Tomorrow morning will start like any other morning. We will get the kids up, feed them breakfast and get them dressed. They will brush their teeth and hair and put on their shoes and socks. Then, we will load them into the car.
But, instead of driving to Katie’s school, we will drive to the airport and board a plane for Disneyland for the weekend, where we will celebrate Matthew’s third birthday.
The kids have absolutely no idea that we’re going. And Craig and I are so insanely excited to surprise them.
Years ago, when Craig and I were on our way to get married in Antigua, we sat on the plane beside a little girl who told us that her parents woke her up that morning and announced that they were taking her to Disney World. I will never forget the look of pure joy on her face.
And now, Craig and I have the opportunity to give Katie and Matthew that same gift of surprise.
This will be their first trip to Disneyland and I may not sleep tonight from all of this anticipation.
We’ve been studying the maps and we’ve spent so much time on their website that we’re feeling overwhelmed by all there is to see and do.
So, if you’ve taken your kids to Disneyland, I’d love to know your top three things that we simply must see and do.
We’ll have access to both Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure.
What do your kids remember most about their visit?
Is there anything that we should skip?
Can you think of anything that we must know before going?
