Our WDW surprise
So we decided to make our recent trip a surprise, for several reasons. Among them, the fact that our kids would be missing school and we didn't want DS9 to be distracted. DS7 has autism and pretty much no concept of time, so if we uttered the words Disney World, he would think we are going right.this.very.second. Since we planned this trip for a full year, that would have been a really long time for him to wait (we rented DVC points 11 months out).

How we broke the news was a little bit mean, and you can see DS9 get a little upset, but he recovered very quickly. :goodvibes

Love it!!! We also did a surprise WDW trip for our kids. Check out my story and my blog post about deciding whether surprising your kids is the way to go.

that's so cute! I can't remember my parents surprising me ever with a trip but I know if/when DH and I have children I will for sure be surprising them!

Cute! We are going to Disney in a week and a half :cool1: It's a surprise for my kiddos (8, 7, 4, and 21 months). We will be in Orlando for a conference, but have one free weekend. My mom is flying in, and we have reservations for that weekend at All Star Movies. Saturday morning we have a meeting and then we will drive to All Star and knock on the hotel room door and let Grandma tell them (she is taking us)! I. can't. wait!! I know my girls especially are going to FLIP. And my 4yr and 21m will have a blast once we get there, whether they really understand what we are doing before we do.
