Our First Disney Trip: Telling the Kids!

When it came to telling the kids about our trip to Disney World, I was so torn. On the one hand, I really love the idea of putting them in the car and telling them we’re going RIGHT NOW. On the other hand, it’s going to take two days to drive there so that’ a little anticlimactic. Also, I wanted to give them time to get excited – I’ve been SO EXCITED for so many months, now they get to anticipate all the magic too.

After they ran around screaming for a while, we watched all the Disney vacation planning videos on the website then went to YouTube and watched roller coaster ride-throughs of everything I thought might be scary. This is their ONE CHANCE to ride stuff (for the next 5+ years, at least) so I need them not to refuse because they’re not sure what to expect. It was a good idea – Caroline is nervous about Haunted Mansion and Evan is nervous about the Mine Train, so I have a week to talk them both into trying it at least once. DISNEY WORLD HERE WE COME.

I’ll let the video do the rest of the talking:

    I love that they didn’t get it till you told them, lol. We did the surprise day of telling at the airport and Rory said she would have rather been told ahead of time, so maybe it’s good you told them now. Also, the mine ride at Magic Kingdom was our all time favorite! Dexter was 3.5 when we went and he LOVED it! Make sure you guys go on that one for sure!

    Bahaha. I watched this with Knox and as soon as Evan pulled out the lanyard and pins he yelled, “ahhhh that’s for DISNEY WORLD!!!!” lol. And again when Lincoln pulled out the magic band. I’ve spent the last half hour fielding questions about your trip, reminiscing about ours last summer and when can we go again.
