5 tips on surprising your little ones with a WDW vacation!

We’ve all seen those incredible videos of parents telling their kids they are about to head out to a trip of a lifetime at Walt Disney World Resort! Kids are only little for so long. At certain ages, they genuinely believe in all the magic around them. I encourage you to take this chance & give them a surprise that they will never ever forget. Here are 5 quick ideas on how to surprise your “tiny human”. Don’t forget to have the video camera rolling… you’ll want to have that priceless reaction captured on film to cherish forever!

  1. Scavenger Hunt– Have a Disney-themed scavenger hunt right your own home. Hand the kiddos a “pirates treasure map” complete with clues. Use each room in your home as a stopping point with small gifts (Disney coloring books, Disney bathing suit/towel, stuffed animals, DVD’s, etc.) and have the last “stop” on the map be the big reveal! “We’re going to Disney World”!!
  2. Disney Movie Night– Order a Disney movie from the Disney Movie Club & have a Disney movie night with your littles, complete with themed food like fish sticks, gold fish & “ocean blue” Jell-O for a Little Mermaid movie night. At the end of the movie, ask if they would like to meet Ariel and tell them they can because “We’re going to Disney World”!
  3. Build a Puzzle– several sites like Shutterfly & Printer Studio will let you make a puzzle out of your own photo or template. Order a puzzle that claims “We’re going to Disney World”! Put it together as a family & let the exciting squeals of delight ensue!
  4. Character Call– Have a family member or friend, who can imitate a characters voice, call your child & personally invite them to come to the most magical place on Earth! Your little princess will melt when Cinderella asks her to visit the castle!
  5. Last Minute Map– Load up the car! Load up the kids! As you pull out of your driveway, hand your kiddo a map & tell him/her that you need a little help navigating. The night before, be sure to decorate the map of Florida with lots of Mickey heads, character stickers & lots of other magical touches. When they open up the map, they will know that they are about to make the trip of a lifetime… to a Walt Disney World resort!

  1. We surprised my daughter for her 9th birthday when we picked her up from school. In front of her friends at school, we had her open a “gift box” that fell open like a popup card. Inside was a Mickey Mouse cutout holding a banner that said “Surprise! We’re going to Disney world RIGHT NOW!”
