Mini pilots everywhere having been soaring around the world from the comfort of their living rooms since Disney Planes was released on DVD last week. With Whistler’s birthday coming up, I’ve been thinking of fun party themes and this is definitely a contender! Inspired by the Around the World Party Kit we received from Disney Home Entertainment:

  • A World Map with:
  • Push Pins and Colored String to mark off your current and future destinations!
  • Planes-inspired Flight Cap
  • Aviator Sunglasses
  • 2 Balsa Wood Glider Planes
  • Planes Award Ribbon
  • Planes Blu-ray Combo Pack
  • 4 Sheets of Temporary Tattoos
  • 4 Sheets of Stickers

I’ve put together this list of 12 Disney Planes Party Ideas to Get Your Party Soaring to New Heights and round out what we received above.
