I am always so impressed with parents who can keep the secret while planning a surprise Disney vacation. Have you ever wanted to surprise your kids with a Disney World vacation, but just unsure the best way to do it? Whether it’s a first visit or a special celebration, it can be a lot of fun to plan a surprise Disney vacation. Here are ten different ways to give your kids a surprise Disney vacation!
1. Scavenger Hunt: You can hide clues throughout your home where they will eventually find the last clue revealing the big trip. You can even have them pick up small gifts at each stop to compile at the end. Some of the earlier clues can be more generic like sunglasses, new luggage, hats, and swim suits.
5. Letter from Mickey: You can make a letter from Mickey Mouse for your kids letting them know that you’ll be coming to visit. Or, if you book your Disney World vacation with us, we will send your family a letter from Mickey Mouse in addition to an autographed picture to help with your surprise.
6. Custom Shirts: You can reveal your surprise Disney vacation with new shirts! If you are crafty, there is plenty of inspiration on Pinterest or you can always order some from Etsy or Amazon.
7. Character Call: If you are sailing on a Disney cruise, you can schedule a FREE call prior to your sailing from Mickey, Goofy, or Mickey and Minnie together. This can be a great way to tell the kids about your cruise!
8. Surprise at the Airport: If your kids aren’t big enough to read, you may be able to make it all the way to the airport before having to reveal the big surprise. Imagine the look on their faces as you pull up and they see all of the airplanes coming in and out!
9. A Box Full of Balloons, Characters, and More: If you can get a big cardboard box, fill it with Disney inspired goodies like balloons, plush, confetti, and more. Your kids will love unwrapping it and opening it to find surprises with clues revealing your vacation.
