On March 1st, I hosted a Moms’ Night In for a group of local friends in need of some #DisneySide cheer. We had a fabulous time reminiscing about our favorite Disney moments, playing games, and eating FROZEN-themed goodies.
After everyone arrived, put on their Cast Member name tag (thank goodness for my laminator) and had a cup of “Frozen” blue punch, we all gathered in the living room and played my own copy of Disney Movie Trivia. This wasn’t something I was sent, mind you, I scoured movie sites and used my own memory for the questions! Here are a couple of examples:
1. Which Disney song did NOT win an Academy Award?
a. “When You Wish Upon a Star” (Pinocchio)
b. “Chim Chim Cher-ee” (Mary Poppins)
c. “Beauty and the Beast” (Beauty and the Beast)
d. “Circle of Life” (The Lion King)
6. Who sang the Toy Story 2 song, “When Somebody Loved Me”?
a. Tori Amos b. Jewel c. Sarah McLachlan d. Joan Osborne
In case you’re wondering, the answers are d. “Circle of Life” — it’s “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” that won — and c. Sarah McLachlan. My friend Serena got the most answers right, so she won a set of Mickey-shaped cookie cutters and a DVD from my personal collection.
Then I asked a bunch of the Disney Trivia sent in the party kit, and whoever answered correctly received a point. At the end of all the questions, the person with the most points got another prize.
After taking a break to eat some custom FROZEN-inspired cupcakes courtesy of Partycake Partycake (look at those Elsa, Anna, Olaf, they’re AMAZING — and owner/baker Wendy delivers the cupcakes to your home if you live in the DC-area), we took turns adding our favorite Disney memories to my chalkboard and taking pictures with our answers. My best friend Mica (shown above with her Queen Elsa cupcake) fondly remembers going to see the Hoop-Dee-Doo revue with her family.
Other favorite memories included “Riding It’s a Small World with my three daughters,” “Space Mountain,” “Aladdin’s Carpet with my kids,” “Bachelorette Party at Magic Kingdom,” “Summer vacation,” “Haunted Mansion,” and more. I gave out more prizes and played Disney songs — mostly the “Frozen” soundtrack — let the moms enjoy a night of grown-up company and conversation. We all agreed that whether you’re going with your immediate family, a large reunion, or on a child-free getaway, Disney has something magical for every visitor.
I received free party ware and products in order to host my Disney Side @Home Celebration. Nevertheless, all the opinions expressed here are my own
