“To infinity and beyond!” Around the holidays it’s just right to have a Toy Story Disney Movie Night. Well really it’s just right to anytime but extra right during the holidays! Freeform originally ABC Family is playing all three of the Toy Story movie this weekend (Saturday & Sunday) and so what a perfect time to have this movie night. I gathered my family and we had a great time watching these movies and enjoying all the Toy Story festivities. We have had a lot of Disney nights now and this was one of my favorites. We have the details to our movie night below, hope you enjoy! These movie tickets are a great fun idea to help get everyone excited about the movie night.
Toy Story Disney Movie Night:
Let’s start with the details to the food we had.
Like every movie night we have a popcorn mix that revolves around the movies theme, because what is a movie night without some popcorn! This toy story popcorn mix included: popcorn, gummy worms a.k.a. “There’s a snake in my boot!”.
We also had pizza bagels to represent “Pizza Planet“. These provided a quick and easy snack option that fit the theme perfectly and of course the kids loved them. You could also simply just order some pizza or even make your own! I loved this idea.
Next we had rocket melons, to represent buzz lightyear! These were made with kabob sticks and marshmallows and strawberries. Simply cut the strawberries into pieces and cut the end of arrow like pieces and pile all food on like the picture.
And for drinks we had Orange Juice to represent Sunny Side.
And finally, as a dessert option we had Oreo alien cookies. These were delicious and a big hit with everyone! Easy to make as well, simply buy some oreos and some light green melting chocolate (which you can get from Michaels), warm up chocolate according to package directions, halfway dip the oreos into chocolate and then quickly and carefully add the candy monster eye sprinkles like the picture and let harden.
All the food was delicious and I felt fit perfectly with the toy story movie. These sherriff badge cookies are also a great dessert idea, as well as these space treat ideas, these alien jell-o cups or cupcakes and this snack.
Now let’s move onto the decorated table that the food is on.
I first laid down a white tablecloth on my table and then connected to that I attach a light blue tablecloth to the wall. Then, using this cloud template, I printed these out in desired sized and then used it as a tracer to cut and trace onto regular printer paper. Fit as many as you can on one page and then pile a couple pieces of paper behind it (I had about 7 pages total) and cut the clouds out with the paper still all together, this way you get all the clouds you need in one shot. Then take some tape or glue and attach the clouds to the blue tablecloth like in the movie in Andy’s room. I used this picture for a reference.
This I felt really added a great touch to my decorated table and really set the movie tone. So highly recommend and is easy to put together.
I then began placing some trays or containers that I knew we would be using for the food on the table in their right places so that I knew where to put all the other table decorations.
I found a smallish box that I had lying around and used that as a decor much like this picture and wrote TOYS on the side and filled the inside with a few of my sons Toy story toy figures.
Having all of this really brings you into the movie and these decorations are so easy to do. If you don’t already have the toys you can follow similar steps in the link above.
And then, I then printed out some more items to help me decorated table. This Toy Story logo, Potato head wanted sign and this pizza planet sign. I put these all around my table to help bring it all together.
We sometimes also have activities or crafts to go with each movie especially for the kids. For this movie we had coloring/activity pages (you can find some by googling toy story coloring/activity pages on google images), and I planned to take the family a huge arcade but unfortunately it snowed and it wasn’t really easy to get the whole gang together and go. But I thought that was a great idea that fit this movie.
I hope you are inspired to have a Toy Story Disney Movie Night of your own with your family! Lots of fun and great memories. These movies are special and great for the kids. Everyone loves them and they really help get in the moods for the holidays and maybe even teach your kiddos to respect and care for their toys more. Or even take them to donate their toys they don’t use anymore for less fortunate children! I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season and it is filled with lots of love and happiness. Stay tuned for our next Disney movie night which will be Frozen!!
Be Happy & Creative!
