    How can i keep it a secret that we are Staying at the Grand Floridian, and not just "driving around" to see it when we get to the parking attendant? can i pass him a note?

    Hi Karen!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I love planning surprises for Walt Disney World Resort vacations! In fact, I usually try to include at least one surprise for my kids during our trip. I think the easiest way to pull this one off would be by planning to enjoy one of the excellent restaurants at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. Often, reservations can be difficult to get, but I have always been able to get reservations pretty easily at the Grand Floridian Cafe, even last minute reservations. Guests who are dining at one of their restaurants will enjoy complimentary parking at the hotel. So when you arrive at the parking attendant, let him or her know that you have a dining reservation, they will confirm your reservation with your MagicBand or your name and confirmation number and you will be free to park and enjoy your meal. On your way back through the lobby, you could make a quick detour to the check-in desk to reveal the surprise that you will be staying there for your trip!

    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
