    I would like a WDW planning video sent to me and/or brochures for a WDW surprise reveal. How do I go about getting that?


    I love Walt Disney World vacation surprises! What could be better than unwrapping such a magical present?!

    There are so many options for unique vacation reveals, but unfortunately, Walt Disney World no longer mails vacation planning DVDs as the videos are available online. The videos can easily be viewed on a computer or smart TV. Simply click away and you'll be surprising your family in no time!

    If you are looking for a gift to wrap, keep an eye on your mailbox. Walt Disney World will send a small welcome brochure as your vacation approaches. MagicBands are another great (and wrappable) item that will surprise your family. Since each person will receive a MagicBand, you can wrap each band separately and have everyone unwrap them together. Of course, with this option, you'll need to wait until your vacation is almost here. Depending on your reveal timing, this may or may not fit into your plans.

    Another great idea our family has used is a family scavenger hunt where each item that is found gives a clue to your Disney Vacation. When we surprised our son with a stay at Disney's All-Star Movies, we used clues like a popcorn bucket, a DVD, and a small movie clapboard with the name of the resort written on it. He was very surprised!

    For a more low-key approach, you can also try a Disney puzzle. Don't let the family see a picture of the completed puzzle and ask them to assemble it. When it is complete, they'll be thrilled! For an even more customized approach, you can have a custom puzzle printed at most local stores that print photos. Create a true surprise with photos, and a "We're Going to Walt Disney World" banner. They'll love it!

    I hope this helps you plan a magical reveal!
