*Disney and Mom Select hired me to host a Disney Kids playdate. All opinions are my own and not swayed by outside sources.*
Disney is magical! There is truly nothing like it in this world. We love Disney so much that we try to go every year and on the years we can’t make it there, we try to go on a Disney cruise. This October, my family will embark on our second Disney cruise on the Disney Magic. All three of my kids, their very first words were Mickey Mouse. Yes we are a totally obsessed Disney family and I am quite okay with that!
In my eyes there is no better time to visit Disney than when your children are young and the magic is real, right before their very own eyes. To prepare us for our next Disney outing and to get Taylor’s friends interested in going to Disney World one day, we held our very own toddler #DisneyKids Playdate.
Taylor, my almost 3 year old, is very lucky in that she has some incredible friends! They have been friends since they were very little and they have this awesome bond. They also share a love of all things princesses (and princes) so the party was quite easy to put together!
Thanks to Disney parks, we were given some awesome favors inside a new Sofia the First suitcase from American Tourister. Taylor is grateful that she now has a new suitcase she can wheel around when we go on our cruise in the fall. We set out the party favors on a desk and had the kids make their own goody bags once the party ended. Minnie Sunglasses, Disney Pencils, Disney stickers, and more completed the gift bag. I also supplemented to make sure each child had enough to go home with.
To set up, I bought some fun Disney items from our local party store, as well as, Amazon. Some of the items I got were princess banners, princess centerpieces, signs, and balloons. Taylor and I had fun decorating the basement that morning for all her little princesses and prince friends. Complete with the Nemo Pillow Pet, it was already turning into a great party.
For games we did a princess matching game, build your own princess fort, and then ended with a showing of Moana in our basement. We have a home theater in our basement so the kids loved watching one of the hottest new movies after the games.
