Our Family Showing Our #DisneySide with a Disney Trivia and Costume Party!

hosting a #DisneySide Party

I was super excited when I was selected to host a #DisneySide party awhile back, however, the real fright set in when I realized I needed to come up with a multigenerational theme party to fit children from toddler through adults. Let me tell you I went through several sheets of paper hammering out  my thoughts, such as menu, games, theme and exactly how was I going to select a date when everyone in our extended family would be able to attend.

Low and behold it all finally came together with a large group of 22, eleven adults and eleven children in attendance for our Disney Side trivia & costume party!

Caution this post is picture heavy!

As you can see the day before the party we started decorating and not a room was left unadorned. I was wondering how long it would take the children to notice the balloons WAY… above their heads against the living room ceiling. It wasn’t long. ;)

As the guys were airing up the balloons, we started hanging decorations and setting up for the guests. Note* yes, that is a cane holding the balloons down… however, it started floating up before they were finished. lol.

I placed our stuffed Mickey and Minnie on the fireplace mantel with a couple of inexpensive pictures frame filled with printed picture of Mickey and Minnie prints.

I reused some of the lovely purple shredded paper that was in my Disney Side party box as packing material, and besides I knew the girls would love the color.

disneyside23 table

I purchase a few inexpensive Disney toys for our table centerpiece and filled a couple of paper Mickey cups with Crayons for use during our games.

The girls decide grandma LeahSay didn’t quite have the Disney figures in the correct order. All better now! By the way, we have Alice on the left and Boo on the right.

DisneySide Party1

The entry way table contained treat boxes filled with candy for the guest at the end of the party, along with a long row of gift bags under the table! I purchased a few inexpensive Disney characters cups to use for candy storage and then as gifts. Once again I use inexpensive frames with Disney prints to decorate the entry table and the children ended up with a fun keepsake of our Disney Side party.

I provided a nail painting station for the girls to glam up their nails, which helped completed the princess costumes perfectly.

disneyside drink station

We set aside a complete area as a drink station. The color changing mugs were so much fun, and we placed permeant markers near the cups allowing the children to place their names on their cups, which they took home with them at the end of the night.

I baked blueberry and vanilla muffins and whipped up a big batch of Rice Crispy treats, which are always a huge hit with our family.

We went the paper plate route for this party, and let me tell you I’m so glad we did, at the end of the night it was toss or cover, and I was done.

disneyside11 food

The selection of sandwich foods was rounded out with a few appetizers along with fruit and chips, and dip.

Once everyone had eaten their fill (well, the first time around) we moved into groups and played Disney themed board games!

Next, we have two princesses and Boo battling it out in a game of Disney Candyland.

The boys are popping along in a game of Disney’s Frozen Trouble.

We gathered around the kitchen table to enjoy a game of Disney Parks Bingo. We used mini M&M’s and Junior Mints as game pieces which the children then placed in zip-baggies to take home with them. Starting on the right we have Minnie and Alice (sisters), Boo and then… (I’m terrible because grandma can’t remember what tuff stuff told me he was dress as).

Here we have all eleven of the children gathered around the table ready to play games! It was so much fun playing Disney trivia!

#DisneySide22 pinitafamily

Time for our Cars piñata filled with Disney snacks. We went with the pull string option since we were going to be indoors! Even the smallest of the children were able to participate. The funny thing was, the piñata didn’t open until the very last string was pulled! Talk about perfect timing!

We’re chatting up our game strategy, all the while continuing to dip back into the food as the munchies hit, again (winnings hard work).

Next, we move on to our Disney Photo Props, which my daughter and her children created in their homeschool class.

I was super excited when I was selected to host a #DisneySide party awhile back, however, the real fright set in when I realized I needed to come up with a multigenerational theme party to fit children from toddler through adults. Let me tell you I went through several sheets of paper hammering out  my thoughts, such as menu, games, theme and exactly how was I going to select a date when everyone in our extended family would be able to attend. Low and behold it all finally came together with a large group of 22, eleven adults and eleven children in attendance for our Disney Side trivia & costume party! #Disney #DisneyTrivia #costumeparty #DisneyTheme #DisneySide

Where one goes the other two are sure to follow… The boys are close in age and they enjoy egging each other on, but you gotta love those smiles.

My oldest granddaughter (the one play card games with and most of the time end up the looser.) as Maleficent. Believe it or not, she’s not too old to clown around with family!

Yes, I (LeahSay) was Minnie Mouse, well at least my headband looked the part. The children loved it and one of the little darlings managed to take it home with them at the end of the night.

She normally has a smile for everyone but this was toward the end of the night and I think she was ready for a cuppa milk and her favorite blanket.

Can you tell the costume trivia party became a little rowdy toward the end? Still a prize winning smile!

This little one follows me around throughout the week. She’s enjoying a house full of family to run a play with.

As the party wound down, each of the children and the families received a goodie bag along with a treat box at the door as they were headed out the door; along with all the fun party favors, we had throughout the evening.

    I can tell how much fun everyone had! Showing off your Disney side always results in lots of smiles!

  2. Rebecca Swenor

    It looks like the kids had a blast indeed. I love the idea of a Disney trivia and costume party. These are amazing ideas indeed. I love the nails station. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Ashley

    Oh my goodness, how very fun! We’re going to Disneyland later this year and I can’t WAIT for that infamous Disney magic!

    1. LeahSay

      Enjoy the Disney trip and show them your Disney Side.

  4. Ella

    My hubby will like this. Thanks for sharing

  5. Michele

    The party was obviously a success!! So many cute ideas you had and your grandchildren really were getting into it all-which was the main purpose!! Hey Grandma knows BEST.

    1. LeahSay

      Thank you Michele. Yes, sometimes grandma LeahSay has a few good ideas… 😉

  6. Maria

    What a fun party to host! Your little princess looked like she had a blast!

    1. LeahSay

      Oh Maria, we were equally exhausted by the end of the party but no one wanted to go home. I was actually surprised none of the boy’s we’re chasing around their sister princess with their pirate swards! Maybe I kept them too busy to realize a missed opportunity, however I’m sure they made up for it at home.

  7. HopscotchNJellybeans

    I would love to have gone to this party! From the decorations, goodies and costumes it looked like a lot of fun! I want to show my disney side now! LOL

    1. LeahSay

      I was hesitant at first to suggest a costume party, however everyone who wanted to participate did and those who didn’t, didn’t feel left out. Everyone had a wonderful time, so much so the event ended way later than I had scheduled. 😉

  8. Daisy

    What an amazing time! I would love to do something like this for my son to have some family fun together with friends.
