Make your family movie night extra special with Disney movie-themed meals to match up with the movie! Here are some inspired Disney dinner recipes and the movie to watch it with!

When my oldest son was about 5, we lived in a small one-bedroom apartment. He had the bedroom, so I slept on the pull-out sofa in the living room, right next to the tiniest galley kitchen you’ve ever seen. On Friday nights, though, we did something special.

We made finger foods, pulled out the couch bed, snuggled up to watch a movie, and popped some Act II Caramel popcorn (do they even make that anymore?!?). Disney’s The Lion King was his absolute favorite, we must have watched  200 times!

He’s now in college, and we still talk about how special those Friday movie nights were (and he still loves The Lion King)!

We still have Family Fun Night on Fridays as part of my meal planning theme nights.

I hope these Disney Movie Night dinner ideas help you create some fun and lasting movie night traditions with your littles!
