2/22/15; DisneySide At Home Celebration

I am a bit of a Disney Parks fanatic.  I love going to them, talking about them and helping others plan vacations.  In fact this past year I applied to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and made it all the way to round 4 which was quite an accomplishment as the search started with about 15,000 and I made it to Round 4 with about 100.  I unfortunately did not make the panel but the Disney Parks gave me another opportunity to share my Disney love by having a #DisneySide @Home Celebration.
It was a wonderful opportunity to invite some of the kids friends over and have them show off their #DisneySide.  

This was our third Disney Parks at home celebration.  Here you can see a recap of last year, and here was our party from 2010.
There were so many great sponsors included in the Party Pack that I received including HP, all laundry detergent, Duff's Cake Mix, Snuggle Fabric Softner, Disney Palace Pets, Wisk Deep Clean, and some great Mickey and Minnie party supplies.  A big thanks to MomSelect and Disney Parks for giving me this awesome opportunity.
First was the preparation for the party.  I love cake decorating so I was very excited to try out Duff's Tie Dye Cake Mix.  I love watching Duff Till Dawn, and the Kids Baking Championship and admire the work that Duff does.  This cake is so fun to make for the kids and I.  You make the batter and then break it in to six containers.  Each container gets mixed with included food coloring to make these cool colors.
 Then you pour it little by little to get a tie dye effect.
Here it is after being baked.
I decided to frost it with some fun colors and then add on some Disney characters that we had from previous parties.
Then the kids started arriving.  The boys got right to the snacks and playing Disney Infinity.
Disney Infinity is a big hit with my kids and you can see previous reviews here on the 1.0 and 2.0 versions.
The girls broke in to snacks too but couldn't wait to paint their nails.
 We received these cool Disney nail polishes.

The girls were really silly and ready to start picking their colors.
They got right to work painting away.
They were very proud of their newly painted nails.
Then all the kids decided it was time to play some pin the Mickey Mouse mouth on Mickey.
Of course the boys had fun spinning their friends.
Too funny!
 Even our dog Fred got in to the fun showing his #DisneySide by wearing some Minnie Mouse ears.
 Next was time for cake.  Everyone was very excited as they had seen the cake and couldn't wait to eat it.

Here you can see the tie dye inside.
Then they went right back to games.
 The girls also played Go Fish with Disney cards.
 Lauren liked leading a Disney Trivia game.
 I am dog tired now but what a fun time and great to talk Disney Parks with friends.
Disclosure:  I received a party kit from MomSelect and the Disney Parks to have the #DisneySide @Home Celebration.  No other compensation was received and all opinions are my own.
