Oh my gosh, that is sooooo cool how you were able to keep it a secret! For so long too. I think I told my kids....get this....10 minutes after we decieded to go !!!! DH looked at me and shook his head...heehee

I WISH I could keep it a suprise like that it would be soooo much fun. Props to you for pulling it off. And you all look so happy and excited in your pictures.

Anxiously awaiting more

ANYwho....about 20 minutes into our 45 minute flight, I started pulling out gift bags from MICKEY and FRIENDs....
Aaron & Ethan, arriving at the airport, STILL NO CLUE


Aaron on the plane, not sure WHAT is going on, still...


Watching them look out the window:


How we told them? Letters from Mickey, of course!



At some point, Ethan asked was he dreaming

NOW THEY KNOW!!!
This is just priceless. I would have been sobbing. It's too good. You did it!! What a surprise.

I made it over to your trip report, Wow this is awesome I'm loving the report and the pictures so far , it was no neat how you kept everything a secret and the pic of the reveal --Priceless

I can't wait to read more

This reminds me of a surprise trip for DD for Christmas of 06 .. the week before Christmas I told her she could open one gift ... I wrapped a large box with several smaller wrapped boxes about 10 in all she kept unwrapping each one had a small hint the the last one had we're going to Disney staying at AKL safari view by the way we leave at 3 am , she was so excited then the panic "I have to pack ..not knowing I had already packed most of her things ) This was one of the best trips .

Wow, I can't believe you kept quiet till you was in the air. And I was thinking about letting the cat out of the bag Friday night ( the night before). How much fun!

Melissa,
What a great trip report and what a special memory for your boys! You know that they will remember that forever and will talk about the time "you surprised them..."

I second what Kari said "I would have been crying as well" - in fact I feel emotional just reading about it. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Hey Melissa, I made over here to your trip report!!! I am loving it! Makes me remember when I surprised my kiddos last year! Both their teachers knew, all my friends knew. I packed everything. The afternoon we were leaving, I loaded the car and asked my ds (4 at the time), why do you think we have all this luggage and he replies, we are going to GWL LOL I say no, where else would we be going? Finally, he figures Disney and was thrilled! We go to pick up dd from school early and pull her out of gym and she is freaking out something is wrong. I say, no we just have to go. Finally ds blurts out ... we are going to see Mickey Mouse! It was priceless and our best trip so far! It was my gift to them, to start our new lives together after my ugly divorce was finalized.

Okay, enough about me .. I am waiting for more now!!!

Hi, Melissa! Popping in to join your TR! I'm a little late (story of my life!) but I'm here!!!

I don't know how anyone can keep a trip to WDW a surprise! Kudos to you, girl! I couldn't do it.....even in my sleep I talk about my trip!

I can't wait to hear more and see some more of those awesome DISigns. You know you are addicted when you see a shirt/book/letter and say, "Oh, that's XXX's DISign!"

That is sooo true. My parents did the same thing for us back in 1983. Revealed the secret at the terminal. they will definately remember it. I still do.
