We spilled the Disney surprise...early

We are SOOO bad with secrets. Our big Christmas present this year for our sons (ages 3 and 5) this year is our trip to Disney. We were going to tell them Christmas Eve but ended up doing our whole surprise over the weekend. It was super fun! The boys are sooooo excited to be going back to Disney.

We've almost spilled it, but somehow we've stayed strong. Our kids are 3 and 5 also. The other day my 5 year old said to me, "you know what I want to do? Go to Disney World for Christmas. Not this Christmas, because it costs a lot of money. But maybe next year we'll have enough money saved."

It was soooo hard for me to keep a straight face!

That is really cute! Our five year old insisted we were going in June when school got out. He is bursting with excitement! We are taking my aunt for the first time. She's in her mid-60's and is very excited about going. She has a lot of hip problems so my mom (who is also going) rented an ECV for her. It will be our first time at the park having someone use a mobility device so that should be interesting.

We were going to do one Disney related item each weekend w/ the big reveal Christmas Eve still, but I was afraid Grandma would start dropping too many hints and would ruin the surprise. I'm glad we had the whole month for them to be excited with us though. It just adds to the magic!

I can not keep it secret either!!!
She has been wishing on the moon to go back for 2yrs.
We are going to celebrate her 5th birthday, we are going early though, in Febuary, we can not afford to go on her actual birthday.
I keep on telling her things like -- If we get to go back to Disney & if you get to eat at Cinderella's castle, what princess would you like to dress up as??? -- LOL!!
It will not be a surprise when I finally tell her, with our package, Ariel will be calling her though, & I think I will have Mickey send her a card inviting her. She will like that!!!
We are staying at A.O.A. in the CARS SUITE, we could stay at another resort like a moderate w/ddining that I would like better, but I know she would enjoy the cars better.

Oh...I forgot about the calling part! How exactly does that work...anyone know? My mom and aunt are going with us too but they are in their own room so technically we have two calls. Well, we have one and my mom has one. We could use hers so both of the kids could get a call!

The call is part of my package deal, you can have Ariel, or Sebastion or the candle from B&B, I think she will like Ariel the best.
When they send you the info about the reservations, in it is suppose to be a number for me to call to set it up.

I was disappointed that those were the only choices for calls. Ariel is calling Christmas morning!
