Play a game of freeze dance with the kids using Disney music! Start a song and then have the kids dance around the room. When you press pause, have them all stop dancing. The kids that are dancing after the music turns off are out. Glance around the room for about 30 seconds to see if anyone moves and then start the music again. Repeat the process until one child is left.

When you’re ready for the party to wind down a bit, throw on the movie Mickey, Donald, Goofy: The Three Musketeers. This fun family film will keep guests occupied so you can have a chance to clean up if necessary.
