Is anyone surprising their kids? My DD went for the first time two years ago when she was two and she can't wait to go back. She knows we are going but obviously doesn't understand exactly when so we were thinking of surprising her that morning when we wake her up to go. Her and I watched some videos of kids getting surprised and she loved it. Just wondering if anyone can share some ideas, suggestions, or their plans! Thanks!

We are!

We took DD1 for her 5th birthday 2 years ago and are taking DD2 for her 4th birthday. The girls think we are going for DD2's 5th birthday next year. Our plan is to pick up DD1 from school on Friday and drive straight from there. We haven't decided if we're going to tell the kids when we pick up DD1 or if we'll just let them figure it out when we pull into AoA. They are used to long car trips so it won't be a shock that we're taking a road trip, just where we end up.

I'm so excited now I can't wait.

I am surprising DS7 also. Right now, the plan is to pick him up after school and surprise him with a trip to LegoLand. Little will he realize that we're staying at WDW and going all the places I asked him to just pick one of! At least until we get there (I hope). I haven't ironed out the details yet, but everyone who knows we're going knows to keep it a secret from him.

My kids know we're going and when. What they don't know is that we're staying in a lion king suite.

Great ideas guys! They are all going to be so surprised!! My DD wouldn't go too long in the car without asking where we are going! That's why we were thinking of just telling her as soon as we get up. Wasn't sure if we should just tell her or give her something Disney themed and let her figure it out.

I won't go into all the details and logistical problems, but suffice it to say, it will be an interesting few days ahead for all of us. I don't tend to worry or get stressed about things, so I'm good there. It would just be good to have a couple of things settled for my girls' sakes. Thanks for listening to my middle-of-the-night ramblings! My DH is fast asleep and doesn't even know our daughter is in labor. He'll get a surprise when he wakes up in a couple of hours!

Meanwhile, I'm watching House Hunters and Property Brothers
Just now reading this and sending prayers for all

If we decide to change, I'll be canceling our dining reservations, including CDP with NPH.
I'll let you guys know first.

Thats stinky but at least your still going and if you like to plan you get to have more fun doing that.

Yesterday I got the road ID bracelet that I made for DS4 that has both DH's and my cell # in case he gets separated or something. I showed it to DS and tried to explain what it was for and I think I freaked him out with with the thought of him ever getting separated from us. Honestly until reading about it on the Dis we had never thought about this idea as our kids are practically glued to our side when we go somewhere crowded. And DH isn't too thrilled about the whole idea either (he thinks that would never happen to us) but I might still make DS wear it.
The last time we went I bought my daughter a watch and wrote our cell #'s on it. I feel better knowing the kids have our cell #'s. I would def have him wear it. I've also heard about taking pix of them first thing every morning so you know what they are wearing. Scary to think about but it's better to be prepared.

We are surprising our kids as well, but my youngest is 6. I plan to tell them the day we leave, otherwise, they do not sleep well the night before and that makes for cranky kids (and cranky me, lol)! I would like to tell them on the way to the airport, but dh would like to do it an hour or so before we leave so that the teens can pack their stuff. I found a small globe at the craft store (World), plan to print out a picture of Walt, and have some foam letters that they will need to unscramble for Disney. Hopefully they will be able to put it all together at that point.
