I hope you saw us do our Disney Playdate unboxing last month on our Facebook page. We were invited by Disney to host a fun preschool play date. Caroline was quite excited to host some of her friends over for a fun playdate. We were both pretty excited. May is a very busy month for our family. Both kiddos celebrate a birthday plus we have a ton of soccer, swimming, and gymnastics every week. Trying to find an open weekend to host a party was very difficult. That is when I realized that hosting a party doesn’t have to be an elaborate affair. It is possible to host a small, simple party in the middle of the week. So here are som fun ideas for a simple Mickey Mouse party.
Fun Ideas for a Simple Mickey Mouse Party
A simple party needs some simple decorations. For our party, we had themed tablecloth and table settings. I used the cupcake toppers for our mini-chocolate chip muffins. This party was in the middle of the week before dinner so I didn’t want the kids to get too full on sweets. I had some simple snacks that they enjoyed.
Check out these adorable decorations:

Caroline decided that our party hats needed a little embellishment so she took some of the Mickey stickers that we had and put them on the party hats. It was a fun activity that all the kids ended up doing.
Jonah even joined us for the fun!
The little party was a huge sucess. Evryone had fun and it was the perfect amount of time for a weekday after-preschool party!
Hosting a preschool playdate doesn’t have to take you hours of planning. I found some fun ideas for you to inspire your next little get-together.
Mickey Mouse Food Ideas
What is a party without the food? The food is what can turn your simple party into a complicated one, so be sure to plan accordingly. I have done everything from elaborate cookies and cakes to simple Oreo Mickey cookies that I whipped up in a few minutes. You could also just stick mini Oreos on the sides of a donut and have a hidden Mickey. The possibilities are endless. Here are a few suggestions.
We made these Mickey Oreo Cookies for Jonah’s 2nd birthday! They are so simple yet have a big impact. You can whip them up in no time.
For Caroline’s 2nd birthday we made Minnie Mouse Oreos!
No party is complete without some fun activities. Here are a few of the ones that I think would make a fun activity center at a preschooler’s party.
I used my friend’s fantastic Minnie Mouse Ears Tutorial to make these fun headbands for the kids.
Planning a fun little Mickey Mouse Party doesn’t have to take a ton of time. A little bit of decor, food, and activities are all you need for a successful play date. Changing the theme to your favorite Disney character is simple, just think about the theme and order a few items from Amazon or your local party store and you are all set.
