    Okay, I have a BIG question!! I am a single mom and never thought I would be able to afford to take my 7 almost 8 yr old daughter to WDW, but I'm doing it! My question is how do I surprise her? We are leaving 3/14-3/18... For both of our birthdays!

    Happy Birthday Kelli!

    I would suggestion perusing the merchandise on the Disney Store website online and perhaps ordering a personalized Walt Disney World Mickey Mouse Ear Hat for your little girl to arrive at your home prior to the start of your vacation. There's also a super cool Birthday Mickey Mouse Ear Hat too! You might wish to include some other essential items for visiting the theme parks, like an autograph book with pen and a lanyard with pins for trading with cast members.

    Then, perhaps you create a fun scavenger hunt around your home with various clues that eventually lead her to the wrapped final gift and a card citing those famous words, "You're Going to Disney World!".

    Be sure to have your video or digital camera at the ready for capturing this priceless and very exciting moment!!

    May your Disney BIRTHDAY vacation be practically perfect in every way!
