Relive your dreams from the couch
September 10, 2009
Remember the day you realized you couldn't fly or carry on a conversation with woodland creatures? If adult life is feeling a little too heavy, a Disney viewing party may be just what you need to lighten up.
Walt Disney studios is releasing your childhood favorites on Blu-ray Hi-Def in its new Diamond collection. Polish off your mature movie player, invite a few friends over and let the regression begin.
To honor the package's name, stock up on your favorite costume jewelry for the ladies and dream of life as your favorite bejeweled monarch. Decorate your living room like the Beast's library or Prince Charming's ballroom with antique sconces or colorful lighting. Serve your guests goblets filled with punch fit for a princess or give them a taste of the jungle with gummy worms or other candied critters.
Get the kids involved by holding a costume contest, and allow the most creative character to choose what film the group will view next.
While watching your favorite villains and scallywags, see who can come up with the most obscure quote or hidden background scene. Though you may want to spend the rest of the night wishing on a star that you didn't have to go to work the next day, do make sure no one leaves any shoes behind.
