Mickey himself also gave a special appearance. The kids loved wearing the character masks and having their picture taken.
We had a wonderful table spread of goodies and good sweet treats. Mickey, Tigger, and Sally Carrera from Cars were our table mascots. I had a hard time keeping people away from the table before the party.
Nevermind my 19 month old who is enjoying being outdoors (green jacket and eating cookies). To answer the questions, the adults could not answer them. They had to whisper the answer to their partner (child) and their partner could answer. The first youth who talked and got it correctly got the points. No one knew before hand why they were choosing a child as their partner so no one had any strategy to this game. It was just the luck of the draw or the luck of you choosing the right partner. As you can see from the pictures, this spin on the game made it more exciting and entertaining. It made way for a lot of laughs. We were not in Disneyland that day but we had a lot of laughs and the Disney came out in us. You can see the smiles on the faces.
We also used the Disney marathon cheer cards to have a little fitness time in a version of Simon Says. Instead of Simon, it was Mickey. If Mickey cheer card said a particular exercise you did it. If there was a command on the card and Mickey did not say it, you don't do it. Because we didn't want the afternoon chilly weather to have the little ones with runny noses and coughs, we took the party inside.
I want to say a very special THANKYOU to all my family members who played a part in making this celebration fun. To my cousin Tiffany for the venue, aunts for helping with kids and decorations, and to my photography and decorating cousins; I really appreciate every one of you. Hope to do this again soon! We had a great time!
