    Hi! I was just wondering if I receive a receipt for my trip in the mail or just through my email? I don’t wish to receive in the mail due to the trip being a surprise.

    Hi Kelly!

    Thanks so much for reaching out to the Moms Panel! You ask a great question...

    So if you reserve a Disney Vacation package (either online at DisneyWorld.com or over the phone), you will receive a Disney Vacation planning packet, generally within 4 weeks of reserving your vacation. It will say from "Disney Destinations," and, at least for me this year, it says "So many wishes are about to come true" on the front, and "Let your vacation fun begin!" on the back. It's not a receipt, but when you open the envelope, it will describe your itinerary: arrival date, which resort hotel you're staying, and, on the last page, some important dates to remember.

    I'm pretty sure this gets sent automatically and there's no way I'm aware of to prevent it from getting sent out. This always created a little challenge for me on surprise trips, because my 12 year old son loves checking the mailbox, so when I make that reservation, for the next few weeks it's a foot race between me and him as to who gets to the mailbox first! One year he saw Cinderella Castle on the envelope, and I had to say, "Oh, it's just one of those credit card applications," since we got those in the mail all the time. Just trying to find ways to keep the surprise intact and super secret! :-)

    So keep a close eye on the mailbox a few weeks after securing your Disney vacation. Here's to hoping for the perfect surprise!
