Celebrating Our Disney Side With a Disney @Home Celebration

I received free products in order to host the Disney Side @Home Celebration.  The opinions expressed here are my own.

 I’ve mentioned several times how we would love to take the girls to Disney World before Ellie starts school, and we are planning to do that sometime next year.  For now we will have to settle for our own Disney adventures at home.  I was honored to receive the opportunity to host a Disney Side @Home Celebration party for my girls and all of their friends.  Even Aubrey and one of her little friends got to join the Disney festivities!  I want to tell you all about our party and show you how easy it is to host your own Disney Side Celebration at home!

We were provided with a great box of goodies from MomSelect and Disney Parks, so our party was super easy to plan.  Packed in super awesome American Tourister Luggage (the official luggage of Walt Disney Word Resort!) we found all everything we needed for a great party.  There were Disney themed cups, balloons, plates, napkins, a tablecloth, Disney cookie cutters, cupcake cups, measuring cups (for making those awesome goodies to eat), and hanging decorations.  I picked up a cheap pack of Disney themed goodie bags and filled them with the included tattoos, stickers, Craisins, bracelets, and bumper stickers.

Also included were HP photo card packs for party invitations and the moms to create their own memories, Disney Bingo, Disney trivia (with lots of interesting Disney facts even this Disney fanatic didn’t know!), t-shirts to decorate, fabric markers, face painting kits, cheer cards, adorable poster cards to send to a favorite character (or in Ellie’s case she wants to frame it and hang it in her room!), and a Disney vacation planning DVD to show us how easy it is to plan our own Disney vacations!

Unfortunately this is a bad year for parties with all the sickness going around.  We were supposed to have 9 kiddos and 4 babies, but RSV, the Flu, and colds decreased the guest list to 4 kids and 2 babies.  That’s ok because we didn’t forget about the kids that couldn’t attend this time.  We saved our decorations and extra supplies to throw another party for those kids when all the sickness makes it way out.  Even though we couldn’t all celebrate at once it was still a very fun party!

We had a late afternoon party, so we started with lots of party food for the hungry bunch of kids.  After pigging out on subs, fruit, cupcakes, and other goodies we let them move on to the party games.  We played Disney themed trivia (mostly the parents) and Disney Bingo.  

Aubrey enjoyed trying to eat the Disney plate more than her food! We had lots of yummy stuff to eat including Mickey Mouse themed cupcakes!

Finally the kids got to decorate their own t-shirts and cheer cards.  I asked the kids to show their Disney sides by making Disney themed shirts.  Because the kids that were able to come to the party were in the 3-5 range we let them use the cookie cutters that came in the supply pack as stencils on their shirts.  They had a blast decorating each shirt, and even the babies got their own Disney themed onesie each!  I had planned to add a star, Mickey, and glove to Aubrey’s but the kids decided to jump in and help design it!

After the kids finished designing their shirts they let me snap a quick group photo, but they were so sugared up on all the dessert goodies they wouldn’t sit still for long.  Do you expect anything else from a group of preschoolers?

We let them run off some energy outside since it was a pretty nice day while the parents gathered around to check out a video on Disney Parks and planning a vacation.  We may not be going to Disney for awhile, but we still had a great time celebrating Disney at home.
