My girls have always been into Disney, but it wasn’t until after they visited Disney World this past Christmas that they really felt the magic of all Disney had to offer. You can say we are a Disney Family because our birthday parties center around a Disney theme, and our playdates generally involve a Disney flick in the background while the children do a craft.
When we were asked to host a #DisneySide party, my oldest daughter was just as ecstatic as I was. We threw a few ideas around, but with the constant NYC snow this past winter, and many viruses being passed around, our party was delayed quite a bit. One evening when we invited our friends and family over for a screening of Frozen, we decided it would be a great time to host an impromptu DisneySide party. I figured if we planned it in advance, there were too many instanced that could be against us.
We used some great items that we received in our DisneySide party pack, and even added a few of our own. For crafts, we decided to make gingerbread houses. I scored a great after-holiday deal on these sets and knew the kids would have a great time setting them up, plus I thought it went along with the Frozen theme we were already in. The girls all picked out an outfit to wear from our extensive Disney princess collection. and got to making some houses:
Our new Wii U came in handy for some extra special Disney fun with Disney Infinity. The children each got a turn playing in the Toy Box of Disney Infinity with their favorite character. It was fun watching the kids act out their character. What impressed me the most was their ability to take turns and show patience – they were having such a good time, they knew they would miss out if they showed any tantrums. This was a great thing!
All in all our DisneySide party was a blast! In a few weeks we will be throwing a Minnie Mouse 2nd Birthday celebration for my youngest daughter. I will be featuring some fun Minnie Mouse themed DIY invitations, decor, and desserts showing our DisneySide! Stay tuned for more #DisneySide!
