Since we drive to WDW I buy the girls a 'gift/surprise' for each day of our trip. Last year I put them in lunch bags with the Tinkerbell crew on them and they opened one per day, things like: a trading pin, a vinylmation, a autograph book, etc. This year I'm only doing it on the days we are actually on the road, there's so many exciting things at WDW there's no need to have them for days during our stay. So today, I bought a DS game for the trip there and another for the way home (got GREAT deals on eBay!). I've also gotten them Muppet vinylmations! Anyone got another ideas?
I like your car idea! On long car trips, my girls earn a dollar for each hour there is no complainin or whining. Then, when we get to our destination, they have a little more spending $. Now, they don't complain and I don't even have to remind them. :) - BagGal  221.4 #31 11:58AM
Disney activity or coloring books to keep them busy in the car, travel size games and card games, or a coupon for a Disney treat of their choice. I'm sure your girls love their surprise! - Andrea84  625.3 #7 5:25PM
I did that for the plane ride. My son loved it!  - disneyworldsbiggestfan  53.6 #88 5:25PM
We are doing a gift pre-Disney this year for the first time!  Since we are expected for dinner at 1900 Park Fare within a few hours of landing and will need an autograph book right away, I decided to just give them a gift ahead of time...  an official 2012 black Disney drawstring bag (that I plan to have monogramed with their names!), pin lanyard with starter pins (will add the ones you sent as well, yay!!), Mickey and Minnie wooden bobble head pens, fun Disney themed snacks for the plane, AND this year I created their very own personalized digital autograph books from blurb.com.  I can't wait to get them in later this week - they will be so fun and unique, I will post pics as soon as we get them.  :) - mrsincredible  766.3 #6 5:30PM
You have the best ideas, Disneygirl! - ally  505.9 #11 8:19PM
Scratch offs at every gas station yous stop at! Lol - Boardwalkgirl  54.9 #86 8:39PM
My mom used to do that! Was the best surprises! - amandapanda3  38.9 #104 11:35PM
That's a great idea. - 5disneylovers  770.6 #5 12:16AM
Fun! I do the little gifts too, one each day. Last trip I gave my girls a Minnie necklace, a pin, some Minnie lip gloss, etc, etc. My mom comes with us and she can't resist giving them little gifts too. The girls had so much fun with the surprises we gave them, they didn't ask to buy anything at any of the shops until the last day we were there. - BagGal  221.4 #31 11:55AM
