Disney Movie Nights – they are just traditional. They usually involve pj’s, favorite snacks, blankets & stuffed friends. But, in changing times, there is a new concept of movie night…themed movie nights. I love this concept for so many reasons. It is more than just watching a movie. You can include themed activities, food, & decorations. Our whole family becomes involved. From planning, to decorating, to clean-up, it is a true example of teamwork & a great bonding experience.
It’s the only animated film to make over a billion dollars at the box office. It’s everywhere you look this Holiday Season…Frozen. We absolutely have to include it in our Family Adventure Movie Night. I know your kids watch it all the time already, but let’s pull out all of the stops to make this viewing extra special!!
- Snowflakes – Hang snowflakes you make during your activities. For an extra special effect hang them at varying heights using fishing like in the window. They can remain there as part of your Holiday Décor until the season is over.
- Tablescape – You really need to make this one special! White is the color of choice, white table cloth, plates, and napkins. Silverware adds to the Frozen and looks like ice icicles on your white table. Grab a bag of faux snowflakes from the store and scatter it around the center of the table to look like Elsa created one of her indoor snowfalls. Use the Snowmen you created during the family activities as your centerpiece.
- Hang white Christmas ornaments from the ceiling around the room to mimic snow balls. You can also include white balloons or paper lanterns (add a little glitter to make them sparkle) to look like giant snowballs!
- As always you need to have your Anna, Elsa, Olaf and Sven toys present and scatter round the room to add some Frozen ambience.
- Snowflakes – Each snowflake is unique, just like each member of the family! Have everyone cut a snowflake from paper (you can find lots of patterns online) then decorate them with glitter, paint, markers, rhinestones, ect. Tie fishing line to each one and hang them in front of the window for decoration throughout the Holiday Season!
- Do You Wanna Build A Snowman? – Buy varying sizes of Styrofoam balls at a local craft store, glue three together to make a snowman blank for each member of the family, be sure to flatten the bottom slightly so that they will be able to stand up. Gather craft supplies (i.e. fine glitter, small buttons, rhinestones, fabric for scarves, orange pipe cleaners, ect.) and have the kids go outside and gather small twigs to use for arms. Use your family of completed snowmen as your table centerpiece.
- Frozen Lyrics Contest – See how well each member of the family really knows the lyrics of the songs from Frozen. Choose one person to be the host and read a line from a Frozen Song, each contestant sings the next line, if they are correct they move on to the next round. Continue with the next contestant until there is only one true Frozen Music Fan left.
- Potato Soup – A great way to warm up from the inside, and I am going with a white theme for dinner. Have add ins like sour cream, cheese, bacon bit so that each family member can have their soup just the way they like it!
- Grilled Cheese – Make grilled cheese sandwiches using all white cheeses, mozzarella, provolone, pepper jack, white cheddar, even goat cheese for the adventurous!
- Cauliflower with Ranch – Continuing with the white food theme serve raw cauliflower with ranch or steamed cauliflower with white cheddar cheese sauce.
- Snowflake Cookies – Make snowflake sugar cookies (a bonus activity), add sugar to the top for ice crystals or add white icing with white and silver sprinkles.

If you’ve seen me on the web you already know there’s nothing I love more than planning Disney parties, but I love everything Disney from the history to the theme parks to the movies. I also have a true passion for planning Disney vacations as a travel professional for WDW Guru Travel. I can sometimes be sarcastic, but always helpful, and a mostly entertaining Disney Fanatic!! A true Alabama girl, born and raised, I live with my husband, Mike, and son, Dakota on a 150 acre farm in Troy that’s been in my husband’s family since before the Civil War. My daughter, Ashley, lives in Clarksville, TN with her husband, Eric, and their kids Lexi & Tripp. If you we ever get to meet in person, you will find a genuine Southern accent, the overuse of affectionate terms like “Honey”, “Sugar”, and “Darlin” and an uncontrollable need to dote over everybody.
