    We are surprising our 4 kids with a trip to Disney World in January and we are looking for an awesome way to tell them, can you help?

    Hi Russell!

    Oh boy, I’m so excited to hEAR that you’ll be in the Most Magical Place on Earth in less than a month! I'll bet it's getting hard to keep this a secret from your four kids and you are eager to let them in on this excellent news. 

    Surprising your family with a Walt Disney World vacation sounds like a ton of fun, and I’m more than happy to help you with this endeavor! I’ve seen so many creative ideas shared online that truly the sky’s the limit on this one. The point is to make it personal to your family, highlight all the things that they love at Disney and incorporate those into the big reveal. Don’t forget to record their reaction for all the feels later on!

    One way to sprinkle pixie dust by announcing your travel plans is to create an unboxing. Wrap slips of paper in individual boxes that say, “We’re going to Walt Disney World” and prepare for the eruption of screams when the reality of that news sinks in. Another fun and interactive way to let your family know is to make a scavenger hunt leading them on a quest to find all the clues. The final clue could include a Disney plush from shopDisney that they can snuggle with on the journey. One other route that is also practical is to have matching t-shirts with your family name and designed with your favorite characters. 

    You can continue with the surprises by ordering a celebration basket, balloons, or sweet treats for delivery to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel from Disney’s Floral and Gifts. I've been on the receiving end of several of these wondrous gifts and have been wowed every single time. I think that anytime Mickey can send you a present is a good day!

    Please stop back by planDisney if you think of any additional questions. I hope that the surprise announcement has everyone giddy for days as you countdown to your magical vacation.
