We’re going to Disney!!! As usual, I wanted to do a fun little announcement for the boys.
A Disney dinner and game night on the porch was the perfect way to get everyone excited.
I used my Mickey cookie cutter to make grilled cheese sammies. A crowd fave and easy to boot. Actually… hold that thought. It would have been easy except that my bread was WAY too small for my cookie cutter so I had to use multiple pieces of bread and put them together. Yeaaaahhhhh….
I used my smaller Mickey cookie cutter on watermelon. First I cut slices and then I used the cookie cutter to get the Mickey heads. The extras just went into a bowl for lunches.
Dessert definitely stole the show!! I wanted a lot of little treats to get us through the game night. I had purchased the mini Mickey cheese crackers in Disney and I made the sweets:
I had completely forgotten about my mini-Mickey waffler until bestie M sent me a link to one saying “something you might like”. I like it so much, in fact, that I OWN it. Ha! Now, since I was doing a dinner and not breakfast, I used it for brownies. SO easy and very festive. The trick is to mix your box of brownie batter as stated. Then stir in an extra egg. Cover the bottom half of the waffle iron with the batter and cook for 5 minutes. One box made 12 Mickey brownies.
Mickey Rice Crispie Treats
I made them in a large baking pan so that they wouldn’t be too thick to cut through with the cookie cutter. Before pouring it in, I lined the pan in foil and sprayed. After pouring them in I pressed them down well with another piece of greased foil. One they had cooled, I pulled the whole thing out of the pan and cut with cookie cutters.
Mickey Pretzel Treats
I’ve made these so many times with various chocolates and candies. Line a baking sheet with foil and spread out a layer of butter snap pretzels. On each pretzel, place a white melting chocolate. Preheat oven to 170. Bake until chocolate is semi-melted. Mine took about 6 minutes. You want it melty, but still in its round shape. Working quickly, place one regular sized m&m and two mini m&m’s on each piece to make a Mickey head.
We have collected the Mickey straws on various Disney trips. In a few different restaurants you can add them on for $0.59.
I’ve been looking high and low for a cute Mickey door hanger and was thrilled to find this one from Fort Sturgeon on etsy.
We had the best time playing our favorite games from our Disney collection!! All except for Disney Hedbanz were purchased in the park. When we go on longer trips we usually purchase a game at the beginning of our stay and then play it in the room during down times.
The rest of the pics speak for themselves. It was all fun and games, laughs and grins.
We do love our Disney celebrations. It’s so much fun to kick off the magic at home and then have something to look forward to all week!!!
