Show Your Disney Side
 In December, I applied to host a #DisneySide @Home Celebration with Disney Parks and Mom Select.  Earlier this month, I found out that I was selected to be a host!  I was so excited to get this email.  At the time, I was in the middle of planning and implementing my son's 5th Birthday party, which was a Star Wars theme.  I'm still trying to recover from that and get my photos organized so I can share them with all of you!
On Monday of this week, I got my #DisneySide box!  I was thrilled to receive this gift.  When I opened the box, I found a fabulous black American Tourister suitcase as my hostess gift.  I can't wait to use it on our next vacation!  Inside the bag were all the supplies I might need to host a #DisneySide party.  
 The items included were:
  • a Disney luggage tag to use with the luggage
  • HP Photo cards to print invitations and photos from the party
  • Mickey Mouse Clubhouse party supplies (plates, napkins, cups, cupcake liners, table cloth and swirl decorations)
  • Mickey Mouse cookie cutters
  • The Chew measuring cups
  • Craisins
  • Recipe Cards
  • Muppets postcard calendars
  • Mickey and Minnie "So This Is Love" Lithographs by Will Gay
  • RunDisney bumperstickers, bracelets and cheer cards
  • Story iPhone5 Case
  • Donald Tatoos
  • Mickey Stickers
  • Disney Parks planning DVD
  • Disney Parks Trivia Cards
  • Disney Parks Bingo Cards
  • Instructions on how to paint faces
  • Welcome packet with additional ideas, recipes and games
Now, the big question is...

What kind of party am I going to host?!?!

We have two ideas swirling through our heads right now:
  1. A Magic Kingdom Party.  Taking a "tour" through the lands of the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World with different activities, crafts, games and foods that represent all the lands.
  2. A "March Madness" Disney Party.  Since the party is going to be March 1 and our family loves sports and Disney, we thought about combining the two!  We are trying to figure out a way to have the families compete together and play Disney games (Bingo and Trivia were included in our pack!) and compete in some sort of bracket.  BUT, I have to figure out a way to make sure everyone is a winner!! :)
What are your thoughts?  Which party should I host?
