Our latest movie night was my DD's favorite Cinderella. Decor was done by Emily, she gathered a few of her Cinderella books and toys to place about the room. The menu was Royal flank steak, Regal mashed potatoes and Charming green beans. Dessert was Cinderella's pearl cupcakes. As always we watched the movie first, then while dinner was finishing up the kids did some coloring pages. After dinner we played Disneys Sing It which is always a blast. Sam's choices of songs always make me smile, what other boy chooses Mary Poppins and Lady and the Tramp as his first songs? My love of all things Disney has definately been passed down to my kids. We ended the night with a Cinderella puzzle. It was a very fun night, next up I think is A Bugs Life, we had a vote last night and it was a tie with The Incredibles but mom has the deciding vote and I haven't seen A Bugs Life in forever so that's what we're going with

Sorry if this has already been mentioned. I got a book from the library I thought you all might be interested in. The Disney Party Handbook.
It has ideas for:
Winnie the Pooh
101 Dalmations
Lion King
Peter Pan
Little mermaid
Cinderella
Alice wonderland (unbirthday tea party)
Beauty & Beast
Aladdin
Toy Story
Pocahontas
Sleeping Beauty
Hunchback
Hercules

It has food ideas and stuff you can copy out of it like invitations etc.

I've been a silent watch of this thread and LOVE the ideas out here. We thought we'd do Lion King, but then saw Snow White was playing on ABC Family. So we worked really hard to come up with a great meal.

Snow White -

Tonight we had mini bratz and saurkrat like we had at Germany in Epcot - why that goes with Snow White I'll never know.

Baked apples or Poison apples - w/brown sugar, cinnamon and mini marshmellows.


Then we made jello gems! red Rubies, yellow diamonds, blue sapphires, green emeralds, and orange garnets.


DD11 made a poison apple and DD8 made a pick ax as centerpieces.

It was a lot of fun! Thank you so much for creating this thread! This will help keep Disney in our lives while we wait 2 more years until our next trip!

We just had the meatball recipe from Post 88, and it was so delicious! I have never had meatballs I liked as much as that!

Painted a puppy face and watched Lady and the Tramp. Very fun night! I love this thread!

We will be having our 100 days 'til Disney party next weekend. I'm trying to base the menus off of favorite rides. (The 3 of us are the only ones going on the trip. But, we invited 3 friends for dinner that just returned from their trip. We'll watch their videos, look at photos, and maybe play a Disney game.)

Expedition Everest- Yeti Spaghetti (fettucini alfredo)
Toy Story Midway Mania- Pizza Planet pizza (order in- put Pizza Planet label on it)
Splash Mountain- Splash logs (breadsticks) that can be splashed into marinara
Tower of Terror- Bellhop bowtie pasta salad (which, I don't think the bellhops actually wear bowties, but I don't want another dessert)

Test Track- stoplight cookies from this thread
Haunted Mansion- brownies with gravestone markers from this thread
Soarin'- Oranges (unless I find a yummy recipe for an orange flavored dessert)


I will attempt to post pictures after the party.

We did a Mickey themed Valentines dinner. Dinner was a heart shaped meatloaf for my younger children, steaks for DH, older DS and I, mashed potatoes, corn and mac and cheese. Dessert was strawberry cupcakes! After dinner the kids did a Mickey Valentines Day picture frame craft that we got at the Disney store.

Thank you

I don't know what I'm going to do once our trip is over, I have a feeling we'll be keeping up with these theme nights, my kids (and me) are enjoying them too much! I must say it is keeping me from obsessing over my trip planning!

Lady & The Tramphttp://www.disboards.com/newreply.php?do=newreply&noquote=1&p=3996210

The second movie night we did was for Lady & The Tramp. This movie fit very well with Valentine's Day and we used it to celebrate that also.

Here is the main set-up. (Before food had been added.)


This is the Tony's Town Square Restaurant sign I made from posterboard & red cardstock. I used my Cricut (die cutting machine) to cut out the letters and corner designs.



Here is Lady & The Tramp (closest stuffed dogs we had that resembled them) enjoying their spaghetti and meatballs (yellow yarn, red yarn, brown pom-poms).


Framed picture of the famous scene, surrounded by candlelight.


Dinner was of course spaghetti and meatballs.


Breadsticks


Sparkling wine(juice)


Dessert was heart shaped brownies pierced with cupids arrow (made from red felt and sucker stick) atop vanilla ice cream.


More pictures and info in next post (sorry this got so long)!

Lady & The Tramp

Here our some pics of the kids. They dressed up for the occasion and donned doggy ears and had a black nose painted on (even my DH).












After dinner and the movie they colored a picture.




Then we played two games. The first was "Toss The Meatballs". We used the pom-poms meatballs and yarn spaghetti for this game.


The second game was a dog bone hunt. I cut bone shapes from white cardstock and used new dog bowls to collect them in. We took turns hiding them over and over again throughout the family room. (I didn't take any pictures of this).

We had another great Disney movie night. Now to decide which movie next, hmmm.
