    My extended family is meeting at WDW this fall for a family reunion and my husband and I just found out we are expecting our first baby. What is a creative way we can break the news to them while we're there?


    I have a few ideas.

    - Get a "First Visit" button from the guest services desk at a theme park. Pin it to your shirt near your belly-button and see if anyone notices.

    - Have the Disney Florist send a grandma themed bouquet or basket to your mom in her room. The florist can be reached at 407-827-3505.

    - Buy Disney-themed baby clothing. Bring the bag with you to a meal and ask the group if they want to see your souvenirs.

    - Have a cake delivered to a meal that says "We're expecting!" The cake hotline number is 407-WDW-CAKE.

    - Have Mickey Ears embroidered with the words "Grandma," "Aunt," etc. Send them to a restaurant or to the hotel rooms of your family. The florist above could help you with this.

    - At a character meal, privately speak to a character "handler." Enlist their help in getting Mickey (or whatever character) to point to your belly or put an ear to your belly or something like that.

    - Get a small rattle for each member of your group. Before a meal, have your hubby go to the restaurant and ask the host or hostess to have a rattle waiting at each place setting before your party is seated.

    - Order a bottle of champagne for the table to toast the family reunion. Then you turn down the champagne and tell them why.

    - Dine at the Coral Reef. Have a diver swim by with a "We're expecting" sign. Info on how to do this can be found at the end of the post HERE.

    - Have a renunion photo taken by a PhotoPass photographer. For the first shot, have the photographer tell everyone to "Say Cheese." For the second shot, have the photographer tell everyone to say, "Jennifer's pregnant!

    Whatever you choose to do, I'm sure it will be a trip that the whole family will always remember.
