My Disney Countdown

Counting down to Disney is one of my FAVORITE things to do!  Last year I found a cute countdown chain where it looks like Mickey’s head, pants and shoes.  It was cute and relatively easy to make, however; not reusable.

So when I was planning on a Disney Craft Day, I stumbled across this AWESOME disney countdown on the Disney Parks Blog, and decided to customize it for our own trip.

I printed two sets of each number so that I would be able to countdown from the double digits (and reuse it for future trips!!)

After cutting out each of the numbers, I mounted them on coordinating colored construction paper, and added some more flair (and some hidden mickeys!)

This is a fun craft that you could easily do with your kids in preparation for your disney trip!

To display it, I repurposed a piece of cork board that had broken away from it’s frame.  Since it wasn’t framed, I outlined the edges of the board with Disney Princess duct tape.  I mounted it to the wall near our Disney photos with 3M wall mounts.  I put some finishing touches on the board by adding a few photos from past trips, as well as some pins that we’ve collected!  I also added a gallon size freezer bag to the bottom to store unused numbers!

Here is the finished product-

    We love the countdown! It’s so fun for the kids! Can you please tell us which characters are associated with each number? We are having some debate over a few😄

    Hi there! I am a volunteer for Make a Wish, Hawaii chapter. The little girl I currently have the pleasure of working with has chosen to go to Disneyworld! I would love to make this countdown for her. One of the best parts of Make a Wish is that it inspires children to stay strong and fight hard if they have something to anticipate and look forward to!! How can I download these numbers to print at home and can I even do that? Thank you and I would appreciate any help or advice you can offer. Have a wonderful day!
