Visiting Disneyworld is a dream for most young children. But that is not always possible for every family. But you can bring the magic of the Disneyworld parks into your own home by throwing a Disney Preschool play date. All you need are a few decorations, some snacks, and games. You can create a magical afternoon of Disney play for your preschooler.
We recently planned our own Disney Preschool Play Date and it was a big hit. We received a box of supplies from Disney and we added a few things of our own to make a memorable play date.

This play date was especially exciting for us because we are in the beginning stages of planning a trip to Disney World next year. My daughter has been to Disneyworld once and still talks about it 4 years later. She can still recall so many details about the park and the things we did on the trip. It was truly a magical experience. When you are at Disneyworld it’s like you are transported to another world full of magic and fun. It is an unforgettable trip. My son talks about wanting to go to Disneyworld all of the time. He watches the commercials on TV and hears stories from his sister and he gets caught up in the magic. This playdate was an opportunity for him to be exposed to some of the exciting things that he will see when he visits Disneyworld.

Our Disney Preschool Play Date Games
The first thing we planned for our party were Disney-themed party games. We wanted to capture the essence of the 4 Disney theme parks through our games and activities. So we took some of the main attractions from each park and created a game or activity to go with it.
- Pin the Nose on Mickey: In order to capture the spirit of the Magic Kingdom we planned a game revolving around Mickey Mouse. There was cardboard Mickey head including in our box and we simply cut out black circles for noses. Each child was blindfolded/spun around/ and placed on our toddler Mickey car. They had to drive to the Mickey head and try to get their nose in the right spot. The kids loved the added excitement of driving the small car.
- Disney Junior Paper Bag Puppets: In order to celebrate the Disney Junior characters at Hollywood Studios we made paper bag puppets for our favorite Disney Junior characters. We used white paper bags, glue, glitter, markers, scissors, and pictures of the characters to create our puppets. Each child had a blast choosing their favorite character and decorating their bag.
- Jungle Animal Safari: We made an imaginary trip to Animal Kingdom for our safari. The children went outside and waited in a tent while the adults hid little plastic animals around the yard. Then the kids went on a safari to find the animals.
- Frozen Leap TV game: Most of our preschool play date guests are still huge Frozen fans, so we know we had to include a Frozen game in our party. We can’t wait to visit the Frozen area at Epcot, so we relived the movie by playing our Frozen Leap TV game together.
Our Disney Preschool Play Date Snacks
No party is complete without snacks and we wanted to make sure that our Disney party snacks fit our Disney theme.
- Mouse Munch– We used the Glad Frozen sandwich bags that came in our box to create our own trail mix. The kids filled their bags with pretzels, marshmallows, M&M’s, and cheerios. The kids loved being able to fill their own bag and being able to bring them home in their goody bag.
- Make your own Mickey Cookie– Each child got a sugar cookie for the head and 2 oreos for the ears. Then they used icing and sprinkles to decorate their cookie to look like Mickey Mouse.
- Minnie’s Bows– I put 2 strawberries on a toothpick with a marshmallow in the middle to look like a bow. These snacks were adorable, delicious, and healthy. The bows were the favorite snack at the party and I actually had to go make more!
- Mickey Mouse shaped Veggie Crisps
- Safari animal crackers
Our Disney play date was easy to plan, set up, and clean up. And the kids had a blast with all of the snacks and games. We are definitely planning on doing this again real soon.
