Let’s Have a Disney Side Party ! #DisneySide 2015

(I was sent a #DisneySide at home celebration kit to host our party. all experience and opinions are 100% my own. Get tips for creating your own Disney Side celebration at www.disneysidecelebrations.com)

Disney. It really IS just pure magic, isn’t it? I don’t just mean Disney World, Disneyland, or Cinderella’s castle. It supersedes a geographic location. The magic of Disney comes alive anywhere and anytime you mention it. Even those who have never visited a Disney park understand the magic. Maybe it was a movie, a toy, or even a song that inspired you to fall in love with Disney. No matter your age, gender, color, or country – the magic of Disney & the love of mouse ears are universal.

our Disney side party 2015

A few weeks ago we shared that we were selected as hosts for a multigenerational Disney Side at home celebration. We received a box full of Disney goodies from the Disney Parks team to share with our guests. Our littles did and unboxing video ( check it out here) to share what was inside- boy, were they excited! We’ve talked often about how much we love our neighbors on the street. So, it just seemed logical that we would invite everyone into our Disney Side Party to share our communal love of Disney.Disney Side snacksMid-morning, we set up in the driveway for treats and games. It wasn’t long before everyone had come to join in the fun. The kids asked if they could dress in costume- YES please! We had a Merida, a tinkerbell, and some “heros”. Every story needs a hero, right.

Kids and adults created Disney chalk drawings ( which totally brought to mind the chalk paintings Bert did in Mary Poppins)

We had fun playing “Put the smile Mickey”

We didn’t limit the Disney fun to just those on the invite list. The BEST thing about doing our party outside was the neighbors who were just out for a walk stopped to join the fun. The kids would ask them a Disney trivia question and offer them a prize too. Everyone has a little Disney magic in them!

As our party guests began to tire from all the fun and afternoon naps approached, we sent them off with plenty of activities and games to continue the fun at home. In true Disney fashion, we exceeded their expectations and went a step further. Our Disney princess guests took home some favors of mini-manicure polish and EVERYONE had plenty of fun things in their family goody bags.

A wonderful time was had by all. I think Brother Bear summed up our day best with this line: “Telling stories and laughing with friends: precious moments you’ll never forget.”

    • Coucou Céline ! Bravo pour cette adorable carte très originale par sa mise en scène via le jeu de forme ! Ta colorisation est top et j'adore les eminllbssemeets que tu as utilisés !! Gros bisouNeige

    • I’ve got to be honest with you – the first time I put these Monster Studio headsets on, I wondered how headphones such as these are capable to produce outstanding base. It was amazing! It honestly felt like you were in your own studio with Dre right beside you. If you’re like me, and can’t go a day without listening to music, these headphones will become your best friend.

  6. This looks like a super fun party! I love that all the kids were wearing costumes.

  22. This insight’s just the way to kick life into this debate.

  23. The damage these evil men have caused is incalculable. And they still haven’t learned. The damage done by these ignorant men will be borne by gay and lesbian people who have the misfortune of being (or becoming) Mormon and the people who marry them because of the idiocy of these stupid, stubborn, selfish old men.

  24. If your articles are always this helpful, “I’ll be back.”
