We have ADR's for Tuskerhouse Breakfast at 8:35am on a non-magic hours day. What time should we plan to be at AK? Is 8 am too early?

We booked online last week for Feb 2-8th, so excited!! I noticed someone posted they were asked when booking if they wanted magic bands. It never gave us that option, we booked on the Disney site. Do we still have the option or were we not given the choice at booking because it was so far into the future and we'll get more info closer to our departure date? My 5 year old really wants a green magic band, he says it's a deal breaker for him 😉 (pretty sure he'll still be on that plane magic band or not!!)

I am booked for January 21-28 and haven't received anything either, I believe you get notification for the Magic Bands 60 days out. So mark it on your calendar

My 3 year old saw me taking her sisters clothes out if her drawers and asked me what I was doing. I lied and told her I was taking away clothes that were too small! Keeping a secret is hard! Thankfully I get to reveal it all tomorrow after school right before we leave!
Yesterday my 6 year old was really rude to me. My husband got so mad at her and said "you don't even know all the things Mommy does for you". I had to stop myself from laughing!

Both my girls keep asking where their princess shirts went... hope they're not on to me...
Thankfully my closet is big enough to store all our suitcases. I lock the bathroom door and pack in secret!

Sounds like a great "learning opportunity" to me. As you're walking down Main Street towards the castle, turn to your 6 year old and remind him/her how lucky he/she is to be there after the way he/she just treated you.

Have fun!!

I had to laugh because our DD (4.5) has no idea that we're leaving for Disney on the 19th (this will be her first trip). She was being rather rude to me last night and my DH said the exact same thing to her....mommy does so many nice things for you, some that you don't even know about.

I still haven't figured out exactly how we are going to tell her, maybe wait till we get to the airport or have her receive an "Invite to Disney" in the "mail" next Saturday and say, wow we should leave..............RIGHT NOW. I'm not getting my hopes up that she will go off the wall bonkers when she finds out because she's never been. When they are this age, you just never know what their reaction is going to be in different situations.

I LOVE surprise trips!!! This was the very first one I did...I did a scavenger hunt each clue led them to a box with disney scrabble tiles with each word...they then had to unscramble the word...



and surprised them with a "weekend trip" to Universal Studios...this was my then 12y/o and 8y/o reaction...



then before we "left" I said hey lets have dinner at T-Rex in Downtown Disney before we head home. I then asked my daughter to take my little one to the bathroom(which she did but grumbled about it the entire time lol) while they were gone I left the final clue on the table...it read "Universal Studios was really neat, now for more fun look under your seat" Under their seats was a box I taped while they were in the bathroom...my dd reading her paper



and these are what the papers said






seriously LOVED every second of this and soooo glad I got their reactions on camera. OK sorry to hijack the thread just read about your surprise trip and wanted to post that it is SOOOOO worth it

Thanks for sharing . My plan is to give my DD6 and DD3 each a gift bag tomorrow after school with a disney nightgown, Minnie Mouse shirt, and autograph book in it. I'm gonna tell them we are going on vacation and clues to where are in the bags, then video the whole thing. Surprise! We are going to Disney World right now!

I love it! We are surprising our 3 girls in 38 days! They are 8, 6, and almost 2. I have a little goody bag for each of them and I wrote this poem for them to read when we wake them up at 2:30am to leave. lol

I know it's bright and early but I promise you'll want to hurry
Today is not the day you think, keep reading to find more clues written in ink
We haven't been in years and we've really missed seeing those ears
For months we have been planning and today your wishes we are granting
No need to fuss cause magic and fun await us
So grab your bags and do a twirl because we are on our way to DISNEY WORLD!

I seriously tear up every time I read it. Can't wait!

That is priceless Cra-z-4-disney!

I surprised my daughter when she was 10. We had spent a lot of time daydreaming and talking about Disney, where we would stay, what we would do, etc. "someday".

One morning I woke her up for school and said, "let's go to Disney tomorrow!" and she freaked! (She's a planner too so I didn't want to drop the bomb as we were leaving, I wanted her to be able to pack the things she wanted). I didn't get it on camera, but it was still priceless and it's actually by far the best trip we ever took to Disney.

It was so funny because I had to keep "stealing" my 12y/o's clothes to pack and she kept asking me where her clothes were and every time I would be like...idk check your floor or maybe you left them at your friends house lol by far the BEST disney trip we ever took, and I will remember it forever!
