6 Things You Must Have For a Super Fun #DisneyKids Preschool Play Date

This past weekend, I got to host a super cool and fun #DisneyKids Preschool playdate for my youngest and a few of her preschool friends, courtesy of Disney.

I was chosen to host my first Disney Preschool Play date and it was awesome! My youngest is 5 so she just made the cut as this party caters to pre-school aged children between the ages of 2 and 5 years of age.

The Mystery Package

We had no clue what we were going to receive in the mail or what the theme would be. And I didn’t tell my kids what was going on until they were…well, opening up the suitcase.

Check out our unboxing video we shared on Instagram Stories:

In our package we received:

  • An HP Card Kit to create fun invitations for the party (here’s what I created with the mobile app below)
  • HP Social Media Snapshots paper (enough to share with all of our guests in their goody bags)
  • Disney party supplies
  • Disney-themed games (they really thought of everything: matching, charades, fortune tellers and more)
  • Yummy popcorn from Pop Secret
  • Dora Pillow Pet (that my little one loves sooo much)
  • Softsoap hand wash plus lotion
  • Disney themed activities and recipes

The Endless Magic

Here are a few photos of the kids unboxing the Sofia the First suitcase full of preschool goodies for the #DisneyKids play date.

No clue why all of my watermarks saved upside down but y’all know what it says 🙂

While I had to explain to the older two that the party was for the little kids, they were just as excited to be host and hostess (and helped out a good bit)

Before we knew it, it was time to let the par-tay begin!

6 Things You Must Have For a Super Fun #DisneyKids Preschool Play Date:

1. Balloons

Balloons are like a preschool aged kid’s kryptonite. Get balloons. Lots of them. Seriously, I wish I had taken more photos of the kids and the fun they had with the balloons. They were the life of the party right along with the snacks and juice boxes.

I purchsed several blue and white Mickey Mouse balloons at this local Party Depot store. That’s all I had intented and then I saw they had these “life-size” Mickey and Minnie Mouse balloons, and well, there was no way I could not get them.

The funny thing about this princess is that she wanted nothing to do with these two when she got to the party. But by the time it was ending, she was taking them to look out the window and having a real conversation with them. LOL

2. Disney kids photobooth

Speaking of these balloons, they made for great props in our photo booth. Now, trying to get more than 2 preschoolers to look at the camera at the same time is nearly impossible. But we tried (at least 27 times last I counted the photos). These are the ones that made the cut.

How many snaps does it take to get a decent photo of preschoolers? Good question.

3. Disney Party Supplies

We were given pretty much everything we needed (as seen in the unboxing video and photos above). There is just something about seeing Mickey on just about everything. From plates, cups, table cloths, napkins, balloons and a few other things, there was no choice but to be happy and cheery!

We were able to bring a piece of Walt Disney World into the home with these party supplies! The magic truly was endless.

I loved these reversable Sofia the First and Jake the Pirate crowns. They were perfect!

4. Fun & easy crafts

Disney provided us with several craft options. I learned that less is better with a younger crowd. We had plans to play the matching game for the little ones and cherades for the older kids, but that didn’t happen.

Instead, they enjoyed putting together these Disney characters (found at a local craft store)

That’s about as far as we got before the balloons took over the party. But I’m so glad because our family now has some extra crafts and games we can continue to play with.

5. Less mess finger foods & treats

I absolutely love the Mickey cookie cutter set I purchased online. I wanted to have foods that were preschool friendly and would make a minimal amount of mess. Sandwhiches were my first choice, so of course: why not make them Mickey Mouse shaped?

We also provided some goldfish, juice boxes, mini chicken salad sandwhiches, hot diggity dogs, fruit salad, popcorn and of course, cupcakes! I found the cupcake stand online as well.

I absolutely loved these adorable cupcake toppers and wrappers. It made it less work and they are super cute!

6. Magic-filled goody bags

I was so excited that we received goody bags in our packages. That meant I got to fill it with some cool things. I am so sad that I could not find the photos I took of the individual items we put in the bags. But thanks to Disney, each kid got to take home a pack of HP Photo Snapshot removable sticky photo paper (as shown in the unboxing video).

I also included some preschool kids favorites like playdoh, mini coloring books, and crayons. I also found some cute Disney themed stamps and included those as well.

#DisneyKids Preschool Party

If you are planning on throwing your child a Disney themed birthday party, just know that Disney has got you covered. They have absolutely everything you’ll need so that your kid can brag to all their friends about how cool their mommy is.

I was so happy that one of my moms was planning on throwing a Mickey birthday party for their daughter this month. So guess who got to enjoy lots of these party supplies?! It was a win-win since I didn’t have to figure out what to do with everything.

It actually made me a little sad because I realized my youngest will no longer be considered a preschooler after this month 🙁

Disney truly made it easy and fun to throw this “just because” party together. But now I have to explain to my kids that it’s not going to be an all-the-time kind of thing 🙂

My daughters and great-niece

Thank you Disney for making this a magically fun play date that allowed myself and the other moms to create lasting memories!

    You did an amazing job! Definitely finger foods is needed when you have preschoolers. I threw a Disney themed party for Madison at her school this year for her 5th birthday and the kids loved it. The girls were princesses while the boys stuff were Star Wars inspired. 🙂

      Aww thanks so much AnnMarie! They really loved all of the finger foods and it made clean-up a breeze! Oh I know you did a great job with Madison’s party. That is too cute. We didn’t do a 5th birthday for Brielle as we were in the process of moving, so this definitely made up for it 🙂

    This looks like it was so much fun! I know my son and his friends would love the photo booth. They still love all things Disney, so I’m going to have to do one of these soon!

      Yes girl! You don’t even have to have a reason to do it. And now that the weather is getting warmer out, we may just bring it back out really soon 🙂

    Oh boy! As Mickey would say…What a wonderful party idea! I have had some Disney themed movie night parties for my daughter and I, but have not done a playdate party. I loved all the little details and wish my soon to be 6 yr old had this when she was in preschool. How cool!
