For these Disney-inspired gender reveal ideas, I stuck with the traditional blue for boys and pink for girls. Feel free to use whichever colors best suit your theme—like orange for a little Nemo, for example. Just make sure guests know in advance which is which!
I recommend enlisting help from vendors, like your neighborhood baker, or friends to keep the surprise. Happy planning!
Fill a large cardboard box with Mickey-shaped balloons in colors corresponding to your baby’s gender. Guests can yell “oh, boy!” or “oh, girl!” when the balloons are released. And it would be absolutely adorable to photograph the little one with a Mickey balloon for their first birthday photos.
Have party guests vote “prince” or “princess” as the party begins. You can make a large sign on inexpensive foam board or chalkboard, craft crowns for guests to wear, and decorate with castles. Whether a prince or princess, the new baby will be treated like royalty.
Treats as Sweet as Hunny
Winnie the Pooh loves his hunny. Just like the silly old bear, your guests will be rumbly in their tumbly as they see yummy treats filled with a pink or blue surprise. Cakes and cupcakes are popular, but any treat makes for a sweet surprise. For example, ask guests, “What will baby bee?” with Winnie the Pooh Cupcake Cones.
You don’t need to have Mr. Incredible’s strength to make this gender reveal a smashing good time. You can DIY your own Disney-themed piñata, like this Mike Wazowski craft or try an iconic Mickey with question marks for a simple but magical design. Then fill the piñata with pink or blue candy and streamers for the party.
Baby’s First Outfit
Will you be shopping for Tinker Bell or Peter Pan? Select two outfits, but have one wrapped. At your gender reveal celebration, see what your little one will be wearing.
ChEARs to the Baby-to-Be
Mickey ears can be used to announce if your baby is a Mickey or Minnie. Then add them to your hospital bag for a follow-up photo op.
