Okay so our next trip us going to be a surprise for the kids, what I want to know is how do you all do it! I can't even keep quiet about going to little thinks around here lol, the minute I know it is out of my mouth!!

We have only done two surprise trips. The first was for the oldest, he requested some alone time with nana and papa so we picked him up for dinner and took a drive. When we arrived at the air port he asked what are we doing here ? We told him we were going to have dinner and watch the airplanes take off. We parked the car and popped the trunk and he looked confused when he saw our luggage and again asked why? We said we are going to Disney! How , I have no clothes? Then we pulled out his duffle which had a new wardrobe in it just for Disney! He was so excited! It was a great trip! The second one was an extended trip to SC. We stayed the weekend there for a birthday party and was "heading home" after we stopped for breakfast. It was my older daughter and her daughter, and the two youngest grandsons. On the road we are heading to Disney and we are probably about 3 hours away and they are asking are we almost home? I told them it was goin to be a little bit just relax, take a nap and when you wake up we will almost be home. Well they did, and it was perfect, they woke up just before crossing under the welcome home sign! Screems of joy and clapping filled the van, it was amazing!!! Lately though I just surprise them with meal experiences like the luau and lunch with jake and friends which in their words were " that was the best dinner ever ". Sorry for being long winded. Such great memories! Happy planning everyone!πŸ˜ƒ - mmddgp  1979.6 #3 5:36AM

We told our kids we are going but don't tell them when so we can talk about it but still they are surprised. - Tinkerbella2000  26.1 #152 5:45PM
I like that idea, that might be the only way I can get through it lol - ccmom  187.5 #49 6:49PM
It's the only way for me because I need to talk about Disney all the time. It's also nice because I like their opinions on dinners and planning. Last time we surprised then at 5am this time we plan too pick them up after school and tell them they have a dentist appointment but really we will head to the airport. It makes the surprise a little more exciting. - Tinkerbella2000  26.1 #152 7:07PM
I have almost ruined it a few times with slip ups. I was able to cover them be referring to our last trip. I also laid the prep for a trip, just not a mention of specific place. I also have says things like, "In order to save money we have to fly through Orlando to get to South Carolina." - EmperorsHandLelundrial  1105.7 #208 6:24PM
Sneaky!! - ccmom  187.5 #49 6:50PM
muwhahahaha - EmperorsHandLelundrial  1105.7 #208 7:24AM
We booked our trip in March. Then for our daughter's birthday announced our trip and that we'd celebrate her birthday while there. During those few weeks it was HARD. My kiddos love to have input on the restaurants, what park we go to the first day. I think they would be disappointed if we didn't include them in the planning. Good luck! Don't let it slip! - DizneyGirl  1592.5 #5 4:47AM
The first year we went we all planned it together for several months, the next time they knew we were going just not when. THis time has been a complete secret and we are not telling them until the night before our flight. It's early in the morning or we would have waited until we arrived at teh airport. It has been difficult to keep the secret because we often talk about our visits to the park, bu that has also been part of the fun knowing htat they hafve no clue that they are in for an amazing surprise in just 2 weeks now. - kennewhitson  3.5 #31498 9:04AM

It will stay the same until someone else gets enough points and quality to pass a couple more people. Even though two people on the list don't post much they still are ahead of the rest of us in quality points so they earned their spot. And Plumiegirl you post QC so you're qc score is high! πŸ˜„ - secretagentangel  15086.9 #7 8:33PM
when you are at the top you tend to move slower because its the same folks that frequent the parks most. So hence the top ten.. trolls ;) - Plumiegirl  10912.5 #11 9:55PM
Good job everyone! Congrats on the quality content, Dave!  - PrincessCarmen  2599.3 #69 9:12PM
