    We are surprising our boys that are 4 and 5 with a trip to Disney and we are so excited!!! I was wondering if there is any fun way to tell them?

    Hi Katherine!
    Awesome! I'm so excited for your boys and I wish I could be there to see their faces when they figure it out! I have a few ideas. You could tell them you have a job related event far from home and that they will have to come with you. Once on the plane/bus/car, you could give them a Disney related card or gift. Or, you could bring a Walt Disney World Resort related puzzle and once they've finished it, ask them if they would like to see it up close. They will start asking questions immediately!
    We surprised our kids with a trip to Disney last year. We hired a car service and told them there were no parking spaces where we were going. My son, then 6, was suspicious when he saw the car. As soon as he realized we were near the airport, he asked if we were going on a plane. We couldn't help it and told them we were going to Orlando. He immediately asked: "Are we going to Disney?" When we said yes, they began to cry! But they were happy and excited tears.
    Hope this helps and have a magical vacation!
