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
