ugh! Why does Disney do this to us. My kids love the new Disney Channel Movie Lemonade Mouth. I think I have seen it 5 times in the past 2 weeks. So I thought if we watch it again maybe I can do something fun with it but I am stumped. I figured we would have lemonade to drink and pizza to eat since they played at a pizza place. Maybe we could do something with a Halloween theme since the first time the band plays is at a school halloween dance. Maybe I could put the kids in detention as that is where the kids met for the first time in the movie. I will have to look and see when it is on again. We watched part of it last night as the kids had to go to bed before it was over.

I am so glad I found this thread! Totally subscribing. We are taking the family trip to Disney in November so I am doing the weekly Disney movie night to countdown. We actually started with Tangled last week and this week is Snow White. These are some amazing ideas! Thank you for sharing them everyone! I will pitch in if I come up with anything new.

Today we had our final theme night leading up to the big reveal night and our trip! We watched Alice in Wonderland and were going to have an outdoor tea party in the backyard but rain forced us to move it inside But we made the best of it and still had fun. Started off with watching the movie, the kids have been enjoying camping out in the family room while we watch movies lately so they brought down their sleeping bags and pillow pets for the show. During the movie Christian helped Ben do an Alice puzzle and the kids ate some special snacks. We then had dinner, we had chicken sandwiches, pb&j's shaped like butterflies and stars, pasta salad and Cheshire cat smiles aka cantalope slices. While I did the dishes and cleaned up the kids did their craft. Since we were supposed the be outside the kids decorated fans shaped like hearts. Of course we had no need for fans since today was chilly and rainy but thats ok, they liked their craft all the same lol. After the craft we had dessert which was, you guessed it cupcakes Dessert was Cheshire Cat cupcakes which we ate with tea (aka chocolate milk).


Alice and The White Rabbit had their own tea party


Snacks




Candy teacups

Peter Pan Night

We have been doing Disney Movie Nights for a few months now to help keep the magic alive between trips. We try to do one every Friday, and the whole family has really come to love them.

I'm going to try to post pictures for all of them because all of the wonderful posts (especially the pictures) on this thread have really helped inspire us.

Here's what we did for Peter Pan Night (technically Return to Neverland):

The Movie:
Return to Neverland

The Food:
Pirate Ship Pizzas
Fruit Swords
Pixie Dusted Cupcakes

The Craft:
Decorated the ship sails for our pizzas
Tinkerbell coloring page

I had the darndest time getting my hands on a copy of Peter Pan. The best I could find was a copy of Return to Neverland at the library. None of us had seen it so it worked out just as well.

The kids love to pull together costumes out of things they find around the house. So, my youngest daughter is Tinkerbell, my middle one is a pirate, and the oldest was Tiger Lily. I whipped up a decent Peter Pan hat out of construction paper and my husband was not given a choice--he was Captain Hook.

The kids all put together their own pizzas and then colored their sails while I got the rest of dinner ready.

Tinkerbell really enjoyed sprinkling her pixie dust on the cupcakes for dessert.

After dinner, we popped the popcorn and settled in for the movie.

Fruit Swords:


Pirate Ship Pizzas:
