    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"!!! :thumbsup2

    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. :wizard: pixiedust:

    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!) :thumbsup2
