Magical Monday #23: Virtual DISNEY Surprise Birthday Party! (Disney Party Inspiration Galore!!)

To all who come to this happy virtual surprise party, welcome!  

This Magical Monday is extra special as today is my cousin's Birthday!  I hope you'll stick around, enjoy the party, and be inspired for any future Disney bashes that you may throw too!  I found oodles of DIY Disney party decor, magically themed eats, and some free printables that I can't wait to share too!  Everything is just about set. The birthday girl should be arriving very soon, so come on in!

First things first, this is a Disney party, so mouse ears are a MUST

The Minnie hats are actually inexpensive party hats covered in fabric, fancy that!

I also found super simple instructions for the Mickey hats too. Aren't they adorable?

Would you like to take a quick peek around at the party decor before the guest of honor arrives?

*Links to original sources & tutorials below each image*

How sweet are these place settings?  I can hardly wait for the party to start!

OH!  It looks like the guest of honor has arrived!  Everyone, find a good hiding spot!


I know you weren't expecting this Surprise Virtual Birthday Party when you stopped by today. Yet, every birthday girl should have special accessories for her own party, so I have a few wearable gifts for you!

A Disney Birthday Button, of course! ;)

Minnie Mouse Bow Watch for Women (aka: Birthday Bling)

Alright, if everyone would like to follow me (to the second half of this post ;)),
I think we'll go ahead and enjoy our party sips, eats & sweets!

Check out these cute Mickey Mouse Mason Jars! 

 What shall I pour in yours?

Jungle Juice is my personal favorite...

We also have Frunch, as served at Boma 
in Animal Kingdom Lodge Resort...

Be sure to grab a sweet lit'l juice box for the kiddos
 (& young at heart) too! 

Now, if I can have everyone's attention,  I'm delighted to introduce some very special party guests, the Dapper Dans!  They don't normally perform at birthday parties, but when they found out it was one of the biggest Disney fans ever, EMILY's special day, they were honored to join us!

Make a wish, Em!

Ok, friends, help yourself to some dessert!  
Aren't these treats are as Sweet as the Birthday Girl? :)

Please find a comfortable spot to enjoy your goodies ...& this Disney birthday cartoon!

Hope you enjoyed that classic!  I thought it was appropriate for a Disney surprise party! :)

Before we wrap up this magical celebration, let's not forget to share some special birthday wishes with our guest of honor!  If you don't mind, I'll go first. :)  I couldn't find just the right card for this special occasion, so I decided to write a short 'n' sweet birthday letter instead ... 


I hope you don't mind me "drawing" attention to you today,

but I couldn't resist taking this opportunity to

I hope this fresh new year of your life overflows with  (Disney) adventure!
