MeMom - Loved it! I like how the safari was a hunt for the animals, and then you get a whole great set of new toys to play with! Your Pizzafari meal is making me hungry! Especially the brownies!

Does anybody have any ideas for a "Night Before We Leave For Disney" Theme? It would realistically have to be low-fuss for the night before vacation. I have read that someone likes to have a pizza picnic on a blanket on the floor of the living room and watch the planning video. Any other ideas we can compile?

Twas the night before Disney,
and all through the house,
no one was sleeping,
because they'd soon see the Mouse!

The children were stuffing
their backpacks with treats-
coloring books and videos
and all kinds of sweets!


For the night before you leave, definitely you want to have paper goods so you can trash it all! If your trip is pretty soon, you could just go get McDonald's Happy Meals with the Pirates and Princesses themes. A picnic while watching a classic Disney movie or the planning video sounds good.

Maybe play an ABC game to see if you can list Disney park things that begin with each letter: Astro Orbiter, Buzz Lightyear, etc.

Talking Star Wars?

First off, love love love this thread! I've been searching for ideas to incorporate after we finally tell the kids...and here it is!

DH found a Star Wars cook book at our local library book sale (50 cents baby! )

So I only have recipe ideas, but here are a few:

Breakfast:
Princess Leia Danish Dos
C-3P0 Pancakes
Twin Sun Toast
Mos Eisley Morsels
Oola-la French Toast

Beverages:
Hoth Chocolate
Skywalker Smoothies
Jawa Jive Milkshakes
Yoda Soda

Snacks & Sides:
Dark Side Salsa
Ewok Eats
The Force Fruit Fun
Tusken Raider Taters
Jabba Jiggle
Jedi Juice Pops

Main Courses:
Greedo's Burritos
Han-Burgers
Obi-Wan Kebabs
Galaxy Grilled Cheese
Boba Fett-uccine
Crazy Cantina Chili
TIE Fighter Ties

Desserts: Darth Vader Dark Chocolate Sundaes
Wookie Cookies
Bossk Brownies
Death Star Popcorn Balls
Wampa Snow Cones
R2-D2 Treats
Sandtrooper Sandies

If anyone wants any of those recipes, I'll be happy to type them up for you. Most of them are pretty basic, but very cute and clever! I also haven't googled any of them, so I'm not sure if they are on the net or not.

Keep the great ideas coming!

aristocats party...

just wanted to send another "thanks" to princesstigerlilly for getting all of this together! we did our Aristocats party last week and it was great!

we made crepes and the posted recipe for creme de la creme a la edgar...oh my gosh, that was the most deliciously, sinfully, fabulous thing i have made from scratch in years! the kids loved it and went through about 2 pounds of strawberries which they dipped into it!

before dinner, we made the Eiffel Tower on our living room wall (i outlined the shape with paint tape while they cut strips of paper. they then taped the strips of paper to the paint tape in "X" shapes to make the interior structure). it was nothing fancy, but they are 5, they don't mind!:



it was cold last week, so i set up a little "cafe" table by the door wall with a candle and small wine glasses. (i was their french server). the broccoli and cheese crepe recipe that i found online wasn't a huge hit, but they ate enough strawberries, cheese, and french bread for me to count it as a meal!

the highlight of the meal is when i served them the creme de la creme in a dish for them to lick up!

after dinner, we went on a "tour" of paris that included getting their pic. taken in front of the eiffel tower, and at then end of the night, we did finally get around to watching a bit of the movie!

it was a great night, and i'm looking forward to hearing any more "night before the trip" ideas. i usually go for homecooked meals becasue i know we'll be eating carry out/fast/restaurant food for the next 10 days, but i LOVE the pizzafari idea, combined with an animal safari. so, so cute!

I am so happy everyone is enjoying all the posts! asktriplets, I love how your Aristocats night went, and I love the eiffel tower on the wall, very clever!

I can't believe I am admitting these to my Disney peers, but I have never seen the full movie of The Nightmare Before Christmas! EEK! 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"!!
