Today is the day we head to Disney Social Media Moms. To say that My Sweetie and I are excited is an understatement. We have been bursting. Why bursting? Because we haven’t told the Princess yet that we’re going! As in I took her to school today, and she thinks its a normal Wednesday with soccer practice tonight. But it is in no way a normal Wednesday.


How we have kept this a secret I have no idea. It has been SO hard! However, I think it’s going to be worth it. This is our one and only chance to surprise her with a trip to Disney. We go every fall so going in the spring is totally out of the realm of her imagination. We can’t wait to tell her and watch her reaction.

The biggest question was how to tell her. We decided to make a video to show her when she gets in the van. I’m picking her up from school a little early. She thinks she has a dentist appointment. (FYI – She HATES the dentist so was dragging to start the day.)  When she sees Daddy in the car and the car packed, she’ll know something’s up. We plan to show her the video below right away to explain the surprise. I can’t wait!!

The plan is to record her reaction. We’ll share it with you as soon as you we can.

  15. […] Now, if you don’t want the blue one, they have a myriad of other choices, many of which also contain a place for photos. We ended up getting a Princess one with room for pictures about four years ago. I’ve yet to print the pictures that need to be placed inside. Maybe you’re better at actually getting pictures printed than I am. In that case, the picture one might be for you. You can check out some the different types they sell at the parks here. You could even order it to have before you head out on your trip. There’s no better way to say “Guess what? You’re going to Disney!” than give a child a gift of an autograph book and pen. We sorta did that once. […]
