Great idea. I'll have DS and DS's friend practice them. Do you think 100+ days is enough time to practice?

Bump means to move the topic up to possibly get more replies

I did one country a week last year before our vacation with my 4 yr old. She loved it. We had a German meal (brats, potatoes, rye bread, German beer), we had Mexican (quesadillas, margaritas although none for her at 4 yrs old! LOL!), at the library they had fairy tales from around the world so we got some great Italian folk tales, etc... I think it made the WS a little more special for her. She even got a certificate in Mexico from a CM for being able to count to 20 in Spanish!

7th trip and counting!

Christmas Around the World

Do not for get the Christmas , and other timely greetings during the holidays or birthday greetings to your child to keep in their passport,( Ive got it easy my dd bday is Dec 26, so she gets both )and here in Hawaii we definitely celebrate " Japanese" New Years, so look for your own local type customs and learn more about them. We dont know much about KWANZA but learning about it was something I thought would be useful in many schools , I know ours are multi cultural here.....so lets start the holiday greetings too ... here goes ...god jule Norway.... now yours too your holiday greeting... ours is MELE KALIKIMAKA ( even if your Japanese in Hawaii). :

Enjoy! Ciao!

I subscribed to this thread in November, 2006 and just saw the update today. Time for an update:

We went to WDW this past December and the kids did this. The DS9 and DD7 practised before we got to the parks and were able to say most of the greetings. All but one of the Cast Memebers were very impressed if not by the pronounciation(sp), but by the effort.

DS got a free pin out of it. He had approached a cast member in Japan and said hello and was ready to ask to trade pins. The girl was so impressed with the greeting, that she refused to take a pin in trade for the one he wanted from her.

Enjoy your trips,

Maz

Thanks so much Baloo!!!

This is an excellent idea. My kid (9yo) is at that stage where he is really interested in learning about other countries and cultures. He is learning Spanish at school at the moment (will come in handy at the Mexico part of WS ) Doing something fun like this will really grab his attention - I knew he would love this part of Epcot, but he will enjoy it even more now!
