Super Sixth Birthday Surprise Pre Trip

On a high from our first trip in June 2010 we were desperate to book as soon as we got home. We already had a summer holiday planned and figured it would just stretch us too much to go again before Christmas, then a stroke of genius hit ..... let's do a surprise trip in Feb 2011 for dd's birthday!! Thanks to 40% off two days later we were booked up again for 14th-18th Feb '11 at HNY. I really wanted to try another Disney hotel but loved the HNY so much I couldn't resist.

So the Cast as before is me 29 (I will tell anyone who'll listen I am 29 whilst I still can) Disney convert mum 62 Disney grandma secret Stitch chaser and dd 5 princess mad birthday girl

Mum and I were super excited, I couldn't wait to make a new ticker but Feb'11 seemed so far off so we had to get back to reality and throw ourselves into real life booooooo!

With summer out of the way and Halloween around the corner it made February feel a bit more real at last. We started to think about our trip and throw some ideas around, mum and I would be huddled over the laptop or found whispering in the kitchen. As Christmas drew nearer we were getting so excited all we could talk of was Disney and we started making mistakes all over the place somehow we always managed to recover from slip ups to dd and keep the secret. I really haven't a clue how we've managed it

Dd got a huge Stitch for Christmas and mum could be found at times having a sneaky cuddle when she didn't think we'd seen A few more princess dresses have been added to the collection and a new Minnie was needed!

Christmas passed and dd started talking non stop about her birthday, I have perfected the art of question dodging and commiting like a politician Her birthday is on the 16th Feb whilst we are away and for some crazy reason I have a fancy dress party planned for her on 13th Feb ... we fly out at 06:15am on the 14th

As a double surprise her dad is now getting in on the action, he lives in London and dd doesn't see much of him at all so he is getting the Eurostar for her actual birthday on 16th Feb. I keep having to remind myself 'I'm doing this for dd, I can't uninvite him'

So far I have booked Walt's for a late lunch on Day 1, Auberge for 12pm Day 2, Cafe Mickey with birthday cake 6:30pm Day 3. We didn't do Walt's last time so really looking forward to this and probably going to do Annettes on Day 4 .... I 'need' my veggie burger

lol @ the veggie burger! just finished your last TR!

your dd is going to have a brilliant time!!
maybe get as much packing as possible done on the 12th and be as organised as you can so that you can enjoy her dress up party and not have any big things to get sorted after the long and undoubtedly stressful party day. DD had a 4th birthday party and it was an experience!! im sworn off for a few years!

hope you have a great time and theres lovely big stitch slippers in the village shop your mum might just like

Thanks, I can't wait now. I am just planning how to break the surprise. Unfortunately the parties when they're at school seem to get bigger this one is a share with some friends so there will be the full 35 kids eeek! I am off work on Friday 11th so am planning to pack then stash the suitcases in the cellar

Yay sounds like it is going to be another magical trip! You are so brave having the party the day before you go....but then again its probably a nice way to distract yourself! Like Kizzabell says get as much as you can organised before the party, hopefully your dd will be tired after party and go to bed early!

Nearly there now!

Think I've finished the shopping off for the trip, ordered some of the 'little hotties' from ebay and can't wait to try them out!

Having a little panic about the party, I've got most of the bits needed for the kids party bags (except for the bags themselves), dd has picked out which cake she wants and has decided she's going to be Rapunzel at the party, I am just trying to talk her out of wearing the wig ... really don't fancy brushing that through after 35 kids have pawed it.

Mum has been in 'training' going for extra long walks in prep for the non stop Disney marathon and speed walking olympics
