Thank you all for sharing my excitment

We're not telling them until the day we leave. W've done the surprise 9 weeks out before, then last year we booked 6 months out and they knew so it wasn't a surprise and this time while they are getting ready for school the morning of the 16th September a big box will appear at the front door with a massive mickey helium balloon and a letter telling them they are not going to school today they're going to Disneyland.
Some other aussie did something similiar last year, can't quite remember who it was??? but I loved the idea!
It's going to be so hard to keep until then but the screams will be worth it. We were just eating brekkie with the kids saying "this time last year we had breaky at Mimi's and then to Disneyland for our last day of our trip". Hubby and I were faking our sadness
The only problem so far is HoJo's is booked out and we really want to stay there again. I'm hoping someone will cancel, so fingers crossed !

Oh YAAAAAAAY, I am soooo excited for you. I hope you got the great deal on airfares you were hoping to get

Do you plan on going to the Trick or Treat party? This year it is going to be in Disneyland instead of CA but I reckon it will still be good. We went last year and thought it was amazing - loved it, loved it, loved it. Still have some of the lollies left sitting here at home

Enjoy the planning and good luck with not letting it slip out

How exciting for your kids

We are going in September too and haven't told the kids yet but don't think we could do the on the day thing. We will probably tell them a few week before we go

thanks Aussiegirls! yes we got a great price. Got the quote a few days ago with flight centre beating the price we got from V and they held it until we paid yesterday. Checked the prices today and we paid $6400 for the 5 of us. Today the same flights are $7800 .

Would love to go the Trick or Treat party because I remember you saying it was great, but I don't think it will be when we are there. Do they only have it right before Halloween?

Zaccy, when in September are you going? How are you going to tell the kids?

Thank you all again for sharing my excitement
