Every child usually requests at least one Mickey Mouse birthday. So we’re sharing our Mega Mickey Mouse Birthday Party Plan for a real HOTDOG time!
I don’t pretend to be a crafty woman. I wish I was. However, I’m one heck of pinner and can find pretty much anything on Pinterest. Especially party ideas.
So as we approached two monumental birthdays for my kiddos, with my daughter turning 2 in August and my son turning 5 in June, planning began by February 1. However, when my son was granted his wish to go to Disney World from A Wish With Wings, everything became Mickey Mouse. I mean everything. So of course, so did the birthday party.
Thankfully, with just a little help from some lovely bloggers on Pinterest & Etsy, some Amazon purchases, a local party rentals and 1 lovely neighbor who happened to have some leftover Mickey Mouse decor, we had a party to make Walt Disney proud – or at least make my little ones excited!
Mickey Mouse Birthday Party Plan
Mickey Mouse Birthday Party Invites
Oh Etsy, how do I love thee, let me count the ways…Thanks to MyCelebrationShoppe, I had these adorable invites made!
Then using the following graphic and downloading a similar Disney font I downloaded online, I addressed the invitations.
Best of call, since we had the invited printed before our trip to Disney, Jackson was able to personally give his invitation to Mickey Mouse at Disney World during his wish trip. It was such a precious opportunity!
Mickey Mouse Birthday Party Look
Like any good mama going to Disney, I had personalized clothes made for my kids. We then repurposed them for their birthday outfits! Adorable and affordable from ThePolkaDotLollipop (she was amazing, quick and so easy to work with!)
Mickey Mouse Birthday Party Decor
As I mentioned I had a neighbor who had balloons, a Mickey cardboard standout, and some banners to start with, so I was already in good business.
But mama never stops at that.
I then ordered the essentials – plates, napkins, tablecloths, including this little polka dot one, and even a photo backdrop to stick up on the fence to welcome families when they arrived at the party.
Borrowing an idea from the Mickey Mouse Playhouse attraction at Disney’s Magic Kingdom, we added a balloon drop to pull after signing “Happy Birthday.” I mean, who doesn’t love balloons? And it’s was less than $12.
So I wasn’t selling out completely, Jackson and I spent an afternoon making a Mickey centerpiece for the refreshment table from a post I had found from The Simple Life using styrofoam, a terra cotta pot, a dowel rod and spray paint.
Mickey Mouse Birthday Party Food
My favorite part of the party is always the food! We we made it easy serving hotdogs of course (Hot dog, hot dog, hot diggity dog!) and chips along with lots of snacks!
Since we always do AM birthday parties (key to a successful party when you have littles), we needed a little something healthy, my grandparents sent over this adorable Edible Arrangements (perfect!)
At this age cupcakes are a mandatory since cake + 2 year-olds just makes a big, sticky mess on me. Just purchasing cupcakes from our neighborhood market, we put cute Mickey Mouse toppers and then this adorable cupcake stand from Wilson.
I tried to make our drinks easy, but it actually took a little tracking down. Langers actually let me know where to find these Mickey Mouse apple juice pouches, so I bought around five cases just to make sure I didn’t run out!
But I had to do one more thing when I came across some photos of some cute cake pops and cupcakes featuring Oreo cookies for Mickey Mouse ears. While I found several different versions of how to do them Mickey Mouse Oreo Cookies on a Stick, I ended up with my own shortcut version. But, let’s face it, if I can do it, anyone can!
Mickey Mouse Birthday Party Games and Fun
On to the fun! Since bounce houses are the way to go with kiddos at this age, we were able to find a everything Mickey Mouse 5-in-1 combo playhouse for a great price from a local bounce house company in Fort Worth. They did everything from set up to breakdown. We kept it dry while the party was happening, but afterwards I let the kids go crazy when we hooked up the hose to slide for a little water action!
