Disney Up Party Ideas | FREE Printable Craft
Disney lovers, this is the party for you! I’m so excited to reveal our Disney Up Party Ideas – from decor to food to drinks to free printable crafts and more! Perfect for a Disney themed party or playdate, I am just in LOVE with all of the fun we had with our kids at this Disney party. So grab your sense of adventure and come see all of the adorableness!
Carl and Ellie would approve.
Disney Up Party Décor Ideas
EKKK! Can you tell that we’re a little excited for our party! I love the movie Disney Up; it’s one of our family favorites. So it was NO problem at all to host a party just for our movie. Disney Up Party Décor was hard to come by – I couldn’t find party supplies in a store. That’s ok. We were feeling “up” to the challenge.
Balloons. A must-have for sure. I couldn’t resist the idea of having a huge bunch of balloons for this Disney Up Party. We saved a little bit of money on balloons by buying latex balloons in bulk and having them blown up at our local grocery store. And they made the perfect prop for pictures – even Carl & Ellie stopped by our party dressed in their Pixar Up Disneybounding best.
Carl & Ellie’s Our Adventure Book was also a must-have for our party. This heavyweight scrapbook was a great Amazon find, perfect for a Disney themed wedding or gift idea too! Be sure to use items around the home too! We used some binoculars, fresh flowers, and a few “vintage” looking pieces like this leather box.
I just love adding to my kids’ Golden Books collection. This Disney Up Golden Book was such a bargain and looked adorable displayed on a colorful stand for our party. BONUS: it was a great book to add to our home library afterwards.
Need a fun and easy Disney Up banner? We took some vintage travel postcards and some postcards that our kids received from family members on their journeys and strung them up on some bakery string with clothespins. A super cute way to display your travels and urge that sense of ultimate Carl and Russell adventure!
Party hats, yes please! Disney provided these metallic blue party hats, which are pretty fun on their own…but I needed a little bit more. So I grabbed these balloon cupcake toppers and inserted into the tops of each hat. EASY! The kids loved wearing them too for a festive touch to our party.
Disney Up Food Ideas
When running with an adorable Disney themed party, the themed party food must be spot-on! I couldn’t help but be overloaded with delicious Disney Up themed food. And I loved all of these cute ideas!
Adventure Is Out There Popcorn
This has to be one of my favorite Disney party food ideas! The Adventure Is Out There Popcorn was such a hit with the kids, especially when we turned the movie on! I used this fun map printed wrapping paper, scissors and tape to create popcorn cones for the kids to hold. So fun!
Up, up, up! These balloon cupcakes kept lifting up and disappearing 🙂 Sprinkled with colored confetti sprinkles, I love the subtle nod to the Disney Up movie. And who can resist cupcakes at a party, seriously?
Tennis Ball Cheeseball
I rolled a store-bought cheeseball in some crushed potato chips for this tennis ball inspired cheeseball. Top with a few slices of white cheese slices for a fun take on Carl’s cane tennis balls!
Russell’s S’mores Bar
Wilderness Explorers love s’mores, didn’t you know?! And that meant we needed to have all of the s’mores essentials at our Disney Up Party, including lots of chocolate to lure Kevin & her babies to our party.
Here, Snipe-y Snipe!
Campfire Fruit Skewers
Singing around the campfire wouldn’t be the same without these campfire inspired fruit skewers! Featuring the colors of fire, these were a huge hit with our kids!
Blue Skies Chips
Blue skies are coming our way! These Blue Corn Tortilla Chips had us thinking about clear skies, perfect for balloon travels!
Disney Up Drink Ideas
All of that world traveling would definitely make me thirsty! Quench your party guests’ thirst with these themed Disney Up Drink Ideas.
Vintage Soda Pop
Pop, y’all! Soda pop in glass bottles were definitely needed for our party. I mean, we had to earn our Ellie Grape Soda badges, right? And while I couldn’t find any grape soda at the store (highly disappointing), I did find lots of fun colored soda at our grocery store.
I placed a few bottles in this wooden garden caddy for a vintage look. And don’t forget the “Carl’s Soda” label.
Paradise Falls Punch
This had to be one of my favorite ideas. Paradise Falls Punch! Make this easy punch with a little blue Hawaiian punch. Grab a mason jar and fill with a few coins. Be sure to tie your “Paradise Falls Punch” label around it.
Disney Up Kids Activities | FREE Printable Up House Craft
Disney Up Movie
It’s not a party without the fun kids activities! Disney Pixar Up movie was on repeat during the party (can’t get enough of Carl, Russell, Doug & Kevin!) so everyone had a chance to eat their popcorn and watch our Disney theme in action!
FREE Disney Up Kids Craft with FREE Printable
The Disney Up Party Ideas don’t stop there. This crafty mom must always have a craft on-hand for our kids (and adults, I don’t judge).
So we had our painting skills ready with FREE Disney Up Printable House featuring Carl’s colorful house so we could finger paint our own balloons!
Oh my goodness the kids had so much fun painting their own bunches of balloons, and the results were perfect for framing! I love a great frame-worthy craft, especially when it features my kids cute little digits!
Whew! We were “blown away” by all of the adventure we had at our Disney Up Party. Hopefully you grabbed some of your own fun Disney Up Party Ideas. Be sure to pin and share with your Disney loving families so you can start planning your next Disney themed party or play date!
