    I'm saving all the money ($200) I can for our Dec trip. I want to do something special for my bro 14, sis 4 and cuz (boy) 5 and me (Girl 11). Doing 4 pks, Xmas party. Boys like lego/star wars. Sis Tink/princ. No BBB/ PL. Doing lots ch meals. Any ideas? TY

    Kimberly,

    You get the sister/cousin of the year award!

    First remember that just being at Walt Disney World is a special event. Don't feel like you have to spend all your hard saved money on something. Consider it "mad money" that you can use if needed.

    Think of something fun for all of you to experience together. I would turn this into a game. Pair up, putting one of the older kids (you and your brother) with one of the younger, into two teams. On your Epcot day try out the Agent P.'s Wold Showcase Adventure. What you can do is compete for a prize. First team to finish gets a choice of the following prizes that you all four get to share;

    • Kitchen Sink: Dig into this ice cream treat at the nearby Beach Club resort.
    • Ice Cream and Surrey Bike Rides on the Boardwalk: Losers do all the pedaling!
    • Plan the Day: Winner's choose the first 5 attractions for the next day!
    If you are set on spending all that money, get everyone a small present at Downtown Disney to remember the trip. Maybe Christmas ornaments with picture of the four of you, or with your names painted on? Perhaps photo frames and add a favorite picture of you all. I know that may not sound as fun as a toy, but even my little girls (4 and 6) cherish pictures from our trips because it reminds them of all the fun we had!

    Write me back if you need more ideas!

    Have a magical vacation!
