Talking Disney Dinner and a Movie Nights... with Menu Ideas and Photos!!!

I am so excited about our upcoming trip to DL with my little Disney family (DH , DS6 and DS(almost)3 ) Just 3 weeks and 6 days until we arrive at the Happiest Place on Earth!!! Super excited I saw a post with Disney Dinner & a Movie menu ideas and thought that this would be an awesome way to help countdown the weeks until our trip!!! So far every DD&M night has been a HUGE success and I thought I'd share some photos for all to enjoy!!!

On the Menu:
- Bella Notte Spaghetti & Meatballs.
- Trusty's Caesar Salad.
- Aunt Sarah's Famous Garlic Bread.
- Tony's Italian Sodas.
- Spaghetti & Meatball Cupcakes.









Week three on the list, MULAN!!!
On the Menu:
- Mulan's Orange Chicken.
- Captain Shang's Chow Mein.
- Chien-Po's Fried Rice.
- Shan Yu's Pot Stickers.
- Mushu Rice Krispy Treats (Rice Krispy Treats wrapped in Fruit by the Foot.)
- The Emperor's Iced Green Tea.







Week four on the list, TOY STORY 3!!!
On the Menu:
- Pizza Planet Pizza.
- Ken & Barbie Mac & Cheese.
- Sarge's Caesar Salad.
- Lotso Strawberries (Get it... cause he smells like Strawberries... LOL... I thought it was clever!!!)

Well, that's it for now... more to come in the next few weeks

This is brilliant! I wish I had the time to do all of this to prepare for a Disney trip. I loved all of your decorations and the theming is great!

The Spaghetti & Meatball Cupcakes are topped with a Ferrero Rocher Chocolate as the "meatball" and Smuckers Strawberry Ice Cream topping for the "spaghetti sauce"!!!

Wink It was a great movie night i was there

My family and I were at two of tyfannidawn's movie nights and it all tasted just as good as it looked! She really went all out. Our grandchildren were with us, and they loved the party and the decorations. She even played a trivia game about the movie and the kids earned disney dollars that she got on e-bay. We will be at Disneyland the same time as tyfannidawn and her family.

WOW!!! What a clever and creative idea! I absolutely love the Mushu treats and the Mr. Pricklepants cupcake! I think my boys would go crazy over the whole cars themed meal. I'm definitely going to come up with something like this to do for my family to get us jazzed up about our trip (I have 6 months to still figure out the details, ha!)
