    Does anyone have creative ideas on how to let our families know that we are taking all of them to Disney World, all expenses paid, for Christmas? We are going at Christmas, but in a yr. but I don't know a fun way to present this for their Christmas present

    Hi Diane!

    How fun! My husband and I recently surprised our kids with a Disney cruise and struggled with this very idea!

    We finally settled on a scavenger hunt! We started off my giving the kids a treasure map that lead them to a clue. That clue lead them on a hunt all over the yard for more clues. Finally, they "discovered" treasure under a tree in the backyard. In that spot was a picture of the Disney cruise ship with the date's we were sailing. They had a fun time with the hunt, and still talk about it today!

    Another idea I have would be to wrap up a Disney park ticket (or a homemade certificate for one) for each person. Then, ask that they unwrap them all at the same time!

    And, last but not least, if you like to play with photos and slide shows you can put together a photo show of family photographs through the years. Towards the end, you can start putting in pictures of Mickey, Minnie and Walt Disney World. Finally, the end can be a note that says something like "We can't wait to make more Magical memories with you next Christmas at Walt Disney World!".

    Hope this gives you a few good ideas! Have fun surprising everyone!
