    below is a poem that I partially found online back in 2007 and added to through the years. I wish I knew where I got the original from so I could give credit to some parts but I don't. Anyway, I have added and taken things away to fit our family so feel free to do the same. I plan in reading it to my son tomorrow night and print out a copy of it and leave it on my parents pillow for when they climb in bed tomorrow night. It will be my sons first trip and my parents first trip in over 30 years. Enjoy!

    'Twas the night before Disney and all through the house,
    everyone’s excited to go see the mouse!

    The suitcases we’ll close before going bed,
    to see visions of characters dancing in our heads.

    Off to Mickey and Minnie’s party we’ll go,
    to see magical parades and amazing shows.

    We'll stand on Main Street and watch the parade,
    while we drink our frozen lemonade.

    “It’s a Small World” will be so fun,
    “Food & Wine Festival” here we come!

    Down the "Mountain" we'll make a splash,
    and in the shops we'll spend our cash.

    From down in our boat the “Pirates” we’ll see,
    and when we ride “Dumbo” we'll all scream "Wheeee!"

    In the "Mountain" we'll zoom through space,
    and on “Buzz's” ride we'll be the shootin' ace.

    Off to the castle to see the fireworks show,
    it'll be so beautiful…Oh I can’t wait to go!

    It’s not “just a place” I’ll repeat with a sigh…
    it’s where fish can talk and elephants fly!

    “Magic Carpets” and “Pirates Galore,”
    ”Singing Bears” and so much more.

    “Talking Bugs” and a huge “Dinosaur,”
    sights and smells in the air we’ll “Soar!”

    You see Goofy's our hero and Mickey's our friend,
    also Minnie and Daisy, the list never ends.

    Chip n Dale, the princesses too,
    Tigger, Piglet, and Winnie the Pooh!

    It may sound funny, ludicrous, and wild,
    but it’s the only place you can act like a child.

    All hopes and dreams will come true you see,
    as we spend this week in the magical world of Disney!

    Now it’s time to snuggle in our beds,
    and begin to dream about the days ahead.

    3 o’clock will come early and we must awake,
    to the airport we’ll go, a plane we must take.

    We’re all so excited it’s the last night in town,
    for tomorrow we’ll be Disney World bound!

    The trip’s finally here and we’ll fly out of sight
    Happy dreaming to all and to all a good night!

    Typhoon Lagoon, bring your pail for the sand,
    don't miss the Magic Kingdom's New Fantasyland!

    Epcot abounds with blooms and culture,
    Stop by Spaceship Earth to see your future!

    "It's a Small World" will be so fun,
    Let's get a Dole Whip and sit in the sun!

    We have been looking for an idea to use to tell our kids about the surprise Thanksgiving trip that we have planned. You have just given us that idea! We'll tweak a few things to fit our trip and it will be perfect. Thank you!

    This is great! Do you mind if I post this on my blog (disneyparksplanning.com)? Of course, you'll receive credit and all but, again, great poem!

    I don't mind, I just wish the other person who started it off and gave me the idea years ago could get some credit too.

    glad you enjoyed it!
