So we just got permission to take my baby sister (she'll be 13) to WDW in September. It's our second trip (my husband and me) but our son (he'll be 18 months) and my sisters first trip. We want to surprise her and make it special, we can't decide how we want to tell her. Obviously we have quite some time but any suggestions would be appreciated. Also I should mention we're experts of Disneyland. We've had passes for the last 7 years and my sister has had a pass for the last 5. We were thinking of either giving her a box on hints on her birthday or telling her once we got to the airport. Any Suggestions of how to surprise her as well as must do's at WDW are welcome! TIA!

I'm a big fan of having her bags packed and telling her at the airport! I would cry! As for a must do at WDW, you have to have dinner at Narcoose's or the California Grill around 8 to be there for the Wishes fireworks display at the MK. Since you are directly across the seven seas lagoon you have an ideal, less populated view of the MK and they pipe in the music and commentary from jiminey cricket. It brought tears to my eyes......a very special moment. - disneychk  23.1 #152 9:17AM
We just surprised our two kids age 5 and 1 back in September. They were clueless. We told them right before we arrived at the hotel. I like your idea of clues on her birthday. Send her on a scavenger hunt leading up to the big reveal - Ariel42  262.9 #28 9:34AM
If you can get a flight around 11, 12 or 1 and then an hour or two before you leave for the airport hand her a suitcase(a Disney one if you can) with some things from Disney like a lanyard with some pins for trading on it if she doesn't have a pin collection if she does see If you can order some wdw pins or trading pins, and maybe some other wdw related stuff. Then tell her to pack her bags because we are going to disney world. - nodell111  166.4 #51 12:15PM
A surprise is fun, but not giving her advanced notice so she can pack and buy what she wants to bring doesn't seem like a good way to go.
- Westcoast  151.7 #2614 2:46PM
Yes you should give advanced notice so she could pack - nodell111  166.4 #51 3:08PM
I think the box of hints is a great idea. Film her reaction...it will be priceless!! - Tinkerbell1265  442.0 #17 9:43AM
She's very lucky! I'd like the box of clues if it was me. You could also have like a scrap book of your Disneyland pics ands have the last page be wdw stuff like cut out the castle and paste a pic of your fam and her there lol except the surprise is best at the last possible minute! - Polynesiangirl  98.4 #69 10:03AM
Go to YouTube you'll find tons of cute ideas! - Huskerkelsey  7.3 #300 11:25AM

My parents and hubby did that for my bday. Best gift ever. They had my bags packed and in the car. When they told me they handed me a plane ticket holder and said to make sure I wore my sunscreen. Your sister is so lucky to have a sister like you - MrsaHoltgraves  35.0 #123 2:40PM
Don't tell her, just get on the plane and don't let her look at where you are going! - amandapanda3  39.3 #116 2:42PM
Thanks, she deserves this trip and I'm bursting with excitment, I can't wait for us to go. She's a smart cookie though, she'll figure it out. - PrettyPixie  760.3 #229 9:39AM
Yes you should give advanced notice so she could pack - nodell111  166.4 #51 3:08PM
I think we'll tell her on her birthday after all. I want her to be able to plan and I'll figure out some fun things to give her. πŸ˜ƒ - PrettyPixie  760.3 #229 8:12AM
