Disney vacations need to be planned way in advance. We planned our last Disney vacation over a year in advance. It seemed soooo¬†far away…

To keep the “Disney magic” alive I planned what I call Disney dinners. Every month leading up to our vacation I picked a Disney movie and planned a dinner based on it. We eat dinner and watch the movie together. This really helped the months go by leading up to the trip.

This Disney dinner I chose Lilo and Stitch. Here is our menu:

To make the menu I just searched for some Lilo and Stitch clip art. I typed up the menu in Adobe Photoshop and added the clip art.

We had fruit for an appetizer. They were supposed to be fruit kabobs but time got away from me that day and it just didn’t happen.

For our main course, we had Stitch’s chicken teriyaki. I used store bought teriyaki sauce and marinated the chicken for 30 minutes and then grilled it up on my indoor grill pan.

We had some yummy Jamba Juice to drink which was just guava juice and pineapple juice mixed in equal portions.

This kid! HaHa.

After dinner, we watched the movie and had snacks.

This does not have to be crazy expensive! I bought all the props and decorations at my local dollar store.

The kids loved dressing in their luau gear!

Whether you are going on a Disney vacation or not, you can have a Disney dinner. It’s so much fun! Who doesn’t love Disney movies, right? Happy Disney Dinner!!
