Family Disney Movie Nights Bring More Magic to the Holidays!

Family Movie Night

Family time is one of the best parts of the holidays (or any time of year, for that matter!) and Disney can make it all the more special. Unfortunately, even if the kids are on break from school, you might not be able to make it to Disney World at that time for a variety of reasons. Don't despair, though — you can still have a wonderful Disney experience with the whole family right in your own home by throwing your own Disney party!

Whether you decide to create this event just for your kids or invite friends and family, there are several options you can choose from to come up with an unforgettable Disney party or movie night that may immediately work its way into your family traditions. Let's look at what it takes to make this possible!


One option is to have a Disney movie night or pajama party, followed by a sleepover if friends are invited. At Your WDW Store, we have tons of super-special Disney merchandise exclusive to the parks, which will bring that extra touch of Disney magic into your home. Of course, the first thing you'll need is Disney pajamas, which we are happy to say come in all sizes from infant to adult! Of course, you don't have to wear Disney PJs to enjoy a Disney movie, but these extra touches are what make a regular party stand out as a special, themed event.

What's on tv?

So, what Disney movies do you want to watch? Since Christmas is coming up and a cozy pajama party is perfect for defeating the winter blues, let's say this is a Disney Christmas movie night. In that case, you could choose The Magic of Christmas, which brings the full experience of Christmas at Walt Disney World right onto your TV. Or you could watch any one of the many beloved Disney Christmas movies like Mickey's Christmas Carol, Winnie-the-Pooh & Christmas Too, Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas, or any of the others. Or you could choose a non-Christmas Disney movie with themes of family and togetherness, like Lilo & Stitch or any of the wonderful Disney park movies. Of course, the whole point of Disney is making your wishes come true, so please feel free to watch any Disney movies you want!

Fun and Games 

If you don't want to spend the whole evening watching movies, how about playing a Disney game? We have rare and super-fun games from Disney World including many different types suitable for different age groups and numbers of players. There are card games, board games, puzzles, and more!

Disney Dance Parties

The only problem with movies and games is that they usually involve a lot of sitting down. When kids are involved, they're going to need to burn off energy, and adults like to get moving too. So, guess what? You can throw a Disney dance party! We have exclusive Disney CDs with a variety of music suitable for many moods and holidays. We even have Disney vinyl records for those of you who prefer analog sound (or just retro things in general)!

Don't forget the Popcorn & Candy!

A party isn't a party without snacks, which also presents another great opportunity for Disney magic: candy and treats from Walt Disney World! If movie night sounds right up your alley, we have the perfect treat recommendation for you: popcorn! At Your WDW Store, you can get all the exclusive Disney popcorn flavors in their collectible buckets that are only available from the Disney parks. What could possibly be more perfect for a Disney movie night?
