Have you ever dreamed of having a party like in the Disney movies? If so, this blog post is for you. It’s time to get creative and have some fun with your friends, family members, or even coworkers! We’ll show you how to create an event that will be perfect for all ages – just like magic!
* Invite Guests: It’s important to let your friends and family know about the upcoming party! Here are some ideas on how to get started.
– Send out an invitation that looks like a Disney character or movie ticket – perhaps even include a photo of yourself in costume acting as that character! This is always fun for kids, but also works well for adults who want to dress up too.
– If you’re having trouble deciding what kind of theme or characters should be included in your invitation, look through your favorite movies and choose some scenes from one of them. For example, if you love The Little Mermaid , try using this scene with Ariel and Eric . You can use any image from Google images (or ask permission!) to use in your invitation.
– If you want to get more creative, make the party invite yourself! Draw on it with markers or create an artistic design using software like Photoshop . A few ideas for characters and scenes can be found here , but don’t feel limited by them – choose anything that seems right to you. This will not only serve as a fun way of inviting friends, but is also great if you’re looking for decorating inspiration (especially when finding ways to incorporate Disney into everything from decorations to food).

If people are having trouble deciding what kind of costumes they should wear, send out some form of “costume” dress code so everyone knows exactly how big of a role character outfits need to play at this event.
* Decorations: Disney themed parties are known for their bright colors, so try to incorporate this into your party decor. You can do this by using the same color schemes found in some of these classic movies .
– For example, if you choose The Little Mermaid , Ariel’s sea green and Eric’s red would be perfect choices!
– If you’re not sure where to start when it comes to decorations, look through Pinterest or Etsy for ideas that seem like something you’d like (be sure to type “Disney theme” before searching). All kinds of things come up! It’s also a good idea to bring along any Disney characters on your phone or tablet; even just having them out during the event is great inspiration for finding new decor ideas.
– If you’re feeling crafty, consider making some decorations yourself! We’ve found lots of inspiration here .
* Food: For party food, it’s important to choose something that will be easy to share with everyone and look great on a plate (we don’t want people thinking the only option was pizza!). Here are our top picks for Disney themed foods – feel free to mix and match them as much or little as you’d like!
– Mickey Mouse shaped snacks , such as fruit skewers with banana eyes and marshmallows ears, Rice Krispie treats in any shape, including this one from All Recipes made into an orange peel for Goofy ‘s face) using melted white chocolate chips), chocolate covered pretzels, and brownies cut into squares with a cookie cutter.
– For something savory, you can either choose to have the same kind of food as everyone else (like chips & dip), or think outside the box! Disney Chicken Pot Pies are perfect for this – just put them in cute plastic bowls that look like Mickey’s face from Target . It would also be easy to make these yourself by using a small bowl and cutting out felt pieces for eyes). If you’re not feeling crafty but still want to follow along with our theme, find some shapes online (see here) and print them on card stock paper before cutting them out. You could even use mashed potatoes instead of pie crust; it might sound weird but is surprisingly delicious!
* Activities: This may be the most important part of planning a Disney themed party – it’s not fun if everyone sits and eats food all night. There are so many options for activities you can do with your friends, from watching classic movies to playing games on smartphone apps .
– If there were any scenes in some of these movies that stood out as being particularly funny or dramatic (for example, Scar ‘s death scene from The Lion King ), see if you can find them online and have a movie marathon at home before going to this event. It will just feel more special if people have already watched those scenes beforehand. – Hosting trivia questions about Disney movies throughout the party also makes it more interesting. For example, in The Little Mermaid , if a player gets a question wrong about Ariel’s age they have to wear a piece of octopus attire (like this hat from Etsy or these glasses from Amazon). – Ask everyone who brings their phone for trivia questions and/or Disney song lyrics to sing. If you want something more challenging, see how many people can get through the entire movie soundtrack without messing up.
* Costumes: Okay, so not everyone wants to dress up as their favorite Disney character… but that’s okay! There are lots of other costumes available at Halloween time that would fit into this theme nicely.
– A pretty easy costume is Alice in Wonderland . All you need is white knee high socks and black flats shoes, a blue dress, and some white hair spray to make your hair look messy. If you have blonde or red hair it’s even easier – just wear all black! – Another easy one would be Queen of Hearts . Find an old red dress with puffy sleeves (even if it has stains on the bottom), put lots of makeup around your eyes in a creepy way , team up with someone else who can play cards for everyone at this party, and voila!
* Entertainment: Sometimes kids are the most fun part about having them over because they love playing games. Here are our top Disney themed games that work well for adults too :
– Never Have I Ever Questions This is great when there’s more than three people at your party. Write down some of the classic lines from Disney movies and ask each person if they’ve ever done that thing in real life (for example: “Never have I ever given a piggyback ride”). Whoever has to drink then says, “I know something you don’t know…” and tells them what line will be asked next. – Who Am I? Sometimes it’s fun to play games where people can also get really close together like this one! Everyone sits on the floor in a circle with their eyes closed while someone walks around touching everyone else (without any talking). When they’re done walking around, whoever is touched gets to go into another room for five minutes while everyone else makes up who they think he or she is by asking each other questions. Once the five minutes are up, that person comes back into room and everyone has to guess who they were (for example: “Who am I?” – “You’re Ariel!”). Whoever guesses correctly gets a point, but if you want it to be more challenging try removing one of their ears so they can’t hear any talking while in another room!
– Disney Song Lyrics Everyone knows at least one Disney song by heart which makes this game perfect for adults or kids alike . Sit two people across from each other with paper and pencils; when someone sings just one word of a line from a song both players have 30 seconds to write down as many variations on that line as possible before singing the next part. The winner is the person with the most lines written down at the end of a certain amount of time (for example: “You got to be swift as a coursing river” might become “running water”, “lightning”, and so on).
– Disney Trivia This is great for groups! Play in teams or go solo. For trivia, you can either write it yourself or look online but make sure that everyone has an equal chance to answer each question before moving onto another one. If someone gets it wrong they have to do something silly like take off their shoes until all questions are answered correctly. – Last, but definitely not least… sing karaoke! Pull up your favorite songs from movies like The Little Mermaid , Mulan , Mary Poppins , or even Frozen . Make sure you have some great speakers to play the music loud so people can hear!
– Other Ideas:
* If you want less noise, maybe try renting a movie theater for your party. They’ll give you snacks and drinks too! * Get some Disney themed plates, napkins, cups/glasses (depending on whether they’re reusable or disposable), utensils etc. You could also get character balloons that everyone can take home with them at the end of the night if they’d like. * A fun way to get ready is by doing face painting ! There are lots of different designs out there – from generic ones to super specific characters like Aladdin’s monkey Abu or Rapunzel’s pet chameleon Pascal. * You could also get a photobooth to take pictures with friends and family at the party. Just make sure you have a friend or even yourself on hand to help out!
Now, that’s it! Now you can make your own Disney Themed party!
