View Full Version : The Third Times A Charm Trip Preparations

11-29-2009, 09:10 PM
This trip with our children and good friends was originally planned for January 2009 and was postponed until September. A few real life events caused another postponement. We are now scheduled for January 20-26 at The Grand Floridian. It appears the third time will be the charm and I am starting to make restaurant plans. We are 4 adults and 4 children. DW and I are giving the trip as a Christmas present to our children (DS, 13 and DDS twins 10). The hardest part will be for me to keep my mouth shut until Christmas

I'm glad that you are finally getting to go! Happy planning and happy surprise! It'll be worth keeping it a secret until then.

We are working on some ideas for making it a suprise on Christmas morning

I wasn't certain it was possible, however, I kept the trip a secret until Christmas morning. We set up a mystery present where the letters "M", "I", "C", "K", "E" and "Y" were hidden around the house. Our children followed clues to find each letter, not in correct sequence, and the "M" was hidden taped to a box under the tree. Inside the box were a Mickey and Minnie and a 2010 Kids Guide To Disney World.

The excitement in our house is very real and the trip arrives in less than 4 weeks. Now our entire family can participate in the planning process
