    we leave Wednesday night to fly to Disney for a week! The best part - as of right now out two girls have no idea!!!!!
    We are surprising them when we pick them up at school tomorrow. My husband has rented a Mickey Mouse costume to dress up in and pick them up from school!!!! I have a t-shirt and an autograph book that I am going to wrap up for him to give them when they first see him!!! The girls are 9 and 6 so I think we are going to have an absolute blast!!! Oh and when we get there they are going to have another surprise - we are going with another couple and their four girls! All the girls get along great! Both families hang out whenever we can!!!!
    Sorry so long!!! Can you tell I am excited!!!!!!!!!!LOL :thumbup: :lol:

    AWESOME!!!! I love to surprise our kids with trip as well. We didn't tell ours about going to Disney, but a week before we were leaving my Mom spilled the beans. She was as excited as they were about going.

    Have wonderful trip. Praying that both families have a safe and fun fill trip. Wear comfortable shoes and dress for hot weather. Take a back pack for snacks and water. These are what cost so much. We found that buying souvenirs outside the park was less expensive.
    Have fun.

    Thanks for the tips about snacks! I am packing two pairs of runners so I can switch between them!
    My inlaws almost slipped the other day, my father in law told the girls to say hi to Mickey for him! I just ignored him and they did not mention anything or even ask! Close call!

    What a perfect age!!! They will love the trip! Are you going to Southern California or Florida? It's the perfect time of year to go, no crowds!! Disneyland is decorated for Halloween. Pumpkins, bright leaves and the smell of fall in the air. It's really warm, so dress cool, they will let you bring unopened bottles of water in your back pack, and snacks. Have fun!

    Have a great time! Disneyland was always fun when my 3 sons were young. All grown now so I haven't seen Mickey in a long time. Say hello from all of us 'not so' grown ups!
