Our #DisneySide Party

There are some things that just never change, and being a Disney fan is one of them. Disney has been a staple in my life since childhood, and is a love that I could pass down to my children. They have grown up watching some of the movies I watched as a child, and now they have their own hits to watch too. When we had the chance to host a #DisneySide party, we knew it was a perfect fit.

We grabbed a bunch of fun items to use as prizes including puzzles, activity books, washcloths, water bottles and a ton more. My daughter and I even made some cute wands for the girls to practice being princesses. 

We tried to stick with the Disney theme as much as we could for the food. We made 2 kinds of cupcakes, each one stuffed with a delicious cake ball,  and topped with Oreo's for cute Mickey Mouse heads.

As part of the #DisneySide party pack , we were sent Mickey Mouse plates, cups, tablecloth and napkins. We grabbed some Disney fruit snacks and other goodies too. 

 With so many little hands, I wanted to avoid touching food as much as possible, so we used toothpicks inserted into Mickey head shaped cheese, carrots, apples and celery for snacks.

I made some character sandwiches too. We had peanut butter and jelly in three flavors and peanut butter and honey too. These were made into Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore and Piglet shapes using cookie cutters. We also made star shaped tuna sandwiches for those who don't like pb&j. 

The kids loved the Disney Winnie the Pooh honey we used so much, one of them asked to take some home.

Doritos, cookies and other foods completed the food.

The kids had a blast making #RunDisney posters for their favorite sports figures.  

I made a poster board craft so they could play "Pin the Eye on Mike"

 I also had balloons with prize numbers in them and the kids had a balloon bust. Each time they busted a balloon with the darts, they won a prize. We did this outside to avoid any broken objects from the darts.

They all made their own Disney shirts too. This was one of the favorite parts and included such a variety of characters. 

All in all it was a fun day. The kids all got to go home with several prizes and treats, and everyone had a blast. The only thing I would have done differently was to make the party longer. Parents were showing up and guests were leaving while we still had games to play. It was such a busy time, 4 hours wasn't enough time to enjoy it all!
