Meghan, I love those pictures! You are so lucky to have all of them. I only have one from my first trip (1982). It is a polaroid. It is very faded and wont last to many more years. I tell my kids that is why I take so many pictures of them at WDW. So call you Mom Right now and thank her!

I'm always grateful for how many pictures my mom has taken at WDW. When I was younger, it got a little annoying, but I'm so happy now. I'll be taken hundreds of pictures on this trip. It's going to be amazing!

We just returned from our trip -- ok, we returned the 14th, but I'm just now surfacing. It is great to continue to read about your excitement. We were pleasantly surprised by how short our ride waits were. We didn't even need to use Fastpass once. I'm wishing the same for you!

Welcome home! I hope you had a wonderful trip. I'm glad to hear that you had short waits. That makes me very, very happy!

The Surprise Box

4 days! That's how many days until I leave for WDW!!! I don't even know how I'm even functioning right now! Anyways....I wrapped up gift to give to our DD on Saturday morning. I, of course, took pictures to share with all of you. That way, I won't have to stop my DD to take a picture of each "layer". How annoying would that be?? So, here's what she'll be seeing very early on Sat morning:


Here's the box all wrapped up. This is the same paper we used to wrap up her Nintendo DS and DS games. That way, she'll still be thinking it's a forgotten Christmas gift!


The first layer: These 2 items came with her book that we bought her. Bonus gifts! I like that idea!


I bought her 2 new books that she can read on the plane, in the car, etc. She LOVES "The Magic Tree House" series and she adores cats!


Here's the best WDW book for kids I've ever seen! It's so cool!


This is what the pretend boarding passes look like in the box. EEEEE!!! I can't wait for her reaction!


Here's a close-up of our DD's boarding pass. Isn't it so cute?? Those DISign people are SO talented!! Mine looks just like hers and my DH's has a male pixie on it. As you can tell, he's thrilled about that one!


I can't wait to give her this gift. It's going to be so incredible. The weather is looking AMAZING for next week and I couldn't be happier. I'll probably post one more update this week before we leave. If I have time at the airport, I'll fill you all in on the surprise!!! Thanks for reading!

Oh Meghan the box looks great! She is going to love it.
Did you get any glow items? My DD still likes the glow stuff even at 12!
I think they are great for any age at WDW at night.
4 Days!!!!!!!!

Oh my gosh, I am so so excited for you!! I absolutely LOVE those boarding passes, they are just too cute! And the whole package you've put together is so lovely. Your daughter is so lucky! It's wonderful to have an entire WDW vacation just stretching out in front of you... especially with perfect weather.

My parents are picking us up at 5:30am! We'll be waking up around 4 (shower, get dressed, pack up last minute stuff) and then we'll wake her up around 4:45 or 5am.

Thanks! I just wanted it to be nice and simple, but full of surprises! I'm actually going to be packing one of her light up wands. She was Cinderella for Halloween in 2007 and the costume had a very cute light up "sceptor."

I can't take any credit for those boarding passes. I got them on the DISign threads. But they are just too cute for words, aren't they? The weather does look fantastic!!!
