Since the park opened in 1971, Disney has been a magical destination for children, and many parents love surprising their kids, either for Christmas or another special time of year. While it may seem impossible, there are plenty of ways to surprise your child with a Disney trip. Here are some tips on how to make it happen.
The key to any successful surprise is first having your Disney vacation booked. Planning out every detail of your vacation so everything goes off without a hitch is important. When you work with me, I’ll be your travel expert. I specialize in helping families plan the ultimate vacations, and I especially love planning Disney trips! Planning the trip can be overwhelming so let me take that off your hands, so you can focus on the BIG surprise!
Create an Exciting Build-Up
Creating an exciting build-up is essential when surprising your child with a Disney trip. You can send them clues or hints leading up to the big reveal. You could also create a scavenger hunt or hide clues around the house that will lead them to their surprise. This will help build anticipation and excitement and make the reveal even more special. One of the best ways to do this is by creating a surprise box for your kids!
How to Make a Disney Surprise Box
A Disney surprise box will surely bring a smile to the face of any Disney fan. Here’s how you can make your own Disney surprise box:
The first step in making your Disney surprise box is gathering the necessary supplies. First, you’ll need something to put your items in, such as a cardboard box or plastic container. You’ll also need some tissue paper and ribbon to decorate the box. Finally, you’ll need some items to fill the box with. This could be anything from Disney-themed toys and games to clothing, accessories, snacks, and treats.
Choose Your Theme
Once you have all of your supplies gathered, it’s time to choose your theme for the surprise box. You could go with a classic Disney theme, such as Mickey Mouse or Cinderella, or choose something more specific and modern, like Frozen or Moana. Once you have selected your theme, it will be easier to pick out items that fit into that theme for the surprise box.
Fill Your Box
Now that you have all your supplies and have chosen your theme, it’s time to start filling up your surprise box! Start by laying down some tissue paper at the bottom of the box, and then add all the items you chose for the surprise box. Make sure everything fits nicely in the box, and there is enough room for everything before closing it up.
Add Finishing Touches
Once all of your items are inside the box, it’s time to add some finishing touches! Tie a ribbon around the outside of the box and add any other decorations that fit your chosen theme. You can also include a card with your trip announcement or use this moment to announce you’re going!
Other Magical Ways To Surprise Kids With a Disney Trip
Of course, surprise boxes are fun, but there is no limit to how many creative ways you can surprise your kids with a Disney tip! Other ideas include having a character call to invite them, sending an announcement or invitation in the mail, making surprise shirts, surprising them at the airport, or planning a scavenger hunt!
Make it Personal
Making the surprise personal is another excellent way to make it even more special for your child. For example, you could create custom gifts or decorations related to your favorite Disney character or movie. You could also plan out special activities they’ll love during the trip, such as meeting their favorite characters or going on rides they’ve always wanted to try. When you work with me, I can personalize all the details to make sure you have squeezed the most magic possible into your trip!
Finally, don’t forget about packing thoughtfully for the trip! Make sure you bring all essentials, such as clothes, toiletries, and snacks, but also consider adding some extra surprises, like toys or treats that your child will love discovering during the trip. This will help make their experience even more magical!
A surprise Disney trip will surely be an unforgettable experience for your child! With careful planning and thoughtful touches, you can make it extra special by surprising them with this fantastic gift. Contact me today for a quote so I can start planning your next adventure!
