Decisions, decisions. We have finalized our halloween costume theme for this year but I’m still scrambling to get all of the costumes together. 

We have certainly had some fun costumes as a family so this decision process should be fun. With so many great Disney movies coming out and the launch of Disney Plus in 27 days (but who’s counting), I’m not telling what our theme is yet but I’ll give you a hint… Disney costumes for the family are a strong possibility. 

Just about anything Disney is something we can all agree on (well all but maybe one of us). Let’s see which themes make it to the top of our list. But there are so many good options that we can pull off either DIY style or delivered straight to our door. These are great for Halloween, Disney costume parties, and some could even work on your next Disney vacation. 

Disney Costumes For The Family

Of course we went for The Incredibles because hello family of 5. That was easy enough to pull off with a newborn dressed as Jack Jack.

Toy Story 

I’m pretty sure we would make a great Woody, Bo Peep, Buzz Light Year, Jessie, Rex and even Snoop as Slinky Dog from Toy Story. Soldiers, Hamm and more.  I wonder if Big T wants to be Andy? 

The girls and I dressed up at Toy Story Land and my dress from Hot Topic was perfect for a warm day at the parks. 

Alice In Wonderland 

Taking it back to a classic might be fun. Alice In Wonderland has lots of options for us as a family. Picture Lee Lee as the Cheshire Cat, Queen of Hearts, Mad Hatter, The White Rabbit, The Ace Card. So many choices. Actually, now I’m wishing we had gone for this this year. 

Disney’s Descendants 

Disney’s Descendants are fun because there are more than enough characters to choose from. Lil’ J is fast approaching “the big kids years” so this theme would be a way to support that tween Disney fandom life. 


DIY Family Zootopia Costume

I shared the Zootopia theme in our Best Family Costumes list a few weeks ago. But since it’s one of our favorite Disney movies, it’s definitely worth sharing again. It was such an easy and fun theme to put together. We will definitely revisit this one if we ever go to a costume party. I’ll have to decide which Zootopia character Lili will be. 

Nightmare Before Christmas 

I feel like the Nightmare Before Christmas is the perfect costume theme for Halloween going into Christmas. I mean Christmas decorations are already just a few aisles over from where the Halloween costumes are so why not combine the two? 

Mickey, Minnie and Friends 

Disney family costumes

Minnie is a forever favorite of mine and Lil’ J. I think rocking some of the classic Disney characters will be fun. My husband and Big T can both be Mickey, or one could go as Donald, while the girls and I can all go as Minnie or Daisy. Or we can each be one of the many Mickey and Friends characters. 


Frozen mania is in full swing and we are definitely excited for Frozen 2. Going as the cast of Frozen means we will already be costume ready for when the movie comes out on November 22. 

I could go on and on about Disney costumes for the whole family but then we will never make a decision. Do you have a favorite Disney costumes themes or one you think our family can pull off that’s not on this list? Let me know. 

Sisters hug eachother at bus stop

That viral video of a baby waiting for her big sister at the bus stop, and the two sisters running to each other after school? That’s not where this love story begins my friends. Nor does it start at the beginning of the school year when Lee Lee started waiting for her siblings to get… read the rest.

People often ask me how I help my children celebrate who they are. One of the main ways we do this is a family starts with one of the words in the name of our blog. Cherish. We teach our children to cherish who they are, their unique characteristics, personalities and our own personal family… read the rest.

Growing up I spent every other week at the hair salon for hours at a time. I sat as the stylist combed through my tender headed curls, washed and brushed it all out, blew it straight then seared it straight with a hot comb.  It wasn’t until college that I began to learn how to… read the rest.

DIY Family Zootopia Costume

It’s officially fall which means all things pumpkin, Halloween and more. As soon as the season changes (even though it’s still 90 degrees), I get into full fall fun planning mode. I start with Halloween because matching costumes are my jam. It never fails that I want to buy a couple family Halloween costume sets… read the rest.

I was a new mom just getting my footing and connecting with other young moms. I met a woman who was also a writer with a new baby about my daughter’s age. Her vibrant personality instantly drew me in. I felt so lucky that she quickly became one of my closest friends. We had regular… read the rest.

With the launch of Disney+ less than two months away, there’s a lot of excitement about what movies will be available at launch. After cross-referencing some lists from what’s available on the Disney+ free-trial in the Netherlands (thanks to @StitchKingdom), it seems that every Disney Animated movie and sequel should be available. Whether all of… read the rest.

Another year, another grade. I vividly remember 4th grade, so it’s surreal to have a fourth grader of my own. And my sweet boy is in first grade now and growing taller and more inquisitive each day. At the start of each year, we like to sit down and have a family meeting to talk… read the rest.
