    Does anyone have a link to a good video to share its the children to show them what we are going to experience? We are going to do a 'big reveal' as they don't know we are going yet. Thanks!

    Hello, Vikki! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am so excited for your family's first Walt Disney World vacation.

    I suggest ordering the Free Disney Parks Vacation Planning Video. Fill out some basic information and then choose to have the DVD shipped to your home at no charge. Once you are ready for your ‘big reveal’ – have some fun with it! You could wrap the DVD in a big box filled with some helium Disney balloons from a local party store. When the children open the box, balloons will fill the air and they will see the DVD. Pop it in and watch their excitement! Or, plan a fun scavenger hunt that leads them to the TV at the end with the DVD all ready to go – they can just hit ‘play’ on the remote. Another idea would be to pop some popcorn and get ready for a family movie night complete with PJ’s and sleeping bags on the floor. Tell the children that you are just watching a movie about Walt Disney World. After viewing, talk a bit about how amazing it would be to go. Then give each child a gift to unwrap - a personalized character back pack, sunglasses, Disney t-shirts, etc. Then yell – ‘We’re going to Disney World!’

    Now I am even more excited for you! Make sure you catch this on video for you and your family to enjoy for ‘yEARS’ to come.

    Depending on how soon before your departure you ‘big reveal’ is going to be – you can continue the fun with a countdown calendar. There are also thousands of Walt Disney World Vacation videos other families have posted online. This really helps to give them an idea of what they can expect.

    If you need any help along the way while planning, Vikki – please come back and visit us. We would love to help.
