Just Told The Kids - Excitement Overload!!

Just told the kids we're going to Disney, in 19 days!! Talk about excitement overload. The eldest thinks it's awesome as he's 13 the day after we get there and is now frantically planning. The youngest (8) said tonight when he went to bed "Everyone says dreams don't come true, but this one has!"

Think we have got the destination right on this holiday!!

That's so brilliant. You've made me so excited about yelling our boys. Less than 3 months for us now and they don't have a clue.

Have a fantastic time.

Hi Charlieak,

we have kept it a secret for over 12 months, it was hard going but worth every second when we told them.

Aaah your post made me really smile! I remember when we kept the secret from our children (now 20 and 20) and only told them on the day we were going! There faces are recorded in my memmory forever!

Imagine their faces when they arrive at the Magic Kingdom for the first time! Hope you all have a magical holiday :)

Wow, good for you all for keeping the secret - so exciting!! We talked for a long time about going to Disney but actually only booked it about five weeks before leaving. My son turned 10 just a few days after getting home (his bday was July 3 and we didn't want to be there for the American holiday on July 4th because we thought it would be too busy). He wore his happy bday button every day and loved the attention (and of course all the bday cupcakes)! Can't wait until we get to go back again someday!
