College kids have a #DisneySide too

The majority of the items used at this party were provided free of charge with the party kit.  
All of the thoughts and comments are my own.  

Back in early January I had just set off on my runDisney Dopey Challenge journey 2.0 when I learned that I had been picked to throw a Disney Side at Home Celebration.  I was selected to throw a tween/teen party and there were plenty of ideas swirling through my head! I have a tween and a teen of my own at home, but I also have a whole work crew of teen/early 20 somethings at work.  I decided that as a reward for a second academic trimester well completed we would have a Disney Side celebration on the second to last Friday of the academic trimester.  

Oh I forgot to mention it was a villains themed party on Friday the 13th!!!

I am a tweeter at heart so here is a recap of our party told in 140 character bites or less 
with a little extra added for fun!

@LoveDisneyRun: Started my day with a villainous #DisneySide @ Home Celebration 
unboxing party with my college students! 

@LoveDisneyRun: Nothing like setting a groups of college students free
to show their villainous side at a #DisneySide @ Home Celebration.

@LoveDisneyRun: Here are a few ideas for #DisneySide @ Home Celebration!
Disney bingo, quotes and attractions match-up...

@LoveDisneyRun: ...character word search, pin the smile on Mickey, party banners,
food labels, and Disney trivia! #sponsored #DisneySide @ Home Celebration

Time to bake the cake! Tie-dye Mickey ahead! It's not cheesecake, but oh so Pop Century Resort!

@LoveDisneyRun: Puzzle me this... How many times will college students do a

The students put the nail salon station to work! 

The games in our Disney Side Celebration kit were a huge hit! 

It was such an amazing way to close out the second trimester of the academic year 
with our student staff! 

The Twinings Tea was much appreciated during the party 
and especially afterwards during the cleanup! @TwiningsTeaUK

Cake and tea time! 

We all had a blast and got a fun chance to share our love and knowledge of Disney!  It was a great way to wrap up the second academic trimester at school and work. One of the students is even off to his second internship with the Disney Internship College Program for third trimester.  He picked a Walt Disney World Resort restaurant this time around after experiencing a sit down restaurant in World Showcase his first internship. 

Thank you to ALL of the sponsors and Disney Parks staff who helped with the planning, packing, and shipping of the Disney Side at Home Celebration kits!

  1. Everything looks so yummy! Looks like they all had a good time!

  2. Look like your culinary pros did a bang up job with the Mickey Mouse cake! I love that you brought a "slice" of home to these college students; could you please do one at Georgetown University too?! Thanks for tweeting and posting your collegiate Disney Side Erin.
