Help with Disney Party

Hello everyone,

I am going to have a Disney Party soon in Las Vegas. I'm hoping to get some of my Disney fanatic friends to join me in starting a chapter in Las Vegas. I really want my party to be fun and get everyone excited about starting a chapter here.

Do you have any party ideas you can share with me?

Any suggestions about what I can tell friends that would make them really want to start a chapter here?

What are some past events or activities that you really enjoyed that I could share with them?

How did it go when you started a chapter or joined a new chapter?

Thanks guys for any input! I really want this to be a success and Vegas needs it!!!

Starting a new chapter

Again from the Ohio Plane Crazy Chapter...I was a Castmember of the Disney Store and along with Gary and Anita started our chapter. Some of the ways to find interested Disney fans...first contact your local Disney Store and make them aware that you are starting a local chapter and thought some of their castmembers and/or guests may find it of interest.
Search Facebook and myspace for fans. If you have a local cable station, see about getting them to put a public service announcement on, making sure you tell them it is a non-profit organization.

Some ideas...until you get to know people, you can hold meetings in various places: meet at a restaurant, local church meeting room, meet at a local theater then catch a Disney Movie afterwards. With help from TDS by letting the guests know, pin trade at the food court, in the mall where The Disney Store is located. Their are 5 pinpals on Dizpins, that are in Las Vegas.

Watch Disney videos, have themed meetings by having members dress up as their favorite character (Halloween meeting) or from one of their favorite lands at the parks, triva or play other Disney Games, raffles or auctions to raise money for your chapter. Have members share their favorite Disney collectible. Bring a food item from one of Disney's cookbooks. Attend the National Convention.

Our chapter started off small, grew to about 35 members then back down to 12-15 hard core members. Sometimes the direction of the chapter changes and a few members will decide it isn't what they wanted. So make sure you discuss with your members, what do they really want out of the chapter, when you start one.

Good luck and I hope you enjoy the organization as much as I Have.

chapter party ideas

Hi Christine!

My name is Anita and I am the president of the Plane Crazy Chapter of Ohio. We started our chapter from scratch so I know what you are going through. One of the most successful ideas we have had is to theme each meeting around a Disney Movie. For instance in April we have had 'The Festival of Fools" from Hunchback. We have everyone make Mardi Gras masks and hand out beads and if anyone says the word Disney they have to hand over the beads. Then we show the movie and watch it together. One meeting everyone had to bring a mickey shaped food. That was fun. And we grilled out mickey shaped hamburgers. I hope this helps and more chapters jump in with more ideas!

Good Luck! Hope to hear a lot from you!

Anita
