Extra Special Experiences for Preschoolers

One of the most frequent questions I get when working with a family to plan their Magical vacation is "How can we make our trip extra special for our kids?"  Obviously Disney World is packed full of fun, but sometimes parents or grandparents want to add a little extra magic.  With some personal attention and a little Disney magic, these extra special experiences can make your little ones feel like VIPs.

Enter a magical beauty salon and make your little girls dreams come true as she turns into a princess with the help of her very own Fairy Godmother-in-training.  Your princess can choose her hairstyle then her Fairy Godmother-in-training will go to work adding makeup, nail polish, and hair accessories.  With a wave of her wand, your little girl transforms into a princess right before your eyes.  Even boys can take part in this fun experience by being transformed into a heroic knight. 
You can partake in the magic of Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at 2 convenient locations: inside Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom theme park and at the World of Disney store in Downtown Disney Marketplace.

May the Force be with you!

Think you know the wilderness? Prove it! Dozens of self-guided activities await your arrival, with missions ranging from animal observation to learning all-too-important nature skills.

Each of the challenges has been scattered somewhere altogether different, so start exploring and get ready to experience Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park in an all-new way! Collect over 30 badges and earn the right to echo the Wilderness Explorer call—“Caw! Caw! Roar!”

Every challenge is totally different from the next. With each one you complete, you can collect a new sticker badge to place in your official Wilderness Explorer field guide.

Keep your tots entertained as you check out each international pavilion or simply take a load off while they color and draw.

See the Cast Member at any Kidcot Fun Stop to get a complimentary cardboard Duffy the Disney Bear for your child to decorate and personalize with the supplies provided at each station. Your friendly Cast Member will share insights about his or her native land, such as how to say “hello,” and give your child a stamp of Duffy in each country. Visit each Kidcot Fun Stop to collect them all!

Those wanting a more elaborate keepsake can purchase a World Showcase Passport to house their stamps. Each passport comes with a Mickey Mouse button and stickers for each country.

Monsters University Movie Themed Dinner

I am way behind on my blog posts...with the holidays, a Disney World Vacation, a couple of birthdays, and my job I have been BUSY!!!  

As we were counting down to our Disney World Vacation back in December we did monthly movie themed dinners.  The last one we did before our big trip was a Monsters University dinner.  This turned out to be one of my favorites...but the menu was a little challenging to come up with.  Being a new movie, I couldn't find ANY blogs about dinners....so I had to get creative. I hope this blog post will help someone out there who is planning a party or dinner.   

The Decorations:
The decorations were pretty easy since there is a whole section at Wal-Mart of Monsters University Party supplies.  I bought a tablecloth, napkins, plates, and the plastic cups.  I found a cute banner and the club signs online.  I printed a few pennants and taped them to pencils. I made my own menu and water bottle labels.




The Menu:
I went to the Monsters University website....YES, there is an actual website that looks like a real college site.  Under Campus Life, the listed dining options and one of the options was Monster Cafe-so I used their menu ideas for my meal and then added a few extra items.

Cheese Fries
Gross Beef Sandwiches (Hamburgers)
Jell-o Slime Jigglers
Chee-zits
Eye Scream Sundaes




 


Eye Scream Sundae Bar





The treats:
I found these cute printables for activity books and printed one out for each of the kids.  They also each got a Sulley Pez Dispenser to enjoy during the movie.

Here is your very own Movie Ticket Printable FREEBIE

3 MONTHS...Little Mermaid Dinner

As our family counts down to another Disney Vacation, we decided to do monthly movie themed dinners.  Our second movie themed dinner is...................

3 MONTHS TO GO!!

Our menu, of course, revolved around the movie.

The decorations were literally thrown together in about 30 minutes.  We had planned on waiting until Saturday to do the dinner, but realized this morning that we had something tomorrow night and Saturday...so it got bumped to tonight!

Our table decorations, complete with Ariel, Flounder, and Sebastian waiting to welcome us Under the Sea.  As the kids came in we had the song playing as well.  I told them we were doing the dinner, but the theme was a surprise.
 I took a couple of $.99 plastic tablecloths and cut them into strips to make streamers.  I draped them over the light...

I raided my Luau box and round some flower candle plates, a seashell town, seashells, stones, and leis.

Sebastian was in charge of the menu and proudly sat beside the frame. 

The kids got such a kick out of the movie tickets last month, that I knew they had to be a part of this months meal as well.  

More strips of tablecloth and crepe paper formed the sea curtain into the kitchen.  



 Ariel sat in the giant seashell and brushed her hair with a dinglehopper.

Our meal...
Ursula Dogs on seaweed, Ariel's Cheesy Sea Shells, King Triton's Titan bread stick, 
Flounder Ocean Water, and Sebastian Salad.




 

 

And for dessert...probably my favorite...and yes this was my original idea...
PEANUT BUTTER CUP OYSTERS!!  YUMMMMMMMMMMMYYY! 
(I saw other oyster ideas online, but nothing sounded good to me)

Ready for the movie to start, tickets in hand!


Tune in next month for our next Movie Themed Meal...I'm thinking either Lilo and Stitch, Car, or Toy Story...stay tuned!
