Thanks, Dolly. I haven't had a chance to post all the links. But I couldn't have done it without all your great posts and instructions.

These extra things are going to make our trip that much more special. I'm getting so excited.

How lucky your son is to have such a thoughtful Mom! I want to do a lot of these same ideas for my kids and am super excited to see how others "execute" these idea. Great job and I hope you have a fabulous trip!

The first package from Mickey was delivered today (right before the snowstorm). Made for some nice entertainment on a day we're all snowed in at home. Of course, now we're all ready to leave.

A package also came for DSis from the BBB. I'll post those pics shortly. I couldn't post them before because she reads these boards.

Wow, these are amazing, you must be so pleased how they turned out.

To anyone who says that its a waste of time, overboard or that kids won't have anything left to enjoy when they get there - errrrr, have you been to WDW!?

Thanks for sharing your ideas, I've really been inspired.

In addition to the gifts for my son and the Princess goodies for DSis I also had presents for DH. He knew about all the others and was totally not expecting anything. So after our first day was a little rough (we left home with no power and just ahead of a blizzard), I surpised him with is first present -- Transformer Mickey.

DH is a huge Transformers fan and he knew about this item, but when he last looked they were only available in Japan. Luckily I found it on Amazon along with Transformer Donald that he got later in the week.

When DS got his AK basket, DH also got his childhood favorite -- Piglet.

A little something for everyone. Of course, while I was doing all this, DSis was putting together goodies for me too. In truth, we probably overdid it (the presents alone took up two small suitcases) but with the trip so close to Christmas it was fun to spread the presents out.

I absolutely love this idea. My DD will be 16 when we go next year. I wonder what I could do for her? Time to put on my thinking cap. Thanks for sharing this. What a thoughtful mother you are

I actually wrote a blog post recently about this subject on Capturing Magic - http://capturingmagic.me/the-park-ex...sney-gift-bags.

I'll be posting about more of my creative pixie dust in the next few months.
