My #DisneySide @Home Celebration Party Package Came!

Friday, January 23, 2015

DISCLOSURE:  I received free products in order to host the Disney Side @Home Celebration.  The opinions expressed here are my own.

I'm so excited to be hosting a #DisneySide @Home Celebration party for the second year in a row!  Ever since I found out I was selected as a host, I had been stalking the UPS My Choice site, looking for a package. On the day it was to be delivered, my preschooler and I kept looking out the window every time we heard something that sounded like a truck pass by! My son would look out the window and say sadly, "No package."

By mid-afternoon, the package still hadn't arrived. It was time to walk over to the school to pick up my older kids. On the walk back, I saw the UPS truck at a house down the street from mine. We started getting excited and practically ran home! There it was, right outside the house! I wish I had my camera with me to capture the kids' excitement before my 7-year-old brought the box inside.

Mickey and Minnie were pretty excited to get a box of Disney fun!

But, not as excited as these kids!

I had planned on filming the unboxing, but it got kind of crazy, so we'll have to do it with pictures.

As the kids took things out of the box, there were a lot of exclaims of "Wow" and "Ooh!" The kids were getting even more excited about the party. There were so many things packed into that box!

One of the things that was most exciting for me to receive were the baking supplies! The party kit included a Wilton Mickey Mouse pan, a box of Duff Tie-Dye Cake Mix and Wilton Sprinkles! I was thinking about buying this cake pan last year and I'm glad I didn't. I also have been curious about the Duff cake mixes. I've seen them at Target and have always wondered how they tasted. I've tried his fondant and other cake decorating things and really liked them. And I can never have enough sprinkles in the house!

The party kit included some fun Mickey and Minnie party supplies, like a cupcake stand, hanging decorations, a tablecloth, napkins, cups, snack bags, and treat holders.

Also included were a variety of Disney games and activities, like Pin The Smile on Mickey, Disney Bingo, Disney Trivia, a Word Search, and a Tree of Life Family Tree.

It was awesome to see a lot of cool favors to pass out to party guests.  The kit included nail polish, pencils, stickers, Disney luggage tags, coupons, and a Disney Palace Pets toy. I'm planning on buying a lot of other things to give out as prizes and favors for goody bags.

Speaking of goody bags, the party kit included some really nice reusable totes, courtesy of ABC Family, and a nice water bottle.

Since I had a multi-generational theme, the kit included some fun for the grown ups like Twinings tea, Soy Vay Teriyaki Sauce, All and Wisk laundry detergents.

Finally, the party package also included party invitations, a party guide full of activities and recipes and the 2014 Disney Planning DVD. I actually received the 2015 Disney Vacation Planning DVD and plan on showing it to guests at the party!

Thank you so much to Mom Select, Disney Parks, and all the wonderful sponsors for the chance to host another Disney Side @Home Celebration!
