Oh the weather outside is frightful…..which is why we love to stay in this time of year, watch movies, bake cookies and enjoy all things festive and cozy. If you’re looking for permission to stay in and do the same, well here ya go! We loved themed movie nights, so why not add a little Disney magic to your Christmas lineup?! Here are some of our favorite things for a Disney Christmas movie night!
Our Favorite Disney Christmas Movies
While there are so many to choose from, we definitely have a few favorites that we keep watching over and over again. We’ve mentioned it here before and if you follow us on Instagram, we’ve mentioned it there too, but Mickey’s Christmas Carol will always have a special place in our hearts. It’s a throwback to our childhood and it will make our must watch list every year, and will usually be watched on repeat.
We are also big fans of the new Mickey shorts lately and find Duck the Halls from the Mickey Mouse- Merry & Scary DVD to be just the dose of Disney comedy that we need during the holidays when things start to get a bit crazy and hectic. It’s short, funny and its touch of madness makes us feel like we’re actually not doing too bad during the holiday season.
The Santa Clause series, all 3 of them, is actually one we keep in our Amazon Prime library and love that the trilogy is perfect for binge watching should you find yourself stuck inside for an entire day.
Another beloved version of the Christmas Carol, we are huge fans of The Muppet Christmas Carol. We love any excuse to incorporate the Muppets into our day and what better way than to mix in the beauty and lesson of the Christmas Carol?
There are so many more Disney movies to add to your holiday movie list, but these are just a few we love for a Disney Christmas movie night!
Treats for a Disney Christmas Movie Night
You can never go wrong with popcorn when it comes to movie night, so we love reusing our Popcorn Buckets from the Parks to add a bit of magic to popcorn at home! We’ve been lucky enough to get a few over the years so we always try to use them at home too.
Don’t have a Parks popcorn bucket? No worries, we made a super simple one for Mickey’s 90th birthday party using just a mickey hole punch and glitter cardstock.
Since it is in fact the holiday season, we can’t pass us the opportunity to add in some holiday cookies. We love baking and these Mickey gingerbread cookies are the perfect little Disney touch to add to movie night. Just grab your favorite gingerbread or sugar cookie recipe and a Mickey cookie cutter and voila! Instant Christmas cookie magic.
We also love the simplicity of these Mickey Oreo treats and you can make them as easy or as elaborate as you choose!
Cozy Holiday Drinks for a Disney Christmas Movie Night
No movie night would be complete without a fun, cozy drink to sip in while taking in the magic of the holiday. Grab a cute mug and have a cup of cheer!
What is more cozy than hot cocoa on a cold night?! We love this recipe straight from Disney Family and recently made our own version. Not only was it completely adorable, but it was so delicious, we can’t wait to make it again! For more hot cocoa ideas, be sure to check out our hot cocoa bar post for fun ways to make your cocoa a little more magical.
Not much of a cocoa fan? We’ve also shared a recipe for our Cinderella inspired Pumpkin Chai that we believe is pure magic! One of our go to’s for fall and all winter long, this chai is sure to warm you up and smells just like the holidays.
And finally, if you need a bit of a caffeine boost to help you through this season, we also love the cinnamon latte inspired by Tiana’s Place onboard the Disney Wonder. Complete with a little cinnamon Mickey, this latte is sure to boost your holiday spirits and your energy levels.
So there you have it, a fun, easy and cheap way to do a Disney Christmas Movie night!
How do you do movie nights at your house?! We’d love to hear your ideas!
