    Hello - We are surprising my 6yrold w/trip in Jan. How far into MCO airport will we get before we need to tell her?Will we make it to Ft.WildernessCabins?Can I purchase Princess Autograph book w/room for photos when I get to MK?Should I buy prior to trip?

    Well, it will depend on how curious your six year old daughter is. Will she know when the plane is announced for boarding that Orlando is in Florida? Flight attendants or pilots on flights to Orlando frequently make announcements regarding the Mouse's House. There may be many other children on the flight wearing Mickey attire. Someone could ask her "are you going to Disney World"?

    If you make it to Orlando without her guessing your destination, then she's sure to figure it out once you go to the Disney Welcome Center desk. On the way, you may pass the Disney Store in the Main Terminal. After getting your bus assignment for Disney's Magical Express, you will be instructed to approach the red carpet to get in line for a bus to your resort.

    It will be more than evident on the bus as to where you are heading. On most buses, there are video monitors that play a film welcoming guests to Walt Disney World. The video begins to play once you leave the airport. But before you leave, you will have boarded a bus that is clearly marked with a "Disney" sign.

    I think it would be fun to see how long it takes before she asks if Walt Disney World is your destination. I admire your ability to keep such a magical surprise!!

    Princess Autograph books are widely available throughout WDW.
