xxWDWFreak, great ideas! I will add them to the index!

I didn't know the fun fact about Walt and the waffles, very cool! I would love to develop that into a whole breakfast... any more ideas anyone?? I will look for a yummy waffle recipe to include! How about some sides and activity?

I am 30 years old, and the stupid mayor whose head spins still freaks me out (you should see me when I watch "Silence of the Lambs" - HA! ). I would love to pull together a full theme night for this, any ideas anyone???

Peter Pan Sandwiches - very cute!

I would still love to hear more ideas about "Twas the Night Before Disney Vacation"!!
Wow! You've never seen Nightmare Before Christmas!? It is a really good movie, the ending especially, its so sweet :3

WOO! my idea made it up there X3 I feel so special

Turn your family room into an ocean of jellyfish! Buy a bunch of pink helium filled balloons. About 2/3 down the balloons, tape lengths of pink crepe paper to create jellyfish and let them float in the room!

But I thought that "Fish are friends, not food" !!!

SilverBelle990, I LOVE what you did! If you find time, could you please post recipes/instructions??? Too perfect!!!

rellabee...I did think long and hard about the fish sticks, I think my DD would drop on the floor when she realized she was eating Nemo, but I came up empty with other ideas! A meal fit for Bruce, eh?

Disney Brunch

Walt's Waffles (Banana Whole Wheat recipe from Disney Co.)
http://www.austin360.com/food_drink/...skeepers1.html
Here is the excuse I have always wanted so I can get myself a Mickey waffle maker!!!
Pooh Bear's Breakfast Potato Casserole (Crystal Palace recipe)
http://www.allearsnet.com/din/rec_cppot.htm
Lilo's Pineapple Bread (Ohanas recipe/Polynesian) Make night before!
http://www.allearsnet.com/din/rec_pb.htm
One of my most favorite souvenirs is a set of Mickey-shaped egg rings we use to make eggs and pancakes. Can purchase at most resort gift shops as well as the "kitchen shops" throughout the world.

Activity: Game Day!
Disney Scene-It!
(This is never a relaxed family game for us. Rather, we are cut-throat and determined to prove to each other that we are the Disney officianado in the family!)
Magic Kingdom Board Game
(We bought this a couple of years ago at our local Toys R Us. It is awesome for reminiscing about trips and rides. One of our favorites.)
Disney Clue/Haunted Mansion Board Games
(Don't have this one yet, but definitely is our next "family gift" for Christmas)

Any ideas for a World Showcase Country night??? I know we can recipes from the restaurants at EPCOT, so how about some country-specific activities/crafts/games? Share your heritage!
We need:
Mexico
Norway
China
Japan
England
Morocco
Canada
Is that it? My brain is very much malfunctioning today...

Here are a few from our Cinco de Mayo meal on Saturday. We've never celebrated it before, but Three Caballeros came out and we had a Mexico Donald from Epcot, so there was an excuse for a Disney party.

Not the greatest pictures, sorry.













A 99 cent bag served the purpose as a pinata for a less than two year old. She smacked at it, and I tossed down her goodies!



My kids made fun of my "ghetto" pinata, but I couldn't see spending almost twenty dollars on one at Brooklynn's age. When she's old enough to know what's going on, then I will. She was quite happy with her Nemo book, coloring book, goldfish crackers, and Little Einstein fruit chews.

Anyway, we had fun - watched Three Caballeros later (it was running anyway, we were all sort of in and out of the room doing different things) - and ate too much spicy food.

On Mother's Day, we'll celebrate the girls with a Princesses theme. I'm already preparing myself for the comments I will get from the guys about the finger sandwiches.

What about a Great Big Beautiful Carosel of Progress Party!

Attraction - Carosel of Progress!

Menu - Food choices from each time period from the ride! Buffet style (like going through the time!)

Activities - Era-specific games and trivia!

I'm sorry it's not more specific I can't remember what each eras are represented but hopefully someone finds this idea fun and if you have this party please post!!!

Quote:
There's a great big beautiful tomorrow shining at the end of every day!

Okay so this is my 2nd time reading the thread and i am soo excited. Tonight i am going ot suprise my husband and my 2 year old son and we are going to have a Disney Night. I am making mashed potatoes ( putting them to make a circle) then i bought chicken cruquets (the ears). I am going to make mickey mouse heads with construction paper and its going to read " Disney Night" I am going to try and get creative with a few more ideas in the next 2 hours I went out and bought a popcorn bucket (im going to put disney stickers all over it) And i bought the candy boxes you would buy at a movie theater. We are actually going to watch the video we have from 4 years ago when me and dh went to disney. I figured it might get him and my son excited. Then im going to tell them all about our disney theme nights we are going to start having. I hope they are both excited. I will take some pictures. But i dont know how to post them haha. Wish me luck

Good Luck Belle231! I'm so glad to see you enjoying the thread! Isn't everyone super creative?? I have not personally figured it out yet, but I do know that you can get a free account at photobucket and use that to post your photos. If you can do it, I would LOVE to see your photos!

LOVE the Carousel of Progress idea (hmmm...wonder why?? Can't tell how much I like that one from my siggy, huh?!) Anyone have any suggestions? Yesterday I just heard the whole attraction on Live365, it was so cool!
