    Our daughter and her fiancé have booked WDW wedding and our son, DIL and 2 granddaughters want to secretly join us as a big surprise for the couple how can we include them an pay for them without the bridal couple finding out?

    Hello Jennifer,

    It gives me great pleasure as the current UK Panelist here at planDisney to wish you a very warm welcome, and to offer our heartfelt congratulations to your whole family on the upcoming wedding of your darling Princess to her very own Prince Charming!

    And what a happily ever after wedding it's sure to be!  After all, what better place to celebrate nuptials than with Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings & Honeymoons at Walt Disney World Resort.

    I'm so happy you've included me in the secret pixie-dusted planning stages of arranging for your dear son, daughter-in-law, and granddaughters to join you on your daughter and future son-in-law's special day this coming November.  So fun!

    I'm truly excited for your whole family as I know 1st hand how incredible a surprise arrival at Walt Disney World Resort makes you feel as my own brother and sister-in-law surprised me and my family by joining us on a Disney holiday too!  I know for them, the biggest difficulty in planning such a magical surprise, was hiding their obvious excitement.

    My top tips for creating a Disney wedding/holiday surprise are -

    - Create My Disney Experience accounts for your son and his family, but don't for now, connect their plans using Family & Friends

    - Book your son & his family their Disney Collection Resort hotel reservation, Ultimate Tickets, and flights via the Walt Disney Travel Company website

    - Secure Disney Park Pass reservations and Advanced Dining Reservations and so on to match the rest of your party

    - Upon arrival at Walt Disney World Resort and after the BIG reveal - connect your son's plans with the rest of the party via My Disney Experience, Family & Friends or stop by any Guest Relations locations and ask Cast Members to help aline your already made plans.

    - Also, if you'll be staying in the same Disney Collection Resort hotel altogether - upon Resort Check-in, place a request with Cast Members to see if they can allocate your family with rooms in close proximity to each other.  Please do bear in mind that Cast Members will always do their best to accommodate your family's needs, but requests are of course, based on current availability.

    And with just a little faith, trust, and pixie dust you'll have created an unforgettable family wedding and holiday to Walt Disney World Resort that you'll all hold in your memories forever!

    Jennifer, since I'm already in on your secret holiday plan, I'd be delighted to have the opportunity to offer any further assistance should you need it.  Just give me a little whistle at planDisney ~ Jane
