Our surprise #DisneySide birthday party!


I received free products in order to host a Disney Side @ Home Celebration.  The opinions expressed here are my own.


For months we've been planning our very first family trip to Orlando.  The only thing is, we've had to keep it a secret from our son.  We wanted to wait until his 9th birthday to spill the beans.  So when I was chosen to host a Disney Side @ Home Celebration I was stoked because I knew exactly what we would do. 


We invited our closest friends and family to a local restaurant, the boys favorite, Buffalo Wild Wings.  Everyone got there about 10 minutes before my husband and son walked in.  Our son believed it was just the three of us coming to dinner and he was extremely surprised!  We had 24 people come out to celebrate our boy and we are so blessed to have so much love around him!  Every guest went home with a goody bag filled with coupons from a few of Disney's sponsors, Photo paper, Disney luggage tags, Mickey & Minnie themed treats and a family tree to complete at home.  We played some Disney trivia, and were surprised at how much our family and friends knew!


So thankful that my kit included a Mickey cake pan.  Our friend, and fellow blogger, Kerry not only came to celebrate with us she also made our amazing Mickey cake.  It tasted just as good as it looked!! 


To end the evening, we had our boy open our gift for him.  I included a poem on the envelope of the card to kind of explain the contents of the box.  Excuse the horrible hand writing, I wrote it on the fly minutes before guests started to arrive.


The box included three Disney themed t-shirts and a LEGO luggage tag.  At the end of the box he picked up the envelope and read it again and then it clicked and he said, "Am I going to Disney?" we shook our heads yes and he said, "REALLY?  YAY!!!"  This look alone was worth all the wait and the planning! 


The party couldn't have went better, and we are so thankful we were able to incorporate so much of our Disney Side in our surprise party for our boy!  So, Walt Disney World, The Downing's are coming for you this May!  We can't wait!
