What better way to spend a night with other Disney obsessed fans than to host a Disney Vacation Planning Party! Not only was the party fun, but preparing for it was a blast! Jenny, a Swept Away Travel Planner and my sister, worked feverishly on building an amazingly huge and beautiful Mickey Mouse head which was made by three hola hoops and plastic table cloth strips. For food, we had Frozen and Minnie Mouse themed cupcakes, Mickey Ears taco dip, and Frozen white chocolate dipped marshmallows dipped in blue sparkle sprinkles! Let's not forget, our beverage was melted snow!
As our guests arrived we placed a sticker on their back (without them seeing it) and it had the name of a Disney themed character written on it. Our guests then had to mingle and ask other guests questions about the character on their back in order to figure out the answer and the first person to figure it out won a $25.00 Disney gift card.
Through the night we had several other raffles for additional gift cards and two amazingly packed baskets with Disney vacation must have items (such as Mickey ears, autograph book and pen, suntan lotion, Passporter's Walt Disney World 2014 book, Disney towels, Mickey Mouse water containers, bandaids and more!) We played a fun Disney trivia game and chatted about out of the box ways to save money while you plan your vacation.
We were also lucky enough to have a very knowledgable representative from Thirty-One on hand to go over her awesome line of bags and some handy packing tips, packing for a flight with children, and creative ideas for carting around your packed bag in the parks with stroller attachments and such.
The night was a success and everyone who came out had something to offer as far as fantastic advice to share with each other which was great! Planning a party like this would be beneficial to families traveling within the next year or so.
