Brother Bear

We just booked our stay at the Wilderness Lodge so we did a Brother Bear Night. This is one of our favorite movies.


MENU
Kenai & Koda Catfish
Brother Bear Broccoli
Tuke & Rutt Rice
Eagle Eggs
Raspberry Teddy Tart ~ Frozen Raspberries thawed. Put in mini pie shell. Cool Whip on top and Chocolate Teddy Grahams to top it off.
Denahi Dessert - "Cub" Cakes ~ http://familyfun.go.com/recipes/cub-cakes-824242/
Northern Lights Drink ~ Green & Grape Kool-Aid made with 1/2 the water and put into ice trays. Layer in glass and pour Sprite over it.


MENU & TENT CARDS
I made my own menu and food tent cards. I also made a blank one so if anyone would like to use them you can go to my Photobucket to download them.

TOTEM POLES
We made our own Totem Poles using paper towel rolls and the following template:

GAME
We made up a game using Indian symbols (link below). I glued the symbols to some Flat Marbles. We put them all in a basket and each person pulled out 5 of them. With those Flat Marbles we had tell a short Indian story based on the symbols we pulled out. It was a lot of fun and the stories were really funny. J

SEEK & FIND
We played Seek and Find with some pictures I found on line. It was fun trying to find all the hidden bears. You can find them on my Photobucket.

TABLE
Our house is decorated like a log cabin so it wasn't hard finding things around the house to decorate the table with. I used my Grandmother's Indian blanket. I got the idea of using a blanket from someone else on this thread. Thanks.

Raspberry Teddy Tart

Yes, apples and grapes. I think I posted a link to the directions somewhere in here, but in case I didn't here it is (click on the link).

In more exciting news, it looks like I will be taking the kids on a quick trip (one night, two days) to MK in December!!!! We will be in FL visiting my mom, and we can rent a car and stay overnight, getting 2 days at MK! So we will be doing more Disney nights soon! I'm sure we will redo many we have done, but can you guys suggest what films we should focus on as the trip approaches? We are so used to DLR that I can't remember what we will do and see more of at MK. I'm thinking Peter Pan, Pirates, a "Haunted" night with Mickey's House of Villains, Toy Story, maybe a theme park night and a Mickey night... but what else?

I don't get over here too often, because it takes all the time I have to keep up on the trip reports. Every time I come here, though, I enjoy seeing all the ways people are keeping the Disney fun and magic going at home between trips.

Here are a few pictures from my granddaughter's 4th birthday party, held last weekend.

This was on the mailbox with balloons.





Jil made the cake, and I think it turned out great!





We trimmed this up, and at party time, each child had his/her picture made peeking out of it before they left. My daughter will be sending them those pictures. They turned out really cute.



Goodie bags were cute little Toy Story sandpails.



Lunch was at Pizza Planet, of course.





A couple of little friends snuck into the sweets.



On the door frames and window sills, we had little green aliens and Army men. It was a fun little touch.



I'm not finding any Army men pictures, unfortunately, but they were cute 'guarding' the doorways.

(Well, you can barely see them in the background of this picture of Brooklynn greeting her uncle.)





That party was on Saturday. The next day, since we had family in town and the whole group was not able to go with us on the Disney World trip in July, we had a Beach Club party.





Yes, our Beach Club meal was held in our normally Wilderness Lodge kitchen.







We used 'official' Disney mugs from past trips.



It was a very fun weekend, filled with as much 'Disneyness' as we could manage. Our next trip is in October. Since we don't have a holiday trip this year, we'll be bringing back some things to help us have a Disney Christmas at home. I'm thinking we may do a Christmas Around World Showcase theme, but I am not sure.

Thanks, everyone, for continuing to share all of your great ideas!

Hello! Over the last few weeks I've read every post here, and you all have created such a lovely community on this thread! :

I'm not around the DIS as much as I used to be, but thought I'd pop in and thank you for this idea. We have had 4 Disney Family Days (can't be too late with two 2-year-olds! ) and are having a blast counting down until our November trip. Can't spend the time to upload photos, but if you're interested in seeing they're shown here. Thanks again for all of the creative ideas!

The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh

Alice in Wonderland

The Three Caballeros

The Little Mermaid

I'm guessing you saw the plastic lizard that was eyeing my plate of food at the Beach Club....right?

I always did want to be Mrs. Walton and have a house full of kids. I ended up with three, but would have welcomed more. I guess I'll be happy with being MeMom to a whole gaggle of DIS 'kids'.

For my DS's 3rd birthday, we did a Toy Story night.

We served
Woody's Yummy Pizza
Buzz's Planetary Breadsticks
Potato Head's Lincoln Logs (Cheesesticks)
Jessie's Berry Juice
Green Alien Cupcakes








Then we had a Camp Rock 2 party. Unfortunately, we seem to have forgotten to take pictures for this one.

We served
Camp Rock's Jamming Burgers
Camp Star's Rocking Corn
Mitchie's Dancing Beans
Shane's Slamming Dessert (brownie sundaes)


Next up Tinkerbell and the Great Fairy Rescue. Would love some ideas for this night if anyone has any...

OK everyone, it's almost Autumn which means the days are shorter and the nights longer. We will have more time to watch movies and cook indoors. Let's get our Disney theme night thinking going and get back to the fun. I know there are a couple I want to do for Fall (House of Mouse Villians, Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Haunted Manison etc.).

Everyone's ideas are sooo creative and great. I love to look back over the thread for ideas
