    Flying to Disney in 24 days, we haven't told my 4 year old DD that we are going. She would make us and herself insane from anticipation!!! Any suggestions on how to "break the news" to my 4 year old DD on the airplane or when were there?

    Hi Angela - oh my husband and I did the same thing one time with my girls.  To this day I still remember the looks on their faces when they figured out where we were going!  Perhaps you could break out a Disney coloring book on the plane or a small stuffed Mickey and say, "Wouldn't you love to go visit Mickey and his friends?"  When she says yes - you tell her she is headed to the most magical place on earth.  She is such a great age to go to WDW.  However you decide, I hope you all have the most magical vacation.  Thanks for coming to the Mom's Panel.
