    We are flying out on the 14th to WDW for Xmas – We managed to keep the trip a secret all year from my 5 and 9 year old sons (from Feb). ;)

    My DW decided to tell them using a handmade advent calendar in the shape of an xmas tree (on the back of a door) – in day one (the trunk) we put together a folder of our trip plans using pictures (my youngest is Autistic so visual aids work well)

    When they opened it they went Crazy :dance3: – so nice to see their reaction. We love Disney but sometimes lose sight of how Kids must see it – fingers crossed for a great trip :thumbsup2:thumbsup2:thumbsup2

    Firstly, well done for keeping it secret for so long, that must have been so difficult.

    It must have been so good watching their reaction. I hope you all have a wonderful time out there, its certainly magical with all the decorations etc up all over the place. Make sure you go and see the gingerbread house in the Grand Floridian..and all the other decorations/trees in the delux hotels. I love the one in the Wilderness Lodge..
    Happy Christmas to you all.:)
