How To Host A Fabulous Disney Side @Home Celebration #DisneySide

It's no secret that my family loves all things Disney, so when we were chosen to host a Disney Side @Home Celebration again this year, we were thrilled! I immediately started making a list of what we could do to make it one of the most fun Disney parties we have ever had.


We did receive a box of goodies to help us get going. Our theme was supposed to be villains, but we also stuck with the classic Mickey Mouse theme for some of our younger guests to enjoy. We decided not to go overboard on the eats, sticking with simple finger foods that would be easy to grab while playing games. We used a little Mickey Mouse Cookie Cutter to create some fun Mickey cheese shapes for mini ham and cheese sandwiches. We also served up some "Hot Diggity Dogs".

Mickey Mouse Food

We used the villain place cards we were provided for inspiration too. Using some green sherbert and Sprite, the kids loved sipping on Ursula's Human Potion. It didn't cost them their voice, either!

Sherbert Drink

Kids love snacks, and again, we wanted to keep it simple and as mess free as possible. We used the same Mickey cookie cutters to make some fun Rice Krispies Treats. We were provided a box of Duff Goldman, Tie-Dye, Premium Cake Mix. Sticking with the villains theme, we only used the green and purple dyes to make Ursula's Sea Snack cupcakes. We created Maleficent's staff with chocolate dipped pretzels topped with non perils.

 

What's a party without fun activities and games? The kids had a blast playing Pin the Smile on Mickey.


They raced to see who could complete the Disney Villain's Puzzle the fastest.


The girls did a little villain inspired nail art.


Games like Disney Bingo, Word Search and Match-Up were a hit among all ages.


Feel free to save a copy of these games for your own Disney Side @Home Celebration!

The winners were provided small door prizes. Pencils and these fun Cinderella buttons were well received.


You don't need to invest a lot of time or money into planning a Disney Side @Home Celebration. Keeping it simple and providing fun Disney themed food and games will have every guest entertained for hours!

  1. Love the food and activity ideas here. It reminds me to use my cookie cutters with the rice krispy treats--maybe a shamrock would be good for my next batch. Beautiful Cinderella buttons here too.

    1. I think I only had about 3 hours into putting everything together. The girls helped, so that cut down on time it took me to get it all together. It's always fun when kids can pitch in. My nephew actually did the Mickey ham and cheese cut outs before everyone arrived. The Krispies, cupcakes and pretzel sticks can be made the day before. The rest was just kind or fly by the seat of our pants on what we were going to do/play at any given time. Sometimes spontaneity makes for the best parties.

  5. That's clever how you cut up that meat and cheese on the tray.

    What a fun night!

    I'm not a huge Disney fan. I lost respect for them when they came out with sequels that they didn't even put in the theaters. There's more to it that gets me going. They did it for the money, and not the artistic passion. I do like some of their movies. My oldest sister has bugged me for years to go to Disney World, or maybe it's Disneyland on a group adventure. No thanks. The boys would like it, but I'd rather go camping.

    I get the hype though. They have done so much! I did really like the Toy Story series. That made me like them a little more.

    1. Tell your sister I will go with her any time! We adore the Toy Story movies too. I think a lot of people do, because it is always packed in the Toy Story section of the park. We waited forever to meet Buzz and Woody!

  33. A nod to Maleficent. She's my favorite bad guy...or is that bad girl. Except she's not really all that bad in the long run, which is probably why I like her. :) Love everything, especially your ham and cheese cut outs, those are cute for making sandwiches. :)
