Let me know their reactions...I'm sure Adam will be shocked that he had no idea!

We are doing the same for our kids! Christmas morning can't get here soon enough!! We have bought each of them a princess dress for the BBB, a few Disney shirts, a DCL autograph book, and made a Countdown to Cruise Calendar and Disney stickers to go with. Come Christmas morning, they will be opening these things leading up to their BIG surprise!!

Thanks so much for the suggestions! I have also arranged a phone call for her Christmas morning from Minnie and Mickey These things would be great to have for her to open after she's finished with her call!

So excited!!

Hope your surprise goes well, Tracy!

Hi, Sarah ---

I'm taking my niece and her 5-yr old daughter on Dream Cruise in February. My niece knows, the 5 yr-old does not.

I "googled" to find a photo of Disney Dream, printed it off 8x10, and put it in a Dollar Store frame, made a label "Disney Dream Cruise". I have this wrapped up in a gift box, I printed out a card to go with the gift box....a couple lines on each page....."Your Are Special.....I Have A Special Surpise for You"........."We are going on an Adventure..." etc etc.

I plan to give this to her first. Then, I got her a new Minnie Mouse roller bag, inside this some simple things for the cruise. Mickey/Minnie 2014 calendar (dollar store), stuffed Mickey beanie bag, coloring book, DCL autograph book, Minnie t-shirt.

Plan to arrange the phone call from Mickey mid-January, trying to "stretch out" all the fun.

I love the planning and am so excited thinking of the little one's reaction to it all.....

Enjoy planning the surprise, and of course....the Cruise itself.

Oh, I've also bookmarked some of the best YouTube videos.....like, Princess Meets, AquaDuck.....that I'll share with her along the way.

I surprised DH with an adults only cruise for our anniversary last year (his mom watched the kids and was in on it).
I made tickets that looked like the retro Disneyland ticket books and each ticket listed off memorable moments.
The E ticket was labeled "SURPRISE! You're going on a cruise!"
I had his boss assign him to fake corporate training.
