So, many of you know that I cannot keep a secret, so that rules out surprising the girls with a trip to WDW. So, this year I decided to not mention which resort(s) we are staying at. My 9 year old saw my agenda and saw the days that say checking into AKL and checking into BC. As you guessed it, she has pretty much figured it out, but I won't confirm anything with her and since I book next week I still have time to change my mind, LOL!! Darn kids, can't keep a secret from them no matter how hard I try!!
I put down the deposit for our trip next year. It is for my son's tenth b-day. I was going through possible hotel choices. I just said it was for a future trip. He also doesn't know which hotel we are staying at. Art of Animation ended up being more than I planned since we don't want to be in the Little Mermaid room. So I told him it cost more then All Stars. Made the deposit while he put his laundry away for AoA, Cars suite. I am keeping it secret for as long as possible. - Lelundrial  439.3 #417 11:24PM
The best thing to do folks is lie to them. What I mean is make an dummy list of hotels that you WON'T be staying at. Leave it in their sight. But keep the real plans hidden somewhere else. - IndyandMarion  1235.1 #1 8:54AM
Don't worry, surprise or no surprise, you are going to gave a blast!! - ncjal  200.6 #33 8:45PM
They're just too smart for their own good! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #16 8:56PM
I wanted to keep it from my son until we left but I am like a kid in a candy store...looking up stuff on the Internet, watching the planning DVD, etc lol!! - ccmom  184.1 #39 9:20PM
You know what they say, a kid can find anything or figure out something as long as it doesnt pertain to school - tomevans13  249.8 #27 9:21PM
If there is a suprise I have to know and drive everyone crazy. Will you adopt me?! I'll promise to be surprised lol - TinkTinkTink  189.8 #36 9:23PM
Well, if you're like me, my parents could never keep a secret from me either, haha!! And, look how good we turned out!! ;) - mrsincredible  765.7 #6 9:26PM
We aren't telling our 7 year old about our upcoming trip and it's driving me crazy! I can't keep a secret either but so far so good! Also one of her friends was bragging about going August 10th.and she said to DD, maybe your parents will take you to a park and started laughing at her! I looked at her and said we sure are! To THE Park! - girlonfire  52.6 #89 11:06PM
My children are driving me crazy ESP with the count down. Lol. - 5disneylovers  769.9 #5 11:13PM
DizneyGirl--my 9-year-old is the same way! She would probably be a little disappointed if I tried to surprise her, though. She likes to plan, make lists, and research Disney too. I've created a Disney planning monster! :) Good luck with the surprising! - BagGal  221.4 #31 1:28PM
