Disney-Themed Birthday Ideas
There’s something that shifts in your life when you have a child – the moments that you had grown tired of over the years suddenly are breathed a new energy. Quite literally, that is! Though you might have shrugged off your birthday in years past, planning the annual celebration of your little guy or gal becomes a whole new, fun challenge of making their dreams come true. Even if their sugar high is sometimes a lot to handle – especially when 10 of their friends match their enthusiasm – the images and memories of them blowing out their candles and squealing over their presents will be treasured for decades to come. If you’ve passed down your deep affection for all-things Disney to those rugrats, there’s nothing quite as appropriate as a themed birthday party that celebrates a new lap around the sun and their beloved characters. From Sleeping Beauty and Brave to Cars and Minnie Mouse herself, gather inspiration from these bloggers who threw killer parties. (And psst, if you want to take the experience to a new level, contact one of our specialized travel agents today who can help you organize a party at Disney World!)
Sleeping Beauty Birthday Party
Though an old fashioned classic by now, if Sleeping Beauty holds a special place in your heart, your little princess-in-the-making might share your love. As one of the most memorable moments in the film when Princess Aurora’s dress changes from pink and blue, let the color scheme inspire your party planning. One blogger created sweets with roses atop, a DIY tutu station and represented cascading shades from the serving table to the favors and beyond.
Brave Birthday Party
No matter if your child is a boy or gal, it’s always #parentgoals to raise a brave child. Thankfully, Disney knew this and created a beloved film to express this sentiment. If you want to supercharge your kiddo’s backbone, throw a party based on the movie they watch on repeat. From setting up a kid-friendly archery session and providing an arts and crafts station to make a coat of arms to decorating with elements inspired by Scotland, this blogger went the extra mile to make every detail Brave-flavored.
Minnie Mouse Birthday Party
As the leading lady of Disney’s kingdom, there’s something timeless – and adorable! – about Minnie Mouse. She’s not only Mickey’s partner-in-imagination, but she’s sassy and full of spirit, just like that toddler of yours. One blogger decided to take a more modern approach to having a Minnie Mouse bash. Because she didn’t want to buy anything that was store bought, she drew her fodder from specific details and elements of Minnie Mouse herself – from the polka dots to ear-decorated sweets and a Minnie mobile for decor.
Cars Birthday Party
Even if your 6-year-old is counting down to when he can drive a car like a ‘big boy’ – you’re probably praying the years go by slowly, as the thought of him behind a wheel is enough to warrant a shot of tequila. For the boy who wants to always go fast, says ‘vroom, vroom’ more than he says anything else and makes you watch Cars at least a few times a week, theme his party as a ‘wheelie’ like this blogger did.
Start your engines! Boys, both big and small, love cars — and it’s almost certain that your little man also loves the movie Cars. Throw him a “wheelie” cool party for his next birthday, inspired by the movie. Temporary tattoos to races in the backyard, racer fuel and competitions all make this party one-of-a-kind (just like your little guy!).
A Peter Pan Party
Up, up and away will be your kid’s excitement as you take their love of the forever-kid, Peter Pan, into a soaring birthday party. What’s nice about this classic film as it lends itself to all of the sweet sentiments of childhood, with fairy dust and the idea of living in Never, Never Land. To steal some of these ideas from a blogger who transformed her home into quite the imaginary world, don’t forget pirate eye patches, temporary tattoos, pixie dusts, costumes for boys and gals, and of course, teepees!
