    I am surprising my daughter in dec with a trip to disney the week of her birthday. i was wondering what would be some good ideas to help hint around before hand that we are going?!

    Hello Shea!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I hope you are having a magical week. Surprising the kids with a trip to Disneyland Resort is so much fun! In fact, I did just that a few days ago. We are getting on the plane tomorrow!

    How I love to surprise my boys is by having small clues a couple days leading up to the big reveal. I’ve had family movie night where we play Finding Nemo or Zootopia or Frozen. I’ve made desserts in a Disney theme or classic Mickey Mouse colors. I’ve seen a friend, and fellow panelist Andrea, make a monorail countdown calendar for her family.

    There are so many ways to surprise the kids. I’d suggest looking at a site like Pinterest for some fun and creative ideas! I hope this helps and let me know if you have any other questions as you plan your visit!

    See you real soon!
