Many parents envision surprising their kids with news of a vacation to Disney with lots of smiles, excited screams, and perhaps, even some happy tears!

Here are some fun ways to surprise your children with a trip to visit Mickey!

  • Simply….don’t tell them until you are on your way there! It takes stealth and sneakiness to plan a trip without little ears overhearing, not to mention getting everyone’s suitcase packed but it’s a lot of fun too especially if you have younger kids who haven’t yet grasped the concept of time. You might also save a bit of your sanity by eliminating the “is it time yet?” component that might otherwise linger for the months leading up to the big event. Depending on your mode of transportation, you might not tell them until you arrive at the airport or when you are pulling into the parking areas.
  • For older children, let them in on the surprise earlier so they can participate in the planning process. You might be surprised what they are interested in doing, seeing, or eating. Fill their rooms with red, yellow, and black balloons, close the door, and wait for them to come home from school.

I was born and raised in Los Angeles to parents who enjoyed traveling - exploring sites, tasting local flavors, and experiencing traditions from other cultures. They introduced us to the world at a young age. That love to explore has continued, and the journey has led me to become a professional travel planner. I now get to share the world with not only my own family but also all the families who entrust their special vacations with me. #dreamjob
