I blogged some earlier ideas on how to surprise your kids with a trip to Disney in July, which you can find here- if you missed it, there's some really fun ideas there.
Now that the holidays are approaching- and what better gift could you give than a trip to Disney (which I have many clients already doing)! I couldn't imagine how hard it would be to hold the secret in... but it would be so exciting!
Just a quick blurb to point out how great this works- all it takes is $200 down for a deposit for a trip, and then you have until 45 days before your trip to pay it off...so you give a great present, plan a vacation with me for free, and you can just make payments whenever you want until your trip that could be in March, July, September, anytime- and you could have a little extra money, because all it takes is $200 to reserve the room!
Anyway, back to the post- if you are surprising your kids, wife, husband, grandparents, neighbor, dog, or anyone else in the world-now is a great time to surprise them.
I'm going to share with you a couple of ideas- and I can't help but just imagine the look on my kids face if I were to pull one of this off. My only problem is that my kids are beginning to learn that we go to Disney nearly every year... makes it a bit tough to surprise them!
This one is one of my all time favorites.
First, the idea. You can buy fortune cookies online, and put in your own custom message. You could put the entire message in one fortune cookie or break up the message in multiple fortune cookies, saying "You're going to Disney!"
Custom Fortune Cookies is one place (of many) that you can order online. They also make giant fortune cookies- you could wrap up the fortune cookie, or just bring it in for dinner.

I love the look on their faces-it certainly tugs on my heart! Seriously, $200 gets it started.

Other ways to surprise your family with a trip to Disney:
- A Mickey Trail.
This is similar to leaving a trail of flower petals to a bouquet of flowers or a Hershey kiss trail.
You can purchase the Mickey Mouse pretzels from Disney's Chip & Dale Snack Company and have the trail lead to a sign that says "We're going to Disney!"
You can order custom M&M candy here, with your own letters. If you children are a little older, you can have them try to figure out a phrase- "Disney World"- and wait for the surprise on their face.
-Custom Picture Book
You can buy picture books from a couple of places online- I always use Shutterfly and they have turned out wonderful. You can find Shutterfly's custom book here.
You can begin the book with "We" and a picture of your family, then "are going" and then put a picture of a plane or luggage, and then end it with "to Disney!" and have a picture of the Castle or Mickey.
Really, you don't even need to buy a book like this- it'd be so easy to make!
I still have many more ideas on how to surprise your family with a trip to Disney- I'll be sharing them soon. I'll go to any length to make my clients happy!
I'm going to end this post with another great video- I can watch these videos all day long. I love seeing the pure joy and all of the emotion, and this one is full of it. This could be you-all it takes is one quick email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
