Help me surprise my daughter!

On October 10th, I'm going to pick up my 11-year-old daughter from school and tell her she has a dentist's appointment.... instead, I'm taking her to Disneyworld!!

This will be just her and I for the first 3 days and then we are meeting up with her best friend (who is also being surprised) at a different hotel!

I'm so excited - I just can't wait! I just got a mini Minnie ears for her American Girl doll and thought I would have the doll sitting out with her "ears" on when we get home to have lunch before the "dentist". I'm going to make Mickey-shaped sandwiches. But, what else can I do to slowly let her in on the secret before we leave? Any ideas?

Thanks for your help!!

What an awesome surprise. When I was a kid we got surprised with Disney tickets tied to balloons wrapped in a giant box...happiest day of mine and my siblings lives!

Pick some random Disney Movies to watch on TV. I also have an app on my phone called Mouseworld Radio that plays music from the themeparks. Place "hidden Mickeys" around the house This is exciting, I hope you make a report after the trip! Have fun!

Our school has a policy where we can only do "early pickups" at the administration office.

Imagine getting called to the office and getting told you're going to Disney!

Talking I did the same thing for my DD when she was in 3rd grade!

Her teacher was in on it!! So fun!! she thought we were going to the dentist too and I said "Let's skip the dentist today" She said "OK" I said what do you want to do??? She said "How about the Zoo?"
I said " How about we go to Disney"???? Her eyes got giant and she was like for real????? I said Yep look in the back of the truck!!! There were all the suit cases and she knew I was serious and I had my nails done...She said " I knew when your nails were all done up something was going on!!"

She started screaming and was totally surprised!! We pulled it off without a hitch!!

It is so much fun!! Have a great time!!! We leave in 19 days and my DD is 15 now and still loves it as much. The other day she asked how many days till I can be happy again.....Geesh I have her hooked!!
