OH!!! I have found my people!!!

Ive been doing Disney Theme Nights with my kids for our August trip! Mine are older 16 and 14, so its tad harder to do these nights... they just indulge me, then go on their merry way

Lots of great ideas on this board! I have to go through all the pages, as im looking for "Brave" ideas for the end of this month !

It's been a long time since I have posted so I have quite a few theme nights to catch up on

Avengers Night

This was put together at the last minute, it's been so long since we did this but I believe I put this together as a bribe for my one DS







No special dinner but Captain America red, white and blue jello for dessert!

Indiana Jones Night

This one we did around Halloween so the decorations were easy to do!



Coloring Pages while we watch the movie





Movie Snacks





Dinner was monkey brains and bones (spaghetti w/ meatballs and breadsticks )







My DD helped me make the brain cupcakes



We played a mummy wrapping game and find the crystal skull, where the kids took turns hiding the skull!





For their craft they painted coffin treasure boxes

Brave

We did Brave on Sunday night. I keep forgetting to take pictures. We are all adults so we set the table with the color theme of the movie (nothing fancy) and our game was Disney Theme Park Trivia (I can get them to play since I offer prizes).
Menu:
Not that kind of Angus chopped steaks
Fergus Fungi Sauce
Merida Mashed (potatoes)
Triplet Veggie Mix
Hey that's dessert not Haggis

We had a great time, I will try to better on the pictures.

I just wanted to say that this board has been great for a newbie to the Disney-addict world! We are planning a trip at the end of October and we are starting our family movie nights this Sunday. We are going with what I thought would be easy to start out with, Lady and the Tramp. I can not wait!! I am usually not a very organized person, but I have the next three movie nights completely planned and ready!! lol.

Oh yeah and while at the store today I picked up some Monsters Inc. shaped mac and cheese!! Obviously there is a Monsters Inc night in our future with all the cute ideas I saw on this board!

We've been to WDW several times the past few years. I started doing movie nights about a year ago, but they were very sporadic as sports became more important for my oldest son. But he loves our Disney Movie Nights. We've done Cars, Monsters Inc, Mulan, Pirates, and Toy Story. Last night we did Dumbo with a complete circus theme. I try to limit my party purchasing to around $25 or $30. The kids like their themed food, prizes and hats or whatnot, as well as the dining room decked out in that nights movie.

Basically I wanted to say, this thread has been a HUGE help as far as ideas go. I've seen alot of pictures from this thread on Pinterest as well.

I'll have to post some of our movie night pictures soon!

We had a Wreck It Ralph night last night and it was so fun!! The kids saw the movie in the theater but didn't realize it had come out on dvd yet, so DH and I hid it and they had to find it to start our night. It was fun!
We made heart medal necklace cookies (like Vanellope gave Ralph) and had pasta and meatballs (no significance there!) We had car races on the floor and did a few coloring pages I printed online. So fun and great to see the movie again!

In December we did The Grinch who Stole Christmas night!





Roast Beast, Who Hash and corn for dinner, Grinch Green punch to drink!





Who pudding and Grinch cupcakes for dessert!






Meet the Robinsons



My DD sporting her Lewis hair



Movie snacks, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and bowler hat snacks



Coloring pages while watching the movie



Dinner was spaghetti and meatballs like in the movie





The kids craft/dessert was making fruit hats like Lewis wears out of ice cream cones





I had gotten these ball shooter thingies because they reminded me of the dinner scene where they shoot the meatballs, unfortunately the toys were a bust but the kids still had fun throwing "meatballs" at each other!

Wreck it Ralph





Movie Snacks - Mario snacks, gummy cherries and chocolate covered Pac Man pretzels



The kids colored pictures from a coloring book I bought when I got the movie



I also printed out these activity books that they did while watching the movie




For dinner we had Burger Time burgers, Sonic rings and drank cherry 7up!



After dinner a few friends came over and we watched the movie for the second time (the first time was right after school). For a dessert/craft the kids made cars out of candy like in Sugar Rush!
