I love the Jack-o-Lanter burgers! We've had Mummy Dogs the past two years.

I guess it depends on what your family will eat. I can't remember what we did, but my kids are extremely picky, so they will not eat anything too unfamiliar to them. That might be the night we did turkey legs. You can serve it with roasted red potatoes, onions, and carrots. I know we did bear claw cookies (no-bake cookies with almond slivers arranged as claws).
With all the Disney movies I got for my kids for X-Mas presents, I am looking forward to some more Disney theme nights! I only wish the page with the post number for ideas was updated so I don't have to read every page looking for ideas for Brave and the newer movies.
I'd be willing to update it if the original poster could give me the info (like copy and past all the links...)
First off - I cannot express how much I LOVE this thread! I've been checking it for months now & finally decided to create an account so that I can comment and share fun ideas.
Secondly - I agree that it would be nice if the index was updated. I would be willing to help out if needs be since there are so many pages to go through...
A is for Ants - A Bug's Life: http://lifeisfantasmic.blogspot.com/2012/09/a-is-for-ants-bugs-life.html
This was our Ant themed lunch that we ate while watching A Bug's Life...
We had ants on a log, ants on a leaf (granny smith apple), turkey, cheese, & applesauce all infested with ants (raisins & chocolate chips) headed to their chocolate pudding anthill. Next time I will probably make the anthill with pudding & then crushed oreos for dirt so it looks more realistic.
B is for Bear - Winnie the Pooh: http://lifeisfantasmic.blogspot.com/2012/09/b-is-for-bear-winnie-pooh.html
While watching Winnie the Pooh we ate a peanut butter & hunny sandwich (since Pooh Bear LOVES hunny), teddy grahams, 'bear'ies, & gummy bears.
C is for Cowboy - Toy Story 2: http://lifeisfantasmic.blogspot.com/2012/10/c-is-for-cowboy-toy-story-2.html
While watching Toy Story 2 we ate cheese curls (just like the ones Al eats in Toy Story 2), a mini pizza bagel (from Pizza Planet of course), green alien grapes, sheriff star shaped cheese & mini star crackers, Hamm, Cowboy Crunchies (granola clusters), topped with Jessie's hat (gum drop on top of a gummy fruit slice cut in half then stuck together, embellished with melted white chocolate).
D is for Dog - 101 Dalmatians: http://lifeisfantasmic.blogspot.com/2012/10/d-is-for-dog-101-dalmatians.html
While watching 101 Dalmatians we ate string cheese bones, mini corn dogs, puppy chow, frozen 'pup'peas, a 'pup'peroni pawprint, dog bone crackers (Keebler's Scooby Doo crackers), & mini oreo spots.
E is for Elephant - Dumbo: http://lifeisfantasmic.blogspot.com/2012/10/e-is-for-elephant-dumbo.html
We watched Dumbo and ate orange circus peanuts, an elephant biscuit, nutter butters, popcorn, grapes (kind of like the bubbles Dumbo blows), & cheese for Timothy the mouse. Oh, and we couldn't forget the pink elephants on parade (animal crackers).
F is for Fish - Finding Nemo: http://lifeisfantasmic.blogspot.com/2012/10/f-is-for-fish-finding-nemo.html
While watching Finding Nemo we ate 'fish eggs' (pomegranate), goldfish crackers, mandarin oranges (since clownfish are orange), a peanut butter & jelly'fish' sandwich, blue jello (from the "ocean" of course), & a tuna fish sandwich. Fish sticks are another option for food if you need another idea, and I saw these cute apricot clownfish afterwards that I think I'll make next time! Oh, I also bought swedish fish to put "in" the jello last second but I forgot to put them in.
G is for Genie - Aladdin: http://lifeisfantasmic.blogspot.com/2012/11/g-is-for-genie-aladdin.html
While watching Aladdin we ate 'Big nabob' mini chicken kabobs, 3 marshmallow wishes (since you can wish upon stars), couscous (I had never had it before, but it was pretty tasty), riches from the cave of wonders (I had a hard time finding chocolate gold coins, so we settled on rolos), a 'stolen' apple (I know, technically it should be red... but I only had granny smith), & homemade baklava.
H is for Hero - Hercules: http://lifeisfantasmic.blogspot.com/2012/11/h-is-for-hero-hercules.html
While watching Hercules we ate a mini hero (I just got Subway), lightning bolt cheese, grapes (like the ones Phil threw out of the bowl that he ate), Hades' 'devil' food cake cookies, Greek yogurt, & Pegasus' cotton candy clouds.
I is for Island - Lilo and Stitch: http://lifeisfantasmic.blogspot.com/2012/11/i-is-for-island-lilo-and-stitch.html
We sat on our beach towels to watch Lilo and Stitch while eating ham, fresh pineapple, coconut macaroons, cherries, Pudge's peanut butter sandwich sushi, & banana poi (we actually ate banana pudding because I didn't have coconut cream).
I love all of your ideas! The muffin tin idea is really cute!
I LOVE the muffin tin dinners! So clever!
We had our Toy Story Movie night a few weekends ago. I had a good time planning this one. DH and I decided to have a little fun with the invitations, so we made them into paper airplanes:
DS6 had colored these pictures MONTHS ago and asked me to save them for when we had a Toy Story movie night:
DD13 used some of "Andy's" artwork that I printed off to create this wall:
I had every intention of borrowing some Potatohead toys from some friends to put on the table. I had even called her to make sure I could pick them up Friday afternoon...but I forgot! So my table decorations are, shall we say lacking? I did the best I could with what I had, and the kids were just fine with it.
There is a little paper Toy Story play set there that I printed off from the Disney Family Fun website, and some little green army men.
While I was cooking, the kids made "Galactic Hero" playdough:
This stuff turned out great, and they played with it all weekend. We have it in a ziploc bag, so it will keep for a while.
The last activity for the night, which DH "helped" with was a DOOZY! This thing was small and difficult. I didn't ask for any "turn around and smile" shots since everyone was pretty concentrated:
I wanted DH to be in the "finished product" shot since he ended up having to do a great bulk of the work, but he wanted to just let the girls do the picture (DS6 didn't help with this one at all):
And a close-up:
Our movie night was yet another success! We didn't draw for our next movie night theme since it will be December, and December is always packed with Christmas fesitivities and preparations. We do plan to catch quite a few of the ABC Family 25 Days of Christmas movies, and I have a couple snack and drink ideas to go with a few of them. But there will be no dinner menus, activities or full on decorations to do for those. We will pick the Disney movie nights back up at the start of the new year...which is only 3 weeks away, can you believe it!?!?
I love the TSM!!!
Any suggestions for Emperor's New Groove? We're doing that for L is for Llama week. We don't like spinach so Kronk's spinach puffs are out of the question...
Also, any Disney movie ideas for any of the following?
N - nut, nest, ?
V - volcano, vulture, vacuum, ?
Y - yak, ?
I'm open to other suggestions, but that's all I could think of since I'm trying to stay away from character names.

You could also recreate the diner scene.
Waitress: Ordering. Three pork combos, extra bacon on the side, two chili cheese samplers, a basket of liver and onion rings, a catch of the day, and a steak cut in the shape of a trout. You got all that, honey?
Kronk: Three oinkers wearing pants, plate of hot air, basket of Grandma's breakfast and change the bull to a gill, got it.
Yzma: Make me the special. And hold the gravy!
Kronk: Check. Pickup!
Kuzco: You know what? On second thought, make my omelette a meat pie.
Kronk: Meat pie. Check.
Yzma: Kronk! Can I order the potatoes as a side dish?
Kronk: I'll have to charge you full price.
Yzma: [annoyed] Ooh.
Kuzco: Hey, how about a side of potatoes, my buddy?
Kronk: You got it. Want cheese on those potatoes?
Yzma: Thank you, Kronk. Cheddar will be fine.
Kronk: Cheddar spuds coming up.
Kuzco: Spuds yes, cheese no.
Kronk: Hold the cheese.
Yzma: No, I want the cheese.
Kronk: Cheese it is.
Kuzco: Cheese me no "likee."
Kronk: Cheese out.
Yzma: Cheese in!
Kronk: Ah, come on. Make up your mind!
Kuzco: Okay, okay, on second thought...
Yzma, Kuzco: ...make my potatoes a salad.
