Celebrating an upcoming Disney trip is something we all look forward to — especially in our family!
This past December we went on our biggest Walt Disney World trip yet. We spent 11 days at WDW staying at Boardwalk Inn. Our trip covered the dates December 18-28, 2012 and included Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, Christmas Eve breakfast at Cinderella’s Royal Table, and lots and lots of great food.
I stumbled across the idea of dinner & Disney movie nights almost 2 years ago now. I talked to my husband to see if it was something he was interested in doing as a family, and then we started them in October 2011.
So what exactly are these special movie nights you ask?? Pick a movie (we gave everyone turns at picking out movies) – some movies we owned, some we rented. Once a movie was picked, I would try to theme our dinner to the movie. For example, Beauty and the Beast takes place in France, so I would try and come up with something French. You can decorate if you would like, sometimes I did, other times I did not. Then we would watch the movie after dinner. Sometimes we would do a dinner & Disney movie night every weekend, other months we might only do 1 or 2, just depending on our schedule.
We still have dinner & Disney movie nights in our house — sadly, we do not have a family trip booked at the time, but the kids had so much fun with these, they asked if we could continue them.
