Help! Need Ideas for Pregnancy Announcements in WDW!!

I'm so excited to be able to type this - my DH and I have been trying for a baby for two years and I am now 5 weeks along. Shhh! I haven't even told DH yet . I'm waiting for something I ordered to come in and surprise him with it.

But I need some ideas - my parents will be joining us for a few days in Disney during the middle of our trip - we will probably want to tell them while we're there, but I want to do something fun. This will be their fifth grandchild (third one from us), so something like an ornament from a grandchild wouldn't click for them. I don't have my first ultrasound until the day after we get back (which is how we will probably tell the other grandparents) so I can't use anything like that.

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

How about get the family together for a photo in front of the castle, hat...somewhere you like. Then, whisper to the photographer that he/she should say something during the picture. When everyone is ready, instead of "Say cheese," the photog says "Say ____'s Pregnant!" You will have some great photos of the reactions.

Could you take them into a gift shop and ask them for hel picking out something for one of the kids and then pick out a onesie or something obviously babyish. Or get a big brother/sister shirt for your youngest and dress them in it and see how long it takes for them to notice. I like the PP's idea better, though.

IN AK we've had photographers take our picture with us cradling a baby Simba (google Magic Shots for example). Wondering if maybe you could incorporate that somehow?

I also like the PP idea of a photographer catching their reactions, but you could also look - on Etsy there are some cute disney themed "baby on board" shirts:

They're on maternity shirts, but maybe you could ask the shop owners to put it on a non maternity shirt (so it fits you better). You could change in a ladies room or something while in a park, and wait to see when they read your shirt.
Please do not be offended if I don't respond to your post. I lose track of where I've been, even on DISboards Feel free to PM me!
