Disney World Here We Come!
Finally! After months of all the stealth Disney World trip planning, the girls were able to get in on the secret on Christmas morning.
The girls came downstairs, at the crack of dawn, to find the tree lit up and surrounded by tons of wrapped and unwrapped toys. The blue wintery wrapped and unwrapped gifts from Mom and Dad, and the striped gifts from the big man, Santa. But. The most special were right in the front; 2 giant, red, overstuffed gift bags adorned with black vinyl Mickey Mouse heads from BOTH Santa and Mickey Mouse!
They raced for those Disney bags shouting, then started in on reading every letter and unwrapping every stitch of wrap meticulously. The girls were making noises I never thought possible to come out of the mouths of small children like them!
So, what was inside those bags anyway?
Customized embroidered clothes made by the very talented KatieJoBelle’sBoutique, a.k.a, Mrs. Claus! She had made personalized tees, sculpted Disney character clips, Minnie Mouse dresses and hair bands last trip that will come along on this trip, too! Below are shots of the two personalized handmade chevron striped dresses, the Disney character embroidered/personalized tee shirt and tulle skirt, a Minnie Mouse hair bow, and embroidered striped tees. The other two items, the dresses, are from the Disney Store.
Luckily, every gift went over phenomenally well. They were absolutely over the moon with all the detail Santa put into their presents, especially to find out what resorts Santa planned for us. I never have seen two kids overjoyed over resorts before.
The insanity of all the secret planning was well well wellllll worth it! I cannot tell you how much joy it brought to me seeing their faces light up and hearing the squealing over the fun things. Especially, when my oldest held up her button Mickey head tee saying she thought that was the most special gift of the trip stuff because it was purple. 🙂 She held onto it for an hour!
We haven’t spent a minute of our days since the big reveal Christmas morning discussing anything else. The girls cannot wait to get back to Disney World! And, well, we cannot wait either! I cannot wait to introduce them to the rides that were closed on our last trip; which happen to be my favorite!– Thunder Mountain and the Khali River Rapids! They are going to flip! Though knowing Splash Mountain will be closed was a big bummer! But it is still going to be an amazing trip!
