose Lilo & Stitch first since it's one of our favorites. The kids used to love to watch the cartoon, not so much anymore but they are pretty special none the less.

First my hubby and I made dinner. We made chicken kebabs with an asian sauce (hoisin, honey and soy sauce - or something like that), stir fry rice and a side of broccoli/cauliflower. For dessert I was going to make either a chocolate lava cake or pineapple upside down cake but my friend had her baby the same day so I was at the hospital. Instead I stopped and bought some lemon meringue pie slices and french silk pie slices on the way home.

We decorated the table with leis, a palm tree centerpiece, the movie, the Lilo & Stitch figurines from the Disney store and two tiki plastic glasses from the dollar store. It was very festive. Even the dog got in on festivities.

Our table


The kids



oh and the dog...

After dinner we made hula skirts. It was so easy. I took some ribbon and cut it to fit around the kids waist. Then we took green tissue paper cut into strips and taped them to the ribbon. They were so cute and the kids had so much fun.

The kids in their skirts. I helped Jack make his but Lillie did hers all on her own.


We watched the movie and ate our desserts, my hubby fell asleep. It was so much fun. We can't wait for next week's movie countdown. We think it's going to be The Lion King.

What? No hula skirt for the dog?

That looks like it was a fun night! Love the centerpiece!

Your theme night looks like so much fun in fact that I just ran the idea of a Lilo and Stitch themed night past my kids and they loved the idea! We'll be doing it next weekend! Thanks so much for sharing your pics!

Sooooo cute! We are heading to the beach in a few weeks, and after we get back, I'm going to start planning our movie theme nights. I think it's such a cute idea for counting down to the magic!
