Plan your Disney Christmas party today.
Although this is certainly not the worst year that America has ever experienced, it’s definitely one that will go down in the history books because of how much the novel coronavirus has disrupted our lives. Even those who have remained healthy, which luckily accounts for the majority of citizens so far, the chaos that has ensued is even affecting this year’s holidays. Christmas isn’t cancelled, of course, but some of the traditions that go along with it won’t be happening this year.
Take Christmas at Disney World, for instance. Fan favorites such as Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and the Candlelight Processional at Epcot have both been canceled this year due to pandemic concerns and the need to follow social distancing guidelines. Visitors won’t even be able to experience a Star Wars Disney World Christmas this year!
While this is certainly disappointing to millions of fans, especially those who attend these events annually, you can always celebrate with your very own Disney Christmas party at home. Below, we’ve shared a few of our favorite suggestions.
Pick Up Some Mickey Christmas Decorations
The first thing you should do to create a Disney Christmas party is pick up several different types of decorations. Each year, there are tons of items are specifically created for the holiday featuring Mickey Mouse and many other characters. If you’re having a party for both children and adults, you can pick up a small collection of Christmas place settings that include plates, cups, and napkins with Disney characters on them.
Create Disney Christmas Party Invitations
Once you’ve decided on a date, time, and location of your Disney Christmas party, create some invitations for everyone. These days, it’s much more convenient to create evites, which have an almost countless number of decorating options. It won’t be difficult to find several types of evites featuring some of your favorite Disney characters.
Encourage Kids to Dress Up as Characters
Christmas may take place a couple of months after Halloween, but that doesn’t mean kids can’t dress up for this holiday, too. The most popular modern Christmas movie is Frozen, so that’s definitely one idea that you can go with. They should feel free to dress up as any Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, or Marvel character they wish. These costumes will definitely add something to the festivities.
Make Disney-Themed Snacks and Goodies for your Disney Christmas Party
Anyone who’s been to Disney World knows that food is a pretty big part of the experience. You can bring this home with you by creating Disney-themed snacks and goodies made specifically for Christmas. You can bake up some Mickey-shaped cookies or cakes, for instance. You can also make little Olafs with marshmallows, pretzel sticks, and a couple other items!
Play a Few Disney Christmas Movies
Disney movies are always a fantastic way to keep both adults and children entertained. The most popular Disney Christmas titles include the two Frozen movies, the Santa Clause trilogy, A Christmas Carol, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Santa Buddies, and many others. These movies are always family-friendly (though Santa does fall off a roof in one of them) and often teach valuable lessons that are healthy for the youngsters. However, if you’re thinking about making it a Star Wars Disney World Christmas by getting hold of a copy of the infamous holiday special, you might want to think twice about it.
Give Out Disney-Inspired Gift Baskets
Creating gift baskets for the kids that are full of Disney toys, books, and other items is the perfect way to celebrate the holiday. There are so many different things that you can choose from that the hardest part will be deciding what to include. As soon as you present the gift baskets to the kids, their eyes will absolutely light up. Behold, the power of Disney!
Disney-Styled Gift Wrapping
Disney-themed wrapping paper has always been popular for many celebrations, especially birthdays and Christmas. They can also be found at weddings and similar venues. You can either choose to use wrapping paper that specifically has a Disney Christmas theme, or you can simply go with any type of Disney character. If you’re having a Disney Christmas party, try to always have themed paper on hand in case anyone shows up with a present that hasn’t been wrapped yet.
