    Surprise trip for 11yr DS. Need help with how to pull over surprise. Telling a week before on Xmas morn. Any ideas? Also, we will get there NYEve around 3pm if we don't go to the parks what can we do to bring in the new year in Disney style w/o the crwd

    Hi Carie!

    Are you handy in the kitchen?  I think a fun way of surprising kids with a trip to Disney World is to show it with food!  My favorite website is Disney Family and they have TONS of recipe ideas that are Disney inspired.  These cookies are simply adorable and scream MICKEY MOUSE!   This Tangled Tower of cupcakes would make the perfect centerpiece.  

    You can custom make an invitation "from" Mickey Mouse himself and put it in the center of the table inviting her to spend the New Year with him and all of his friends at Walt Disney World.  You can add a little something special and purchase a Mickey Mouse stuffed animal (at your local Disney Store or online) to put next to it and say Mickey wanted her to have something from him to tide her over until vacation starts. 

    Ready to get creative?

    Have a magical day!
