Setting up camp in the garden with a good movie

I've mentioned before what big fans we are of Disney. Like so many I'm sure, they are films that have shaped my childhood, even watching them as an adult I can still feel the magic. One of my favourite things to do is introduce my children to a Disney classic, see their eyes grow with wonder, see them sing the songs, gasp in excitement or even to shed a tear (I'm always the one crying the most though!).

When the weather gets colder and we reach Christmas time, snuggling up with something like Frozen just adds to the magic of the season. Cuddling on the sofa and singing along, I've yet to get bored even on the hundredth showing ;)


I'm really thrilled to be working with Disney again in this post to share with you some of the ways we watch Disney. There's the usual of course, the family movie on a Sunday, all of us in our comfy clothes viewing on the TV screen but by downloading films to your smart phone or tablet you can enjoy the Disney magic where ever you are. You can download them from various platforms such as iTunes, Amazon Video, Google Play and Sky Store.

I thought it would be fun to set up a camp in the garden whilst Wilf was at school for him to return to. He's been so tired since starting back that we tend to have dinner early and then let him chill out for the rest of the evening. When he found the blankets and cushions all set up with the fairy lights he was so surprised! Even more so to find we had downloaded one of his favourites (Alice in Wonderland) for him to watch al fresco as the sun set.

The kids were so thrilled with this set up and it was something super easy to set up but make just that bit more special. I even thinking of doing some special nights like a jungle themed set up to watch the Jungle Book or something. Any ideas of what we could do?


The other place that downloading and watch Disney (and probably our most used) is when we're travelling. I'm always SO thankful for Peter Pan on a flight or Finding Dory on a long train journey. Even if he's watched the films over and over I find my kids really never do get bored of the magic of Disney, there is just something so special about them isn't there?

What do you think? Would you download Disney films to watch out and about when traveling or even just to 'camp' in the garden with? I'd love to know if your kiddos love them as much as me!

Oh wow how cool is this, I am a Disney kid as well and hope one day to introduce the classics to my future kids. So jealous of this outdoor cinema of sort

I love dens Abe especially tents like these. I always think kids always remember when we do special little things for them. Thank you for sharing x x

That teepee is amazing! I love watching my kids reactions too. I spent most of their first time watching the Lion King watching their reactions!

We are Disney fanatics in this house so this has really appealed to us! We regularly make camps and dens here too it's amazing how much fun the kids can have in them isn't it?!
