Actually, DH and I went to Disney (in 2009) when I was pregnant with my son and we got "Mommy" and "Daddy" monogrammed on our ears in Downtown Disney. We asked the lady if it was ok and she said "Well, what else is the kid going to call you?"

But I have heard that some won't do it. If nothing else, buy the ears and have them monogrammed when you get home? I'm sure whatever you choose to do will be perfect!

This NOT my idea...I got it from a super cute YouTube video I watched.

I watched a video where a couple was getting their caricature done and the woman surprised her husband by telling the artist ahead of time to sketch in her pregnancy announcement!

Maybe you could have someone video you and your family getting sketched, just sitting there looking all normal and then have the artist give you a baby bump in the final picture. You could then reveal it to the camera when it's completed. Just a thought.

A link for the video in case anyone wants to see it: http://youtu.be/OPZaRXxjQik

It made my heart melt! I want to do something cute like that to surprise my (soon-to-be) hubby one day!

=( it wouldve been a great idea
Congrats ! What fun. We call our second child our Disney Souvenoir, since we brought him home from the trip. Too bad my DW wouldn't let me name him Walter Elias.

my ideas ...

Take a picture pointing to the "Expectant Mothers Should Not Ride" part of the sign, and then post it to Facebook with the caption "I guess I can't go on Splash Mountain"

Either that or take a family picture on Main Street with a double wide stroller, with your daughter sitting on one side and a "This Space Reserved for Little Sister or Brother" sign next to her.

Maybe you can get the Dapper Dans to dedicate a chorus of "Coney Island Baby" to you.

One thing you could do is make a video of some of the cast member around world showcase or anywhere really welcoming the new arrival in different languages and then show it to your family and when they ask you what they are saying you can tell them. IDK just a thought.

I don't know about "Mommy" but my DD17 just got a pair in April with a nickname of hers that is definitely not a name, and all they did was ask her how to spell it.

I'm looking for similar ideas. I was thinking of doing the mouse ears. When we went to Disney several years ago, we had just decided to start trying and we spotted a sign on the window of the big Disney store in Downtown Disney that said, "we're going to have a baby!" My husband and I had someone take our picture in front of it. It was kind of subtle as it was just words on a clear display window, but we thought it was cute. We held the picture back and put it on the back of our Christmas card when we actually were pregnant.

It was part of the what will you celebrate campaign, but it was still up the last time we went, a couple of years later. They had a variety of things you would celebrate, so if you still spot those on the windows, look around that one should be there too.

I found out I was expecting DD#2 on DD#1's 1st trip to WDW. I went into one of the shops on Main street and bought a baby Mickey and a gender neutral baby onesie. The cast member gave me a free blank card to write a message on and some pixie dust that they put into the bag.

Then on Main street we picked a spot and I told the photopass person to make sure to get some good pictures because I had a surprise for DH. DD handed him the bag and he opened up the package at that point and we got some great shots. In front of the castle as a family.

This inspired an idea to videotape the Barber Shop quartet singing a song for the new baby and showing the video to the fam later!

We just told our family about our 2nd baby back in February. We had everyone over and for dessert, we got a special cake made for our DD that was in the shape of Aurora (Sleeping Beauty)...on the dress part of the Aurora cake, it said "Big Sister". We presnted it to our family by saying we got a special cake for our DD for dessert and then laid it out on the table infront of DD. The reactions were awesome and we got it all on video. First it was quiet while reading, then you start to hear the various gasps, and then the screaming ensued, LOL!

You said you have reservations for CRT... Maybe you can have a sign on the fourth chair at your table say "Reserved for Baby #2" and take a picture?
